Birgit Kolboske

Research Scholar
Research Scholars are early career scholars who have ordinarily already had at least one postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent academic experience. This is the equivalent of an entry-level academic position (e.g. assistant professor in North America, Lecturer in the United Kingdom, Maître de conférences in France). These scholars carry considerable responsibilities (no more than 30% of their time) within their research unit.

Profile

My current research focuses on gender issues in science organizations and feminist perspectives on epistemology and history of science. Another interest is the National Socialist era and the Holocaust, and in particular the role of interpreters in the military tribunals after World War II—from the Nuremberg trials to the Frankfurt Auschwitz trials.
