Title: Topology of Technology - announcing 10 doctoral fellowships

Topology of Technology

- announcing 10 doctoral fellowships -

The interdisciplinary post-graduate program "Topology of Technology" at

the Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany, announces 10 doctoral

fellowships, starting Nov. 1, 2009, and running for 2 years (with an

possible option of a third year).

The program is organized by teachers from the subjects of history,

sociology, philosophy, literature and language, mechanical engineering,

informatics, and civil/construction engineering. It focuses on the

relationship between technology and space - at present, in history, and

in a possible future. It has five thematic foci:

- Information Technology and the Topology of the Network Society

- Technological Spaces of the Body and the Perception of Space

- The Circulation of Materials - Mobility - Tourism

- Topologies of Technology and Forms of Representation

- Fields of Power and the Role of Technology

The program is primarily financed by the German Research Council (DFG); see

Monthly stipends range between 1,000 and 1,365 euros.

All applicants need to have a Master degree or the equivalent thereof.

Since course work and seminars are carried out in both German and

English, it is expected that applicants are willing to learn to read and

understand spoken German. Fellows are expected to work together in our

beautifully situated villa downtown Darmstadt and thus need to take up

their residence in the city or the vicinity.

Applications are only accepted in electronic form. They should include

(1) a CV, (2) copies of academic diplomas, (3) a short description (max.

5 pages) of the planned doctoral dissertation, and (4) the names and

addresses of two university professors who are willing to act as

reference persons. Please send your application no later than

9 August 2009

to topologie AT Please make sure that it includes a

personally formulated explanation why you are particularly interested in

the topic of the program and to which thematic focus your research will,

in the first instance, contribute. If you have any questions, do not

hesitate to contact one of the directors:

Petra Gehring (gehring AT

or Mikael Hård (hard AT
