Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship – “Airborne: Pollution, Climate Change, and Visions of Sustainability in China”
September 25, 2014 - 00:00
A position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available at the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages within the research project “Airborne: Pollution, Climate Change, and Visions of Sustainability in China”.
Airborne is an interdisciplinary and international research project that studies how people’s experiences and imaginaries of the impact of air pollution transform into new visions of sustainability and creative forms of action in China. Airborne will help answer the question of how, and to which extent, communist authorities, scientists, rural/urban inhabitants, and environmental organizations interact in responding to the inseparable risks of air pollution in China and global climate change. In three interdisciplinary case studies we integrate issues of gender, class, and rural-urban distinctions into the study of air pollution: Case 1: The Interface between Air Pollution Science and People; Case 2: Central PM Pollution Policy Goes Local; Case 3: The Class and Gender of Individual Air Pollution Exposure
The position is available for a 2-year period starting January 2015.
Application deadline: 25. September
