On this page we provide information about posts available at CARMAH as well as selected programmes for which we especially invite applications. We also welcome applicants who have identified external funding sources – such as Alexander von Humboldt, DFG or EU Marie Curie – for which they wish to apply and would like us to act as host and/or supervisor.

To this end – and as we like to work with the chosen candidates to help ensure the best possible applications – please be sure to provide us with a full cv and outline proposal at least eight weeks (longer during vacation periods) before any deadline. We are also sometimes able to host externally funded visiting researchers, interns or PhD students (the latter usually via the Institute of European Ethnology). We receive many such enquiries and unfortunately can only support those of the highest quality and that have a very good fit with our research aims and profile.

Do have a look at our People- and Projects-sections (see left side of this page) to find out more about current research areas and potential matches of interest.
