PhD position Knowledge Infrastructures (Campus Fryslan)

Dear Colleagues,

There is a call for applications for a PhD position Knowledge
Infrastructures for Sustainability
(1.0 FTE) (219143). This is a great
opportunity to join a dynamic group at Campus Fryslan, the new
cross-discipinary faculty of the University of Groningen.

Knowledge infrastructures are essential to how we define and establish
urgency around global issues and the Sustainable Development Goals. Within
Campus Fryslân, the group on Knowledge Infrastructures for Sustainability
investigates how different actors use such infrastructures to know and
intervene responsibly. At the heart of this research are questions about
how values and practices are reinforced by current knowledge
infrastructures, which adaptations are needed to develop more responsible
and sustainable practices based on reliable and meaningful knowledge, and
how to make complex, multi-dimensional data tractable.

Candidates who want to contribute to such developments can apply for the
position until 11 April. The project will involve a range of methods,
including ethnographic fieldwork and will be linked to the Data Research
Centre of Campus Fryslan. PhD training will be provided by Campus Fryslan
and WTMC. For more details, see the website of the University of Groningen.
Questions can be addressed to Anne Beaulieu (
