Job offer: research associate (65%, doctoral candidate) “Doing Mini-pub­lics: Trans­lo­c­al­iz­ing Polit­ics“

The Department of Sociology at TU Berlin announces the position of one of two research associates in the project “Doing mini-publics: translocalization of politics”. It is a part-time position, allowing parallel work for a doctorate.

The project is part of a collaborative research centre on the “Re-figuration of spaces”. It investigates the production and circulation of knowledge about politics, focusing on a specific method of public participation: “deliberative mini-publics”. Does the worldwide circulation of this knowledge go along with the constitution of a trans-local space of political practice? How is this space being shaped? We look forward to receive applications, especially from STS and practice researchers who enjoy travelling and have some experience in fieldwork. Please forward to potentially interested people.

Applications can be handed in until 23 November 2018. The announcement can be found here  (also in German: More information on the project can be found here
