Date limite de dépôt des candidatures : 5 janvier 2021. Les entretiens en ligne auront lieu entre le 8 et le 12 février 2021. Le poste débutera le 1er août 2021 (ou à une date convenue d'un commun accord).

À propos du prix : La nomination est pour une période de quatre ans avec une exigence de 25 % d'enseignement. Au sein du département, l'enseignement est organisé en cinq sections : politique et administration publique, politiques comparées, théorie politique, politiques internationales et méthodes de recherche. Les candidats retenus travailleront en tant que doctorants sur le projet "ResilienceBuilding" : Résilience sociale, dynamique des genres et paix locale dans les conflits prolongés", financé par le Conseil européen de la recherche. Les candidats feront partie du programme de doctorat de la faculté, et les travaux effectués devraient mener à un doctorat en sciences politiques.

Le projet Resilience Building étudie les causes et les conséquences de la résilience sociale dans les conflits armés prolongés, avec un accent particulier sur le Nigeria, la République centrafricaine, le Sud-Soudan et le Kenya. Il s'interroge sur la manière dont les civils et les communautés développent la résilience sociale et s'adaptent à la dynamique des conflits de manière à prévenir ou à atténuer la violence, sur la manière dont ils maintiennent leur résilience et empêchent une nouvelle vulnérabilité à la recrudescence des conflits, et sur l'impact de la résilience sociale sur la consolidation de la paix et le développement. Le projet se concentre en outre sur l'interconnexion des dynamiques nationales et locales des conflits communaux et des guerres civiles afin d'étudier le potentiel et les limites des efforts internationaux et locaux de consolidation de la paix et les obstacles à une paix durable. La recherche sur la résilience sociale et les dynamiques de conflit à plusieurs niveaux intègre une perspective de genre. Cela signifie que la recherche examine les mécanismes d'adaptation sexospécifiques, les variations dans les relations entre les sexes dans les zones différemment touchées par le conflit, ainsi que les mouvements de femmes et les organismes de consolidation de la paix aux niveaux national et local.

Le projet est dirigé par le professeur associé Jana Krause et financé par une subvention de démarrage du CER, pour la période 2020-2025. Nous encourageons les candidats à s'informer sur le projet dans la proposition de projet.
