PhD positions@University of Padova Pastis Research Unit
We are pleased to share with you the call for PhD positions in Social
Sciences (Curriculum in Sociology) in the field of Science and Technology
Studies & Media Studies at the University of Padova (Italy).
The research unit PaSTIS (Padova
Science, Technology and Innovations Studies) will host the PhD candidate
for three years. PaSTIS is the major STS center in Italy with about 20
staff members, including several PhD students, offering a vibrant and
exciting environment for outstanding PhD candidates keen to undertake an
academic international career in STS.
The PhD candidate interested in the STS field is expected to propose a
project related to the analysis of technoscientific issues, with the aim of
disentangling the relationship between scientific, technical, social and
cultural elements, including a view about social implications, expectations
and future scenarios.
The research project should be theoretically grounded in the field of
Science and Technology Studies (STS) with no restriction about social
science-based methods and research techniques: any STS approach is welcome.
The PhD candidate will be enrolled in the PhD programme in Social Sciences
https://socialsciences.fisppa.unipd.it/, which includes the first year of
dedicated training in social sciences and STS.
