The DFG-Research Training Group Globalization and Literature. Representations, Transformations, Interventions established at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany), invites applications for

6 PhD Student Positions (65%, German TV-L scale 13)

starting October 1, 2016 for up three years, on the condition of a positive evaluation after 1,5 years. Remuneration is based on the E 13 salary bracket of the German Public Service Salary Scheme (TV-L). Additional funding for travel is also available.
The Research Training Group funded by the German Research Council (DFG) sets out to examine the function of literature in processes of globalization from a broad historical perspective, ranging from antiquity to the present day. The research interests focus on the ways in which literature both creates and results from the cultural, economic, and political dynamics collectively described as globalization : the ways in which literature creates ‘worlds’ as well as the formation of ‘World Literature’.
Researchers work in close consultation with a group of supervisors whose fields of competence include literature written in English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, and other languages. The study program, including critical theory and theories of globalization, is designed to provide a forum for intense exchange between fellows, professors, and visiting scholars from the fields of literary studies and social studies.
A more detailed account of the research program (in German) can be found at : http://www.grk-globalisierung.lmu.de

Applications (in English or German) are invited from highly-qualified graduate students. Applicants should have a university degree equivalent to Master level in literature, with a G.P.A. above the average. In exceptional cases, admission is possible on the basis of a B.A. (honours). Their research projects should contribute to the thematic focus of the Research Training Group. Therefore, the outline of the research project should make an explicit connection to the research profile of the group. Projects that include the exploration of earlier historical periods are particularly welcome.

Teaching and discussions will be bilingual. Applicants must therefore have an adequate comprehension level of both English and German, and speak at least one of these languages fluently. Please provide evidence of your language competence.

Applications are submitted via an online platform only, where you can upload all the necessary documents (see below) in PDF or JPEG.
