CSS members contribute to the CSS research topics through temporary working groups that can lead to establishing (collaborative) third-party funded projects or further contribute to already existing ones. In addition, the CSS as an institution hosts third-party funded projects within the range of the CSS research foci that add to scientific discourses and build an important backdrop for discussion at the CSS.
The following research projects are hosted by the CSS, originated at the CSS or work closely with the CSS and involvement of CSS members.
Become a Researcher at the CSS
The CSS offers institutional attachment to third-party funded projects with thematic relevance to the research foci of the CSS. As an institutional actor, the CSS provides an organizational framework for interdisciplinary exchange and networking both within and outside the center and the university, as well as a platform for communicating members' research results to the public. In addition, there is the possibility to financially support new, interdisciplinary research ideas with start-up funds and to promote the activities of young scientists with grants.
For a successful and productive integration into the CSS each research project has to be assigned to at least one CSS member that acts as a host to the project.
The CSS board of directors decides about the admission. The number of projects that can be hosted by the CSS depends on the spatial and financial possibilities.
What we offer:
- The university will take over employer responsibilities during your funding period and provide the conditions necessary for you to carry out your project (e.g. provide a workplace at the CSS)
- Integration into the CSS as a research environment and the CSS network
- Introduction by the board of directors
- Participation in CSS event formats and as CSS members also in Working Groups
- (International) Visibility of the project through the CSS
How to apply:
