PhD fellowships of three-year duration for research on Japan are once again available at the Heidelberg Center for Transcultural Studies.

We also have a formal double degree PhD agreement with Tohoku University.
The Graduate Programme for Transcultural Studies of the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context” at Heidelberg University welcomes applications for up to six doctoral scholarships beginning in the winter semester 2017/18.
The three-year programme offers a monthly scholarship of 1.200 Euro. It further supports its members in framing their research through advanced courses as well as individual supervision and mentoring. Half of the scholarships are reserved for young scholars from Asia.
Applicants are expected to propose a doctoral project with a strong affiliation to one of the four research areas of the Cluster (Governance & Administration, Public Spheres, Knowledge Systems, Historicities & Heritage). They must hold an M.A. or equivalent in a discipline of the humanities or social sciences with an above-average grade and provide proof of advanced language skills in English. Applications, including a CV, a letter of intention, a project proposal, a schedule for the dissertation, and two letters of recommendation are submitted through an Online Application System.
The deadline for applications is March 15, 2017.
After an initial evaluation and selection, applicants will be asked to get in contact with possible supervisors at the Cluster of Excellence to discuss their project proposal. The most promising applicants will be invited to present their projects to the selection committee around the end of May. Subsequently the scholarship holders will be selected.
