Post-doctoral postion STS/care and ageing at Open Universiteit

Dear colleagues, We offer an exciting 2-year opportunity for a post-doctoral researcher with previous experience in Science and Technology Studies (STS) in relation to care and ageing in my research group at The Open University of The Netherlands.

It will be your primary tasks to explore how trust is created for digital technologies in (home) care settings. We are especially interested in how different values and valuations among caregivers, older people, technology provides, etc. constitute trust or distrust in practices of caring. To this end, you will be collaborating with a network of care organisations in the region of Zuid-Limburg using ethnographic methods, co-creation, and participatory action research. You will also have the opportunity to experiment with different designs for knowledge dissemination workshops, where we explicitly look for innovative forms of multimodal scholarly output.

Application deadline is 26 February 2024. Please circulate widely.

Best wishes Alex
