Postdoctoral scholar: research on the history of nanotechnology or a combination of nanotechnology and other emerging technologies

The NSF Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS) at the University of
California, Santa Barbara seeks to hire a postdoctoral scholar who will
conduct research on the history of nanotechnology or a combination of
nanotechnology and other emerging technologies (e.g. biotech, materials,
energy).

Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in a relevant field such as the
history of science/technology or science and technology studies.
Applicants should have experience in doing independent research, a
record of communicating research results via publications and
presentations, and be willing to participate in collaborative,
interdisciplinary research while in residence at UCSB. Scholars whose
work employs a transnational or comparative approach, particularly
between the U.S. and the Pacific Rim or Europe, are especially
encouraged to apply.

Positions are full time with a salary of $41,496-$47,328 (plus health
benefits) depending on experience. Some research funds are available as
well. Initial appointment is for one year; continuation beyond one year
will be based on performance and availability of funding.

When applying, prospective postdoctoral researchers should submit a full
c.v., a relevant sample of published or submitted work, and a plan for
research to be done while in residence at the CNS. They should also
provide two letters of reference, either with their application or
mailed directly to the CNS. All application materials should be sent to:

by October 1, 2009). Additional information about the position and the
