Dear colleagues,

I’m pleased to announce that I have an open, fully-funded 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 5th, and the preferred starting date for
the position is September 1st. 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 on my work e-mail (
j.ward at maastrichtuniversity.nl) if they have further questions about the
position. Apologies for cross-posting, and thank you for reading.

Best wishes,
