Postdoctoral Fellow in Science, Technology and Gender Studies, Full time (40h/week) E13

The Chair for Science, Technology, and Gender Studies (STGS) at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg was established in January 2021.

Being highly interdisciplinary, the chair is unique within the German academic system.

We think across the traditional divide between the social sciences and humanities on one side and the natural sciences and engineering on the other.

Our aim is to identify what has been historically taken for granted as legitimate model of knowledge; make visible the sociocultural and gender aspects of technoscience that are often hidden;

engage in the design process of technoscience in a collaborative and cooperative manner; extend our agenda to science policy and science diplomacy.

Overall, the STGS stands at the crossroad of Science and Technology Studies, Gender Science Studies, Transnational History of Science, and the emerging Diplomatic Studies of Science.


To support and develop the chair’s research projects we seek an outstanding female scholar as
