Open position: 4 year PhD in Technoscience, Materiality, & Digital Cultures at the University of Vienna

— Apologies for cross posting —

We are looking for someone to take up a 4 year position as a PhD student (a 30 hour per week prae-doc university assistant, in the Austrian system), supervised by me (Sarah Davies ) at the Department of Science and Technology Studies, University of Vienna . Your planned research should fall under the theme ’Technosciences, materiality, and digital cultures’, and should explore aspects of the digital as material practice in contexts where technoscience is created or negotiated. The anticipated start date is October 2024, and you must have a completed Masters degree by this point. The deadline for applications is 30th April.

The successful candidate will work on a PhD dissertation, participate in research activities of the group and department, and contribute to the organisation of the department and its teaching. For further details see the full job advertisement , which also explains how to apply (requested material includes a CV, motivation letter, 3-5 page outline of your proposed project, and 5 key references that you think should be covered in an introductory STS course).

I believe that we offer a healthy and supportive research culture, a lively and international STS environment, and a commitment to supervision that helps you realise your research. Please feel free to contact me with any informal enquiries (though apologies in advance that I am travelling until 14th April, and may be slow in responding).

Please circulate to any colleagues or students who may be interested in working with us! Sarah
