Job Announcement: Einstein Papers

The Einstein Papers Project is engaged in one of the most ambitious scholarly publishing ventures undertaken in the history of science. The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein provides the first complete picture of Einstein’s massive written legacy. The series now covers Einstein’s life and work up to his 48th birthday. It presents, as annotated full text, 484 writings by Einstein and 3,450 letters written by and to him. An additional 3,441 documents appear in abstract.

Online Archives: You can access the database (http://www.alberteinstein.info/index.html) of 90,000+ records of all known Einstein manuscripts and correspondence and also search the full text of 2,000 digitized items.

A position of Assistant or Associate Editor is open for the Einstein Project at California Institue of Technology. The salary and initial appointment as Assistant Editor or Associate Editor may be made at the research staff, postdoctoral scholar, or research assistant professor level, dependent on the final candidate’s qualifications.

Preference would be given to candidates with expertise in the history and/or philosophy of 20th century physics or physical sciences, able to address Einstein’s scientific papers and correspondence for the period 1928-1932. Very good reading knowledge of written German is required. A Ph.D. degree in a pertinent field is strongly desired (history/philosophy of modern physics; physics; modern German history).
