Dr. Martin Delhey
Martin Delhey studied the languages and culture of classical India, together with Tibetan and Chinese, at the University of Hamburg, where he received an M.A. (in 1998) and D.Phil (in 2002) for his research on the Yogācārabhūmi, the basic text of the Yogācāra school of Buddhism.
From 2002 to 2005 Dr. Delhey held a teaching position („Wissenschaftlicher Assistent“) at the
Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, followed by two stays as a research fellow at Japanese Universities and by two full-time research positions (funded by the DFG) at the University of Hamburg devoted to the history of Buddhist ethics (in particular, suicide) and the early history of Tantric Buddhism, respectively. Since 2011, his main affiliation is to the inter-disciplinary Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures (CSMC), University of Hamburg.
