DESCRIPTION DU PROJET
The CNRS is recruiting a post-doctoral researcher on the subject of “Public Sentiments” for a period of 12 months starting September 2017 as part of the PSL Research University project “Emodities”, headed by Prof. Eva Illouz (CESSP, EHESS).
The selected post-doctoral researcher will be part of an interdisciplinary network working in collaboration with different member institutions of the PSL Research University. He or she will have the opportunity to exchange with scholars of diverse fields, in France and abroad, to organize workshops, seminars and conferences dedicated to the subject of public sentiments and present his or her work in them.
This research program seeks to understand the role and the formation of public emotions and to study the ways in which technology, media and public space interact and generate public sentiments.
The post-doctoral research project can follow up on one of the two proposed approaches to studying public sentiments, or, alternatively, make an original proposition not presented in this call.
Applications can be submitted in either English or French.
- The candidate must obtain a Phd degree by December 2017.
- Good working knowledge of English is required. While research can be conducted in English, a good command of French is also necessary to be able to work in the French academic environment.
The call is open to candidates of all disciplines.
