2 PhD vacancies in art-science approach to the development of offshore wind power, CIRED-PACTE, France


Dear all,

*Apologies for cross-posting*

At CIRED (Paris) and PACTE (Grenoble), French CNRS research units, we 
have two 3-year vacancy for PhD candidates in social science to work on 
the development of offshore wind power in France and the associated 
changes in marine environments, territories and landscapes.

These PhD positions are part of a major interdisciplinary research 
project (“Following offshore wind power”) connecting together academics 
from social and non-social sciences, and artists, funded by the French 
energy agency (Ademe), and co-coordinated by Alain Nadaï (CIRED) and 
Olivier Labussière (PACTE).

Both PhD students will work within an art-science approach in order to 
open up to local actors the mechanism of production of science on 
contested issues, while ethnographing and problematising, on this 
occasion, the encounter between knowledge (profane, scientific) and the 
performativity of art in constructing this encounter (science, society).

Both PhDs will experiment with forms of writing and valorisation to 
generate new understandings and debates around these issues.

• The first PhD will focus on emerging issues at the crossroads of 
questions of /species, environment and uses of the sea/, in order to 
draw out a more systemic analysis of the effects of offshore wind power.

• The second PhD will focus on the /sensitive relationship to landscape 
in the vicinity of wind farms/, which today remain confined to the 
individual or the intimate, on the fringes of institutions.

Application: send CV and letter to 

The deadline for applications is December 15^th .

Best wishes,

Olivier Labussière & Alain Nadaï
