The University is looking for a responsible, motivated and committed person in context of the project “DigID – Doing Digital Identities” which has been funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and is led by Prof. Stephan Scheel, Chair of Political Sociology, at the Institute of Sociology and Cultural Organization of the Leuphana University Lüneburg.
You will be working as a Post-doctoral Researcher in context of the internationally renowned Centre for Digital Cultures (CDC). Your main task will be to implement and support research activities in context of the ERC-funded project ‘DigID – Doing Digital Identities’ (2023-2028; in the following: DigID). The project investigates – in five country case studies – how the shift towards digital identification technologies changes the relations and interactions between state institutions and citizens. It engages with this research question in three sites in which digital methods of identification are increasingly used: (1) birth registration, (2) mundane citizen-state transactions for enacting social and political rights and (3) border controls. The person hired for this position will be in charge of the country case study of Sierra Leone. The position is supposed to start on 1st September 2023 or according to a negotiated starting date.
