This researcher position is placed at TheAge of Adjustments – Critical and

engineering. We are interested in versatile and partly intertwining issues, such

normality, deviance and illness and health, as well as social technologies.
Particularly, we aim at a multidisciplinary (e.g. cultural anthropology,
history, human geography and philosophy) research on the emergence of practical
applications of proactive adaptation and governance.

The RC aims at creating a dynamic forum for PhD students and junior and senior
researchers for familiarising each other’s work; for sharing insights, case
study methods, problems and results; and for developing collaborative
partnerships. The community aims at organising annual conferences, smaller
seminars, and variety of workshops and lectures that will address all kinds of
topics in the fields in question. The RC was rated as ‘outstanding’ (6/6) in
the previous research assessment exercise at the University of Oulu in the
category of new research initiatives in 2013.

The position will be filled for two years, starting from 1st of March 2015 at

researcher will be set on levels 5–6 of the national salary scale for the
teaching and research staff of Finnish universities. In addition, supplementary
remuneration will be given for personal achievement and performance, the sum
rising to a maximum of 46.3% of whatever salary scale (5–6) is set for the
