Department III Seeks Visiting Scholars in “Proteins and Fibers: Scaffolding History with Molecular Signatures”

The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG), Berlin, Department III: Artifacts, Action, Knowledge, directed by Prof. Dr. Dagmar Schäfer, offers several Visiting Scholarships (residential, 4–12 months), to take place within the period from 1 July 2022 to 31 December 2023.

We invite scholars to apply for participation in the working group “Proteins and Fibers” of Department III. The working group explores how multidisciplinary scientific approaches, methods, and techniques are used to analyze traces of animals in history. We welcome applications from candidates in every field within history, the history of science and technology, science and technology studies, archaeology, fiber and material studies, and with some preference for research that is multilingual and transregional in nature.
