Two post doctoral positions for a joint ESRC-ANR project will be available
from ~October 2011 for 24 months, one at SPRU (University of Sussex,
Brighton), and one in Latts (Paris-Est University, Paris-Marne La Vallée)
for the project Emergence & institutionalisation of epistemic communities in
science-based technologies.
http://www.esrc.ac.uk/my-esrc/grants/RES-360-25-0076/read

This project aims to combine various analytical dimensions to study the
formation of epistemic communities in emergent technologies: knowledge
dynamics, normativities (social values, expectations), and
institutionalisation. As a result, the research involves diverse
methodological approaches, including:
• Mapping research dynamics using publications, patents and press data
• Interviews of key actors on field dynamics, values, expectations
• Survey techniques for exploring wider communities 
This work will be performed through six case studies of emergent
technologies.

Competences required: 
• Background in innovation studies or management,  STS, or related
(flexible)
• Familiarity with quantitative data manipulation and visualisation
(expected) 
• Training in interviewing (plus)
• Interest in mixing / articulating quantitative and qualitative analyses

Two post doctoral positions :
• one in Brighton (SPRU), one in Paris-Marne La Vallée (LATTS),
• two years with about six months in the partner location
• up to 31 K£/year-32 KEuros/year (before tax) (abour 28KEuros/year for
first postdoc) 

Applications should be sent by April 15th by e-mail including:
• Extended CV
• Two recommendation letters
• One article or conference paper

Submission are to be made to Aurelie Delemarle from LATTS
([log in to unmask]) and Ismael Rafols from SPRU ([log in to unmask]),
indicating preference for location (i.e. Brighton or Paris). Candidates will
be asked to hold interviews in early-mid May in Brighton and/or Paris.
Results will be announced by the end of May.

SPRU (Science and Technology Policy Research) is a world-leading department
at the University of Sussex where research and high-level policy advice are
combined with postgraduate teaching in science, technology, and innovation
policy and management. Its highly interdisciplinary faculty addresses the
analysis of the rate and direction of scientific change and innovation, the
promotion and management of innovation, the regulation of technological
risks, the search for effective energy policies and paths to a more
sustainable society. SPRU researchers are prominent participants in debates
concerning biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, nuclear power, climate change,
technology in development and the roles of public and private research
organisations.

LATTS (a French acronym meaning “research group on technology, territories
and societies”), which was founded in 1985, is a joint research group of the
French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS - http://www.cnrs.fr),
the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées (ENPC, a top French engineering
institute under the auspices of the French Ministry of Public Works -
http://www.enpc.fr/) and the University of Marne-la-Vallée
(http://www.univ-mlv.fr). Latts brings together a team of approximately
thirty researchers (in city planning, economics, ergonomics, geography,
management, history, political science and sociology) mainly originating
from these three academic institutions and thirty doctoral candidates. Latts
members carry out research into enterprises, public administration, local
institutions, collective action, territorial dynamics and the related
technical systems. By means of field research, comparative investigations
and conceptual thought processes, this work in the social sciences pursues
multidisciplinary aims: between disciplines, between theory and empirics and
between scientific controversy and public debate.
