Kind regards, Henning Engelke
The faculty of German Studies and Arts at Philipps-Universität Marburg, Department of Media Studies, PD Dr. Henning Engelke, invites applications for an externally funded
Research Assistant (PhD student).
The position is offered for a period of 3 years, assuming the candidate has not previously spent time for qualification elsewhere. The starting date is April 1st 2018. The position is part- time (65 % of regular working hours) with salary and benefits commensurate with a public service position in the state Hesse, Germany (TV-H E 13, 65 %).
The research project „Transdisciplinary Networks of Media Knowledge” (Heisenberg Project PD Dr. Henning Engelke) examines how research film, educational film and experimental cinema conceptually and aesthetically shaped scientific knowledge on perception communication and media from the 1950s to the 1970s.
The successful candidate will be expected to participate in research activities and the organisation of project-specific workshops.
The position is limited to a time period deemed adequate for the completion of a doctoral degree. As part of the assigned duties, there will be ample opportunity to conduct the independent scientific research necessary for the completion of a doctorate. The limitation complies to § 2, 1 WissZeitVG. Required qualifications include an MA (or equivalent qualification) in the fields of film or media studies, art history, visual anthropology or a related discipline and a research focus on non-fictional film. Willingness to engage in transdisciplinary research and excellent English skills are necessary. Applicants with a PhD project on networks of European research film, educational film and/or experimental cinema are particularly encouraged.
