Doctoral fellowship in the History of Nursing

On behalf of the Robert Bosch Foundation, the Institute for the History of Medicine also offers a doctoral fellowship in its second main field of research, the History of Nursing. We welcome projects on the History of Nursing from the end of the 19th century through to c. 1970 in the German speaking realm.
We expect research projects to precisely place the envisaged theme within the current research context, clearly outline the hypotheses and objectives of the research and contain a time and work schedule. A detailed presentation of sources and their accessibility must be included. Please also send a general and academic CV as well as a letter of recommendation from a professor. A master’s degree or similar qualification in History (Science of History) is a necessary prerequisite. Applicants who hold an additional university degree in nursing or who have nursing experience (civilian service) will be considered first.

The PhD has to be supervised by the Institute’s director, Professor Dr Robert Jütte, or deputy director, Professor Dr Martin Dinges, and must therefore be conducted at Faculty of History of Stuttgart or Mannheim University.
The fellowship grant of € 1000 per month is available for 2 years initially and can be extended by a maximum of one year. Material costs of up to € 3000 are also available.
