3 Post-Docs and 1 Research Fellow - Narrative Science

Post-Doc Positions on a Narrative Science Project

Applications are invited for 3 Post-Docs (Research Officers) and 1 Research Fellow to work on the EU-funded project Narrative Science under the direction of the principal investigator, Professor Mary S. Morgan at the London School of Economics.  This team project will investigate how, when, and why scientists use narratives to explain their work within their own communities.  Each Postdoc researcher will develop their own case materials within the overall project, working - by agreement with the project leader - on particular topics and fields of science past and present.  The Research Fellow will help to manage the project, and to curate a web-based ‘library’ of case studies in narrative science.

It is expected that candidates for the postdoc positions will have a PhD in history of science, or a closely related field (including narrative studies, science communication, etc) provided you have some experience of historical research work; or you must have an equivalent track record of independent and original research.  The Research Fellow applicants are expected to have aa PhD and experience of website creation (and could suit someone in digital humanities), but please see further details for both positions

As part of their application, candidates are asked to write a brief response to the larger project summary, found here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/economicHistory/Research/Home.aspx
