Summary

Announcement

Presentation

The International Junior Research Group bases its approach on the idea that our concept of the “object” formed only recently: it was not until “Modernity” that its features came to be defined as material, spatially confined, and closely connected to a purpose.

The group’s intention is to engage in reconstructing pre-modern conceptions of objecthood and experiences with objects. Key approaches and research fields are the relationship of objects, images and texts.

The positions are intended for excellent young scholars to pursue their research project as well as to contribute to the scientific and organizational activities of the research group. The possibility for teaching will also be available.

PhD Candidates: The advisor of the PhD is normally the leader of the Research Group (in Art History). Possible research fields are the ornamenting of objects through images or the representation of objects in various contexts. Other projects on the history of objects are also welcome.

Post-Doc: An interdisciplinary research project is required.

Requirements

  • An MA degree / a PhD degree of high standing
  • The possible working languages are German, English, French and Italian. English should be mastered at a proficient academic level; basic knowledge of German and the desire to improve will be necessary; one additional language will also be required
  • Strong interest in interdisciplinary research and teaching

Furthermore for the position as Post-Doc:

  • Publications on pertinent topics
  • Familiarity with international collaboration

PhD Candidates: The positions are limited to a period of 2 years with the option of an extension for a further year.

Post-Doc: The position is limited to a period of 1 year with the option of an extension for a further year.

Your workplace is situated in the center of Munich and can be reached very easily with public transportation. We offer an interesting and challenging position with the possibility of further training and development.

As a general rule, part-time employment is possible.

Applications from appropriately qualified handicapped persons will be given priority.
