as in the previous years we are able to announce eight doctoral scholarships at Heidelberg University and would also welcome the applications of students of any nationality studying Japan in a transcultural context. Besides training at Heidelberg University and obtaining the funding advertised below, successful applicants with a research focus on Japan would be eligible to participate in our joint doctoral training programmes with our main Japanese partner universities and spend up to a year at the universities of Kyoto and in Sendai (as part of our double degree programme with Tohoku University).

The programme offers a monthly scholarship of 1.200 Euro. It further supports scholarship holders in framing their research through advanced courses and individual supervision and mentoring. The scholarships start in the winter term 2013/14 and are granted for two years with the possibility of an extension for an additional year. Half of them are reserved for young scholars from Asia.

Applicants are expected to propose a doctoral project contributing to the general research framework of the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context. The Dynamics of Transculturality”. They must hold an M.A. or equivalent in a discipline of the humanities or social sciences with an above-average grade. Applications, including a CV, a letter of intention, a project proposal, a schedule for the dissertation, and recommendations are accepted until March 15, 2013, via the Online Application System.

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 in Heidelberg. Subsequently the scholarship holders will be selected.
