Postes à pourvoir dans le cadre de l’ERC SCARCE (Sustained Concerns: Administration of Mineral Resources in Central Europe, 1550-1850)

A ERC project at the University of Vienna looks to fill the following positions:

1 Postdoctoral Researcher (full-time, 4 years):
https://jobs.univie.ac.at/job/Postdoctoral-Researcher-in-Early-Modern-History/975120201/


2 PhD Positions (0,75 FTE, 4 years):
https://jobs.univie.ac.at/job/2-PhD-Positions-in-Early-Modern-History/975120501/


The deadline is 26 October 2023, and contracts can start between 1
January and 31 October 2024.

SCARCE (Sustained Concerns: Administration of Mineral Resources in
Central Europe, 1550-1850) is working at the intersection of history of
science and technology, social and economic history, and environmental
history (https://scarce.univie.ac.at/ [1]). It provides a critical
history of today’s stakeholder conflicts by showing how contradictory
principles of resource management – economic development,
sustainability, and technological innovation – were forged in
proto-industrial settings. It explores early modern ways of provisioning
for communities, making them available for current debates on
environmental degradation and climate emergency.

A range of profiles (history of science, technology, medicine, gender,
environmental, social, economic) would fit for the positions, and
candidates are encouraged to propose their own project based on own
interest and expertise. Linguistic skills will be a key selection
criterion, as much of the sources and literature are in German and other
(East) Central European languages, but there’s room for improving
languages on the job and taking a transregional approach with additional
archives elsewhere. I’m happy to speak meet informally and discuss
project ideas (sebastian.felten@univie.ac.at)
