Dear all,
The call for applications for funded stays at GESIS is now open. Deadline for applications is April 27, 2018.
Please find the call below.
GESIS is the largest infrastructure institution for the Social Sciences in Germany, organized along five research departments that conduct research and offer research-based services on a wide range of empirical social research:

o   Computational Social Science <https://www.gesis.org/en/institute/departments/computational-social-science/>

o   Data Archive for the Social Sciences<https://www.gesis.org/en/institute/departments/data-archive-for-the-social-sciences/>

o   Knowledge Technologies for the Social Sciences<https://www.gesis.org/en/institute/departments/knowledge-technologies-for-the-social-sciences/>

o   Monitoring Society and Social Change<https://www.gesis.org/en/institute/departments/monitoring-society-and-social-change/>

o   Survey Design and Methodology<https://www.gesis.org/en/institute/departments/survey-design-and-methodology/>
GESIS Grants offer the possibility to collaborate closely with one of our GESIS staff members on a predefined project that may involve, for example, writing a scientific paper, working on a joint research proposal or planning an infrastructure project together to improve or expand GESIS services. During their stay, GESIS Grant holders are expected to actively participate in the academic activities of our institute. A report on the main achievements of the visit is expected upon completion of the stay at GESIS.
GESIS Grants reflect the wide range of GESIS' activities. We therefore invite applications from

1.      advanced doctoral candidates and postdocs up to four years after completing their doctorate studies AND

2.      representatives of research infrastructures who hold a university degree and who work in the area of data management, information retrieval, and other GESIS services<http://www.gesis.org/en/services/>.
Applicants may apply for a stay between one week and three months in the period from August 2018 to June 2019. Successful candidates will receive a travel grant that covers travel costs (economy class flight) plus an allowance of up to 2.000 Euro per month.
Interested candidates have to apply by using our online application form<https://www.hidden-professionals.de/HP/P_shorts/Now_Candid.aspx?jo=169388> to upload their CV and a cover letter describing the purpose of their visit and the expected outcomes. We recommend that applicants identify and contact at least one preferred GESIS cooperation partner prior to their application. A list of GESIS staff members can be found here<https://www.gesis.org/en/institute/staff/>. The keyword search via GESISwide Search<http://search.gesis.org> might also be helpful.
A selection board will evaluate all applications on a competitive basis. Applicants will be informed by June 30, 2018.
Deadline for applications is April 27, 2018.
