-------Forwarded Message--------

From: Tobias Gutmann <>

The DFG Research Training Group 1878 (RTG) of the Universities
of Cologne and Bonn on the topic of "Archaeology of Pre-Modern
Economies" invites applications for a position of Graduate
Fellowship leading to a Ph.D. at the University of Bonn to
begin on April 1, 2016. Applications are welcome in all subjects
of the Research Training Group in Bonn. Applications in the
field of Christian Archaeology (e.g. Coptic Period) are
particularly desirable. The fellowship is for 2 years with the
option to continue for a third year following a positive interim
evaluation. The fellowship will be 1.468 EUR per month.

The RTG studies economic systems and economic spaces of pre-modern
societies in terms of their structure, efficiency and dynamics
(genesis, transformation processes through to a potential
dissolution) as well as to analyse them in interaction with their
respective physical geographical, political, societal, religious
and cultural conditions. Dissertations will be focussed along
three broad lines of research, 'Economic Networks', 'Settlement
Centres and Their Environs' and 'Religious Institutions as
Economic Units'. Applications from people with severe disabilities
are welcome. Severely disabled people will be preferred where
suitability is equal. Applications from women are explicitly
encouraged. Preferential consideration will be given to women
where suitability, aptitude and expertise are equal; provided
that no other applicant has superior qualification.
