Working environment: The Centre for Advanced Studies “Human Abilities”, funded by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft), aims to better understand human abilities by doing foundational work in three areas of philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of action. More specifically, the project aims to clarify the nature of human abilities; to determine which abilities are required for acquiring knowledge, and how knowledge of abilities is possible; and to analyse how free action can be understood better by reference to human abilities. In all three areas the project aims to build bridges (i) between historical accounts and contemporary theories and (ii) between different sub-disciplines of philosophy. “Human abilities” is a joint project of Freie Universität Berlin (project leader: Prof. Barbara Vetter) and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (project leader: Prof. Dominik Perler).

In particular, he/she will be in charge of the financial administration, the exchange with the university administration, the advertisement of academic events, the academic correspondence (both in German and English), the administrative organisation of workshops and conferences.


Requirements: The successful candidate should have a degree as an administrative professional or a comparable degree; knowledge of budget law; expertise in the management of third-party funded projects; general management experience; excellent knowledge of German and English; communication skills; knowledge of office software programs, if possible also of layout software.


Application procedure: The application should include the following documents: a cover letter, a CV, degree certificates. Please send your application, quoting the reference (HU Ref. Nr: DR/195/19), as one single pdf document by e-mail to Prof. Dr. Dominik Perler, human-abilities@hu-berlin.de (no snail mail). The deadline for the application is 11th December 2019. We expect that interviews will be held in January 2020.
