 Doctorat/ post-doc – Université de Bamberg

Position 1

The ERC Starting Grant Project “ACO” at the University of Bamberg is currently seeking a
Doctoral or Post-doctoral researcher (“linguistic position”)
(E 13 TV-L, 65% for doctoral, 100% for postdoctoral researchers)

The position is intended to be filled as soon as possible (though it can be postponed a few months to suit the schedule of particularly strong candidates) for 3 years (doctoral researchers) or 18 months (postdocs).

Job description:
As part of an ERC-funded project on late antique Conciliar Acts, you will independently study linguistic phenomena present in these texts. Your research will focus on two main questions: first, you will track down traces of orality in these purported verbatim transcripts; second, you will study translation and re-translation processes between Latin and Greek (e.g., the Roman representatives at the Councils spoke in Latin; their statements are preserved in Greek, and these translations seem over-literal; one can witness this effect the other way around, in case Acts are preserved only in Latin; in case of Latin texts, it is sometimes difficult to determine whether we have the original or a re-translation). So far, almost nothing has been done in pursuit of these questions (though do check the introduction to Richard Price’s translation of Constantinople II). To be up to this task, you need an excellent command of both Greek and Latin, an interest in linguistic questions, and real enthusiasm to explore uncharted waters.

This position can be filled either by a doctoral researcher (for three years) or by a postdoc (for 18 months). Doctoral researchers may hand in their research as a Dr. phil. dissertation at the University of Bamberg, though this is not required.

Your profile:
• Excellent master’s or doctoral degree in Linguistics (with a focus on Greek or Latin) or in any field of Classics, such as Greek Philology, Ancient History or Patristics
• Proficiency in Ancient Greek and Latin, good to excellent knowledge of the modern languages generally used in Classics (English, German, French, and Italian)
• Willingness and ability for independently opening up a new field of research
• High level of work discipline

General Information:
The Faculty is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from female candidates. Among candidates otherwise equally qualified, preference will be given to candidates with disabilities.
The University of Bamberg has been certified by the Hertie Foundation as a family-friendly university and is committed to providing measures to help reconcile professional and family life.

Application:
Please send your application via e-mail as one combined PDF document to peter.riedlberger@uni-bamberg.de. Use English, German, French, and Italian for authoring your application.
Your application must include:
• a brief cover letter addressing your qualifications, your intended starting date and any other relevant item
• a CV
• graded university transcripts and certificates; in case of the applicants without a doctorate, also include your graduation certificate from secondary school (“Abiturzeugnis” for Germans)
• your commentary on a short passage excerpted from the Acts; please focus on linguistic questions, and do not write more than one page (even half a page should be sufficient); you can download text to comment upon from www.riedlberger.de/linguistic
Your application may include:
• anything that may prove your proficiency in Ancient Greek and Latin, such as additional diplomas, awards, publications etc.
• anything that may prove your excellence in scholarly work, such as publications, reviews of your publications etc.

You do not need to include any letters of recommendation.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at peter.riedlberger@uni-bamberg.de. I have put together some further information which might be of interest to prospective candidates; you can find the document at www.riedlberger.de/inf-applicants

Review of applications will begin on July 15, 2016. The position will remain open until filled.

Position 2

The ERC Starting Grant Project “ACO” at the University of Bamberg is currently seeking a
Doctoral or Post-doctoral researcher (“536 position”)
(E 13 TV-L, 65% for doctoral, 100% for postdoctoral researchers)

The position is intended to be filled as soon as possible (though it can be postponed a few months to suit the schedule of particularly strong candidates) for 3 years (doctoral researchers) or 18 months (postdocs).

Job description:
As part of an ERC-funded project on late antique Conciliar Acts, you will independently create the first translation of the Acts of the Synods of Constantinople and Jerusalem (A.D. 536). The Greek original is readily available, even at Archive.org (“Collectio Sabbaitica ACO III”). It will be your task to provide a faithful, annotated translation into either English, German, French, or Italian. Up to now, exceedingly little research has been done on ACO III (to get an impression, start off with Fergus Millar’s article in JRS 98, 2008, pp. 62-82). Accordingly, your work will be cutting-edge research.

This position can be filled either by a doctoral researcher (for three years) or by a postdoc (for 18 months). Doctoral researchers may hand in their research as a Dr. phil. dissertation at the University of Bamberg, though this is not required.

Your profile:
• Excellent master’s or doctoral degree in any field of Classics, such as Greek Philology, Ancient History or Patristics
• Proficiency in Ancient Greek, good to excellent knowledge of the other languages generally used in Classics (Latin, English, German, French, and Italian)
• Willingness and ability for independently opening up a new field of research
• High level of work discipline

Bourses post-doctorales – Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices

Call for Applications

The Berlin-based FORUM TRANSREGIONALE STUDIEN invites scholars to apply for up to ten postdoctoral fellowships within the framework of the research program Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices. Kunstgeschichte und ästhetische Praktiken for the academic year 2016/2017.

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 scholars from all continents and 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 those of the Americas to join the program, but also addresses neighboring disciplines such as Archaeology and other fields dealing with the history of visual 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 and forms of collaborative research. 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 collaborates with the museums of Berlin, 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.

For more detailed information about the program please visit www.arthistories.de

Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices is an initiative of the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence (KHI), Max-Planck-Institute  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 continents and regions, with various disciplinary backgrounds, such as Art Histories, Archaeologies and all relevant neighboring fields dealing with artifacts, artistic production, 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 2016 and ends on 31 July 2017. In particular cases, shorter fellowship terms may be considered. Postdoctoral fellows will receive a monthly stipend of € 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.

Institutional Framework

Art Histories and Aesthetic Practices is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The research program is integrated in the Berlin-based FORUM TRANSREGIONALE STUDIEN, a research platform that connects systematic and region-specific questions, addressing entanglements and interactions beyond national, cultural or regional frames. The FORUM works in tandem with established institutions and networks that are engaged in transregional studies and is supported by an association of directors of universities, research institutes and networks mostly based in Berlin. It supports three research programs: ZUKUNFTSPHILOLOGIE: Revisiting the Canons of Textual Scholarship, and EUROPE IN THE MIDDLE EAST—THE MIDDLE EAST IN EUROPE (EUME). The FORUM TRANSREGIONALE STUDIEN cooperates with the Max Weber Stiftung and is funded by a public-private partnership.
