Please circulate widely to your network to identify potential candidates!

Two postdocs and one PhD Fellow at University of Stavanger, Norway

 I have just advertised two postdocs (two year position) and one PhD fellow (three year position) in environmental history on my new envirotech project “Histories of animals, technological infrastructure, and making more-than-human homes in the modern age” (AtHome), which is funded by the Research Council of Norway and hosted at the University of Stavanger, Norway.
The two postdoctoral fellows are tied to a work package on city birds. One postdoc will focus on technologies and infrastructures that invite animals to be close to people, such as birdhouses and birdfeeders. The other postdoc will focus on technologies and infrastructures intended to keep animals out, such as building spikes, nets and predator kites. While birds must be a central component of the project, the postdoc can choose to include other urban animals as well. There is no geographical restriction. The project can focus on any history within the modern age (from 1800 to today), but note that it must be a historical project. In the project proposal, the candidate should indicate which subproject (inviting in or excluding) they are interested in; it is possible to indicate an interest in both.
The PhD Fellow will be part of the work package on artificial reefs as a technological infrastructure that animals use as homes. The PhD Fellow will identify and analyse debates about artificial reefs made of various materials such as concrete, tires, and subway cars in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In the project proposal (maximum 3 pages), the candidate should outline how the project will be undertaken, with a focus on the geographical area, time period, actors, artificial reef type(s), archives, and other source material that might be used in the PhD thesis.
The deadline for application is November 28, 2021. The anticipated start date for the positions is April 1, 2022 (although this can be negotiated for later in 2022 if necessary).
Please pass on these job ads to any relevant candidates in your networks.

Projet ANR TRANSENVIR – Offre de post-doctorat en histoire contemporaine

Niveau requis : thèse obligatoire

Type de contrat : contrat à durée déterminée. Durée : 24 mois

Début souhaité : 1er septembre 2017

Quotité : 100 %

Rémunération : 2515 € brut mensuel

Contexte :

Le/la chercheur.e en post-doctorat travaillera au sein du LARHRA-UMR 5190  dans le cadre du projet TRANSENVIR, Approche historique de la « TRANSition ENVIRonnementale » : innovations politiques et sociales face aux risques environnementaux en milieu urbain (années 1950-années 2000) (  ).

Coordonné par Stéphane Frioux, maître de conférences à l’Université Lumière Lyon 2, et financé par l’appel à Projets générique 2016 de l’ANR, le projet a l’ambition de proposer un ensemble de clés de compréhension de la place occupée par les villes françaises dans la montée, l’institutionnalisation et la reconfiguration de politiques environnementales. La question sera abordée par le prisme du risque (conçu au sens large), et par un travail de terrain sur les agglomérations de Lyon et de Grenoble, des années 1950 aux années 2000.

Les questions abordées et étudiées par les membres de l’équipe portent sur la qualité de l’eau et toutes les formes de risques liés à l’eau, sur la qualité de l’air et les pollutions atmosphériques, sur le problème du bruit, de la relation habitat/santé, notamment dans les nouvelles constructions de la période, de type grands ensemble, et enfin de l’interface entre environnement de travail/usine et environnement urbain. Une attention particulière est accordée à étudier les différents acteurs qui interviennent et se mobilisent, des élus jusqu’aux associations militantes et aux syndicats. Sur le plan géographique, les espaces périurbains sont inclus dans l’enquête, qui ne veut pas se cantonner aux villes-centres des agglomérations.

Le projet rassemble 8 chercheurs, de plusieurs disciplines et de plusieurs laboratoires de recherche.

Activités prévues :

Recherche en archives, bibliothèques, et par enquête orale. Une partie des fonds a déjà fait l’objet d’un inventaire au printemps 2017, afin que le/la post-doc puisse s‘approprier très vite le terrain d’étude et choisir les objets prioritaires pour débuter l’enquête (et coordonner ses recherches avec les autres chercheurs).

Préparation du travail préalable pour la production de rapports de recherche écrits, la diffusion des résultats du projet et l’organisation des activités liées à la valorisation de ces résultats (par exemple à travers l’organisation et le suivi scientifique et administratif de journées d’étude et de colloques).

Participation active à des séminaires, colloques, et autres manifestations organisées par le projet TRANSENVIR.

– Participation à la mise en place et à l’alimentation du site internet du projet TRANSENVIR.

Expériences et compétences requises :

– Diplôme de Doctorat en histoire contemporaine

Sur les thématiques « Environnement » et « Risques », capacité à travailler en équipe pluridisciplinaire et à dialoguer avec la géographie, l’aménagement et la science politique, en premier lieu, ainsi qu’à emprunter à des cadres conceptuels différents.

– Disponibilité à effectuer des recherches dans différentes bibliothèques et archives locales, régionales et nationales (Lyon, Grenoble, Paris, …). Pour cela, une résidence pendant la durée du contrat, dans la région Rhône-Alpes à proximité de Lyon ou de Grenoble, est impérative.

– Bonne connaissance de l’anglais.


Modalités de candidature : envoyer par e-mail à l’adresse ci-dessous (Stéphane Frioux)


1 – une lettre de motivation (5000 à 10 000 signes) sous forme de proposition de contribution au projet ANR TRANSENVIR. Il n’est pas attendu de connaître nécessairement le terrain lyonnais ou grenoblois, mais, à partir des grands axes du projet (3 axes détaillés sur la page ), de proposer une contribution originale, qui pourra compléter les recherches à effectuer sur les corpus déjà pré-définis par l’équipe.

2 – un CV détaillé comprenant la liste des publications

3 – le rapport de soutenance

4 – une publication jugée significative et susceptible d’intéresser l’équipe du projet


Date limite pour l’envoi des dossiers : 14 juin 2017


Contact :

Stéphane Frioux ( ; LARHRA-Institut des Sciences de l’Homme 14, avenue Berthelot, 69363 Lyon Cedex 07)


Le(s) candidat.e(s) présélectionné.e(s) seront éventuellement convié.es à un entretien, qui pourra se faire par visioconférence. La sélection sera annoncée avant le 13 juillet 2017

Twelve Funded Doctoral Fellowships in Environmental Humanities in Europe: Leeds, Munich, Stockholm

(Includes inter alia these topics, flooding and drought; climate change and risk; and waste, environmental health, and environmental justice, and obviously env history)

The Environmental Humanities for a Concerned Europe research group is now seeking applicants for twelve PhD/doctoral researchers:

Four PhD fellows at the Environmental Humanities Research Group at the University of Leeds (deadline: May 1, 2015)

Four doctoral fellows at the Rachel Carson Center at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and Deutsches Museum (deadline: May 15, 2015)

Four PhD fellows at the Environmental Humanities Lab at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (deadline: April 20, 2015)

These are fully-funded positions beginning in October 2015 to participate in a jointly-organized European program with events and training hosted by each of the partners for all twelve researchers.

Environmental Humanities for a Concerned Europe (ENHANCE) is a Marie Curie European Innovative Training Network (ITN) providing multidisciplinary doctoral training in Environmental Humanities. The four main partners are the University of Leeds (UK), the Environmental Humanities Lab at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society at Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich, Germany, and the Deutsches Museum, Munich.

The main aims of the network are to provide its Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs)–12 in total across the four participating institutions–with the academic and complementary skills training needed to place them at the forefront of a new generation of Environmental Humanities research; to lay down the foundation for a structured, sustainable approach to doctoral training in Environmental Humanities at EU level; and to provide potential employment for ESRs in a wide range of careers including environmental consultancy, risk assessment, research and development, green business management, sustainable technologies media and communications, and not-for-profit work (environmental and wildlife NGOs).

Research and training will concentrate on three major areas–natural disasters and cultures of risk, history of science and technology, and environmental ethics–and will address a series of core interlocking issues: wilderness and conservation; flooding and drought; climate change and risk; and waste, environmental health, and environmental justice.

All ESRs will be expected to work towards a doctoral degree in humanities with the aim of completing this within the fixed term of their appointment. They will also be expected to work closely with other ESRs, both at their own and at other participating institutions; to go on secondment at one or more of the ITN’s five intersectoral Associated Partners; and to link their research work with key European environmental policies including the Climate Change Programme, the European Sustainable Development Strategy, the Water Framework Directive, and Natura 2000, e.g. by examining the social, cultural, and ethical factors that lie behind such major areas of international concern as water shortage, species extinction, and global climate change.
