TitelResearch Assistantship in German Literature, University of Waterloo
BeschreibungThe PhD program in German in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Waterloo invites applications for a PhD research assistantship/scholarship as part of the project “German Romanticism as the Vital Life Force of Homeopathy” funded through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The research assistantship/scholarship is valued at CAD $22,000 per year for four years.

The research project investigates through the lens of Romanticism the founding of homeopathy by Samuel Hahnemann in Germany, starting in 1796 with his notion of “similia similibus curentur.” To understand homeopathy via Romantic tenets astir at the time means to underscore the importance of the literary, cultural field in this momentous chapter to the history of science and medicine, and one that has enjoyed a vibrant afterlife up to our present day, but one whose groundings in Romantic hermeneutics and semiotics have been ignored.

The PhD in German program at the University of Waterloo ( encompasses applied linguistics (sociolinguistics, SLA, CALL) and Literature and Film Studies (literature, film, drama, hypermedia & theory), and students attain a critical knowledge base in both areas. Professional development and training are an integral part of the program.

The successful candidate will have a master's degree in a relevant field and expertise (or interest) in such areas as German literature, German cultural studies, and/or German intellectual thought. A high proficiency in both German and English is required. The research assistant will register for the PhD in German program with a specialization in Literature. S/he will be fully involved in all aspects of the project, including archival research in Germany, and will also have the opportunity to contribute to the Department’s undergraduate teaching.
