New PhD position at ISS: Valuing nature in the circular economy-
Applications are invited for an ‘Early Stage Researcher’ (ESR) to pursue a PhD at the International Institute of Social Studies on the political ecology/economy of value within the context of scholarly debates on and practical efforts towards the creation of a ‘circular economy’. While the ESR will be based within the EU-funded Realising the Transition to the Circular Economy (ReTraCE) project, the successful candidate will be expected to develop her/his own doctoral research agenda.
Applicants are encouraged to develop their proposals with a view to articulating a theoretically-grounded critique of the valuation of nature within the context of the ‘circular economy’ in particular and the Anthropocene in general. Such a critique would be expected to pay particular attention to the justice and equity implications of such valuation mechanisms.
