Hi,

I am completing my PhD in Global Studies in Germany.
I would like to do a post doc in a more traditional field, like political science or history, but can I do this with a PhD in global studies. My thesis has both an historical and contemporary element in it.
Thank you so much for your replies.

The title of your degree dosnt really matter.  What matters is if you can find a PI that wants to hire you, or a granting agency that is willing to fund you.  Regardless, if your background and qualifications line up well with the requirements of the position the title on your degree wont matter.
