The Chair in Economic and Organizational Sociology (Prof. Henning Hillmann, Ph.D.) at the University of Mannheim is inviting applications for a
Post-Doctoral Position in Historical and/or Organizational Network Analysis
(starting date: February 1, 2016).
Our team is pursuing research on empirical questions at the intersection of political sociology, economic history and organizational analysis, with an emphasis on the methodological tools of quantitative network analysis. Among others, we have contributed to understanding entrepreneurship in transition economies, the network organization of early modern overseas trade, and the network foundations of political mobilization. Our group is embedded in a dynamic and supportive research environment provided by the School of Social Sciences, the Mannheim Center of European Social Research (MZES), and the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) at the University of Mannheim.
We are seeking a motivated candidate who is committed to an innovative research agenda in historical and/or organizational network analysis. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in sociology or a related discipline, such as economic history, organizational behavior or political science, among others. Successful applicants will combine a strong substantive background in one or more of these fields with a solid experience in quantitative network analysis. Ideally, this background should be documented by international peer-reviewed publications and a strong publishing potential. Programming skills in R, Python or related environments are an advantage. Fluency in English is a requirement.
The full-time position is available for 2 years, and may be renewed contingent on a successful research output. The successful candidate should also be committed to excellent teaching in the B.A. and M.A. programs in sociology (2 courses per semester). Teaching may be offered in English. Contributions to the research activities at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES) are expected.
The salary is set in accordance with the German public sector scale TV-L (E 13, 100%). The University of Mannheim is an equal opportunity employer. Candidates with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualifications. The University of Mannheim seeks to increase the percentage of its female faculty members in research and teaching. Thus, qualified women are especially encouraged to apply.
Candidates should submit a cover letter, CV, a statement describing their research plans, teaching experience, publications and professional accomplishments, and two letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on November 30, 2015. Applications should be sent to:
