Open positions

Studentische Hilfskraft »Kultur, Design- & Medienwissenschaft oder Kunstgeschichte«

Das Exzellenzcluster »Matters of Activity« sucht zur Mitarbeit im Cluster, der Vor- und Nachbereitung von Veranstaltungen und der Assistenz von Prof. Dr. Claudia Mareis zum 1. Oktober 2019 eine studentische Hilfskraft.

 

Research Associate »Filtering«(m/f/d) with 100% regular working time – E 13 TV-L HU from 01.11.2019 limited until 31.12.2022 - DR/144/19

Scientific services in research within the project »Molecular Filtering« of the Cluster of Excellence Matters of Activity. The project »Filtering« will focus on essential physical mechanisms, symbolic dimensions, and cultural techniques or filtering as information processing ranging from the molecular to macroscopic scale.

 

Research Associate »Cutting«(m/f/d) with 100% regular working time – E 13 TV-L HU from 01.11.2019 limited until 31.12.2022 - DR/145/19

Scientific services in research within the setting »Sensing Knife« within the project »Cutting« of the Cluster of Excellence Matters of Activity. The project »Cutting« focuses on the analysis of the material and virtual interface phenomena that occur during the process of cutting. It aims to redefine the cultural technique of cutting through collaborative interdisciplinary research that combines applied, design-based, experimental, and theoretical approaches.

 

PhD Candidate (Architecture, Engineering, Material Sciences, Physics) in »Material Form Function« (m/f/d): E 13 TVöD from 01.01.2020 limited until 31.12.2022 - MPG/MoA/2/19

The position focuses on the multi-scale characterization of fiber systems and fiber structures in nature and their geometric-constructive and design development into fiber-based constructions for spatial applications within the project »Material Form Function«.

 

PhD Candidate (Biology, Material Sciences, Engineering) in »Material Form Function« (m/f/d): E 13 TVöD from 01.01.2020 limited until 31.12.2022 - MPG/MoA/1/19

The project »Material Form Function« seeks to fill a doctoral student position to analyze »Tessellated Materials Systems«. The doctoral project will focus in particular on form-function relationships in two biological systems, tessellated cartilage skeletons of sharks and rays and armadillo dermal armor.

 

PhD Candidate »Cutting« (m/f/d) with 100% regular working time – E 13 TV-L HU from 01.01.2020 limited until 31.12.2022 - DR/114/19

The project »Cutting« seeks to fill a doctoral student position to further develop the concept and application of »Virtual Dissection«. The research project will focus in particular on the investigation of the use of haptic, i.e. tangible feedback in interactive data visualizations within the augmented reality and/or virtual reality environment. The case study will be rooted in functional vertebrate morphology and will test the potential for the gain of knowledge into form-function relationships.

 

PhD Candidate »Object Space Agency« (PhD position (m/f/d) with 67% regular working time - E 13 TV-L HU (third party funding, from 01.01.2020 until 31.12.2022) - DR/115/19

The project »Object Space Agency« seeks to fill a doctoral student position. Anthropology and social sciences are currently discussing various ontological approaches to materiality in the so-called 'ontological turn'. This project wants to ethnographically compare approaches that see materiality and objects as 'active' in contrast to widespread Western understandings that do not. Such active understundings can come from non-Western contexts. But they can also be found in highly specialized epistemic cultures of science, medicine or technology development.

 

PhD Candidate »Weaving« (m/f/d) with presumably full-time-employment - E 13 TV-L HU (third party funding, from 01.01.2020 until 31.12.2022) - DR/113/19

Exploration of the »3D weaving« from a variety of perspectives as part of the project »Weaving«, specifically, the characterization of weaving in three dimensions of space with consideration for the ideas of materials and design

 

More calls for PhD positions will be posted later in the year.
