03 NOMIS Fellowships: Junior and Senior Researchers 1119 views

The Center for the Theory and History of the Image (eikones) at the University of Basel invites applications from outstanding junior and senior researchers in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences for three one-year NOMIS Fellowships commencing September 1, 2021.

About the project:
  • The NOMIS Fellowship Program supports groundbreaking research projects related to how images act as models or paradigms in scientific and aesthetic contexts.
  • The center is interested in the fundamental ways images serve as instruments for making complex structures visible and accessible to interpretation.
  • In both aesthetic and experimental settings, images often assume an exemplary character, aiding epistemic and learning processes.
  • Relevant topics of research might consider, for example, the history and theory of imaging techniques in the natural sciences; the ideals and stereotypes that shape social contexts and political discussions; or the formation and dissolution of canons, iconographies, character types, and styles in the arts.
  • On the methodological side, the projects should be rooted in a specific research field, and reflect on the relation between their individual discipline and image studies.

Requirements:

  • Applicants must possess a doctoral degree
  • Applicants must have previously have published either a monograph (e.g. their dissertation) OR three articles in journals or collected volumes.
  • Applicants from all academic fields whose research relates to images as models are invited to apply.
  • Applications may be submitted in either German or English.
