    Marina Duka

    Institution Type: Nonprofit
    Location: Germany
    Position: Research Professional

    At the Leibniz Institute for European History (IEG) in Mainz
    Two positions are held as soon as possible
    Scientific staff Church and theology history

    (Compensation TV-L EG 13) for a period of five years.
    The IEG is a non-university research institute in the Leibniz Association. It conducts research on the religious, political, social and cultural foundations of Europe in modern times and maintains an international scholarship program ( ).

    Position profile
    In each case, the holders of their own research projects carry out their own research project, which is part of the interdisciplinary research program of the IEG on dealing with the difference in modern Europe (about 1500-1990). With their projects, they are integrated into one of the three research areas of the IEG that will be reoriented from 2018 onwards under the perspectives of “pluralization and marginality”, “sacralization and deacralization” and “mobility and bordering”. Cooperation between religious disciplines and historical sciences as well as digital humanities is of great importance ( ).

    In the context of their own research, the post-doctoral students advise international research fellows, conduct scientific events and participate in the further development of the research profile of the IEG.

    A scientific further qualification with a relevant teaching activity at a university is compatible with research activities at the IEG.

    Setting conditions
    • Completed university studies of Catholic or Protestant theology in and possibly further subjects
    • Promotion (with a historical perspective)
    • Willingness to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration with the other religions-related sciences and history
    • Interest in the application of digital methods and tools
    • international research orientation
    • good knowledge of English.
    • One of the core objectives of the IEG is the equal opportunities of women and men in science through the targeted promotion of highly qualified young scientists. Therefore, women are particularly encouraged to apply.

    The position is basically divisible. People with disabilities are given preference for the same suitability. Please contact the Research Coordinator of the IEG, Dr. Joachim Berger (, +49 6131 3939370).

    Please send your application (with CV, certificates, list of publications and, if necessary, proof of third party applications), specifying the identification no. WM-ARG-2017 by 24.11.2017 by e-mail to the personnel department of the Leibniz Institute for European History ( ); please summarize all the documents in a PDF.

    Closing Date: 11/24/2017
