Heinrich Winkelmann Fellowship

Heinreich Winkelmann Fellowship

Heinrich Winkelmann fellowship

Since 2014, the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum has offered two research fellowships per year in the areas of mining history and mining archaeology. The three-month research visits to the DBM offer PhD holders in history and archaeology an excellent opportunity to carry out their own project in mining history, mining archaeology or material science, at a respected research museum belonging to the Leibniz Association. The Heinrich Winkelmann Fellowship comprises three months’ funding, a total of 6000€. Applications from outside Germany are encouraged. Current calls for applications are published on this page.

Regine Müller

Regine Müller, Dr. des. – graduated in 2003 with Magister Artium in Early and Prehistorical Archaeology at the Justus Liebig University of Gießen, with the archaeological analysis of an early medieval graveyard. PhD thesis in Archaeology and History of the Roman Provinces at the University of Frankfurt about the archaeological-archaeometrical analysis of lead finds from the Roman republican site of Sanisera, Menorca, finished in 2014. The thesis was based upon a preliminary material study within the context of the international, European Union sponsored project „Rome’s Conquest of Europe: Military aggression, native response and the European public today“, during 2005/2006.

Subsequent research in provenance studies of lead sling bullets, momentarily focused upon material from Germany and Scotland, in cooperation with Prof. S. Klein (Deutsches Bergbau Museum, Bochum); J. H. Reid (Trimontium Trust, Scotland) and Dr. A. Posluschny (Research Centre Keltenwelt am Glauberg).

Since 2005 volunteer work within the non-profit organization “Archäologie im Gleiberger Land e.V.”; head archaeologist there since 2009, researching and undertaking rescue excavations at the late La Tène period oppidum of the Dünsberg (Biebertal) and its surrounding burial sites.

Extensive experience in field archaeology (excavation and surveying) within research programs, rescue excavations and field schools in Germany, Spain (Menorca) and Portugal, ranging from neolithic to modern times. Sites excavated include settlement sites, military forts, medieval castles, graveyards and urban archaeology.

Since 2015 employed at Sascha Piffko – Archäologische Untersuchungen (SPAU) as archaeologist, working as field director and technician, responsibilities including on-site documentation (digital and analogue), preparing reports, research and lectures (Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen).

Nima Nezafati completed his studies in Tehran. He then carried out doctoral research at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg on ore deposits and ancient mining in western Iran. He completed his thesis in 2006 at the University of Tübingen. Since 2007 Nima Nezafati has lectured on ore deposit geology and archaeometry at the Islamic Azad University (Science and Research Branch) in Tehran.
In 2013/14, Nima Nezafati was involved in the establishment of a programme in archaeometry at the Isfahan University of Art (Iran). In 2014, while holding the Heinrich Winkelmann Fellowship and a scholarship from the Gerda Henkel Foundation, he worked at the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum, at Heidelberg University, and at the Curt-Engelhorn-Centre Archaeometry in Mannheim. Here he carried out research on ore samples and ancient metallurgical remains from Iran.
