>Fellowship Programme 2007-2008
>The IAS-STS in Graz, Austria, promotes the interdisciplinary investigation
>of the links and interactions between science, technology and society as
>well as technology assessment and research into the development and
>implementation of socially and environmentally sound technologies.
>The IAS-STS invites researchers to apply for a stay between 1 October 2007
>and 30 June 2008 as
>- Research Fellow (up to nine months) or as
>- Visiting Scholar (shorter period, e.g. a month)
>The IAS-STS offers excellent research infrastructure. Close co-operation
>with researchers at the IFZ (Inter-University Research Centre for
>Technology, Work and Culture; see: www.ifz.tugraz.at), guest lectures,
>workshops and conferences provide an atmosphere of creativity and scholarly
>Furthermore we can offer five grants (up to EUR 1,000 per month) for long-
>term Research Fellows (up to nine months) at the IAS-STS.
>The Fellowship Programme 2007-2008 is dedicated to projects investigating
>the following issues:
>1. Gender - Technology - Environment
>Women with their various interests, competencies and potentials play an
>important part in the process of shaping socially sound and environmentally
>friendly sustainable technologies - as users and consumers or experts.
>Applications should focus on research in the field of women in
>traditionally male fields of engineering, on ways of creating cultures of
>success for women engineers (students, graduates), and on
>masculinity and the culture of engineering.
>2. New Genetics and Modern Biotechnology
>A main focus of the Fellowship Programme lies on research providing a
>critical analysis either of human genetic research or of modern
>biotechnology. Researchers investigating either ethical, legal and social
>aspects of genetic testing or risk policy and wider governance issues
>related to agricultural biotechnology are especially encouraged to apply.
>3. Technology Studies and Sustainability
>Fellowships will be awarded for research projects contributing to the issue
>of sustainable development from the perspective of social studies or the
>history and philosophy of science and technology. Projects should aim at
>socio-economic aspects of environmental technologies or at strategies of
>environmental technology policy, such as user participation, strategic
>niche management or ecological product policy. We encourage both
>theoretical analysis as well as empirical case studies and
>implementation research.
>4. Information and Communication Technologies
>A focus of the fellowship programme will be put on novel developments based
>on information and communication technologies (ICT) from an STS point-of-
>view. Topics like embedded systems, ubiquitous computing or ICT
>applications in traffic systems shall be analysed with respect to their
>wider social and political implications. Further issues of interest are the
>social shaping of new ICT developments and participative approaches to the
>design of ICT systems and applications.
>Applications must be submitted to the IAS-STS by 31 December 2006.
>For application forms and further information:
