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.).

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 (j.ward at maastrichtuniversity.nl<mailto:j.ward at maastrichtuniversity.nl>) if they have further questions about the position.
