15 PhD Positions in European Studies
Job Offer Details
The Graduate Centre Humanities and Social Sciences of the Research Academy Leipzig invites applications from doctoral researchers in the structured PhD programme ´The New Europe´ at the University of Leipzig. The post-graduate programme focuses on the transnational entanglements of Eastern European history since the late 19th century and is directed towards candidates whose research focuses on cultural transfer processes in regional and supra-regional relations of Eastern and East-Central Europe, its potential for modernisation processes in terms of society and nation building, as well as the dynamic interrelation of national identity formations and transnational entanglements. In addition to the focus on Eastern and East-Central Europe, the programme relates to transitional areas of neighbouring regions such as Northeast Europe, West-Central Europe, the Black Sea region, and the Adriatic region. The programme proceeds from the assumption that spatial dimensions exist within processes of economic transformation and cultural identification as well as are present within social groupings and political structures. These spatial dimensions of social, cultural and political actions are linked to agents whose active shaping of space is given particular attention in these research areas and the overall programme. In addition to the creative agents, discourses and institutions are examined that help strengthen these territorial processes. The programme integrates numerous theoretical and methodological perspectives and includes many diverse fields of empirical research. As a rule, PhD students can be supervised by scholars from both universities: the University of Leipzig and the University of Wroclaw. An agreement on joint supervision (cotutelle agreement) can be established to formalise the collaboration. Students may spend at least two semesters of the programme at one of the two partner universities. Study units abroad may also include field study or data collection in other Eastern and East-Central European countries.
