Are you interested in being a Resident Peace Scholar?
The Centre for Peace Studies (CPS) welcomes applications from researchers and scholars at the University of Tromsø (UiT) whose interests are in direct relevance to CPS research and outreach priorities (see policy statement at: http://www.peace.uit.no/). The Resident Peace Scholar program is designed to deepen the intra/inter faculty collaborations, which have sustained the master's degree programme in Peace and Conflict Transformation (MPCT) since 2002, and also promote, energise and profile peace research at UiT. Its objective is to galvanise CPS as an innovative arena for conversations among academic disciplines on peace and conflict issues and thereby realise its foundational ideas.
In order to realise the programme objectives, Resident Peace Scholars will be required to:
- Use the residency period primarily for research publication
- Share work in progress and research findings at seminars
- Make contributions to on-going and/or new research projects
- Interact with CPS staff and students
One (1) to six (6) months depending on staff plans and the required incentive package.
CPS will provide office space, and a stimulating international milieu for research.
CPS will provide a one-time payment of up to NOK 20 000 (depending on contract period) to cover research related expenses - i.e. similar to existing annuum arrangements at UiT
The programme is open to all UiT researchers/scholars with a documented interest in peace and conflict issues (see policy statement at: http://www.peace.uit.no/). Prospective applicants must be one of the following:
- PhD fellows, post-doctoral scholars and other professional academics
There is no application deadline, but enquiries and applications must be received in due time before the proposed starting date of the residency. To file a formal application, please provide the following information:
- A current curriculum vitae
