Post-Doc Positions on a Narrative Science Project

 

Applications are invited for 3 Post-Docs to work on the EU-funded project
Narrative Science under the direction of the principal investigator,
Professor Mary S. Morgan at the London School of Economics.  This team
project will investigate how, when, and why scientists use narratives to
explain their work within their own communities.  Each researcher will
develop their own case materials within the overall project, working - by
agreement with the project leader - on particular topics and fields of
science past and present.

 

It is expected that candidates will have a PhD in history of science, or a
closely related field (including narrative studies, science communication,
etc) provided you have some experience of historical research work; or you
must have an equivalent track record of independent and original research. 

 

As part of their application, candidates are asked to write a brief
response to the larger project summary, found here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/economicHistory/Research/Home.aspx

 

The job advert is found here (which links to further details and tells you
how to apply):  http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/BBN614/research-officers-x-3/
 The closing date is June 22nd. 

 

There will shortly also be an advert for a Research Fellow to help run the
project, and to curate a web-based ‘library’ of case studies in
narrative science.

Candidates are welcome to apply to both.

 

Please circulate onwards.  Thank you.
