Visiting research fellowships, Linköping University, urban and regional climate transition

sorry for cross-postings

Visiting Research Fellowships, 2 weeks 2 months, 2025 Linkping University, Tema T Technology and Social Change, Sweden Travel and accommodation provided Application deadline: 30 September 2024

Dear colleagues,

After a very successful first round of fellowships we would like to announce a new call for visiting research fellows. We would like to give both junior and senior researchers the opportunity to stay between two weeks and two months at our department and engage with our vibrant interdisciplinary research environment. We will provide an apartment as well as research infrastructure (work place, IT, library) for this time and can cover the travel to and from Linkping. Please find more information in the attached leaflet.

We are especially looking for researchers with a link to topics of urban and regional climate transitions which is one of the research fields within Tema T.

Examples of topics of interest are:

  • the role of urban and regional planning in sustainability transitions; new tools and approaches for strategic and transformative planning; new roles for planners
  • social transformation and the role of knowledge and politics
  • the governance of socio-technical change; building capacities for transformation
  • the role of social movements, grassroots innovations or energy communities
  • new instruments and strategies for urban transformative change - socio-technical experiments, system demonstrators, reflexive monitoring and evaluation, mission-oriented innovation policies
  • critical analysis of the politics of transition; conflict, controversy and friction in transition processes; questions of justice, equality, democracy and marginalisation in sustainability transitions

Your workplace will be at the Division of Technology and Social Change at Linkping University. Tema T is a nationally and internationally leading environment for research and education in how people create and use technology, and how technological change is interwoven with cultural patterns, everyday life, politics, ethics and economy. The fellowship is coupled to the research group 'STRIPE - Socio-technical research of infrastructures, politics and the environment.

If you are interested, please send us an email with your preferred period of stay to and attach a CV and expression of interest, including plans for your stay, of up to three pages.

The application deadline for the coming calendar year 2025 is 30 September

  1. However, later applications are also accepted on a rolling basis pending on the availability of funding.

We are looking forward to receiving your expressions of interest! Wed also be grateful if you could pass this information on to other potentially interested persons.

With best regards, Harald Rohracher
