Technosciences, Materiality, and Digital Cultures: Post-doc & Pre-doc positions at the University of Vienna

 The Department of Science and Technology Studies at the University of Vienna is currently recruiting for one post-doc (6 years) and one pre-doc (4 year PhD) position! These posts will join a group focusing on STS research in Technosciences, Materiality, and Digital Cultures. We are looking for scholars whose research explores interactions between technoscience and digitisation inside universities, research organisations, and other spaces and practices of knowledge production. Their interests may include, but are not limited to:

  • The relation between digitisation and the contemporary conditions of academic labour;
  • Digitisation within scientific knowledge production, including studies of data deluges, the co-production of digital technologies and academic work, and mundane use of digital tools;
  • Relations between (the rise of) digital tools and scientific responsibility and research integrity;
  • The co-production of digitisation and epistemic practice.
For the post-doc position, the ability to teach in German is a strong advantage. Full details of the posts and the application process are available at the links above. Questions about the positions should be directed to me at the email address Sara R Davies. Applications should be submitted by 30 September 2020
