Dear all,

With apologies in advance for multiple postings, I'd like to bring to your
attention a post-doctoral position at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
It is not specifically for linguists, but linguists are of course
especially welcome to apply!

*The Martin Buber Society of Fellows in the Humanities and Social Sciences*

*Call for Applications for the Academic Year 2016-201**7*

The Martin Buber Society of Fellows, a joint venture of the Hebrew
University and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research
(BMBF), aims at fostering inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural academic
discourse at the highest level among outstanding young scholars
(post-doctoral) from Israel and Germany together with selected senior
colleagues. Each year the Academic Committee of the Martin Buber Society
selects up to ten exceptionally gifted young scholars (five from Israel,
five from Germany) in all fields of the humanities broadly defined and
including social sciences (with the exception of law and applied
economics). Scholars who have completed their Ph.D. at an Israeli or German
university, or citizens of Israel or Germany, who have received their Ph.D.
in other countries, are eligible to apply. The Ph.D. degree must have been
approved after October 1st, 2011 and no later than July 1st 2016

Fellows will become part of a vibrant scholarly community reflecting the
widest possible disciplinary spectrum in the humanities and social sciences
and embodying a spirit of shared intellectual adventure. *No special
connection to Jewish studies or Israel is required*. We are looking for
creative humanists and social scientists with broad intellectual horizons.
Discussions in the Martin Buber Society will take place in English (not in
Hebrew or German).

The Fellows will be asked to move to Jerusalem. They will receive a monthly
stipend of approximately 9000 Israeli shekels and a housing subsidy either
for apartments in the university’s Student Village on Mount Scopus or in
town. They will be given offices at the Hebrew University (Mount Scopus
campus) and will participate in bi-weekly seminars, lectures, study
excursions, and other interactive academic modes. Each will have the
opportunity to pursue his or her individual research under optimal
conditions for the term of his or her fellowship.

Scholarships are granted for maximum four years (*subject to a review at
the end of each year* *by the Academic Committee of the Martin Buber
Society*), beginning October 1, 2016, on the basis of a detailed outline
and description of a research project of major scope and innovative

The deadline for applications for 2016-2017 is December 10th 2015.

The Academic Committee of the Martin Buber Society will meet at the end of
February to choose next year’s fellows. Outstanding candidates will be
invited --at relatively short notice at the beginning of February -- for an
interview either in person or on Skype.
