Applicants are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work with Dr Rebecca Bramall on a three-year project examining meanings and practices of economic contribution in the context of digitalization.

The project investigates the role of the digital in collective, common-sense understandings of prosocial contribution and redistribution.
