12 PhD & 1 Postdoc positions, Graduate School Global Intellectual History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Position:||Doctoral Fellow, Post-Doctoral Fellow|
The Graduate School Global Intellectual History invites applications for twelve PhD fellowships and one postdoctoral fellowship.
The graduate school aims to explore intellectual reactions to processes of entanglement from the 18th to 20th century in their social, cultural and political contexts: the trans-border spread of ideas, claims to universal validity, as well as counter-movements and resistance to such claims.
The graduate school is funded by the German Research Council (DFG) and jointly run by Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität Berlin. It builds on a strong research tradition in area studies and global history at both universities, including the jointly-run MA program in Global History. It offers a stimulating research environment, substantial financial support for archival stays and a strong network of international partners in the form of the Global History Cooperative.
Successful candidates will develop a PhD dissertation/postdoc project in the field of global intellectual history (18th to 20th century) and contribute to the activities of the program in the form of seminars, workshops and/or summer schools.
Fellowships are offered as research positions on a fixed-term basis for three years starting on April 1, 2017. Salary is in accordance with TV-L FU level E13.
Review of applications will begin on September 16th. Notifications will be sent in mid-October. Successful applicants will be invited to an interview, to take place in Berlin or via Skype in mid- to late November.
