Post-doctoral Research Position: political ecologies of water infrastructure


The EPA-funded research project WISDOM (Group Water Schemes: Community Infrastructure for Sustainable Development) based in the Department of Geography, Trinity College Dublin, is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow (Post-Doctoral Researcher) working in the fields of political ecology and/or science and technology studies, preferably with a research interest in the core themes of water and/or infrastructure.

This is the second of two post-doctoral research positions connected to this project. Job details here on our TCD vacancies page and here in PDF.

The research project is based in Ireland and looks at Group Water Schemes (rural, community-managed water infrastructures). While Group Water Schemes are often understood as a minor, even residual component of Ireland’s water system, this project approaches them as potentially important sites for re-thinking key questions relating to the state, modernity, infrastructure and the hydro-social cycle (and thus relates to a broad body of infrastructure-related literature coming from political ecology, science and technology studies, and anthropology in recent years).

The position starts on 1st September and closing date for applications is 22nd June
