PhD-ösztöndíjak Tübingenben

Two doctoral fellowships (international) or one doctoral position (German citizens) are available at the University of Tübingen from October 2014 in a research team examining state formation in the Iron Age Near East through excavation and survey in and around Zincirli, Turkey. The junior research group "Forging the Political Landscape in Iron Age Turkey" will investigate how ecological resources, mobile and sedentary social groups, and urban settlement were deployed in the construction of a new territorial state in the 10th-8th centuries BC. Projects posed in the perspective of landscape archaeology or household archaeology are particularly welcome. Doctoral students will be co-supervised by Dr. Virginia Herrmann and Prof. Dr. Peter Pfälzner.

The research team will be associated with the new Collaborative Research Center (CRC 1070) "Resource Cultures: Socio-cultural Dynamics in the Use of Resources" at the University of Tübingen. As a member of the Excellence Initiative, the University of Tübingen is among Germany's top research universities, hosting five institutes of archaeology and archaeological science.

The position is available for a period of three years. International students will receive a stipend of 1200€/month. German citizens will receive 50% of TV-L 13. Funds for start-up IT equipment, travel and research expenses are also available.

Applicants should hold a Master's degree in archaeology with expertise in the ancient Near East or eastern Mediterranean. Some training in the methodologies of landscape archaeology or household archaeology, a background in sociocultural anthropology, fieldwork experience, and relevant language skills are preferred. Good knowledge of English and willingness to learn German in the first year of the PhD are required.

Applicants should submit a research proposal (max. 3 pages) outlining their research ideas on the themes of the current project, CV, and two letters of recommendation. All documents should be submitted electronically to Dr. Herrmann (virginia.herrmann at uni-tuebingen.de) by 31st August 2014. Informal inquiries are welcome.

The University of Tübingen strives to raise the number of women employed in research in teaching: we explicitly encourage suitably qualified female applicants. Applications from disabled candidates with equal qualifications will be treated with special consideration.
