Heinrich Winkelmann fellowship, Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum
The Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum, Leibniz Research Museum for Geo-resources (DBM) is again offering two international research grants for 2023 in the departments mining history, mining archaeology, materials science, archaeometallurgy and in the Montanhistorisches Dokumentationszentrum (montan.dok).
The three-month research residencies within the framework of the Heinrich Winkelmann Fellowship at the DBM offer an excellent opportunity for postdoctoral researchers to realize their own project within resource history, mining history, archaeometallurgy, materials science, conservation and restoration sciences or mining archaeology.
Preference will be given to applications that have a direct connection to the accessible holdings of montan.dok, individual exhibition objects and|or the research foci of the research departments archaeometallurgy, mining history, materials science and mining archaeology . Applicants are expected to present their research projects in colloquia and|or lecture series at the Leibniz Research Museum and at the Ruhr-University Bochum and to make the results available to the public. Preferably this is done via the in-house journals “Der Anschnitt” and “Metalla” or other relevant journals. The preparation of a third-party funding application for a longer research project at the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum can be part of the research stay and is explicitly supported.
The fellowship includes a grant of 2 000 € per month and the provision of accommodation at favourable conditions. It is aimed at postdoctoral researchers, especially in the fields of history, archaeology, materials science, conservation and restoration sciences or archaeometry. Applications from abroad are welcome. Re-applications are allowed. Current employees or fellowship holders of the DBM are excluded
