Hum­boldt-Uni­ver­si­tät zu Ber­lin - Exzel­lenz­clus­ter Mat­ters of Activity

The aim of the Clus­ter Mat­ters of Activity is to pro­vide the foun­da­ti­ons for a new cul­ture of mate­ria­lity in the sense of reinven­ting the ana­log in the digi­tal age. The deve­lop­ment of sustainable, energy-saving arte­facts and tech­ni­ques requi­res the inse­pa­ra­bi­lity of active images, spaces and mate­ri­als through an inter­di­sci­pli­nary approach in which the huma­nities, natu­ral sci­en­ces and design disci­pli­nes coope­rate as equal part­ners. Expe­ri­men­tal and design-ori­en­ted approa­ches will be com­bi­ned with his­to­ri­cal ana­ly­sis in order to draw prac­ti­cal and theo­re­ti­cal con­se­quen­ces.

Work­ing field:

Sci­entific ser­vices in research within the set­ting »Sens­ing Knife« within the pro­ject »Cut­ting« of the Cluster of Excel­lence Mat­ters of Activ­ity. The pro­ject »Cut­ting« focuses on the ana­lysis of the mater­ial and vir­tual inter­face phe­nom­ena that occur dur­ing the pro­cess of cut­ting. It aims to redefine the cul­tural tech­nique of cut­ting through col­lab­or­at­ive inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research that com­bines applied, design-based, exper­i­mental, and the­or­et­ical approaches.


Com­ple­ted aca­de­mic edu­ca­tion and excel­lent PhD in a sub­ject rele­vant to the pro­ject (phy­sics, mate­ri­als sci­ence, engi­nee­ring, phy­si­cal che­mi­stry or a rela­ted field); fur­ther qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons rela­ted to actua­tors and sen­sors are desi­red; above-average wil­ling­ness for inter­di­sci­pli­nary coope­ra­tion in the clus­ter, espe­ci­ally in the fields of medi­cine, com­pu­ter sci­ence and design sci­en­ces; very good writ­ten and spo­ken Eng­lish skills.
