Openings: Doctoral Candidates at KU Eichstätt-Ingolstatt

Research Associate (Doctoral Candidate/Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (m/w/d))

At the earliest from April 1, 2024, the DFG-funded research training group “Practicing Place: Sociocultural Practices and Epistemic Configurations“ invites applications for two part-time positions (75%) as research associate (doctoral candidate) to be filled for a limited period probably until March 31, 2027.

You can download the call for applications in German or  English for more information.Please send your application to until February 11, 2024.

The graduate school ‘Practicing Place’ at KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt researches the intersections, tensions, and dynamics of place and practice from a decidedly interdisciplinary perspective. Place and processes of (re-)placing have become central to a discussion of complex global interrelations, precisely at a time of growing transnational interdependencies and seemingly borderless communication networks. We suggest to think of place dynamically: that is, we will consider specific practices of placing and their concomitant epistemic configuration (such as comprehending, mapping, locating, imagining, writing, experiencing, and redefining places). The goal of the training group is to unpick the ‘how’ of places in relation to the situatedness of any and all practices. We encourage applications from across the disciplinary intersections of the humanities and social sciences and the successful candidates will pursue their own, independent dissertation project within the guiding framework of ‘Practicing Place’.

We Expect

  • Excellent master’s degree or equivalent
  • Development of an independent research project that is interdisciplinary and related to the key topics of the school
  • Members are required to participate in the structured study programme and in the events and activities of the Research Group
  • Very good spoken English language proficiency (office working language is English)
  • Doctorates will be carried out at the KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt

We Offer

Within the research training group, we offer excellent conditions for early career researchers. These include:

  • An attractive research environment in the higher educational sector with supervision and mentorship from the professorial members, access to an excellent research infrastructure, and an international network
  • A structured training and study programme in support of the individual research projects and tailored to the needs of doctoral candidates
  • Opportunities for further academic career planning and development
  • Financial support of externships and stays abroad for the establishment and expansion of specialist, transdisciplinary networks on an international level

We require

Please include the following documents as a single pdf (in German or English):

  • Letter of motivation summarising your academic experience and interests, why you are personally suited for the program, and your prospective contribution to the school (no longer than 2 pages)
  • Proposal of the intended doctoral project that includes main research questions, methodology and theoretical approach (no longer than 10 pages)
  • CV, detailing your academic career to date
  • Copies of university degree certificates (if not in German language, we may request certified copies in the future)
  • Letter of recommendation from a university lecturer providing information on the applicant’s professional and methodological competence, suitability for the position and academic potential (no longer than two pages)
  • Writing sample from final thesis

The deadline for applications is February 11, 2024. Please send it to
