Project: The project EXCEL tackles enhancement technologies as bio-investment practices to promote personal competitiveness according to a logic of excellence, reading bodily and cognitive alterations as processes of self-making.
Focusing on the Greater Lisbon area and noting the national and transnational circuits that affect this context, we aim to add to existing statistical and bioethical analyses qualitative, ethnographic data to unfold the complexity of these practices, by examining the relationship between subjectivity, body management and citizenship. Drawing from Aihwa Ong (2006) we will approach citizenship as a sociocultural process of subjectification – of self-making and being-made.
The aim is to bridge the micro-dynamics of specific forms of bio-investment – exploring practices of and aspirations for biomedical self-making – with the genesis of new markets and transnational circuits of cosmetic medical tourism.

Tasks to be developed: the research fellows will be performing research-supporting tasks within the project EXCEL, with a special focus on: collection and organization of bibliographic references; undertaking of interviews and ethnographic work; supporting the preparation, presentation and dissemination of the project’s reports and scientific papers; supporting the organization of seminars and other dissemination events.

Public announcement and deadline for applications: This advertisement and the further particulars to this post will be posted in the website of ICS-ULisboa and in the Eracareers portal. Applications should be sent between 8 and 28 November 2018.
