CITAS supports the research and careers of early career scholars working in area studies. Postdocs and doctoral researchers are encouraged to participate actively in its events, while the Center also offers networking opportunities within Germany and internationally. This includes the Regensburg-Berkeley Doctoral Exchange Programme.
Since October 2020, Dr Joanna Moszczyńska has been working as a postdoctoral researcher.
CITAS work with early career scholars is conducted through its ag:itas working group and in collaboration with area studies research-oriented institutions in Regensburg, including the Leibniz ScienceCampus Europe and America.
Two CITAS research networks led by early career scholars have been launched using funding received as part of the strategic research goals established in 2019 with the Free State of Bavaria. The networks focus on Mediterranean Island Studies and Knowledge Infrastructures.
