PhD positions@University of Padova Pastis Research Unit

Dear colleagues,

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, which includes the first year of dedicated training in social sciences and STS.

The call for the academic year 2024/2025 is open to 7 June 2023 and is available here:
