Post-Doc : Spatial and network analysis of material infrastructures (Amsterdam)


The postdoc position is part of a project on the social history of material infrastructures. This project examines how large-scale infrastructures such as roads, city walls, and bridges contributed to regional and empire-wide integration, but equally why and how processes of integration regularly broke down, and how large-scale infrastructure projects contributed to countervailing trends including local tensions, local autonomy, and cross-border regional formations. The postdoctoral fellow will be mainly responsible for 1) the spatial and network analysis of historical and archeological data provided by other team members; 2) analysing and modelling archaeological and textual data in relation to each other; 3) (co-)authoring of articles with other team members on the regional history of infrastructures; 4) collaborating with other team members and international partners on the design of a spatial analysis platform.
