Postdoc in Siegen

I just discovered, in my spam filter, information about a postdoc at the University of Siegen (Germany). It is a thee-year position, to work on the DFG-project, “Nikolaus von Kues als Leser Platons und Aristoteles’: Kritische Edition und Studie der Cusanus-Marginalien”. More information at this link. Good paleographic skills are required. The deadline is tomorrow (Nov. 22, 2022), which is the reason for this special post.
