We are looking for a Student or Graduate Assistants (20 – 30 hours/month) who will support our team at the earliest convenience until 31 August 2024 in the organisation of
the fifth jubilee edition of the Lower Saxony – Scotland Joint Forum, taking place at Leuphana University Lüneburg. The Joint Forum is an annual networking event intended to enhance the cooperation and academic exchange between researchers, students and staff from Lower
Saxonian and Scottish high education institutions.
The European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) was founded in 2019 by the University of Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom) and the Leuphana University of Lüneburg (Lower Saxony, Germany). ECAS is a joint undertaking of both universities and established as an...
ECAS is delighted to extend a warm welcome to twelve exceptional early-career beneficiaries who have been selected to participate in the esteemed Lower Saxony – Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme. These accomplished individuals represent the final round of grant recipients for the research period until the end of 2023. The programme received applications from regarded postdoctoral researchers and doctoral students hailing from renowned higher education institutions in both regions.
We are pleased to announce the publication of our very first White Paper. It is the result of the third edition of the Lower Saxony – Scotland Joint Forum, which took place in a hybrid format at the University of Glasgow in November 2022.
The Joint Forum focussed on the highly topical subject of Renewable Energies and Sustainability. Thereby, it embraced the vision of Lower Saxonian Prime Minister, Stephan Weil, to develop a Strategic Energy Partnership between both regions, which received further encouragement by the respective Lower Saxonian and Scottish ministries dealing with climate change, the environment as well as energy policy.
The next application period for postdoctoral applicants for the Lower Saxony – Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme ends on 31 March 2023. Please find all information about the programme and the application process here.
We are looking forward to receiving your submission!
We are excited to announce that the Lower Saxony – Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme has been extended to doctoral students! The new application period is now open and the project proposals can be submitted until 15 April 2023.
The deadline for applications for the third Open Call for the Lower Saxony – Scotland Tandem Fellowship Programme has been extended to March 31, 2023. The decision of the selection committee and the announcement of the new fellowships will be published in April 2023.
Thus, the start date of all upcoming fellowships has been moved to 1 May 2023, while 31 December 2023 remains unchanged as the intended end date. As the maximum duration of the fellowship has thus been reduced to eight months, the individual short-term stays are now limited to four months per fellow and will be funded with up to 1,400 EUR per person per month spent abroad.
We are looking for the earliest possible date for a Student Assistant (20 – 30 hours/month) who will support our team in continuing to build and shape ECAS as a successful research institution that can draw from the expertise of one of the oldest universities in the world, as well as of one of the most dynamic ones in the German university landscape.
We at the European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) are excited to remind you that the current application period for the LOWER SAXONY – SCOTLAND TANDEM FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME ends in just two weeks!
Proposals are invited from early career researchers, postdoctoral researchers or persons holding a postdoctoral position who have completed their PhD within the last ten years and have an employment contract (which extends for the length of the fellowship) with a Lower Saxonian or Scottish university, university of applied science or recognized higher education institution.
The third edition of the Lower Saxony – Scotland Joint Forum took place on 21 and 22 November 2022. For the first time, the event was hosted in a hybrid format – allowing for an in-person
experience at the University of Glasgow as well as online for all other participants.
Over 150 members from higher education institutions in Lower Saxony and Scotland took part in the
diverse programme spread over two days. This is outstanding, since for the first time, the event has
focused on a rather topical discussion on “Renewable Energies and Sustainability” instead of a
general exchange on subjects common to higher education institutions in both regions.
