The project Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus, hosted by the Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften in Munich, is offering short-term visiting research fellowships (1-4 months) for tenure in Munich between 1 July and 31 December 2014.
The project Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus (PAL) is dedicated to the edition and study of the Arabic and Latin versions of Ptolemy’s astronomical and astrological texts and related material. These include works by Ptolemy or attributed to him, commentaries thereupon and other works that are of immediate relevance to understanding Ptolemy’s heritage in the Middle Ages and the early modern period up to 1700 A.D.
The project is hosted by the Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften in Munich for a period of 25 years from 2013. It is supervised by Prof. Dr. Dag Nikolaus Hasse (University of Würzburg) and carried out by six scholars, including two research leaders (Dr. David Juste and Dr. Benno van Dalen), three post-doctoral researchers (currently Dr. María José Parra Pérez, Dr. Henry Zepeda and Dr. Stefan Georges) and one doctoral student (currently Bojidar Dimitrov).
We welcome applications for visiting fellowships tenable in Munich for a period of one to four months between 1 July and 31 December 2014. It is anticipated that another round of visiting fellowships will be offered in 2016.
