JOBS: Salzburg Center for Ethics and Poverty Research

The Center for Ethics and Poverty Research (University of Salzburg) invites students to apply for Junior Fellowships and scholars to become Scholars in Residence (SiR) in Salzburg.  The Center, established in 2005, coordinates an international network and and conducts research in three areas:  
1) “Decent work” and questions of the future and ethics of work 
2) “European values” with a special focus on “solidarity” and an “ethics of sharing” 
3) “Resilience” and poverty alleviation 

Junior Fellows and SiR will become part of the research community at the Center for Ethics and Poverty Research. They should find space and time to do research and to pursue creative thinking. The Center aims at having three junior fellows and two Scholars in Residence at the same time. The Center is located in a scenic area on the Moenchsberg overlooking Salzburg – next to the newly established Center of European Union Studies of the University of Salzburg. It is expected that Junior Fellows and SiR:  
* work during their stay in one of the three research areas of the Center on a clearly defined question 
* are present during their stay in the Center 
* take part in the weekly Center Seminars 
* contribute to a publication of the Center. 

For SiR the Center will also organize a public lecture/seminar upon request. The Center will provide office space, accomodation and a monthly stipend of EURO 400. We invite students and scholars from all relevant disciplines to apply for the time period January 2009-December 2009. The suggested duration of the stay is a minimum of 2 months and a maximum of 12 months for students and a minimum of 1 month and a maximum of 4 months for scholars.
