We envision SCRIPTS as an intellectually vibrant research hub with a substantial impact inside and outside of academia. SCRIPTS connects various academic disciplines and areas, fostering collaboration between researchers from all over the world. To enact this vision, the project is currently recruiting staff in the fields of science management, as well as administration and IT support during its startup phase. For academics, SCRIPTS offers several PhD and postdoc positions, either integrated in research projects or under the umbrella of the Berlin International College of Research and Graduate Training (BIRT). In general, excellent researchers at all levels of qualification are always welcome to spend a month or more at Freie Universität Berlin for intellectual exchange and global networking. We particularly welcome fellow scholars from the global South and from our partner institutions all over the globe. Specific measures aim at supporting early careers, and equal opportunities and diversity within SCRIPTS.
