The École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) is offering a
post-doctoral contract for research on the topic of “Environment in Asia ».
The contract is for twelve months starting on 1st October 2020 with a gross
salary of 2365 € a month.

For this position, we are looking for candidates working on environmental
issues. Open to all social science fields, the project should concentrate
on Asia, involving the study of primary sources and vernacular language
data. Priority will be given to candidates already collaborating with the
Asian scientific community. Projects may address environmental challenges,
policies and the temporality of their implementation, or social
representations and associated behaviors – which vary greatly according to
the specific country or field under consideration. The research project
will also have to show how its research objects lead to a more global
reflection, prompted by the analysis of  the Asian area.

The École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (School of Advanced
Studies in the Social Sciences) is a graduate-only research institution
that has a unique standing in the world of research and higher education in
France. It hosts scholars from all over the world committed to the study of

January 31, 2020 in an institution other than the EHESS, in France or

with an international scope and which open up a potential for dialogue with
several laboratories or fields at the EHESS.

The EHESS values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity and
gender parity. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
