Social Science/Humanities Postdoctoral Research Positions Available
at UCSB Center for Nanotechnology in Society

The National Science Foundation Center for Nanotechnology in Society
at the University of California, Santa Barbara has immediate openings
for 1-2 postdoctoral research positions for scholars interested in
societal aspects of emerging technologies, with a particular focus on
nanotechnology. Successful candidates will contribute to one of three
collaborative Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) addressing:
1) the historical context of nanoscience and technology;
2) the effects of nanotech R&D and policy on economic development in the global
economy, with regional focus on East Asia and Latin America; or
3) multiple party risk perception and public deliberation in US, Europe
and Asia.

Applicants may either propose a new project within the scope of the IRG or, in
some instances, apply to join an ongoing project. See cns.ucsb.edu for further
information about CNS-UCSB activities and application procedures.
