10 PhD-scholarships (partial and full) for Structured Doctoral Programme: Religion - Knowledge - Discourse
January 31, 2014

Call for Applications
Structured Doctoral Programme “Religion – Knowledge – Discourse”

The Structured Doctoral Programme “Religion – Knowledge – Discourse” at the Humboldt University of Berlin has been established as part of a new initiative for German universities which encourages and rewards academic excellence. Five institutes across three faculties have come together to offer an inter- and transdisciplinary structured doctoral programme for outstanding PhD candidates.
We are now accepting applications for this three year programme, due to begin on 1st April 2014. The programme offers:
• 9 partial scholarships (covering tuition fees and travel costs)
• 1 full scholarship
The programme aims to facilitate an enriching inter- and transdisciplinary research environment. As such we are inviting applications from potential and early-stage PhD candidates from a variety of disciplines. Both German and International applicants are encouraged to apply.
Research proposals should be aimed at an investigation of communicative and discursive processes, within which the categories “Religion” and “Knowledge” become constructed and conventionalised. The relationship between discourses relating to religion and knowledge should be critically analysed with reference to specific contexts.
The programme especially encourages a broad geographical spread of topics, as well as inter- and transdisciplinary approaches. Focus may be placed either on current academic issues or on the period of the late 18th century till present day.
The programme offers:
• A structured curriculum and individual supervision to ensure timely completion of your doctoral research project within three years
• Tailored academic training to complement your individual research area (e.g. methodologies, interdisciplinary approaches etc.)
• Additional courses and workshops in key research competencies hosted by the Humboldt Graduate School
• Regular colloquia and group mentoring in self-organizing working groups
• Opportunities for continuous academic exchange and international networking, e.g. through participation in conferences
• A compulsory 3-12 month research stay abroad (e.g. for fieldwork)
• Opportunities to develop and strengthen skills important in the field of academia (e.g. organizing a conference or workshop, holding a lecture)
Course fees will be covered for all programme participants. The possibility for covering costs incurred through conference participation and/or the compulsory research stay abroad may be provided by the programme if no external funding is available.
Programme participants are encouraged to independently secure funding for the duration of the programme. Failing this, our programme offers support to participants in identifying potential scholarships or funding opportunities.
One full-time scholarship of €1.365 p.m. (plus €103 material allowance) is awarded to a promising candidate for the programme’s duration from April 2014 – March 2017. Please indicate in your application whether you would like to be considered for this scholarship. If so, you may also voluntarily refer to your financial situation in your personal statement.
Eligibility
• Graduates or early stage doctoral candidates must hold a university degree that formally qualifies them to matriculate as a PhD student within their desired field. This usually entails having a Masters level qualification in a similar area to which the doctoral candidate intends to write his/her thesis.
• The working language of the programme is English. For non-native speakers, a proof of proficiency (level: C1) is required. The PhD-thesis may, however, be written in either German or English. If you are planning on writing the thesis in German and you are a non-native speaker, a proof of proficiency is also required (DHS 2). If other language skills are required for conducting your research (e.g. Arabic, Hebrew etc.), a proof of proficiency must also be provided.
Application requirements
The following documents must be included in your application:
• Research proposal
• Personal Statement
• Curriculum Vitae
• Copy of Master’s (or equivalent) degree
• A recent academic reference or letter of recommendation
• Proof of language proficiency (see above)
• Statement of current secured funding and/or future scholarship opportunities (or equivalent grants)
• If you have already found a supervisor who is not affiliated with this programme, please include a statement from them concerning your research proposal
Please note that if your records and/or transcripts have not been issued in German or English, an officially translated copy needs to be included.
Applications should be submitted no later than 31th January 2014 to:

tenure-track position in philosophy of science or logic at the University of Salzburg
December 27, 2013

The Department of Philosophy at the Faculty of Cultural and Social Sciences at the University of Salzburg seeks applications for a tenure-track position in philosophy of science or logic. The appointment will be made within the Austrian A2 salary scheme (initial salary is at least 56.485,80 Euro per annum with automatic pay increases as detailed in the "Kollektivvertrag für die ArbeitnehmerInnen der Universitäten"). The starting date is 1 October 2014.

The Department of Philosophy in Salzburg is known for its analytic and formal approach to philosophy. The logic and philosophy of science unit is led by the newly-appointed Professor Charlotte Werndl (who is now still at the London School of Economics and will join the Department in September 2014). The Department is expanding and two additional full professors and several Assistant professors (tenure-track positions) and doctoral students will be hired in the next months and years. The appointee will join a vibrant philosophy community. There will be colloquia with international speakers as well as various other activities such as workshops, conferences and reading groups.

The main tasks of the appointee will be research and teaching in philosophy of science or logic. The research should use analytic and formal methods to address philosophical questions. The initial teaching load is four hours per semester on average (eight hours on average after tenure). The appointee will also be expected to supervise Ph.D. and Master students and to take on some management tasks. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in philosophy, philosophy of science or logic. Publications in internationally leading journals, interdisciplinary research and evidence of visibility in the international scientific community are desirable.

The employment is initially for six years. After a successful tenure procedure it will be made permanent. The conditions for tenure are either the achievement of certain aims (which will be agreed upon before the start of employment) or a habilitation. The tenure procedure usually takes place after four to six years (for advanced candidates this can be earlier).

Fluency in German is not mandatory at the time of application. However, the expectation is that the appointee will be able to teach in German from the third year of the appointment onwards. Master and Ph.D. courses can be taught in English, but undergraduate courses are usually taught in German.

Applications should be sent to the rector of the University:

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Heinrich Schmidinger

Entwicklung der Straße der Philosophie
February 1, 2014

Die deutsche Philosophie - von Jakob Böhme, über Kant, Fichte und Hegel, bis zu Marx, Nietzsche, Lotze, Habermas etc. - hatte und hat enormen Einfluss auf die europäische und weltweite Kultur, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Dies gelang immer dann, wenn sie sich nicht in akademischen Elfenbeitürmen verbarg, sondern den Geist der Zeit auch praktisch inspirierte.
In Anlehnung an den ersten Satz deutscher Philsophie: "Ich vergleiche alle Philosophia ... einem köstlichen Baum, der in einem schönen Lustgarten wächst." (Jakob Böhme in "Aurora") entsteht eine "Straße der Philosophie", welche die ereignisreichsten Orte deutscher Philosophie verbindet und jeweils vor Ort für Besucher erlebbar macht.
Zur konkreten Mit-Entwicklung dieses Projekts suchen wir einen philosophisch als auch tourismuswirtschaftlich kompetenten Mitarbeiter.

Doctoral Fellowships in Ancient Philosophy in Berlin
January 20, 2014

Graduate Program in Ancient Philosophy

Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin

Apply by 20 January 2014 for the

- three-year doctoral program in ancient philosophy or
- one year of pre-doctoral studies

The Graduate Program in Ancient Philosophy (http://www.gsap.hu-berlin.de) at the Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin (http://www.hu-berlin.de) is pleased to offer fellowships for doctoral studies in Ancient Philosophy and Science. We especially welcome proposals addressing the dialogue between different forms and models of knowledge in ancient Greek, Roman and Arabic philosophy and science.

Two fellowships are reserved for non-German applicants because they are funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The fellowships cover the living costs at Berlin and are for full-time study only. There are no tuition fees, but there are low administrative fees amounting to ca. 250-300 Euros per semester (which include a ticket for public transportation in Berlin).

Students may also apply for a funded pre-doctoral year of studies. Typical candidates for this option are students who need one year of preparation before beginning their dissertation, for instance candidates who hold a BA but not an MA in philosophy or classics.

The Graduate Program in Ancient Philosophy
The three-year program leads to the doctoral degree in Philosophy or Classics. It includes colloquia, dissertation seminars, reading groups, international workshops, and intensive short courses. The program centers on the writing of a doctoral dissertation (in English or German). The language of instruction is English.

As part of the Berlin Graduate Program of Ancient Studies (BerGSAS)(http://berliner-antike-kolleg.org/bergsas/), the program is embedded in a lively community of scholars and institutions (such as the Excellence Cluster Topoi) all devoted to ancient studies. BerGSAS offers structured programs of doctoral studies and involves the participation of the Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin, the Freie Universitaet Berlin and a number of non-university research institutions.

The international Ancient Philosophy & Science Network (APSN)
Students of the program are automatically part of the international Ancient Philosophy & Science Network (APSN) founded by the Graduate Program. Its international partners are among the foremost departments in the world for ancient and late ancient philosophy and science.

Applications
The closing date for applications for the fellowships is 20 January 2014. Interviews will be held in Berlin during the first week of March. Candidates from overseas will not need to travel to Berlin for an interview.
