Postdoctoral Researcher “Anatomy in 16th-century Padua” (University of Würzburg, Germany)
Call for applications
The Institute for the History of Medicine at the University of Würzburg, Germany, is looking for candidates for the position of a post-doctoral researcher. The successful candidate will be working on a project on the teaching of anatomy and on anatomical demonstrations at the University of Padua, 1540-1600. Research will focus on an analysis of various sets of extensive, handwritten, Latin student notes that have survived from this period, mostly from German students who studied in Padua.
The position will be for three years. The starting date is negotiable. The salary is the standard salary for full-time positions of this kind in Germany. In addition, there are some funds for trips to archives, libraries and conferences and for a student assistant. The successful candidate will be based in Würzburg and will join a group of other researchers working on different aspects of early modern medicine.
Candidates must hold a PhD or an equivalent degree and must be fluent in either German or English or both. Good Latin skills are indispensable. Experience with early modern Latin manuscripts, previous work in the history of medicine or science and some basic knowledge of Italian would be of advantage.
The University of Würzburg seeks to increase the number of its female researchers and especially encourages suitably qualified female researchers to apply. Candidates with a certified, severe physical handycap will be given preference over other candidates with essentially the same qualification for the position.
Please send your application (cover letter, CV and a list of publications only) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application deadline is May 31, 2018. Interviews are expected to take place in June or July.
Those interested may contact Prof. Dr. Dr. Michael Stolberg (email@example.com) for more detailed information.
