Call for Applications

Central aims of the future development concept International Network University, which won a funding award in the Excellence Initiative in 2007 and again in 2012, are supporting junior scholars and increasing the cooperation with non-university partner institutions. To meet these goals, Freie Universität Berlin intends to implement several Junior Research Groups that will be managed by junior professors.

To enhance their cooperation, Freie Universität Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) jointly invite applications for a Junior Professorship in Global History of Knowledge (W 1) at the Department of History and Cultural Studies / Friedrich Meinecke Institute (FMI).

The successful applicant will be required to conduct research and teach in the area named above and to manage a Junior Research Group.

Appointment requirements are governed by article 102a of the Berlin Higher Education Act (Berliner Hochschulgesetz).

Candidates should be familiar with current methods and discussions in international history studies and have research experience in the field of transnational and global history of knowledge. A non-European research focus with respective language skills is desirable but not mandatory. The appointee will have an outstanding track record of university teaching and research with a strong international component. Candidates should have experience with sponsored research and excellent English skills. 

The successful candidate is expected to manage a Junior Research Group on the topic of Global History of Knowledge, preferably focusing on the history of energy systems and
resource systems. She or he will participate and teach the regular degree programs at the Friedrich Meinecke Institute  (BA, MA, MA Global History) as well as cooperate with
colleagues in interdisciplinary joint research projects of Freie Universität Berlin and the MPIWG. Candidates will be required to assume responsibilities within the university’s
institutions of academic self-governance.
