The newly established Hamburg International Graduate School for the Study of Regional Powers analyzes the emerging power shifts among non-European regions and states, related conflicts with respect to regional leadership within these regions as well as competition for spheres of influence, and the global formation of governance structures among new regional powers and the “old” powers of the OECD world.
Within the school, applications are being invited for Ph.D. scholarships starting 1 April 2010, for a duration of three years.
The programme is open to young academics in the fields of international relations/international political economy and comparative area studies.
Applicants must have an excellent M.A. or equivalent degree in hand by the time of appointment.
The school strongly encourage young candidates from abroad to apply.
The GIGA promotes gender equality and actively encourages applications from women.
Among equally qualified applicants, women will receive preferential consideration in those areas in which they are under represented.
