The Department of History of Science at Uppsala University invites applications for a postdoctoral position linked to the research project Early Citizen Science: How the public used Linnaean instructions to collect the World c. 1750-1850, funded by Knut & Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

About the project:
  • The project focuses on the tradition of scientific instructions – in particular British instructions inspired by Linnaean natural history – and pursues three consecutive areas of investigation: Why and how were instructions created, and what were their mediums and arenas of circulation? Why did people from different social strata engage with instructions, and how did personal motivations and local conditions shape collecting practices? How did university and museum professionals and collectors interact, and how did collecting networks develop during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries?


  • Applicant must have a PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in the humanities or social sciences.
  • The PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application deadline. The three year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.
