IKKM Weimar Postdoctoral Fellowship "Operative Ontologies"

"Turning back/(Self-)reflecting"

The Internationales Kolleg für Kulturtechnikforschung und Medienphilosophie (International Research Institute for Cultural Techniques and Media Philosophy) invites scholars from the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Arts to apply for a non-teaching Postdoctoral Fellowship (2-6 months, starting from 1st October 2019).

The Internationales Kolleg für Kulturtechnikforschung und Medienphilosophie (IKKM) of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is one of ten Käte Hamburger Kollegs funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The fellowship is open to junior faculty and excellent PhD recipients. Applications, based on a short exposé, should address themes close to the IKKM research programme on Operative Ontologies.

Further information

The fellow will be expected to attend sessions of the IKKM Lectures and to present and discuss their work in the IKKM Lab. The working language is English. The fellowship either grants a stipend for the months spend in Weimar or reimburses the fellow’s home institution for the costs of a substitute. It has a period of appointment of up to six months. During this time, an office in the former Palais Dürckheim as well as access to the infrastructure of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar will be provided. The IKKM will also assist with the logistics of the stay in Weimar.

Please submit your application electronically as one PDF file, including the following documents:

  • Curriculum Vitae, including list of publications
  • Project description (2-3 pages)
  • Two samples of scholarly work (chapter, article).

The application should be sent to ikkm[ @ ] and must be submitted by 15th May 2019.
