The Biblical Studies Section of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Copenhagen, is offering a fully funded 3-year PhD scholarship commencing 1 June 2021.
The PhD is a part of the three-year research program “AMRAM: Apocalypticism: Manuscripts, Rewriting, and Authority Management,” (2021-2024) funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark. AMRAM investigates how apocalyptic texts appropriate, maintain, renew, and claim authority. The Aramaic composition Visions of Amram (4Q543-547), found among the Dead Sea Scrolls from Qumran, serves as case study and as the starting point for an investigation, which is designed to enrich and develop our understanding of ancient apocalyptic literature, its emergence, character, and functions. AMRAM employs transdisciplinary approaches, combining paleographical and linguistic methods, literary and rhetorical analyses, methods from cognitive science, and digital humanities. The research team of AMRAM comprises the PI, a second senior scholar, two postdocs, and the PhD fellow.
The closing date for applications is 15 April 2021 at 23:59 CET.
