Assistant Professorship (three positions) – War Studies
The Danish Institute for Advanced Study, University of Southern Denmark, Odense (beginning Spring/Autumn 2018)
Research in War Studies is focused on the changing character of war and its relation to peace, and the impact of modern warfare on states, societies and military organizations. Our research agenda addresses the character of modern war, innovation and adaptation in strategy and military organizations, as well as the relationship between war, peace building, and human security/rights. We seek candidates with a distinct passion for war studies capable of engaging relevant policy communities and publishing in top scholarly outlets. We encourage applications from security studies scholars typically anchored in international relations but with a multi-disciplinary profile enabling cooperation with related fields such as international law and history. This prestigious position, supported by the Danish Institute for Advanced Studies (D-IAS), should appeal to highly promising early career scholars and will provide them with attractive conditions to support their research activities. We offer a uniquely ambitious research environment and ample research funding attached to this particular position, and, for the successful candidate, a position where options for tenure will be discussed during a third-year review.
Application guidelines can be found here. For further information please contact Prof. Sten Rynning, telephone +45 6550 2193 or email email@example.com. Application deadline 27 November.
