ENGAGING VULNERABILITY is a multidisciplinary research program funded for ten years (2015-2025) by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) with support from the Vice-Chancellor’s strategic funds, and the Faculty of Arts. The goal of the program is to conduct empirical research and develop perspectives that engage vulnerability as a productive resource rather than a lack or privation.

The ENGAGING VULNERABILITY research program is now seeking a post-doc, 100%, from September 1, 2017 – August 31, 2019. The successful applicant is expected to conduct research that contributes to and develops the issues that are the focus of the EV program.

The research field is open, and may be in the humanities, social sciences and/or the natural sciences. Research can focus on people, animals, the environment and/or it can be about phenomena or theoretical perspectives that extend and deepen the way we might think about vulnerability in new ways.

You are welcome to submit your application no later than November 30, 2016.
