Job Reference: 01070
Closing Date: 22/05/2018
Salary: £34,831 fixed for 2 years
The Warburg Institute is seeking to appoint a post-doctoral research fellow associated with its newly established Professorship in the History of Art, Science and Folk Practice. This is a two-year position, with an emphasis both on developing the candidate’s own research and on collaborating on interdisciplinary projects under way at the Warburg Institute.
The candidate will have completed their PhD by September 30, 2018, and will be establishing a compelling research orientation in one or more of the fields of the History of Science, History of Art, and Cultural or Social Anthropology. In keeping with the forward-looking approach of the current Warburg Institute, the candidate’s work should explore connections among the history of science, the history of art and images, and historical or present cultural practices. S/he will work closely with the new Chair, Professor John Tresch, and will support the Institute’s ambitions to restore, develop and elaborate the theoretical, cultural historical and anthropological implications of the work of Aby Warburg.
This is fixed term post for 2 years.
