Supporting Early Career Researchers

DIMAS provides a base for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers based with the DIMAS professors, as well as offering two postdoctoral positions that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the Department.

It also continues several long-standing initiatives, including the Berkeley-Regensburg Doctoral Exchange Program, the Area Studies Master's Prize, and supporting the activities of the area studies-focused Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies.

Find out more details, including any current calls for applications, about the collaboration with the University of California, Berkeley, and about the Master's Prize on the pages below.

The DIMAS Postdoctoral and Doctoral Members are also organizing a series of lunchtime sessions aimed at discussing current debates in area studies, ongoing projects and other aspects of being an early career researcher, such as publication strategies and application writing.

The next two sessions are scheduled for 12 June and 17 July 2024 in Room S.214 at 12:15. See below for more details.
