Job Description: The a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne (AGSHC) is a facutly wide integrated graduate school, which is oriented towards a concept of the humanities, which goes beyond the dichotomy of humanities, cultural and natural science. An integral part of the AGSHC is the Research Lab, which consists of two Postdoc junior research groups covering different thematic focus areas, which are concerned with questions in the field of epistemology and the history of science as well as in the field of anthropology and life sciences within the interdisciplinary context of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. The junior research groups will be equipped adequately and work independently.

The two AGSHC-Research Labs, Transformations of Knowledge and Transformations of Life, have a vacancy starting from October 1, 2013 for 3 Post Doc-Positions each (6 in total, payment according to TV-L). The research group Transformations of Knowledge will be concerned with an understanding of the historical dynamics of knowledge processes in the context of the specific relationship between genesis and validity. Special emphasis is put on the processes of transformation of knowledge. Subject of the research group Transformations of Life will be the perception of life and its transformation, as well as the different concepts of life involved. One task of the research group will be to precisely examine the role of free choice of individuals and groups in life-changing situations.

Appointment requirements are:
- A university degree and PhD in a subject, which belongs to the Faculty of Philosophy and has a focus in one field of the Research Labs
- A proposal (2-3 pages) is required, which is concerned with a future research project

Applications of qualified candidates are explicitly encouraged. Female applicants with equal suitability, ability and professional achievement will be given preference, provided that the personal qualities of another candidate are not more appropriate for the position. Severely disabled candidates will also be given preference in the case of overall equal aptitude and qualifications. Part-time employment is generally possible, unless official concerns conflict.

Applications including the usual documents (curriculum vitae, list of publications and courses taught, certificates documenting academic qualifications, especially the PhD degree) are to be submitted no later than May 30, 2013 to the coordinator of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne, University of Cologne.
