Deadline:  2019-01-10

Location:  Bonn, Germany

The University of Bonn, Germany, invites applications for a PhD fellowship in history and philosophy of physics. The position will provide an outstanding early-career scholar with a unique opportunity to pursue research in collaboration with the other members of the new Lichtenberg group in integrated history and philosophy of physics.

The focus of the group during the first five years will be an analysis of the history and conceptual foundations of gravitational physics since Einstein found the field equations of general relativity in 1915; a particular focus will be on black hole physics and gravitational wave physics.

Applications from candidates with a suitable background in philosophy of physics, history of physics or indeed gravitational physics itself, would be particularly welcome.
