        Subject: MPIWG Berlin: Two Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin (the Max Planck Research Group Art and Knowledge in Pre-Modern Europe; Director: Prof. Dr. Sven Dupré) announces
two postdoctoral fellowships for up to two years
starting date between July 1 and October 1, 2014. Outstanding scholars are invited to apply.
Candidates should hold a doctorate in the history of science and technology or a related field (art history, conservation science, technical art history, history of medicine) at the time of application and show evidence of scholarly promise in the form of publications and other achievements. Tenure of a prior postdoctoral fellowship will be to the candidate’s advantage.
Particularly welcome are research projects on ‘Early Modern Art Technologies and Materials’:
see http://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/en/research/projects/FGDupre_Art_Technology.
However, research projects addressing the full scope of Max Planck Research Group dealing with the history of knowledge and art up to the eighteenth century (with a preference for the period between 1350 and 1750) will be considered. Research projects may concern any geographical area within Europe, and any of the visual and decorative arts. For short descriptions of the project, see http://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/en/research/projects/MRGdupre.
Postdoctoral fellows are expected to take part in the scientific life of the Institute, to advance their own research project, and to actively contribute to the project of the Max Planck Research Group Art and Knowledge in Pre-Modern Europe.
The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science is an international and interdisciplinary research institute (http://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/en/index.html). The colloquium language is English; it is expected that candidates will be able to present their own work and discuss that of others fluently in that language. Fellowships are endowed with a monthly stipend between 2.100 € and 2.500 € (fellows from abroad) or between 1.468 € and 1.621 € (fellows from Germany, who may alternatively opt for a contract TVöD E13 in the German system).
Candidates of all nationalities are encouraged to apply; applications from women are especially welcome. The Max Planck Society is committed to promoting handicapped individuals and encourages them to apply.
Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Candidates are requested to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae including publication list, research prospectus (maximum 750 words), and at least one sample of writing (i.e. article or book chapter) to:
