Subject: JOBS B: RA (Doc) Position at the Centre for Digital Cultures (Lueneburg, Germany)

The “CDC Research Lab” at Leuphana University Lueneburg is seeking to appoint one research associate at doctoral level (EG 13 TV-L, 75% for three years), starting from 1. September 2013. 

The new CDC Research Lab is situated in the larger, transdisciplinary, cross-faculty “Centre for Digital Cultures” (CDC), which – with its more than 90 international researchers – bundles research and development activities within digital media at Leuphana University. The CDC Research Lab is funded by the “Niedersaechsisches Vorab” program, and will host international fellows as well as younger researchers, who work on a research program consisting of four thematic fields: (a) questions of the technological conditions of digital cultures, (b) new forms of cooperation, collectivity and organisation, (c) shifts in political participation and affective control, as well as (d) methodological problems and experiments in the research of digital cultures. 

The doctoral project of the applicant should be located within the thematic field (b): Digital cultures confront us with new and complex phenomena of sociality, be it in relation to cooperation, collectivity or organisation. Doctoral projects could, for example, situate themselves in the border area between media studies or software studies on the one hand and social anthropology, organisation theory, or sociology on the other. Alternative interpretations of the thematic field (b) are equally welcome.

Your tasks:
* Independent work on a doctoral project, which contributes clearly to the thematic field of “re-thinking sociality” (= field b)
* Preparation and support of the activities of the CDC Research Lab
* Preparation and discussion of research literature
* Development of own projects and thematic foci
* Conceptual involvement in the organisation of presentations, reading groups and workshops
* There is no requirement to teach, but own teaching activities are possible

Requirements:
* Completed masters degree or equivalent with a clear relation to of the thematic fields of the CDC Research Lab.
* Excellent proposed doctoral project fitting the thematic fields of the CDC Research Lab 
* Familiarity with current methods of the appropriate thematic field
* Preparedness to enrol for the doctoral programme at Leuphana University Lueneburg and presence at the CDC Research Lab in Lueneburg
