Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Philosophy, Science and the Sciences

Application

Announcement of fellowships funded by the RTG 1939

The Research Training Group Philosophy, Science and the Sciences (RTG 1939) will shortly offer several

  • salaried positions for doctoral candidates
  • stipends for pre-doctoral studies

to candidates working on a research project within the RTG 1939 on the dialogue between different forms and models of knowledge in ancient Greek, Roman and Arabic thought (including its medieval and early modern reception). Topics involve both philosophy and some special science or other (including mathematics, medicine, and other disciplines that we might not today consider special sciences, such as grammar or divination).

Salaried doctoral positions (T-VL Berlin E13 at 65%) will be funded for three years, starting on 1 October 2019.

Stipends for pre-doctoral studies have guaranteed funding for one year, starting on 1 October 2019. Pre-doc students making good progress toward the doctorate will receive a further three years of funding, leading to the completed doctorate.

Additional funding is available for conference travels, research stays abroad and other qualification measures, such as language training.

Applications: Please follow the instructions given in the section "How to apply".

Application deadline: 31 January 2019.

The reference number for applications at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is DR/006/19.
