The Legacy of Birgitta of Sweden. Women, Politics, and Reform in Renaissance Italy

Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in History of Ideas

Job description
A Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1352) in History of Ideas is available at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is funded by the Norwegian Research Council and is associated with the project The Legacy of Birgitta of Sweden. Women, Politics, and Reform in Renaissance Italy. The project is organized into four subprojects, which investigate the legacy of Birgitta of Sweden’s extensive literary production and its possible impact on female writers and intellectuals in Renaissance Italy (1400–1650). A series of internationally acclaimed scholars participate in the project, and the research fellow will join the project’s core group of investigators/researchers. The candidate should have an interest in at least one of the four subprojects, and is expected to present a research project closely connected to the main project.

The position is available for a period of 2 years. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the dynamics of the department and its development. The main purpose of postdoctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.
