The Collaborative Research Center 1095 Discourses of Weakness and Resource Regimes at Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main is advertising a

Postdoctoral research fellowship (Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in) (E 13 on the University’s TV-G-U pay scale, full-time)

fixed-term until 31 December 2018.

The Collaborative Research Center 1095 Discourses of Weakness and Resource Regimes employs a transepochal and comparative approach to the question of how discourses of weakness had an impact on the handling of resources. These discourses can be observed in the history of all cultures at all times. Changes in handling tangible or intangible resources constitute a special and important aspect of historical transformation, which will be addressed in collaborative research by historians, historians of science, anthropologists, philosophers, legal historians and sinologists. Further information on the CRC programme is available on the German Research Foundation’s website, http://www.dfg.de/en/research_funding/programmes/coordinated_programmes/collaborative_rese....

The successful candidate will pursue a research project in the field of 19th and early 20th century British and/or French imperial history.

Requirements for appointment are a completed PhD in modern history, fluency in English and/or French (knowledge of German is helpful, but not essential), and willingness to participate actively in shaping and advancing the research centre’s collective agenda. Research experience in the field of imperial history is an advantage. Applications with the usual supporting documents (degree certificates, cv, list of publications) should be submitted by 18 February 2015 – preferably by e-mail – to Prof. Dr. Andreas Fahrmeir, Historisches Seminar, Goethe Universität, Norbert Wollheim Platz 1, 60629 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, fahrmeir@em.uni-frankfurt.de
