Tailored opportunities: Visiting post-Doc fellowship in Global Transformations


The Bavarian School of Public Policy (BSPP) at the Technical University of Munich /
TUM School of Governance (TUM GOV) invites applications for a Visiting Post-Doc
Fellowship in Global Transformations for the 2018-2019 academic year. This
fellowship is motivated by the observation that we live in an age of dramatic
environmental, political, social, and technological transformations, which raise many
important governance challenges. Some transformations will be gradual, others quite
disruptive, and many will have a global reach. Some of these transformations are
causing public policy problems, others are the source of potential solutions.


This fellowship aims to enable outstanding scholars at any-post-doctoral stage of their
career to focus on researching political and/or policy-relevant aspects of such major
transformations. We especially welcome research proposals focused on the interaction
of politics and technological change and with a potential for collaboration with our
faculty members. BSPP/TUM GOV invites applications from candidates from any
relevant discipline, including political science, public policy/administration, history,
economics, business/management studies, sociology, cognitive psychology,
philosophy, communications, computational science, environmental studies, law and
