Two Programs for PhD students and Post-Doctoral Fellows at the University of Tübingen

The University of Tübingen in Germany has released calls for two programs for applicants from Matariki Partner Universities (Queen’s is part of the Matariki Network).

1. Teach @ Tübingen – Call for Applications from Matariki Partner Universities

The University of Tübingen’s Institutional Strategy provides financial support for expanding the number of courses it offers in English and for promoting the teaching competence of post-doctoral fellows or of PhD students who are at an advanced stage of their studies. This call for applications is especially fo-cused on our strategic partner universities in the Matariki Network of Universities (MNU). We welcome applications from MNU advanced PhD students or post-doctoral fellows who would like to expand their teaching experience while simultaneously expanding their research horizons with a working stay in Germany under the Teach-at-Tübingen (T@T) Program.

T@T candidates are asked to teach classes in English for approximately two hours (or more) per week during the semester, in agreement with the Vice-Dean of Academic Affairs of the respective Tübingen Faculty, where they will be based as a function of their research collaboration.

Candidates must have written agreement from the Tübingen professor with whom they propose to conduct research (Candidates are encouraged to make contact directly with Tübingen professors working in their field of research (http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/en/faculties.html ).
