These positions and scholarships are available from November 15, 2013 for two years initially.

Research at the Graduate School will be conducted in three broad, interdisciplinary fields: . Origins and Forms of Social and Political Change . Cultural Systems . Infrastructure, Migration and Transfer of Knowledge Research at the Graduate School especially focuses on interrelations and interdependencies between East and Southeast Europe and other regions of the World. A lively interest in interdisciplinary research questions and sensitivity for transnational and spatial perspectives are therefore expected. In the context of its primary focus on East and Southeast Europe, the Graduate School draws on the following disciplines: History, Literary and Language Studies, Art History, Theater Studies, Political Sciences and Law. In the context of cross-regional comparisons and transfer studies the School's expertise in Area Studies is complemented by insights from Chinese, Japanese and North American Studies.

A basic monthly stipend of 1.365 Euro is provided, plus travel funds, grants for material costs as well as child-care expenses in accordance with DFG guidelines where applicable. The holders of both the doctoral positions and the scholarships will be expected to successfully conduct an independent research project, which contributes to the graduate school's fields of research.

In an international working environment the Graduate School offers ideal conditions for the realization of excellent research projects in the Humanities as well as in Social and Legal Studies which focus on East and Southeast Europe, and the interconnections of this region with other regions of the world.
