At the newly established DFG Research Training Group 1878 of the Universities of Cologne and Bonn on the topic of “Archaeology of Pre-Modern Economies”, 4 doctoral posts (TV-L 13, 50%) are to be filled with effect from 1.4.2014 within the following fields of study:
– Ethnology / Social Anthropology (Cologne)
– Byzantine studies (history, culture, archaeology) (Cologne)
– Christian Archaeology (Bonn)
– Historical Geography (Bonn)
The posts are limited to a 2-year period, with the option to extend by one year following a positive interim evaluation.
The aim of the RTG is to record economic systems and economic areas of premodern societies in terms of their structure, efficiency and dynamics (genesis, transformation processes through to a potential dissolution) as well as to analyse them in interaction with their respective physical geographical, political, societal, religious and cultural conditions. The investigations will be focussed along three lines of research, ‘Economic Networks’, ‘Settlement Centres and Their Environs’ and ‘Religious Institutions as Economic Units’. More detailed information can be found in the research programme.
These subjects are involved: Pre- and Early History, Egyptology, Classical Archaeology, Archaeology of the Roman Provinces, Christian Archaeology, Byzantine Studies, Ancient American Studies, Ancient History, Ethnology, Historical Geography. Applications are also possible from neighbouring disciplines, as long as support in Cologne/Bonn is assured.
Enquirers can either apply for the dissertation topics proposed here or develop their own project proposals within the framework of the outlined research programme.
The RTG language is German. Language lessons can be taken free of charge if required. The dissertation may also be written in another language.
Location and support The doctoral candidate (m/f) will be employed at either of the two universities and registered as a doctoral student. Generally he/she will be looked after by two fellow applicants. In Cologne the doctorate is awarded within the framework of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities. The respective location will be jointly discussed and decided. Willingness to move to the Cologne/Bonn region is expected.
The doctoral programme will be conducted within a structured study programme comprising weekly seminars, workshops or international meetings; participation is mandatory.
In addition to the posts, resources for material and travel costs as well as for holding conferences are available. Both universities offer comprehensive further training measures. Doctoral candidates with children can obtain additional support.
