Vacature: PhD position Modern History (gender/science history)

Applications are invited for one PhD position (based at University of Groningen) in the research project “Scientific Personae in Cultural Encounters” (SPICE), in collaboration with the Departments of History of Stockholm University, Leuven University and the MPIWG in Berlin. The PhD project focuses on the way in which the International Federation of University Women through its fellowship program and intense international exchange enabled (young) women researchers and university based scientists to develop scientific personae that helped them in their scientific career in a time when the research university developed in a reconstituted international field of force (1920-1940).

It has more than 5000 students and 700 staff members, who are working at the frontiers of knowledge every day.
