Emerging Research Fields
Emerging Research Fields and Contact Details
Join the global fight against chronic kidney disease at the Hamburg Center for Kidney Health, an international hub in nephrology research. With a team of over 150 experts, we're pioneering molecular insights to improve classification, diagnosis, and treatment of kidney disease. We're seeking postdoctoral fellows with expertise in molecular biology, imaging, or gene therapy to advance our mission.
The Hamburg Center for Health Economics (HCHE) is an interdisciplinary research center of the faculties of Business Administration, Economics and Social Sciences and Medicine. The center is now one of the largest and high-performing centers in Europe. Particular strengths of the center are its strong international network, the integration of economics and medicine and the successful transfer of research into policy and practice. Since 2011 the center has acquired €30 million in research funding.

The Early Modern World:
Researchers with distinctive expertise in the early modern period at Universität Hamburg research and teach in all of the historical sub-disciplines. This expertise is bundled in the emerging field Early Modern World. Research in the emerging field takes an interdisciplinary approach to religious processes taking place from the 15th to the 18th centuries and their manifestations across all contemporary media.
Law in Global Contexts:
The faculty covers the full spectrum of legal disciplines, with emphasis on the dogma of the core subjects (private law, public law, and criminal law), including procedural law. There are also cross-disciplinary research areas: (1) fundamentals of law (Law in Context) and (2) international dimensions (International, European, Transnational Law). This fits with the emerging fields of Law in Global Contexts. Digitalization and its consequences for law is a cross-cutting issue.
Grounds, Norms, Decisions:
Grounds, Norms, Decisions investigates different kinds of relations between grounds and consequences. We study causation, metaphysical explanation, and epistemic reasons as well as reasons for action, individual and collective decision-making processes, the outcome of these processes, and their normative assessment. In addition to basic research on central concepts, we also work on an important area of application: the descriptive and normative analysis of decision-making problems relevant to society.
