The Research Training Group invites applications for 6 PhD Student Positions (65%, German TV-L scale 13) starting April 1, 2018 for up three years (on the condition of a positive evaluation after 1,5 years). Remuneration is based on the E 13 salary bracket of the German Public Service Salary Scheme (TV-L). Additional funding for travel is also available.
Applications (in English or German) are invited from highly-qualified graduate students. Applicants should have a university degree equivalent to Master level in literature, with a G.P.A. above the average. In exceptional cases, admission is possible on the basis of a B.A. (honours). The research projects should contribute to the thematic focus of the Research Training Group. Therefore, the outline of the research project should make an explicit connection to the research profile of the group. Projects that include the exploration of earlier historical periods are particularly welcome.
