Sciences Po is launching a call for applications for 10 postdoctoral fellowships as part of the Bruno Latour Fund, a postdoctoral research program on environmental and climate transformations.
This program aims to host at Sciences Po Paris campus, young social scientists wishing to build a collective and multidisciplinary initiative on how ecological and climate crises are reshaping the contemporary economic, social, legal and political order, and how they invite us to reconsider our history.

These postdoctoral contracts, lasting 36 months, will be filled in two recruitment waves:

  • 4 fellowships, Autumn 2022, to start from March 1st, 2023: applications to be sent no later than December 1st, 2022.
  • 6 fellowships, Spring 2023, for a start in autumn 2023 (schedule to be confirmed).

The remuneration is 3.400 € gross per month.
Successful candidates will be assigned to one of Sciences Po's research centers, including the CRIS, according to their wishes and with the agreement of the center. They will thus benefit from its working environment.

Each candidate will receive a personal research fund of 5,000 € for the duration of his/her contract.

All those who hold a doctorate on the date of application and who have defended their thesis within the four
preceding years are eligible (see exception).

Candidates will be selected on the basis of their scientific merit, their ability to mobilize trans-disciplinary interest,
and their dynamic involvement in Sciences Po's research centers.

Through their research, postdoctoral fellows will deepen and renew existing initiatives within Sciences Po and outreach programs developed in partnership with Université Paris Cité (Earth politics center, environmental axis and Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies - LIEPP). They will contribute to the structuring of an interdisciplinary environmental research workshop (AIRE) group.
