2011 Anneliese Maier Research Award for Outstanding Researchers from Abroad, Germany: Humanities and Social Science

Every year the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants up to five Anneliese Maier Research Awards funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research to outstanding researchers from abroad to promote research collaboration with specialist colleagues in Germany, contributing towards the further internationalisation of the humanities and social sciences in Germany.
The award amount is generally EUR 250,000 and is made available over a period of five years to finance research collaboration with specialist colleagues in Germany.
In addition to researchers who already number among the established leaders in their subject, the award is also aimed at researchers who are not yet so advanced in their scientific careers but who are already internationally established researchers from whom a sustainable shaping of the humanities and social sciences in Germany can be expected through the prospects of long-term collaboration. Particular importance is attached to the nomination of qualified female researchers.

Scholarship Application Deadline: by 31 May 2011

Wellcome Trust Doctoral Studentship (ETHOX), UK

The Ethox Centre has been awarded a major Wellcome Trust Enhancement Award to establish an international research network on the ethics of collaborative global health research. The network, which is a joint initiative of the Ethox Centre in Oxford and the Wellcome-KEMRI Unit in Kilifi, Kenya, will build ethics expertise and capacity both in the United Kingdom and in developing countries – with a particular emphasis on building capacity at the Wellcome Trust’s Major Overseas Programme sites.  The research activities of the network will focus on five themes: community engagement; global ethics governance; the ethics of research collaboration; the roles and responsibilities of research actors; and challenges in empirical ethics research. The award will fund DPhil studentships, the development of on-line resources, and a range of training activities. The network will also act as a focus for the encouragement of local research initiatives in developing country sites. The network’s Principal Investigator is Professor Michael Parker.
