Call for Applications | Alfred Landecker Lecturer Program
The Alfred Landecker Foundation is pleased to invite applications from highly qualified postdocs in the humanities and social sciences, for a full-time lecturer program set to begin on October 1, 2023. Up to five university lectureships will each run for five years. The Alfred Landecker Foundation’s Academic Council is leading the selection process.
The program’s mission is to support outstanding, cutting-edge research by individuals on the following topics:
- - the history and aftermath of the Holocaust
- - the social and political transmission of memory of the Holocaust
- - the influence of conspiracy ideologies and
- - group-based enmity (for example, antisemitism and racism) as a structural threat to democracy.
Because there is no lack of research on such matters, they are explicitly looking for applications with innovative approaches that relate to present-day challenges regarding the politics of memory and democracy. They are also interested in projects that deal with the methods and practices for educating and imparting knowledge about history and threats to democracy in the digital age. The program specifically welcomes applications that entail ideas for how to communicate the research scientifically to a broader audience outside the academic world.
