Job description

The Graduate School of Ancient Philosophy at the Humboldt-University in Berlin has extended the deadline for three doctoral fellowships in ancient philosophy, to begin the coming summer semester (the fellowships begin February 1, teaching begins April 8). 

The deadline is November 10. 

The fellowships are for two years with expected renewal (assuming satisfactory progress) for a third, and involve participation in the Graduate School of Ancient Philosophy (its colloquia and seminars and so on) and in the Topoi Excellence Cluster (Area D). 

Two fellowships belong to the research group D-3 “Theoretical concepts of space and spatial objects,” and the recipients should pursue original research projects on formal theories of spatial objects, with special attention to ancient philosophy.
