Five postdoctoral positions (E14) in all areas at the Zukunftskolleg, Konstanz (Germany)

The Zukunftskolleg is a central scientific institution of the University of Konstanz for the promotion of young scientists in the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences. It forms a platform for interdisciplinary discourse between distinguished researchers in Germany and abroad, and provides young scientists with resources for obtaining third-party funding.

The Zukunftskolleg is offering 5 Research Positions (Salary Scale 14 TV-L) for the development and implementation of individual research projects / research groups. Each position can, in principle, be divided into two half-time positions. The initial appointments will commence on April 1, 2010 and end on September 30, 2011. An extension of the work contract for an additional 3.5 years will be financed by the Zukunftskolleg, provided that substantial external third-party funding for a research project has been granted.

The prerequisites for acceptance are a doctoral degree and outstanding scientific qualification as documented by research activities and publications. The ideal candidate has just finished her/his dissertation or has acquired initial work experience as a postdoctoral researcher. International experience in teaching or research and a strong interest in interdisciplinary topics are desirable.

Application deadline: November 30, 2009. Fellows will be selected on the basis of their project outlines and a two-day workshop to be held on February 22-23, 2010 at the University of Konstanz. For more information, see http://www.uni-konstanz.de/news/index.php?cont=stellausw&seite=2009/.
