4 University Assistants at the Vienna Doctoral School of Historical and Cultural Studies
The Vienna Doctoral School of Historical and Cultural Studies (SHCS; shcs.univie.ac.at) comprises seven research clusters (Ancient, Byzantine and Medieval Studies; East European and Eurasian Studies; Archeology and Material Culture; Art History and Visual Culture; Social and Economic Spaces; State, Politics, and Governance in Historical Perspective; Women’s and Gender History). They transcend periods, disciplines, and regions and offer their fellows the exceptional opportunity to study in a truly cross-disciplinary setting.
The SHCS invites application from graduates of all historical-cultural subjects with an outstanding master degree who seek to work on their doctoral project within the vital and international atmosphere of the University of Vienna. Doctoral candidates are expected to conclude a doctoral thesis agreement in 12 months. They teach undergraduates and contribute to the SHCS’ activities. The SHCS offers its fellows a structured doctoral program and excellent supervision. Moreover, it promotes international mobility, networking and individual career planning through scholarships and workshops.
