Dear colleagues,

I’m pleased to announce that I have an open PhD position in the history
of public and/or political cybernetics. The PhD project will investigate
how cybernetics influenced new ideas and practices regarding public
and/or political institutions in the post-1945 period. Beyond this, the
successful candidate will be free to shape the scope and focus of the
project (geographical, chronological, etc.). You can read more about the
position here:

The application deadline is April 5^th , and the preferred starting date
for the position is September 1^st . I will be the lead supervisor and
the promoter/co-supervisor will be Prof. Cyrus Mody. Please forward this
to any interested candidates, who can contact me

if they have further questions about the position. Apologies for
cross-posting, and thank you for reading.

Best wishes,
