CfA: 2 postdoctoral positions in the project „Moving Data – Moving People“, IT University of Copenhagen & Aalborg University, 100%, 30 months (Deadline: 2021-08-01)


The project has two postdoctoral positions available, each for 30 months.

The postdocs will be key contributors to the program of research into the Social Credit System in China, carrying out independent research and working closely with the project team. This research is expected to advance anthropological studies of state digitalization projects worldwide, develop a culturally specific understanding of the notion of digitalized trust, and renew the literature on internal migration in China. The postdoctoral research projects will constitute a significant component of the overall project, and while the overall emphases of the research are determined by the project, the postdocs will have considerable freedom through the subprojects in shaping how the research objectives are realized. In addition to conducting fieldwork, the postdocs are expected to contribute to the shared project, publish independently, as well as together with other project team members, present research papers at international workshops and conferences, contribute to popular dissemination of the research results, and contribute to project organization and administration through workshop and conference coordination.
