Applications are invited for two 2-year Postdoctoral Research Positions at the AxPo Observatory of Market Society Polarization at Sciences Po in Paris, France, starting on 1 September 2023.
The purpose of AxPo’s research program is to bring together research in sociology, political science, and economics on multiple forms of polarization which may contribute to the fragmentation of democratic market societies. AxPo will notably focus on socio-economical and socio-political polarizations, and their interrelations.
Qualified candidates will have a background in Sociology, Political Science, Economics, or in related disciplines, i.e. History, Geography, etc.
The annual gross salary will be 40,400 €. Employment in France guarantees full access to healthcare and other social security benefits.
To be eligible, candidates must have defended – or be due to defend – their PhD between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2023. Sciences Po’s working languages are English and French, and speaking French is not a requirement for the position.
The postdoctoral researchers will be expected to undertake research within AxPo’s academic area, broadly defined. Postdoctoral researchers will participate in all academic activities organized by both AxPo Observatory and their host research center in Sciences Po: research seminars, workshops, conferences, etc., and will have the opportunity to organize meetings and workshops on subjects related to their own research.
Application deadline: January 31st, 2023
