Seeking researchers in the areas of Embodied Dependencies, Gender and Intersectionality, and Grammars of Dependencies, Bonn University in Germany is currently searching for three early-career post-doctoral researchers to act as team leaders in research groups for three different research areas. Each contract will last up to two three-year terms at the Bonn Center for Dependency and Slave Studies (BCDSS). Each research group leader will be a key member of the BCDSS in a position to shape the BCDSS' future research strategy and research activities. The candidate will also teach at least two seminars to BA and MA students at the university.

 The three research areas are listed and defined below:

  • Embodied Dependencies examines primarily non-textual relics of asymmetrical dependencies, which have been “inscribed” in bodies and artifacts. The aim of this research area is to correct the widespread imbalance in the academic evaluation of written and non-written traditions by taking a perspective from pre-modern societies into consideration. Application is due August 31.

    For more details concerning the position, please refer to the Career Center.

 

  • Gender and Intersectionality with a focus on how asymmetrical dependencies emerge at the intersections of gender, status, class, ethnicity, religion, and age. The university welcomes research on any periods before the 20th century and on any non-European societies. Application is due September 30.

    For more details concerning the position, please refer to the Career Center.

 

  • Grammars of Dependencies focuses on forms of durable, asymmetrical individual, social and spatial dependency in societies before the 20th century, or in other words, dependencies which are primarily connected to labor (slavery, serfdom, debt bondage, etc.) or linked to wider social dynamics (e.g. tribute, punishment, religion, etc). Preference will be given to applicants interested in the history of concepts. Application is due September 30.
