Offer Description

WORKING ENVIRONMENT AND CONTEXT 

The Ecole des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (www.ehess.fr ) is a public “grand établissement” with a mission of research in the humanities and social sciences, and research training. EHESS is home to 3,000 students, including 1,500 PhD students (with nearly 250 theses defended each year in all social science disciplines) and as many Master’s students. EHESS is also home to 40 research units organized around a particular field, approach or, for a third of them, “cultural area”. Within these units, more than 500 teachers and researchers develop knowledge, train and supervise master’s and doctoral students.

The École is a founding member of the Etablissement public Campus Condorcet, whose mission is to promote scientific cooperation between its founding members, in particular by supporting their research programs, and to provide researchers and students attending the Campus with living and working conditions that meet international standards.

 

Winner of the second wave of Investissement d’avenir, the laboratory centre of excellence, LabEx TEPSIS (Transformation de l’Etat, Politisation des Sociétés, Institution du Social) comprises 15 social science research centers and the Centre de Formation des Journalistes (CFJ). The 15 Mixed Research Centers (unités mixtes de recherche, UMR) are listed on the LabEx tepsis.io website, along with the 300-plus researchers who are members. Based on a historical, sociological and philosophical exploration of the diversity of modes of political intervention in the city and in the space of societies, the LabEx’s multidisciplinary approaches link the analysis of modes of government in modern and contemporary societies, and that of social practices that transform the forms of organization and regulation of human activities.
