Inanna Hamtati-Ataya reports on two postdoctoral fellowship opportunities for an ERC-funded project she is leading at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), University of Cambridge:
The project aims to offer a novel understanding and theorisation of ‘the global’ by examining the constitution and transformation of global political structures from the anthropological perspective of humankind’s epistemic development. Researchers from across the social sciences and humanities who are interested in investigating the formation and diffusion of knowledge are invited to apply. The researchers will contribute 50% of their time to ARTEFACT, 10% to the activities of the newly established Centre for Global Knowledge Studies (GloKnoS) and 40% to their own research project.
All the details on the vacancies, application procedure and project are available here: http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/about/vacancies. The application deadline is 9 March 2018; interviews of shortlisted candidates will be held on 24 April. For any queries please contact Dr. Hamati-Ataya (firstname.lastname@example.org).
