The “Einstein BUA/Oxford Visiting Fellow” programme will allow top Oxford researchers to bed into the Berlin research landscape over a period of three years. The Fellows will work closely with their German academic counterparts, build working groups and employ post-doctoral students.
The first four Fellows – Peter Rothwell, Tarik Abou-Chadi, Stefano Evangelista and Karen Leeder – cover a wide range of themes: stroke and dementia prevention, research on democracy and political parties, a sweeping re-evaluation of German culture and poetry, and a 20th century literary investigation into cosmopolitanism.
The new fellowships recognize the need to go beyond short-term academic exchanges and will support researcher and graduate students to cross disciplines and open up new theoretical and methodological perspectives.
