Dear Madam or Sir,
we would like to announce the

(deadline for applications: 15 January 2004)

The Institute for Advanced Studies on Science, Technology and
Society (IAS-STS) offers five grants (EUR 1,000.- per month) for
fellowships at the IAS- STS in Graz starting 1 October 2004, ending 30
June 2005. The IAS-STS promotes the interdisciplinary investigation of
the links and interactions between science, technology and society as
well as research on the development and implementation of socially
and environmentally sound technologies. The IAS-STS provides the
necessary research infrastructure, while a number of guest lecturers
and workshops foster an atmosphere of creativity and scholarly

The grants of the fellowship programme 2004/2005 are dedicated to
projects investigating the following issues:

1. Gender - Technology - Environment
Women with their various interests, competencies and potentials play
important parts in the process of shaping socially sound and
environmentally friendly, sustainable technologies - be it as users and
consumers, or as experts. Applications should focus on research in the
field of women in traditionally male fields of engineering, on ways of
creating cultures of success for women engineers (students,
graduates), and on masculinity and the culture of engineering.

2. Ethical, Legal and Social Aspects of Genome Research and
A main focus of the grant scheme lies on the analysis of ethical,
legal and social aspects of genome research. Research projects are
expected to provide a better understanding of life sciences in
concrete socio-cultural contexts of their fabrication, application and
regulation. Researchers investigating risk issues are especially
encouraged to apply.

3. Technology Studies and Sustainability
Grants will be awarded for research projects contributing to the issue
of sustainable development from the perspective of social studies or
the history of science and technology. Projects should aim at socio-
economic aspects of environmental technologies or at strategies of
environmental technology policy, such as user participation, strategic
niche management or ecological product policy. We encourage both
theoretical analysis and practically oriented case studies.

The grant application must be submitted together with an application
for a fellowship to the IAS-STS. Prof. Arno Bamme, Director of the
IAS-STS, decides on the awarding of fellowships and grants in
consultation with the Scientific Advisory Board.

Please note that it is also possible to apply for a fellowship without
a grant or to apply for a short- term fellowship without grant (not
longer than one month: Visiting Fellows). We also encourage senior
scientists to apply as guest lecturers.

Closing date for applications is 15 January 2004.
