Private Life under National Socialism
The Institute for Contemporary History Munich-Berlin (IfZ) is undertaking in cooperation with the University of Nottingham and the German Historical Institute Warsaw a major research project with the title ‘Private Life under National Socialism’.
In order to carry out this research, the Institute of Contemporary History seeks to appoint to the following positions, to be taken up as soon as possible:
Two post-doctoral positions (TV-L- E13)
Two PhD positions (65% TV-L DE13)
These positions are fixed-term for three years and are all located in Munich. PhD candidates will be expected to join the doctoral training programme (ProMo Hist) run by the Historisches Seminar at the Ludwig-Maximilian-University Munich. A binational PhD degree award may be possible.
For further information on the project see the website http://www.ifz-muenchen.de/das_private_im_ns.html.
Applicants for the PhD positions must have a first-class or high upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in history. It is expected that applicants will have a relevant Masters degree with merit or distinction or be able to show evidence that they will achieve this before April 2013.
Applicants for the post-doctoral positions will be expected to have completed an excellent doctoral dissertation and have been awarded their PhD.
For all positions, fluency in German and in English and a capacity to work in a team are essential.
Applications should include a CV, copies of degree certificates, a list of publications (if applicable) and a 1-page letter in German outlining the reasons for the applicant’s interest in the project. In the case of applicants to the PhD scholarships, a confidential reference/letter of recommendation submitted in a sealed envelope from a university tutor/professor is required.
Applications should be sent to the Direktor des Instituts für Zeitgeschichte, Prof. Dr. Andreas Wirsching, Leonrodstr. 46b, 80636 München, Germany.
Closing date for applications: 15 March 2013.
In cooperation with the Institute of Contemporary History, the University of Nottingham is simultaneously advertising a three-year PhD studentship linked to the project. The studentship will cover full-time fees and a stipend at European Union rates and will start on 1 October 2013. For further details see the University of Nottingham website http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/history/future-students/postgraduate/fees-and-funding/studentships.aspx.
