2 Doctoral Researcher Positions (part-time), Ruhr-University Bochum

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of the leading research universities. The university draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

The „Institute for Social Movements“ (ISB) is a central research institute of the RUB under the directorship of Professor Stefan Berger, which has a long track record of researching the comparative history and present-day relevance of social movements.

The ISB is looking for

2 doctoral researchers (m/f/d) (part time 25,88 h/w; payment according to German public service scale - E 12/13 TV-L)

in the framework of the research project “Europe’s Postwar Consensus: A Golden Age of Social Cohesion and Social Mobility?”. This five-year project (2019-24) will be led by Prof. Dr. Jan De Graaf, recipient of the 2019 Sofja Kovalevskaja Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung and the Federal Ministry for Education and Research. The positions are available for three years from 1 June 2020.

The first doctoral research project explores the social cohesion of postwar European societies on the basis of an integrated comparison between two industrial regions in Europe, including one Eastern European case (not in the GDR). 

The second doctoral research project investigates how a career in the police or the security services constituted a vehicle of upward mobility for youngsters from a disadvantaged rural background. It focuses on Italy in Western Europe, while a second Eastern European case study is for the applicant to decide.

Applicants (m/f/d) for the second project require at least reading knowledge of Italian and of the language required for the second case study.
