ANU Indonesia Project Research Fellowship

The Australian National University (ANU) Indonesia Project aims to encourage research on the Indonesia’s development society and, in the longer term, to expand the number of young researchers with a close familiarity with Indonesia. To this end, it has received a grant from DFAT to partial fund a full-time (postdoctoral) research fellow who can undertake serious analytical work on any aspect of Indonesia’s development, and collaborate with the ANU Indonesia Project. The receiver of the funds will be called the ANU Indonesia Project (Postdoctoral) Research Fellow.

Whilst the fellow can be from any discipline and be based in any  department/centre/school within the ANU, a preference is for a researcher who works on the economy or the political economy of gender, disability or lagging regions in Indonesia. Training in economics is not required, however priority will be given to candidates that have some training in and familiarity with development economics or policy.

The appointed applicant can start as early as 1 November 2017 or as late as 1 June 2018.

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.
