about us

Post / Doc Lab Reorganizing Industries is part of the multidisciplinary research center MCTS, which explores the interactions between technology and society. The lab is specifically concerned with the transformation of industries in the course of digitization. Particular attention is paid to the role of organizations, as they are both drivers and victims of these transformation processes. Our research follows the principles of MCTS. She is:

  • interdisciplinary . We are developing new forms of collaborative research. This involves a close dialogue with other disciplines, especially with engineers.
  • reflexively . We are aware of the complex interactions between our research and its objects and apply this knowledge constructively.
  • empirically . We use a wide range of different empirical methods.

 

our range

 

You expect an excellent research and training environment in which you can develop and sharpen your profile as an internationally recognized junior scientist. The MCTS gives you the opportunity to enter into a dialogue with experts and the public and to acquire or deepen your experience of modern academic operations (lectures, publications of various kinds, conference organization, etc.). The university aims to increase the proportion of women. Qualified women are therefore urged to apply. Handicapped persons are preferred with essentially the same suitability. The position is limited to a period of 3 years. 



Your tasks

 

You are working on a third-party project on digitization, participation and organizational control. Using (expert) interviews and participating observations, you analyze the relationship between algorithmic and organizational control. The project is funded by the Hans Böckler Foundation. In this context, you are involved in the nationwide research network "Digitalisierung, Mitbestimmung, Gute Arbeit". The dissertation takes place within the project. 

What we expect

 

As an applicant, you have a Master's degree or equivalent qualification and extensive knowledge of at least two of the following areas: 

  • organizational sociology
  • Industrial and Industrial Sociology
  • Qualitative methods
  • Science and Technology Studies

Applicants should also have very good language skills in German and English. You should be able to work in an interdisciplinary context, both individually and as a team. 

Interest?

 

Then please send the complete application by 15 December 2017 in a PDF document to bewerbung@mcts.tum.de . In addition to the usual application documents (letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, certificates), a complete application also includes an approximate 



two- to five-page exposé of your planned dissertation in the subject area of the project. For specific inquiries regarding the application, please contact uli.meyer@tum. de. 



The interviews are expected to take place in the week of 8 January 2018.
