Doctoral Program Environment and Society

The Doctoral Program Environment and Society is aimed at graduates from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences who wish to research questions concerning the nature/culture/environment interface. Within the scope of the program, doctoral students acquire the ability to understand the origins and interactions of complex natural and social processes. The doctoral program brings together expertise on environmental research from university and non-university institutions in Munich. The program is based at the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, a joint initiative of LMU Munich and the Deutsches Museum. Its stimulating research environment, intensive supervision, and opportunity to form international networks offer excellent conditions for doctoral students.

Pós-doutorado Bruno Latour – Paris

I am writing to you because Sciences Po is recruiting 8 postdocs in the environmental social sciences on 36 month contracts starting in 2023. This is the second and final round of applications, and for this second round of application we are especially looking forward to  hiring one or two environmental historians. The ideal candidates are those who ask big, fundamental questions about the past in the light of our fraught ecological present (even when they research small places) and can speak to the other social sciences we practice at Sciences Po.

A Comprehensive Guide to Fellowship Applications – resource for PhDs & ECRs

As many of you know, I’m very committed to sharing best research practices and supporting postgraduate researchers and early career scholars in particular in navigating research careers. I’m sharing here a new open access “Comprehensive Guide to Fellowship Applications” that I just completed for the Institute for Academic Development at the University of Edinburgh, and which is available on their Research Staff Hub here with tables for reflective activities that help in writing up an application. It’s based in large part on my experience applying to the Marie Curie scheme and though there’s some Edinburgh-specific material in there, I hope that it may be of help in a wider sense to the RCC community. Feel free to share with your graduate students and wider network. 

To help with the promotion, there’s an accompanying blog post on ‘Benefits of Writing Fellowship Applications‘.

With warm wishes from Scotland, Anna Pilz (former fellow)
