As part of the enhanced cooperation on the history of knowledge between the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Technische Universität Berlin, and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, we are advertising several Postdoctoral Research Fellowships starting November 1, 2017, for durations of 14 to 24 months.
The successful candidates will contribute to the further development of the Berlin Center for the History of Knowledge—the network through which the partner institutions anchor the history of knowledge in teaching and research in Berlin—and to reflection on the foundations of the research field. Alongside their own research, they will therefore be expected to organize joint working groups, colloquia, or workshops. The successful candidates will be based at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science.
The selection process is organized jointly by the participating institutions. Please send a curriculum vitae, list of publications, outline of your research project within one of the two focus areas (max. 750 words), the names of three references, and copies of your qualifications. These documents must be submitted by September 10, 2017 (23:59 CET).
Please note that we can only accept applications submitted electronically through the application portal. We anticipate that references for shortlisted candidates will be requested between the end of September and early October.
