CfA:Two URIS fellowships, University of Basel (autumn 2020 & spring 2021)

The initiative "Ukrainian Research in Switzerland" (URIS) is calling for applications for two URIS fellowships, one for the autumn semester 2020 and one for the spring semester 2021. The URIS fellowship enables the recipient to spend six months researching at the University of Basel. The fellowship programme is open to postdoctoral and senior scholars in the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences whose research has the potential to make a substantial contribution to a better understanding of the history, society, politics and culture of Ukraine.

The main working focus of URIS in the autumn semester 2020 and spring semester 2021 will be on "Ukraine and Europe in transition". The announcement of the two fellowships is particularly aimed at applicants working on issues with a trans-regional and/or present-day orientated dimension.

The call for applications (in English and German) and further information are attached to this e-mail and available at

The deadline for applications is 31.01.2020.
