Employment category Doctoral fellow

Occupancy rate 100%
Vacancy Type Research staff
The Conflict Research Group (CRG) at the University of Ghent is seeking a PhD candidate to conduct research on the intersection of political ecology and critical conflict studies – focussing on the topic of conservation in violent environments from a postcolonial perspective. The project will be funded by BOF (Bijzonder Onderzoeks Fonds) from the UGent.
Within this broad framework, the candidate is free to indicate her/his own field of interest. Here, a list of possible topics for inspiration:
Candidates are free to indicate her/his own field of interest, and in which geographical context they want to conduct their research. Prior experience in the area of research, and the knowledge of local languages is an asset. Yet, while the research design of the project should depart from an empirical grounded approach, this does not entail that what is understood as ‘fieldwork’ is solely restricted to long-term field work in conflict affected areas; ethnographic research in and on international conservation organisations, colonial archives, museums etc.; is for example also possible.
More information and inspiration about the field of research can be found in this recent published Special Issue on “conservation in violent environments” in Political Geography; https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0962629820303164
The fellowship is four years.
The PhD candidate must have residence in Belgium during the fellowship.
For further information on the position please contact: Esther Marijnen firstname.lastname@example.org
The application must be sent via email to Dr. Esther Marijnen (Esther.email@example.com) as a single PDF file by 4th of January 2021, with the subject mentioning “PhD_application”. Early application is highly recommended. After an initial selection based on the applications, interviews will take place.Meer informatie
