The Department of Thematic Studies was the first in Sweden to offer an academic setting for thematically organised, interdisciplinary, socially relevant research. We combine strong research with undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and courses, often in collaboration with actors outside the university. Our point of departure is a critical, reflective approach, and we seek to develop new ways of understanding established social phenomena, in order to benefit both scientific and social development.

Postdoc in Technology and Social Change
formally based at Department of Thematic Studies

Technology and Social Change 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 and economy. Third cycle and first cycle studies specialising in issues of technology and social change are carried out at the department.

Duties
A Postdoc will essentially carry out research. The position may also involve teaching, but during no more than a fifth of work time.

The selected candidate for this position will work with the project “Conceiving and performing pre-conception care,” which studies the case of preconception carrier screening in the Netherlands. Through this screening, couples can be screened for an increased risk of having a child with one of circa 50 recessively inherited conditions. The project involves interviews with couples who have been offered this screening, and health care personnel, in the Netherlands.

The project is a part of the research program “A Feminist Approach to Medical Screening” financed by the Swedish Research Foundation. This program examines normative aspects of medical screening with a focus on what screening programs mean for the screened subjects. It cross-pollinates feminist phenomenology/phenomenology of medicine and feminist science studies/STS, combining the analysis of lived bodily experiences, normality and risk (the contribution from within feminist phenomenology and phenomenology of medicine) with a norm critical take on the co-construction of technological, socio-political, economic and ethical dimensions when screening technology is developed and used (the contribution from within feminist science studies and STS). The selected candidate will be expected to work independently as well as together with other researchers in the research team.

The applicant shall have documented skills in the subject of philosophy. Documented skills in empirical philosophy, i.e. combinations of empirical and philosophical work, is also required.

Documented skills in phenomenology of medicine, feminist theory, and science and technology studies are of particular merit.

It is a requirement for this position that the applicant has a good ability to express her- or himself in spoken and written English and Dutch.

Qualifications
The position requires a doctorate or an equivalent degree from a foreign university. The doctorate shall have been obtained no longer than three years before the expiration date of the application.

Appointment time
A Postdoc is appointed until further notice, but for no longer than two years. The appointment can be renewed if there are special reasons.

Starting date
By agreement.

Salary

Equal opportunities
A majority of our postdoc’s withinthe Department of Thematic Studies are women, which is why precedence will be given to men in cases where qualifications are deemed otherwise equivalent.

In the event of a discrepancy between the English translation of the job announcement and the Swedish original, the Swedish version shall take precedent.
