IIHS Post Doctoral Programme

IIHS is seeking Post-Doctoral Fellows to join its vibrant intellectual environment within the Academics and Research programme at IIHS.

 

While Fellows are hired institutionally at IIHS, each is hired into a specific and on-going research-based project. These projects are the Fellow’s first home within the institution. They are thus expected to account for up to half of the Fellow’s time, though this can vary for different projects. The remaining time is equally split between the Fellow’s own research and writing as well as their participation in IIHS institutional roles. These roles include: teaching in on-going academic or capacity building programmes, participating in the internal conference and seminar series, and supporting institutional processes.

 

IIHS has created an internationally-recognised programme that allows Post-Doctoral Fellows to grow and be mentored for their future careers. All Fellows are thus paired with specific mentors within IIHS (within or outside their core research project). A Fellow’s mentorship and progress is tracked through quarterly performance reviews that help Fellows attain their individual and institutional goals during their time at IIHS.

 

A select set of Fellows have been drawn into the IIHS faculty over the last few years. Others have gone on to take up positions in leading international universities.

 

Post-Doctoral fellowships typically have one or two-year terms, and some may be extendable.

The Post-Doctoral Fellowships 2017-18

The IIHS Post-Doctoral Programme: GCRF PEAK

IIHS seeks Post-Doctoral Fellows to join its vibrant intellectual environment within the Academics and Research programme. IIHS is increasingly recognized in India and internationally as a significant node in urban research and practice on the global South. Its promotion of inter-disciplinary pedagogy, on-the-ground learning, an excellent library on various aspects of the urban, and a convivial place for research make it an ideal location for scholarship.

 

Post-Doctoral fellowships at IIHS typically have one or two-year terms, and some may be extendable. While Fellows are hired institutionally at IIHS, each is hired into a specific and on-going research-based project, which will be the Fellow’s first home within IIHS. This call is associated with the PEAK consortium, funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), UK.

 

Led by the University of Oxford, and in partnership with IIHS, Peking University and the University of Cape Town, the PEAK consortium has identified four overarching themes of urban dynamics. Researchers will work across natural sciences (including mathematics, medicine, transport and engineering), the social sciences (including anthropology, development, migration) and humanities (including law, history). The PEAK framework synthesises traditional urban studies disciplines with emergent new urban sciences in a programme of research and capacity building across the humanities, social, sciences and natural sciences. PEAK is grounded in the logic of urban complexity to develop an array of disciplinary perspectives that will address the challenges of the 21st century city. More details on the PEAK consortium are available here: http://gtr.rcuk.ac.uk/projects?ref=ES/P011055/1

 

Project-related research will account for up to half of the Fellow’s time, though this can vary for different projects. The remaining time is equally split between the Fellow’s own research and writing as well as their participation in IIHS institutional roles. These roles include: teaching in on-going academic or capacity building programmes, participating in the internal conference and seminar series, and supporting institutional processes.

 

The focus of the PEAK project is particularly on developing a new cohort of interdisciplinary urban researchers, and therefore offers multiple opportunities for young scholars to develop research, teaching, and writing skills. Opportunities exist for individual scholarship, collaborative work with scholars at partner institutions including the University of Oxford, and the University of Cape Town, as well as potential travel to partner institutions through summer schools and internships.

STIP: Postdoctoral Fellowships “Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices”, Berlin

Berlin, Germany, October 1, 2018 – July 31, 2019
Application deadline: Jan 15, 2018

The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien invites scholars to
apply for up to six postdoctoral fellowships within the framework of
the research program “Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices.
Kunstgeschichte und Ästhetische Praktiken” for the academic year
2018/19.

“Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices” is a research and fellowship
program which questions and transcends traditional disciplinary
boundaries of art history in a transcultural, global horizon. By
creating a space of dialogue for university and museum scholars from
all regions, it aims to discuss the potentials and contours of a
plural history of art. It especially invites scholars from Islamic,
Asian, African, Australian, European art histories and the art
histories of the Americas, to join the program, but also addresses
neighboring disciplines such as Archaeology, Anthropology, History,
Aesthetics and other fields dealing with the history of visual and
material cultures.

“Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices” analyses the connectivity of
larger historical spaces in a transregional perspective and
investigates artistic and aesthetic practices and the history of
artifacts in a comparative approach, experimenting with new
methodologies, forms of collaborative research and curatorial
practices. The concept of Aesthetic Practices introduced by this
program, is an invitation to study artifacts with their biographies as
well as processes of transfer and transformation in a transcultural,
postcolonial and global perspective. The program has no chronological
or geographical constraints. It collaborate with the Berlin State
Museums, the Berlin universities, as well as other international and
national academic partners, and aims at an intense interaction of art
historical institutions.

Its scholarly environment is designed to enable and encourage both
fellows and the wider community to experiment and refine transregional
approaches to the history of visual cultures and aesthetic practices.

“Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices” is an initiative of the
Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut (KHI) at
the Forum Transregionale Studien, Berlin. Art Histories is directed by
Hannah Baader and Gerhard Wolf and cooperates with the program
Connecting Art Histories in the Museum (Berlin State Museums/ KHI
Florenz).

Candidates

Applicants should have obtained their doctorate within the last seven
years (before their application). We welcome applications from all
regions, with various disciplinary backgrounds, such as Art Histories,
Archaeologies, Anthropology, Aesthetics, History, and all relevant
neighboring fields dealing with artifacts, artistic production,
material culture, and aesthetic practices relating to objects, images
and architectures. Applicants should be interested to engage in
reflexive and transdisciplinary research. Art Histories fellows are
given the opportunity to pursue their individual research projects
within a transdisciplinary and transregional context. They are
expected to engage in the program activities, such as regular
seminars, workshops, conferences and a travelling seminar.

In the overall context of the “Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices”
program and the framework of the Forum Transregionale Studien, the
fellows will be part of a creative, intellectually stimulating and
discursive environment.

Fellowships

The fellowhip starts on 1 October 2018 and ends on 31 July 2019. In
particular cases, shorter fellowship terms may be considered.
Postdoctoral fellows will receive a monthly stipend of EUR 2.500 plus
supplements depending on their personal situation.

Organizational support regarding visas, insurances, housing, etc. will
be provided. Successful applicants become fellows of the program “Art
Histories and Aesthetic Practices” at the Forum Transregionale Studien
and are expected to take up residence in Berlin.

Application Procedure

To apply, please send the following documents exclusively by e-mail as
seperate word or PDF files:

– a curriculum vitae (in English)
– a project description (no longer than five pages / in English)
– a sample of scholarly work (about 20 pages of an article, conference
paper, or dissertation chapter)

JOB: Postdoc History of Architectural Criticism, Rennes

Rennes 2 University, March 01, 2018
Application deadline: Jan 14, 2018

Post Doctoral Fellow (Full Time, 18 months) in Architectural History:
History of Architectural Criticism

Project Title: Architectural Criticism, an intellectual and material cartography
Research Fields: Architectural History, Architectural Criticism
Research Laboratory: Research Team Histoire et Critique des Arts (EA 1279)
UBL Research Department: Arts Culture Création Patrimoine ACCP
Head(s) of the Scientific Project: Hélène Jannière
helene.janniere@univ-rennes2.fr

Application deadline: January 14th, 2018
Job Starting Date: From March 1st, 2018

Environment:

Research Team EA 1279 Histoire et critique des arts includes 21
Associate Professors and Professors and 35 PhD candidates. It
activities follow four research axes:
1. Criticism and its objects: notions, boundaries, corpuses
2. Objects, sites and architectures: conceptions and cultural heritage
3. Political history of arts
4. Interactions: philosophy of art, music, text, image
During the five-year period 2017-2021, Axis 1 («Criticism and its
objects: notions, boundaries, corpuses») conducts research projects on
the practices, theories and history of criticism, focusing on the
cultural and disciplinary transfers, on the interactions between
different forms of criticism (art criticism, music criticism,
architecture criticism, etc.), as well as the approach of social
sciences to the notion of criticism. Since 1989, the structural
collaboration with the Archives de la critique d’art contributes to
make EA 1279 Histoire et critique des arts a leading research centre
in the field of the history of art criticism.

Scientific Project:

Within the frame of this scientific project, the unity EA 1279
Histoire et critique des arts, in partnership with the Archives de la
critique d’art, has recently contributed to structure a field of
research, the project Mapping Architectural Criticism (funded by the
ANR, 2015-2017), and it has formed an international network of
researchers http://mac.hypotheses.org on the history of criticism.
Based at Rennes 2, it gathers researchers from Italy (Università di
Bologna, Politecnico di Milano), China (Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool
University), Great Britain (AA School of Architecture), Croatia
(University of Zagreb), Portugal (New University of Lisbon) and Spain
(Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya).

Differentiating itself from both the history of architecture theories
and the history of architecture publication, the project Mapping
Architectural Criticism attempts to understand architecture criticism
as an ensemble of practices, texts, actors, cultural transfers,
networks, in the perspective of a cultural history. While it addresses
the transfers towards architecture from other disciplines in the field
of human and social sciences, it also investigates the relation of
criticism with the public debate, the processes of heritage
recognition, and other types of architecture writing.

In connection with this epistemological question and historical
surveys, Mapping Architectural Criticism aims at producing tools and
documentary resources. Therefore, Mapping Architectural Criticism
relates to a two-fold scientific goal, which the postdoctoral
researcher is required to comply with: an “intellectual cartography”
and a “material cartography” of architecture criticism.

Postdoctoral Project:

The postdoctoral project will be part of the ongoing research
orientations of the network Mapping Architectural Criticism. The
candidate’s scientific project, covering a period which can range from
the beginning of the 19th century to the 21st century, will comprise
an international dimension and relate to the study of notional
transfers, international circulations and cultural transfers,
following a multi-disciplinary approach. This may include different
study areas: Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, according to
the candidate’s own research experience.

In addition to carrying on an individual research project, a strong
involvement in the collective activities and research projects is
required:
– 1. The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the
epistemological questioning on the history of architecture criticism,
initiated by the Mapping Architectural Criticism network, starting
from his/her own research fields, to the study of its actors, notions,
vectors, etc.
– 2. The contribution to the constitution of an online portal of
scientific information and storage of data on the history of
criticism, namely in relation with specialists of Digital Humanities.
– 3. He/she will organise one or more international meetings (study
days, symposiums).
– 4. He/she is expected to participate actively in the organisation
and coordination of the activities of the Mapping Architectural
Criticism network (organisation of meetings, publication).

Required Profile:

PhD Degree in Architectural History, Art History or Architecture (on a
relevant subject) maximum 3 years of experience after dissertation
defence . An international experience in research is required (during
or after Doctorate). Candidates must not have discussed the PhD
dissertation in the hiring institution (Rennes 2 University) and not
previously worked in the host research unit (EA 1279).

An architectural historian specialized in the history of architectural
discourses, criticism and architectural theories. The candidate must
have a clear affinity with the theme of this research project, clearly
demonstrated by his/her publications and/or conference papers.
Knowledge of French, good knowledge of English, both oral and written,
are required. The ability to work independently but at the same time
to be a strong team player. Sense of organization.

How to apply?

Applications in English or French should be sent by January 10, 2018

3 Postdoctoral research positions

The Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology is a leading centre for research in social anthropology. Common to all research projects at the Max Planck Institute is the comparative analysis of social change; it is primarily in this domain that its researchers contribute to theory building, although there is also an applied dimension to much of our work, as well as legal and political topicality.

The Law & Anthropology Department invites applications for

3 Postdoctoral research positions

Background

One of the aims of the Law & Anthropology Department is to offer a stimulating interdisciplinary forum where both anthropologists and lawyers can engage with one another and conduct cutting-edge, policy-relevant research linked to the intensification of exchanges and encounters among and between societies, communities, and cultures in today’s world. Of particular interest for this call are projects that that engage in empirically informed research in an effort to find legislative, administrative, judicial, or practical solutions to issues of accommodating diversity (cultural, religious, ethnic, etc.) under state law. Appointees will contribute to the development of the Department’s research agenda, not only by gaining insights into how solutions in concrete cases could – or could not – be achieved, but also to critically assess the various normative frameworks within which accommodation takes place. Appointees are expected to engage with the methodological and epistemological challenges that accompany the effort to combine law and anthropology.

Both lawyers and anthropologists who are actively involved in the study of the accommodation of diversity are welcome to apply. Preference will be given to research proposals that address the European context.

Prerequisites

1) an excellent PhD (or other doctoral degree) in law, social / cultural anthropology, or other relevant discipline in the human sciences;
2) clear evidence of familiarity with the topic addressed in the research proposal;
3) an interest in empirical field research (this can include relevant legal practice);
4) a solid publication record with articles in peer-reviewed journals;
5) excellent command of written and spoken English and evidence of other relevant language skills (depending on the topic and the regional focus).

Successful applicants are expected to collaborate with the other colleagues in the Department, contribute to teamwork and a collegial atmosphere, and generally strive to ensure cross-fertilization within the Department. This includes the expectation that they provide informal supervision to doctoral students. For those wishing to gain teaching experience, opportunities exist at the Martin Luther University in Halle. The Department is currently developing a new project that seeks to gather information on judicial cases related to religious and cultural diversity from different European countries and organize it in the form of a database. Postdoctoral researchers will be expected to contribute data from their own fields to help build up this major research instrument.

Positions are to start on 1 October 2018. Employment will be on a full-time contractual basis. Remuneration will be awarded in accordance with Germany’s Collective Wage Agreement for the Civil Service (TVöD). The positions are awarded for three years, and are open to an extension, subject to a positive evaluation, for those envisaging a (German) ‘Habilitation’ degree.

The workplace is Halle/Saale (Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany).

The Max Planck Society is committed to raising the proportion of women in science; we thus explicitly encourage applications from female researchers. Individuals with disabilities will be given priority, assuming equal qualifications.

Application procedure

Applicants are asked to submit the following materials:
– cover letter
– curriculum vitae, including full list of publications
– writing sample (chapter or article length)
– 1-2 page summary of the doctoral thesis
– a detailed project proposal (max. 5 pages) providing evidence that the project can be completed within the scheduled three years and information on how the research will be disseminated (publications envisaged, etc.).
– photocopies of university degrees
– 3 letters of recommendation (to be sent directly to: marencakova@eth.mpg.de).

Please submit your application materials electronically by 31 January 2018 by following the link for vacancies on our homepage (under ‘Career’), or by going directly to the online application form using the link below.

Interviews with shortlisted applicants will be held in spring 2018.

5 Positions for Doctoral Students

The Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology is a leading centre for research in social anthropology. Common to all research projects at the Max Planck Institute is the comparative analysis of social change; it is primarily in this domain that its researchers contribute to theory building, although there is also an applied dimension to much of our work, as well as legal and political topicality.

5 Positions for Doctoral Students

Background

One of the aims of the Law & Anthropology Department is to offer a stimulating interdisciplinary forum where both lawyers and anthropologists can engage with one another and conduct cutting-edge, policy-relevant research linked to the intensification of exchanges and encounters among and between societies, communities, and cultures in today’s world. This calls for an in-depth assessment of the ways in which different normative orders and systems of morality coexist at various levels of decision-making.

This call invites research proposals that address the European context. The object is to allow a small group of doctoral students to assess, both from a legal and from an empirical point of view, some of the challenges that come with requests – both before public authorities (including the judiciary) and in private relationships – to accommodate, directly or indirectly, the increasing social, cultural, and demographic diversity in Europe today.

Within the framework of this call, three scenarios/challenges in particular are under scrutiny: (1) situations in which fundamental rights and liberties are in conflict with one another; (2) situations or practices that are not recognized or are explicitly denied validity under state law; (3) situations that are addressed very differently in the several domestic legal orders of European countries. Research proposals will focus on at least one of the three abovementioned scenarios/challenges, and applicants should make clear to what extent their project engages with both law and anthropology.

Prerequisites:

1) an academic degree (master’s or equivalent) in law or social / cultural anthropology in hand at the time of taking up the position (1 October 2018), with outstanding results;
2) evidence of serious interest in law & anthropology;
3) willingness to conduct empirical field research (this may require familiarity with relevant legal practice);
4) very good command of written and spoken English;
5) evidence of proficiency in other relevant languages.

Applicants are expected to work in interdisciplinary collaboration with the other colleagues in the Department, and should therefore have an intrinsic interest in interdisciplinary as well as team work.

Positions are to start on 1 October 2018. They are awarded for three years, with the possibility of two six-month extensions (pending a positive evaluation). Employment will be on a full-time contractual basis. The workplace is Halle/Saale (Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany).

Please note that the Max Planck Institutes do not award doctoral degrees. Doctoral students must therefore enrol at a university in or outside Germany. The choice of university will be agreed jointly by the successful applicant and the director of the Department of Law & Anthropology (for practical reasons, most PhD students enrol at the Martin Luther University in Halle, but that is not a requirement).

The Max Planck Society is committed to raising the proportion of women in science; we thus explicitly encourage applications from female researchers. Individuals with disabilities will be given priority, assuming equal qualifications.

Application procedure

Applicants are asked to submit the following materials:
– cover letter;
– curriculum vitae, including a formal record of university courses and degree credentials and list of publications (if any);
– a succinct description (3 to 5 pages) of the doctoral project the applicant intends to pursue;
– two letters of recommendation from professors, teachers, or professional supervisors who are well acquainted with the work of the applicant (letters to be sent directly to the Department at marencakova@eth.mpg.de).

Please submit your application materials electronically by 31 January 2018 by following the link for vacancies on our homepage (under ‘Career’), or by going directly to the online application form using the link below.

Interviews with shortlisted applicants will be held in spring 2018.
