Working within Goldsmiths Department of Sociology you will become part of a vibrant community of Science and Technology Studies (STS) researchers and sociologists. You will be working on an ERC funded programme (MISTS) which asks: “Can Markets Solve Problems?” The project draws together ideas from the recent Science and Technology Studies (STS) interest in markets, value and values, with long standing debates in the more policy oriented aspects of STS focused on problems and solutions. The programme will involve ethnographic engagement with four fields in which markets have come to prominence in discussions of problems and solutions, comprising: privacy, health, the environment and education.

This is the second post funded by MISTS and will be focused on markets and health.

You will have a PhD in Social Science (or equivalent research experience). Knowledge and experience of qualitative research and analysis techniques in the social sciences and experience of negotiating access to project informants and conducting interviews, is essential. The desire to take on increasing responsibility in research planning and collaboration will be desirable. If you have any questions, please contact the principal investigator Daniel Neyland:
