The Graduate School offers a structured doctoral program in ancient philosophy. Students in the program write dissertations in German or English. The international faculty consists of several full professors (Professors Jonathan, Beere, Christoph Helmig, Stephen Menn, Philip van der Eijk) as well as many additional faculty. The Graduate School is part of an excellent research environment and fosters an exciting exchange of people and ideas in its Ancient Philosophy & Science Network.

Assignment: The academic coordinator will be a member of the Department of Philosophy as well as of the Graduate School’s faculty. Her main task is to work intensively with doctoral students on all aspects of their dissertations, both giving feedback on written work and helping to guide the project as a whole.

Requirements: The ideal candidate will have a doctorate in philosophy or classics. We seek someone with a strong, broad background, especially in Plato, Aristotle and Neoplatonism, including both practical and theoretical philosophy; advanced knowledge of other areas is also welcome. The candidate should have excellent Greek, Latin, English, and German. Experience in teaching is an advantage, as is experience in supervising academic work. The position requires the capacity for close cooperation and a good deal of empathy.

In their applications candidates should say something about why they want to work at the Graduate School. A complete application includes

- a CV,
- academic transcripts,
- a list of publications (if any),
- a writing sample (a chapter from the thesis or an article),
- a letter explaining your background in ancient philosophy and related fields,
- at least two letters of recommendation.

Candidates who have to yet a doctoral degree should add a short description of their dissertation project and indicate when they will finish their thesis.
