Job advertisement: 4 PostDoc Positions within the Leibniz Post Graduate School: Resources in Societies (ReSoc)

Resources and their appropriation represent an outstanding vehicle to describe social change in human history. ReSoc defines resources as a product of individual appropriation and social construction, as material sources and as mental perceptions. A transdisciplinary approach integrates social and cultural studies, natural sciences and economics to explore the transformative potential of resources and their subsequent social impact.

Therefore the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum (DBM) and the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) have established a collaboration which will enable PostDocs to work and teach in a favoring scientific environment. Moreover, ReSoc is oriented at providing a sustainable postdoc strategy: Scientific, management and museum career tracks will help young researchers to take successfully the next steps towards a professional future.
