DOCTORAL FELLOW IN HISTORY, THEOLOGY, JEWISH STUDIES OR RELIGIOUS STUDIES
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, International Research Training Group "Religious Cultures in 19th and 20th Century Europe"
The International Research Training Group „Religious Cultures in 19th- and 20th-century Europe“ (LMU Munich / Charles-University Prague / Adam Mickiewicz University Poznań / Masaryk University Brno in cooperation with the Collegium Carolinum/Munich) is calling for applications for one research fellowship.

MAX PLANCK INSTITUTE FOR SOCIAL ANTHROPOLOGY
2 PhD Candidates, 1 Research Fellow (Postdoc)
starting 1st of April 2016 (or as soon as possible thereafter).
The Research Group started its work in 2005 and is part of the Department ‘Integration and Conflict.’ It is currently the only group world-wide engaged in long-term comparative research on this particular region of Africa. We look at integration and conflict as interrelated dimensions of social interaction, taking into account the impact and repercussions of specific historical experiences on the societies we study. In this region, as elsewhere in the world, the construction of social relationships involves practices of inclusion and exclusion, which must be studied in relation to people’s own constructions of identity and difference. Our goal is to contribute to a better understanding of the dynamic processes that affect integration and conflict at the local, regional, and (trans)national levels.
Further information can be found on our website: http://www.eth.mpg.de
Essential Duties & Responsibilities
The group is open to research (a) in all countries along the Upper Guinea Coast of West Africa (i.e. Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast) and (b) concerning transnational/global connections and interactions involving Upper Guinea Coast societies and people.
The group will work together in Halle/Saale (except when undertaking field or archival research elsewhere, the costs of which will be covered).
Good field research skills (Research Fellow), preparedness to conduct one year of fieldwork (PhD Candidates), the ability to work in a team, communication skills, high proficiency in written and spoken English. Non-German-speaking researchers are encouraged to learn German, especially if there is relevant German literature on their particular research topic. Field research is carried out in the local language. The MPI aims at assisting in language learning.
The Research Fellow will also be expected to assist in the organisational work of the research group.
PhD positions are generally awarded for 3 years, with the possibility of two six-month extensions.
The Research Fellow position will be available for 3 years.
The Max Planck Society strives to employ more persons with disabilities and explicitly encourages applications. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society is committed to raising the proportion of women in underrepresented fields; we thus explicitly encourage applications by women.
There is no application form, but applications should include the following standard documentation:
CV, including a list of publications
Project proposal (two to four pages only)
Photocopies of university degrees
Names of 2-3 referees, who may be contacted for confidential references
