The ten-month professorship is affiliated with the Jacques Delors Institute Berlin, Centre for European Affairs. The Delors Institute became operational in September 2018 and is one of five new Centres of Competence, which the Hertie School will set up in the coming years. It brings together Hertie School faculty members, Postdocs and doctoral students doing research on the politics, law, and political economy of European integration as well as a small dynamic think-tank on European governance. By having researchers and think tank analysts working under one roof without attempting to blur the differences between research and policy work, it aims to help us better understand the challenges and solutions to European governance. The Delors Institute is an integral part of the Hertie School of Governance and offers a vibrant and truly interdisciplinary and international research community.
The Michael Endres Visiting Professorship is intended to be filled every year and is named in honour of the former chairman of the Hertie Foundation which has been supporting the Hertie School since its creation in 2003. The holder of the visiting professorship is expected to be fully integrated into the Delors Institute. We are looking for a lawyer, political economist or political scientist (or someone from a related discipline such as political sociology or political theory) doing cutting-edge research on European integration, including its comparative dimension. We are interested in younger as well as more senior scholars doing interesting and stimulating research rather than in a constructed substantive fit with our research. The holder of the position should be present in Berlin most of the time.
