Carson Fellowships

The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society invites applications for its 2014–15 class of postdoctoral and senior fellows. The fellowship program, directed by Christof Mauch (LMU Munich) and Helmuth Trischler (Deutsches Museum) is designed to bring to Munich a cohort of excellent scholars who are working in the environmental humanities and related disciplines.

The Center will award fellowships to scholars from around the globe and from a variety of disciplines. Applicants’ research and writing should preferably pertain to one of the topics that will be at the core of the Center’s 2014–15 research agenda:
  • Transformation of Landscapes
  • Environmental Ethics, Politics, and Movements
  • Resource Use and Conservation
The program is a writing fellowship program; the Carson Center does not sponsor field trips or archival research. Fellows are expected to spend their fellowship in residence, to work on a major research project, to attend the weekly lunchtime colloquium, and to present their research at the Center.

As the first phase of financing for the Carson Center ends on 31 July 2015, all successful applicants must complete their fellowship by this date. Decisions about the fellowships will be announced in mid-August; fellows will have the opportunity to be in residence between October 2014 and July 2015. Fellowships will be granted for periods of 3, 6, or 9 months.

The Carson Center will pay for a replacement of the successful candidate at his or her home institution; alternatively it will pay a fellowship that is commensurate with experience and current employment.

The deadline for applications is 31 May 2014.  Applications should be submitted electronically in one pdf file and include the following information:
  • cover letter
  • curriculum vitae (maximum 5 pages)
  • project description (3,000 words maximum)
  • research schedule for the fellowship period
  • names/contact information of three scholars who might serve as references.
While applicants may write in either English or German, we recommend that they use the language in which they are most proficient. They will be notified about the outcome of their application by mid-August 2014. Please send applications (electronically only) in PDF format via e-mail to
