Hi Tobias and Tommaso,

Maybe of interest to one of your students?  An ad just came out for a 3 year pre- (maybe post- too) doctoral position in Weimar on the media history of the life sciences. It seems to have a digital humanities component, too, so possibly good for folks interested in developing a database. It’s with Henning Schmidgen, who is sort of like the media studies version of Hans-Jörg Rheinberger (he also wrote a book on Latour that’s good). Looks like a great job, and probably can be combined with US doctoral study to get a double PhD, like I did. Perhaps you have a student who’d be interested!
