Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research: Leadership Fellow for the Conflict Theme
Call for applications: Leadership Fellow for the Partnership’s Conflict Theme
The AHRC, working with the ESRC and other RCUK partners, is seeking to appoint a Leadership fellow for a three year period to provide intellectual leadership and strategic advice on the development of the new Conflict Theme within the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (RCUK Global Uncertainties Programme) (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Partnership’). The scope of the theme is explained in the theme description (ODT) (ODT, 9KB).
The appointed Fellow will:
- be expected to take a lead in developing cross-disciplinary innovation and communities of scholars in the field and fostering synergies between activities under the Partnership’s Conflict Theme, other relevant Research Council activities and with broader research communities in the UK and internationally
- work closely with the Partnership’s External Champion in building strategic partnerships and developing broader communication and engagement activities specifically related to the Partnership’s Conflict Theme.
- have the opportunity to develop his or her own leading-edge cross-disciplinary research agenda in areas relevant to the Partnership’s Conflict Theme.
The Fellow should have significant expertise in the arts and humanities and/or social sciences but their cross-disciplinary activities would not be limited to the remits of the AHRC and ESRC and would be expected to extend beyond these where appropriate.
Applications are invited from applicants who meet the eligibility and person specification outlined in the call document (ODT) (ODT, 9KB).
The call document outlines the full requirements of the fellowship and the application process. The deadline for applications is 4pm on Tuesday 30th September 2014. The Fellowship must start between 1st January 2015 and 1 April 2015.
The Fellowship will be administered and managed by the AHRC, which leads on the Partnership’s conflict theme on behalf of the participating Research Councils and will be co-funded by the AHRC and ESRC.
