Call for Applications: Archival Research and Cataloging Projects

May 16, 2017


The Franz Rosenzweig Minerva Research Center at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach (DLA) announce the availability of paid and stipendiary archival research & cataloguing projects for graduate and postgraduate students. These projects are made possible thanks to financial support from the German Federal Foreign Office.

Students will organize and describe an unexplored archival collection at an established archive, library or research institution in Israel and thus help to make this collection accessible to future research. Students may, within the bonds of possibility, work on a collection related to their research interests and academic background. They will work with the project coordinator as well as German and Israeli archives and library staff and participate in a research seminar at the Rosenzweig Minerva Research Center. M.A. students, Ph.D. candidates and post-doctoral students in the fields of history, literature, philosophy, art history, theatre or Jewish studies programs are eligible. Background knowledge on German-Jewish history is needed. Candidates should have a good working knowledge of Hebrew, German and English.

Traces and Treasures

We are currently especially looking for:

a) students with knowledge of the history of theatre in Israel

b) students with knowledge of the history of architecture, urban and landscape planning in British Mandate Palestine and Israel

c) students with sound knowledge of the history of German-Jewish immigration to Mandate Palestine/Israel.

d) students with knowledge of art history, including Muslim art.

There is no deadline for applications. However, candidates interested in working on an archival collection during 2017 are kindly advised to apply by 21st of May 2017. Please submit a statement (250 words) outlining your research interests as well as a curriculum vitae.
