The Research Group PhilETAS (Philosophy of Engineering, Technology Assessment, and Science) at ITAS (the Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis) at KIT invites applications for
a RESEARCH VISIT of up to six months.
The invitation targets researchers at risk and refugee researchers in countries suffering from conflict and war. In light of the war against Ukraine, we particularly encourage researchers from Ukraine to contact us.
Duration & starting date
We envision the guest researcher to stay for up to six months. The starting date is flexible.
What we offer
We offer a monthly stipend covering accommodation and living costs. At KIT, you will find an international academic environment at one of the eleven German Universities of Excellence. At ITAS,
researchers are committed to interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary cooperation with social scientists, engineers, policy makers, and the citizenry. They provide knowledge for action and point out possible solutions to global challenges for the benefit of politics, business, and society. At PhilETAS, the prospective guest researcher will be part of an international, stimulating, and inclusive research team.
