We are looking for 

highly qualified and motivated Doctoral Researchers to join the Faculty of Built Environment at Tampere University for 2 to 4 years fixed-term positions starting 1 February 2023. Our faculty is made up of two units: Civil Engineering and Architecture. The successful candidates will be able to explore topics relating to any of the research fields of our faculty

Job description 

The goal of a position of doctoral researcher is to complete a doctoral degree in the Built Environment Doctoral Programme at Tampere University. The aim to complete the degree is 4 years and doctoral researchers are hired on a fixed-term basis for 2 to 4 years. The exact length of the contract will depend on the current stage of your studies and your expected graduation date.  

Besides conducting research for your dissertation, your position may include teaching or other duties in the faculty related to your studies. 

Requirements 

A necessary requirement is a M.Sc. degree in a relevant field. During the doctoral researcher position application phase, you do not yet need a study right within the faculty’s doctoral program, but it is required before starting in the position. 

Applicants for a position as a doctoral researcher should contact a responsible supervisor, who commits to the supervision and signs the preliminary research plan.

Please, see below for the necessary documents attached to the application. The selection procedure may be supplemented by an interview (remotely). Good oral and written communication skills and cooperation abilities are necessary factors in the selection procedure. Please note that before signing the employment contract and commencing in the position, the selected candidates must also have a study right within the doctoral programme. A requirement in granting the study right is passing an English language skill test with a sufficiently high result. The selected candidates, who do not yet have this study right, will be informed about the separate application procedure.  

When selecting candidates for the positions, the following criteria will be considered: 

  • Ambition, scientific quality and innovativeness of the preliminary research plan 
  • Suitability of the research for the research profile of the faculty 
  • Merits of the applicant (for example prior performance in studies and/or academic publications)   
  • Demonstrated competence and motivation to successfully complete a doctoral degree

We offer  

The positions will be filled for a 2 to 4 years fixed-term period starting on 1 February 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter (but no later than June 1, 2023).  

The salary will be based on both the job requirements and the employee’s personal performance in accordance with the salary system of Finnish universities. According to the criteria applied to teaching and research staff, the position of a doctoral researcher is placed on level 2-4 of the job requirements scale. A trial period of six months applies to all our new employees.

Postdoctoral Researcher (Early modern disability history) / Tutkijatohtori (Varhaismoderni vammaisuuden historia)

Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences create a unique environment for multidisciplinary, inspirational and high-impact research and education. Our universities community has its competitive edges in technology, health and society. www.tuni.fi/en

The research project ‘Lived Religion and the Changing Meaning(s) of Disability from the Late Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution’’, affiliated with the Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence in the History of Experiences (HEX), Faculty of Social Sciences, invites applications for the position of

Postdoctoral Researcher (History)

for a fixed term of two years.

The Academy of Finland funded research project ‘Lived Religion and the Changing Meaning(s) of Disability from the Late Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution’ runs till August 2025. The project analyses the ways religious life and religious understanding influenced the lived experience and everyday life of people with physical and mental disabilities in Europe from the Late Middle Ages to the industrial revolution. It will reveal the continuities and changes in the ways bodies and minds that were deemed different were viewed, and the role faith played in this. 

HEX is an international research centre that focuses on the theoretical and empirical study of experiences in history with three overlapping research teams, which are Lived Religion, Lived Nation, and Lived Welfare State. HEX represents the history of experiences as a fruitful new way of doing social and cultural history. Researchers at HEX combine the history of experiences with a variety of different approaches: e.g. the history of emotions; welfare and nationalism studies; history of religious and social movements; study of hagiography; gender and oral history; digital humanities; and the history of childhood and youth.

The Faculty of Social Sciences / History also hosts Trivium – Tampere Centre for Classical, Medieval and Early Modern Studies, which is a thriving network for scholars of pre-modern and early modern history.

Job Description

The postdoctoral researcher will focus on lived religion and disability in early modern (ca. 1500–1700) Central Europe (preferably German-speaking areas but other areas are considered as well). The research will examine the influence of the Protestant Reformation on perceptions and experiences of bodily and mental impairments to assess how the profound religious changes occurring during the period shaped emerging notions of ‘disability’. The research will analyze diverse sources from the Reformation to evaluate how far understandings and experiences of ‘disability’ differed from those found by scholars for the late medieval world. 

The postdoctoral researcher is expected to publish two peer-reviewed research articles, contribute to the joint project publications, and attend other activities of the research team. They are expected to present their research at seminars and academic conferences. HEX organizes regular seminars, where the postdoctoral researcher is also encouraged to present their work. A successful candidate is expected to show interest and enthusiasm towards working in a team.

HEX and Tampere University offer possibilities to attend seminars and guest lectures, participate in international conferences, and network and form new contacts. 

Requirements

The selected candidate must hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field, such as history or church history. The degree must be completed before the end of the application period.  

The selected candidate must have the ability to conduct independent, high-quality scientific research. The candidate should have excellent analytical and methodological skills and be able to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a research team. A successful candidate is expected to have experience and training in Early Modern and/or Late Medieval Central European history and the history of disability. 

Sufficient language and paleography skills are necessary to successfully complete the research and work in an international research team. Excellent skills in written and oral English are required. 

Please be prepared to provide proof of your merits when requested.

We offer

The position will be filled for a fixed-term period of two years (24 months). The planned (earliest) starting date is January 1, 2023, or as mutually agreed. A trial period of six months applies to all our new employees.
