Doctoral and Postdoctoral Positions Ruprecht-Karls Universität Heidelberg

The Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 933 “Material Text Cultures. Materiality and Presence of the Scriptural in Non-Typographic Societies”, has been set by the German Research Council to commence work on 1 July 2011 at the Ruprecht Karl University Heidelberg (collaborating partner: College of Jewish Studies, Heidelberg). Researchers working in the field of cultural studies will investigate the material presence of writing in various fields of practice in “non-typographic societies” that possess no, or no widespread methods for the mass production of writing. With this, the centre will chart those receptive practices which in all probability were employed for written text on the strength of its material presence. The ‘material text cultures’ thus identified in non-typographical societies will then undergo systematic description and be compared with those of typographical societies.

The CRC 933 “Material Text Cultures” is now looking for junior researchers with outstanding qualifications who are keen to contribute their own specific abilities to the development of a new research paradigm in the field of text-based cultural studies. Vacancies for doctoral candidates (65% TVL E 13) and post-doctoral researchers (TVL E 13) are being offered in the following sub-projects (SP) at the CRC:
