PhD studentship: history of chemistry

The History of Science Unit of the University of Regensburg announces a PhD studentship for research on: Research Style and Teaching Practice in Robert W. Bunsen’s Heidelberg Laboratory.

Research focus is on early physical chemistry, instrumentation, and teaching methods. The project requires archival research. A detailed research plan is available.
