The Research Training Group focuses on the emergence of world politics as a distinct field of the political embedded in a world society environment. Rather than reducing world politics and its history to a range of dominant organisational forms, such as nation-states or empires, and the relations between them, the group adopts a comprehensive perspective covering the processes and practices that underpin the emergence of world politics as a highly complex social realm.
Accordingly, it builds on the expertise of different fields – International Relations, Sociology (world society theories), Global History, and International Law, in order to situate itself in, as well as contribute to, a fast-growing international research landscape of ‘global historical sociology’.
As part of the Research Training Group "World politics: The emergence of political arenas and modes of observation in world society", funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), ten doctoral positions with a maximum funding period of three years will be filled as of 1 October 2023.
The research tasks include:
The Research Training Group offers doctoral students the opportunity to carry out their doctoral projects in a closely networked research environment. In addition to employment, some financial support will be provided for the organisation of workshops, for travel to conferences and for research stays abroad. In case of completing the doctorate within three years, there is also the possibility of applying for subsequent post-doc start-up financial support.
Employment is conducive to scientific qualification.
