*Call for Post-Doctoral Position - May 2014*


Five post-doctoral positions are available at the French Institute 
“Research, Innovation, Society” (Institut Francilien Recherche, 
Innovation, Société - http://ifris.org/en/ ).

IFRIS welcomes STS scholars, historians, sociologists, 
political scientists, anthropologists, economists, people working on 
management sciences or law, and who work on the production, regulation 
and uses of science and technologies in societies. Research may concern 
a variety of issues including public health and biomedicine, 
agricultural sciences and food security, climate change, biodiversity 
and environmental questions, ICT, big data and internet, regimes of 
sciences and innovation in society, as well as theoretical questions.

The post-doc fellows selected will undertake an original research 
project that fits with IFRIS lines of research, notably on the following 

• Innovation processes, notably bottom up, "responsible" or “social” 
• Socio-technical transitions and government/governance of change
• Property rights and commons
• Regulation of techno-scientific activities and their products
• Multi-level governance and scales of government
• Knowledge and the government of the scientific public sphere
• Regimes and institutions of knowledge
• Construction of futures

Post-doc fellows will be hosted by one of the IFRIS Research Groups. We 
highly recommend contacting them as soon as possible since a good
