The Global Leadership Project at the University of Texas is looking to recruit country specialists to collect biographical information on political leaders around the world and update this data in our website. Foreign language readers are strongly encouraged to apply. Southeast Asia countries of interest: Cambodia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Timor-Leste (East Timor)

The Global Leadership Project (GLP) is the first dataset to offer biographical information on leaders throughout the world including members of the executive, the legislature, the judiciary, and other elites whose power is of an informal nature. At present, the GLP encompasses 145 sovereign and semisovereign nation-states and 38,085 leaders, each of whom is coded along 31 parameters, producing approximately 1.1 million data points in a cross-sectional format centered on 2010-13. With this data, one can compare the characteristics of leaders within countries, across countries, and across regions. The GLP promises to serve as a fundamental resource for researchers, policymakers, and citizens, and several research papers are currently under review or in progress.

We are about the launch the second wave of data collection with a grant from the World Bank and we are looking for individuals to take a strong role in such tasks as:

(a)  Look for biographical information of political leaders of your country of expertise such as leaders of the judiciary, executive, and members of the parliament. This data is usually available online. In countries where the data is not easily available in online sources, the coder is expected to make research in other sources (i.e. newspapers, parliamentary archives, etc.) where the data might be available.

(b) Update the data found in our website

The work will be done remotely. So, there is no need to be in the US or in Austin to work with us. Some stipend will be paid per country coded, i.e. around $450. However, the “payoff” from this project would be primarily in the form of name recognition in your website under the data one collected and CV improvement purposes. We will fully attribute credit to the country experts for the country on which they work.

If you are interested please let us know by sending a copy of your CV, along with your country(ies) of interest to pedrombarros@alumni.lse.ac.uk

Postdoctoral fellowship : Japan-ASEAN Platform for Transdisciplinary Studies

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS DEADLINE: July 31, 2017

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) at Kyoto University, Japan, invites applications for a two-year CSEAS Postdoctoral Fellowship under its program “Japan-ASEAN Platform for Transdisciplinary Studies.”

Southeast Asia, through its regional inter-governmental institution of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), has emerged as a hub for Asian community-building. The highly diverse societies in this region have undergone rapid social, economic, political and environmental changes.

Under this six-year program funded by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), we aim to establish several sub-projects that are solution-oriented. By developing a “transdisciplinary platform”, we seek to generate a practical dialogue between academic and non-academic stakeholders for transformative research on the ASEAN region.

We attend to a variety of issues, such as:

1) environmental degradation
2) natural resource governance
3) economic growth and distribution
4) democratization
5) aging, health, and welfare
6) urbanization and depopulation
7) emerging infectious diseases
8) natural disasters
The root causes of these pressing issues must be understood and solutions must be sought beyond the confinement of nationalism, academic disciplinarity, and barriers separating academic and non-academic stakeholders.

Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology : Openings for PhD students

Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology : Openings for PhD students

The International Max Planck Research School for the Anthropology, Archaeology and History of Eurasia (IMPRS ANARCHIE), a cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology and the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, offers Openings for PhD students starting 1st of October 2017.

The projects of the fourth cohort of the IMPRS ANARCHIE will be devoted to the topic of Representing Domination.

Deadline for Applications : 30 avril 2017

Doctoral students shall investigate how various modes and processes of communication and contestation with regard to (legitimate) domination are determined by practices of representation and by the (usually heterogeneous and often conflictual) dynamics that have shaped these practices of representation through space and time. Students will tackle varying forms of representation, approached as a basic form of human social interaction, by examining and comparing their spatio-temporal variability in past and present Eurasia. We especially invite projects which are dealing with the following topics and their relation to the issue of domination:

  • Representation of power
  • Representation of space and collective identities
  • Representation of status, rank, prestige
  • Representation through roles
  • Representing the past
  • Representing the dea

The aim of ANARCHIE is to renew transdisciplinary agendas in fields where social and cultural anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians have much to gain from cross-fertilisation. For the purposes of ANARCHIE, Eurasia is defined as the super-continent which comprises the whole of Asia and the whole of Europe and the Mediterranean. Previous projects have ranged from Britain and Spain to Mongolia and Vietnam. The IMPRS ANARCHIE is open to students from all countries and offers an international three-year (with the possibility of extension) PhD program in a stimulating research environment. Highly motivated students possessing a Masters degree in Socio-Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, History or a related discipline are encouraged to apply.
