Here’s one recent opportunity for students in Germany interested in global history. As the Friedrich-Meinecke-Institut and the Lateinamerika-Institut at the Free University of Berlin prepare for the creation of a Dahlem International Network Professorship in Latin American Studies, the need has arisen for a Studentische Hilfskraft (Student Research Assistant) (41 hours a month) to assist with an ongoing research project on the social history of global cities since 1800, among other research and administrative tasks. (More information on the post is available here, albeit only in German).
The ideal candidate will be on their way towards completing an MA or an advanced Bachelor’s student (in the German system), with an interest in global history since 1800 and excellent English language skills. Competence in additional foreign languages is a plus.
Those interested are requested to send a letter of introduction, a Lebenslauf (German CV), and proof of prior internships to Michael Goebel (Freie Universität Berlin) no later than July 17, 2015 via e-mail.
