Doctoral fellowship in Patient History (Social History of Medicine)

The Institute for the History of Medicine of the Robert Bosch Foundation Stuttgart offers a dissertation fellowship in support of its current main research interest (Patient History). Projects on all eras and European cultures are considered. We welcome in particular research that focuses on gender history or economic aspects.

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. Please also include a general and academic CV as well as a letter of recommendation from a professor.

The PhD dissertation will be supervised by the Institute’s director or deputy director and therefore needs to be conducted at the universities of Stuttgart or Mannheim. The fellowship grant of € 1100 per month is available for 2 years initially and can be extended by a maximum of one year.
