Max Weber Center
The Max Weber Center for Advanced Cultural
and Social Studies is a specialist institution
at the University of Erfurt. It combines an
Institute for Advanced Study with a Graduate
School: internationally renowned scholars from
different disciplines (sociology, economics,
religious studies, law, philosophy, theology
and history) are appointed as Fellows on
a non-permanent basis. Their work contributes
to the research program of the Center ( www.uni-erfurt.de/maxwe).
Fellows appointed at the Center pursue research
projects that contribute to the core themes
of the Center and offer expert knowledge to
doctoral candidates and to post-doctoral researchers
working in similar fields of research.
The scholarship amounts to 820 EUR/month
and can be granted for up to three years. Every
fellow is entitled to a work station at the
Max Weber Center in Erfurt. Residence in Erfurt
and attendance at the Center’s seminars,
workshops, and public lectures are mandatory.
