Two Postdoctoral Fellowships (m/f/d) full-time job limited to 3 years Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU reference code: GIH-Postdocs 2023
The Graduate School "Global Intellectual History" invites applications for two postdoctoral fellowships
The Graduate School "Global Intellectual History," jointly run by Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, aims to explore intellectual engagement with processes of entanglement from the 16th to the 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. A particular (but not exclusive) focus is on the role of non-Western actors and knowledge production. For a detailed description of the research program, participating faculty and cooperating institutions, please visit http://www.gih.global-history.de
Successful candidates will pursue a research project in global intellectual history (16th to 20th century); they may also work on the transition of a manuscript into book, and they will be involved in the activities of the program.
Terms of employment:
The fellowship is offered as research position on a fixed-term basis, starting on April 1, 2023 (salary group TV-L 13, 100%, limited until March 31, 2026)
