The position is part of the interdisciplinary research group "Technology, Power, Domination", which starts in mid-September and is headed by Dr. Lena Ulbricht and Dr. Thorsten Thiel; the Principal Investigator is Prof. Dr. Jeanette Hofmann. The group investigates the changing power relations in the context of the digital transformation and the redistribution of political agency. The aim is to analyse the interplay of technical, political, economic and legal dynamics with regard to power and domination and to identify democratic options for shaping socio-technical change. The research group will build on the outcomes of the two previous research groups "Quantification and Social Regulation" and "Democracy and Digitalisation".
