Jobs and Grants

Doctoral and postdoctoral positions

For academics, SCRIPTS offers several doctoral and postdoc positions, either integrated in research projects or under the umbrella of the Berlin International College of Research and Graduate Training (BIRT). The doctoral programme of the Berlin Graduate School for Global and Transregional Studies (BGTS) offers three-year positions for doctoral students. The International Research College (IRC) offers one-year positions for postdoctoral fellows.

International visiting scholars

Excellent researchers at all levels of qualification are always welcome to spend a month or more at SCRIPTS for intellectual exchange and global networking. SCRIPTS invites researchers who bring either a project initiative with funding on their own or a project initiative that is targeted at externally funded programmes. Guest researchers who are still in the process of applying for external funding can apply for affiliation with SCRIPTS and gain support in the application process. The IRC invites scholars from around the world, especially those from international partner universities and the Global South. Fellows are selected in cooperation with the Research Units and with an emphasis on equal opportunities and diversity within SCRIPTS. The visiting scholar programme also aims at supporting early careers.
