Nuevas becas de PhD y post doc para estudiar mercados

¿Interesados en los estudios sociales de los mercados? Dos nuevos llamados para llenar posiciones: en Sociology Goldsmtihs buscan post-docs para el proyecto dirigido por Daniel Neyland: Market-Based Initiatives as Solutions to Techno-Scientific Problems (MISTS); en Warwick, Politics and International Studies,  buscan un estudiante de PhD para trabajar en el proyecto de Matthew Watson sobre el concepto del mercado.

We have a research position available in Sociology at Goldsmiths, working on a new ERC funded programme (MISTS) which asks: Can Markets Solve Problems? The programme will draw together ideas from the recent Science and Technology Studies (STS) interest in markets, value and values, with long standing debates in the more policy oriented aspects of STS focused on problems and solutions. The research will involve ethnographic engagement with four fields in which markets have come to prominence in discussions of: security, health, the environment and education.

The programme will make available four research positions, one in each field. The first post will be focused on security and, in particular, attempts to build a market for ‘ethical’ security technologies.

The post will be full-time and last for 24 months initially (with the possibility of application for follow-on sub-projects). The successful applicant will become part of a vibrant community of STS researchers and sociologists. The deadline for applications is: 8th May, 2013.

Subsequent 2 year posts will be made available to research markets, problems and solutions in: health (2014), the environment (2015) and education (2016).

The Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick is looking to appoint an ESRC-funded PhD student to work on Matthew Watson’s Professorial Fellowship project on the concept of ‘the market’. The studentship is likely to be of particular interest to students with a background in IPE and/or the history of ideas. The award will begin in October 2013 and will last for three years. Full details – including eligibility and deadline – are available on the departmental website:

Please pass on to students who are likely to be interested, although usual ESRC eligibility restrictions do apply.
