The *Collaborative Research Center 1095 "Discourses of Weakness and 
Resource Regimes"* at Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main, invites 
applications for

*Three PhD positions (Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in) in the field 
of History of Science*
(E 13 on the University’s TV-GU pay scale, at 65%).

The positions, starting as soon as possible, are limited until 31.12.2018.

The Collaborative Research Center 1095 employs a transepochal and 
comparative approach to the question of how discourses of weakness had 
an impact on the handling of resources. These discourses can be observed 
in the history of all cultures at all times. Changes in handling 
tangible or intangible resources constitute a special and important 
aspect of historical transformation, which will be addressed in 
collaborative research by historians, historians of science, 
anthropologists, philosophers, legal historians and sinologists. Within 
this framework the projects in history of science focus on bodies and 
actors of knowledge, which were perceived as weak in various ways.

Further information on the CRC programme is available on the German 
Research Foundation’s website, 
http://www.dfg.de/en/research_funding/programmes/coordinated_programmes/collaborative_research_centres/index.html.

The positions are related to three research projects:

*1. Scribes and scribal knowledge as a resource and the legitimization 
of power in ancient Egypt*

The project investigates the development and use of knowledge and the 
social and cultural position of scribes in ancient Egypt during the 
First Intermediate Period and its surrounding Old and Middle Kingdoms. 
It analyses the scribal autobiographies as well as other documents from 
their work, as for example letters and scientific texts.
Applicants should have a degree in ancient history with a focus on 
history of science. A good knowledge of Middle Egyptian and a good 
command of the German language are required.

*2. Knowledge of the weather, 1750-1850*

The project investigates the personal and institutional networks of 
weather observations in German-speaking Europe in the period between ca. 
1750 and 1850. It analyses the ways and forms of the circulation and 
communication of weather observations and discusses the social and 
cultural uses of this knowledge in the context of repeated and varied 
criticisms of its validity.

Applicants should have a degree in modern history, history of science, 
or in a natural science relevant to the topic. A very good knowledge of 
the history of modern science and a good command of the German language 
are required.

*3. Knowledge of materials and resource regimes of materials research in 
the GDR*

The project will deal with the foundation and development of a leading 
institute for solid state physics and materials research at the East 
German Academy of Science and with the formation of the materials 
sciences in the GDR. The focus of the project will be on the 
institutional development of the interdisciplinary field of materials 
research and on the contributions of materials sciences to the demands 
of a country lacking essential resources.

Requirements for appointment are a degree in modern history, in history 
of science, or in a natural science relevant to the subject, a very good 
knowledge in the history of modern science and a good command of the 
German language.

The successful applicants are expected to participate actively in 
shaping and advancing the research center’s collective agenda. 
Applications with the usual supporting documents (degree certificates, 
cv, list of publications) should be submitted by 28 February 2015 (mail 
or e-mail) to Judith Delombre, History of Science, History Department, 
Goethe University, Norbert-Wollheim-Platz 1, 60629 Frankfurt am Main, 
Germany, [log in to unmask]
