What keeps cooperation going?
Resilient societies succeed in maintaining high levels of care, work and inclusion, despite the manifold challenges posed by changing circumstances, which currently range from an aging population to climate change. Key to a society’s resilience is its ability to sustain cooperation within and between families, organizations, and communities. But why is it that some cooperative arrangements thrive, whereas others fall into decay? This puzzle of sustainable cooperation is at the core of the SCOOP program. Uniting scholars from sociology, psychology, history, and philosophy, SCOOP will train a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners to develop evidence-based solutions to this puzzle. SCOOP will develop roadmaps for effective policy strategies and solutions for some of societies’ most pressing challenges. How can we find sustainable arrangements for the balance of work and care? How sustainable are current arrangements for the integration of newcomers in society? How can we resolve the tension between the interests of employees and other stakeholders within and outside organisations? How should responsibilities be distributed across the members of workgroups or decision-making bodies? We aim to attract outstanding PhD students who are motivated to participate in a challenging interdisciplinary research program focused on these and related questions.
A total of 60 PhD projects in the SCOOP research program will be dedicated to these questions. About 20 PhD projects have started already, or are starting in September 2018. We are now inviting candidates for a new group of 11 PhD projects. In addition, there are vacancies for two postdoc positions (two years). Detailed descriptions of these projects can be found on the SCOOP website: https://www.scoop-program.org/opportunities2/384-new-vacancies-11-phd-positions-sustainable-cooperation
Candidates who graduated in one of the social and behavioural sciences or in history or philosophy are invited to apply. Given the interdisciplinary character of the SCOOP program, graduates of other disciplines are also invited to apply. Although most applicants will have been trained in a monodisciplinary master program, we look for candidates with an open mind and open to the challenge to broaden their horizon and explore other disciplines.
