The Center for Religious Studies at Central European University invites applications for two post-doctoral fellow positions for its new research project Striking from the Margins. The project, which examines religion and state disintegration in the Middle East, is supported jointly by the University and by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The two positions will be granted for the period two years, beginning January 1, 2017. For information on the program please visit https://religion.ceu.edu/projects.
The main focus of the project is on Syria and Iraq in the past three decades, seeking to connect developments in these countries with those in Arab countries and with global dynamics overall.
Applications are invited from researchers working in one of the five thematic fields
The fellowships will be offered to researchers who wish to conduct original research and who have already extensive experience with and in the region. It is expected that applicants apply with their own research profiles and agendas which they will integrate and develop further within the framework of the project.
Post-doctoral fellows will join doctoral students and members of CEU faculty from across a number of disciplines, along with external colleagues and members of partner institutions, in contributing to coherent research program. The project aims to produce a critical mass of original scholarship that would map novel research domains to produce more convincing analytical results. With specific reference to postdoctoral fellows, it aims to produce detailed empirical research with appropriate analytical elaboration that would be published and disseminated in print and in digital form. The two post-doctoral fellows will be expected to participate in a bi-weekly internal seminar, participate fully in the life of the project, and to play a major role in preparing an international conference at the end of the project which will bring in participants from both the research and policy communities and which will result in a major publication.
Fellows will be required to enter into a definite term employment contract with Central European University. Fellows will benefit from the usual research facilities in place, and will be eligible for support for field research.
