Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin - Cluster of Excel­lence "Con­test­a­tions of the Lib­eral Script" (SCRIPTS) - Exzel­len­za­uss­chreibun­gen

Research Assist­ant (Prae­doc) (m/f/d)

65%-part-time job | lim­ited to 3 years | Ent­gelt­gruppe 13 TV-L FU | Ref­er­ence code: SCRIPTS_Fedu

Work­ing field:

The Cluster of Excel­lence „Con­test­a­tions of the Lib­eral Script” (SCRIPTS) ana­lyses the con­tem­por­ary con­tro­ver­sies about the lib­eral order from a his­tor­ical, global, and com­par­at­ive per­spect­ive. It con­nects the aca­demic expert­ise in the social sci­ences and human­it­ies as well as area stud­ies in Ber­lin, col­lab­or­ates with research insti­tu­tions in all world regions, and main­tains cooper­at­ive ties with major polit­ical, cul­tural and social insti­tu­tions [http://www.scripts-berlin.eu].

The pro­ject “Nego­ti­at­ing the Futures of Edu­ca­tion”, ana­lyses the ways in which com­pet­ing vis­ions of the future of edu­ca­tion are nego­ti­ated and con­tested within inter­na­tional organ­iz­a­tions. It focusses in par­tic­u­lar on how nar­rat­ives about the future of edu­ca­tion are con­struc­ted by two pro­jects by the UNESCO ("Future of Edu­ca­tion") and the OECD ("Future of edu­ca­tion and skills 2030"). Our main focus will be dir­ec­ted towards the micro­pol­it­ical “back­stage” pro­cesses under­pin­ning the con­struc­tion of the respect­ive nar­rat­ives of the future(s) of edu­ca­tion. We are par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in the ways in which the inclu­sion of pre­vi­ously mar­gin­al­ized voices in the con­sultat­ive pro­cesses under­pin­ning pro­jects does or does not chal­lenge reign­ing “ortho­dox­ies” in the lib­eral edu­ca­tion script. The pro­ject employs a qual­it­at­ive approach, rely­ing par­tic­u­larly on eth­no­graphic meth­ods, nar­rat­ive and dis­course ana­lysis. 

We value diversity and wel­come all applic­a­tions – inde­pend­ent of gender, nation­al­ity, eth­nic and social back­ground, reli­gion, dis­ab­il­ity, age, sexual ori­ent­a­tion and iden­tity. Applic­a­tions from mem­bers of under­rep­res­en­ted groups in the academy are espe­cially wel­come. Applic­a­tions from people with an acknow­ledged dis­ab­il­ity status will be con­sidered pref­er­en­tially.

Job descrip­tion:

  • Qual­it­at­ive research on the con­struc­tion of nar­rat­ives on the future(s) of edu­ca­tion in the con­text of the two IO ini­ti­at­ives men­tioned above

  • Col­lab­or­a­tion with other research­ers in the Cluster to relate res­ults of the pro­ject to the broader research agenda of SCRIPTS.
  • The pos­i­tion includes the oppor­tun­ity to obtain a doc­toral degree.
