Jobs at the Delft University of Technology

Delft University of Technology has four job openings as part of the research project New Technologies as Social Experiments: Conditions for Morally Responsible Experimentation. A complete description of the project can be requested, or is available on the website 


1. Postdoc (vacancy number: ATTBM11-011): Regulation and governance of technological hazards

The key objective of this research project is to investigate the implications of adopting a conceptualization of technological development as a social experiment for the regulation and governance of technological hazards. 

Applicants must have a PhD in philosophy, law or STS. They must have a demonstrable interest in applied ethics and the regulation and governance of technology. It must be obvious from earlier publications that candidates possess good analytical and philosophical skills. Finally we are seeking a postdoc who would like to work in a team.

Conditions of employment
The extent of this position is a maximum of 38 hours per week (1.0 FTE). The position has a temporary employment basis of three years. The estimated starting salary is between €2,379 to €3,755 per month gross (based on a full-time appointment and depending on experience).

2. Phd Student (vacancy number: ATTBM11-010): Nuclear energy technology as social experiment
3. Phd Student (vacancy number: ATTBM11-010): Biotechnology as social experiment
4. Phd Student (vacancy number: ATTBM11-010): Nanotechnology as social experiment

Each of the PhD projects focuses on a specific engineering domain. It specifies and tests the conditions for responsible experimentation for that technological domain. Each project will consist of two more specific case studies and a further theoretical development of the notion of social experimentation adapted to that domain. The candidate will participate in the PhD program of the 3TU.Centre for Ethics and Technology (http://www.ethicsandtechnology.eu/teaching/phdprogram/)
Possibly, one of the positions may be converted into a 3-year postdoc project. So, also people with a PhD can apply for these positions.

The candidate must have graduated in philosophy, engineering or a relevant socio-scientific discipline, like STS (science and technology studies). He or she will have demonstrable interest in applied ethics and in technology. It is recommended that the candidate has had experience in carrying out empirical research and has knowledge of the relevant technological domain studied in the PhD project.

Conditions of employment
The extent of this position is a maximum of 38 hours per week (1 FTE). The position has a temporary employment basis of four years. In the first year the salary will be € 2,042 gross per month, rising to € 2,612 gross per month in the fourth year.

Information and application
For more information about this position or to apply, please contact Dr. ir. Ibo van de Poel, phone: +31 (0)15-2784716, email: i.r.vandepoel@tudelft.nl. To apply, please e-mail a detailed CV along with a letter of application by 15 October 2011 to vacature-tbm@tudelft.nl.

When applying for one of these jobs always mention the vacancy number.
