The Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM) is hiring a Postdoc researcher position as part of the Horizon Europe-funded project 'Petroculture’s Intersection with the Cultural Heritage Sector in the Context of Green Transitions' (PITCH), led by researchers Dr. Jeff Diamanti and Dr. Colin Sterling.

PITCH aims to create a deeper understanding of petroculture’s intersections with heritage practices and how these reflect social, economic, and political changes over time. Through this research, the project aims to help citizens understand how petrocultures have affected their lives and be confident about how they might envision those lives otherwise, in a post fossil-fuel world.

The University of Amsterdam’s contribution to the project will focus on the creative re-use of fossil fuel infrastructures. As a post-doctoral researcher on the project, you will contribute to research on emerging economic and ecological approaches that aim to reinterpret and animate fossil fuel infrastructures in ways that actively build a more just and sustainable future. You will also undertake primary research in collaboration with project partner E-WERK Luckenwalde, a not-for-profit Kunststrom (‘art-power’) Kraftwerk (power station) and contemporary art centre. We are looking for a candidate who is proactive, who can work across academic and artistic contexts, and who combines attention to detail with critical and creative thinking.

The deadline for applications is 1 March 2024.
