‘Doing Transitions’ is inviting applications for 2 postdoctoral fellow positions

The DFG-funded Research Training Group ‘Doing Transitions’ at Goethe University Frankfurt and Eberhard Karl University of Tübingen is inviting applications for

2 postdoctoral fellows (f/m/d)
(Full-time position at the level of E13 on the German Public Service pay scale)

for fixed four-year term beginning October 1, 2021.

The Research Training Group ‘Doing Transitions’ investigates how transitions are constituted across the life course. You can find more information on our research programme as well as our training programme at doingtransitions.org/research-training. Detailed guidelines for applicants can be found here.

The postdoctoral fellows are responsible for completing their own postdoctoral research project within the thematic framework outlined in the Research Training Group’s research programme along with participating in the associated training programme. Qualified candidates will have completed an above-average doctorate in education, sociology or psychology.

Both universities are committed to equal opportunities and therefore invite and encourage qualified women and gender-diverse applicants to apply. The Research Training Group offers a variety of support for reconciling work and family demands. People with disabilities are prioritised in cases of equal qualifications.

Selected candidates will be invited to an interview that will be scheduled in the first two weeks of July subject to Covid-19 pandemic protocols.

Please send your application documents according to the instructions, outlined here, per e-mail in a single PDF document by June 15, 2021 to: doingtransitions@uni-frankfurt.de.
