3-4 fully funded PhD positions within the fields of Architectural History, Church History, Legal History and History of Ideas.


Copenhagen (DK). Negotiable starting date March 2018.


PRIVACY launches a systematic, scholarly fusion of the areas of architecture, theology, law and history. The research team will bring together four sets of field-inherent skills and approaches to privacy. The successful PhD candidates will be offered a full-time PhD position for a period of three years.
Applicants must have an MA degree within the fields of Architecture, Church History, History, History of Ideas, Legal History or related disciplines. The research language is English. The research team as a whole will work on sources in French, German, Danish, Dutch, Latin and Classical Greek. Specialist knowledge of Early Modern culture is important. Just as central is, however, readiness to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration on a broad array of different sources and work towards an integrated methodology for interdisciplinary privacy studies.
