DOCTORAL AND MASTERS FELLOWSHIPS / АСПИРАНТУРА И МАГИСТРАТУРА
JOB - FOUR PHD CANDIDATES IN ANTHROPOLOGY OR CLOSELY RELATED DISCIPLINE
The AISSR and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam are looking for PhD candidates who will participate in the ERC-funded research project ‘Problematizing “Muslim Marriages”: Ambiguities and Contestations’, directed by Prof. Dr. Annelies Moors.
This ethnographic project employs the term ‘Muslim marriages’ in a broad sense, as it emerges in public debate and as a form of marriage practice that at least one of the parties concerned considers Islamically valid. It investigates both when and how particular marriage forms have become subject to public debate and what kinds of new (or new uses of old) marriage forms and wedding celebrations are emerging in everyday life. Depending on context, this includes, for instance, unregistered, visiting, temporary, interreligious, transnational, and polygamous marriages. Who are participating in these marriage forms, and how are they performed? Who are able to shape these new forms? How and by whom are such marriages authenticated, authorized or contested as Muslim marriages? Under which conditions do particular forms of Muslim marriages emerge and become licit while other forms become devalued and marginalized? The wider question this project addresses is what economic, political, religious and cultural work these new Muslim marriages do. What subjectivities and socialities do they produce? How do they shape economic relations, group boundaries, religious ethics, and cultural forms? Theoretically, this project intends to contribute to fields such as: Islam, public debate, legal practices, and everyday life; globalization, marriage and reproduction; the family, economy, and intimacy; the body, gender, and sexuality; religion, ethics and aesthetics.
PhD candidates will be based in Amsterdam at the AISSR and will conduct longer term ethnographic fieldwork, preferably in Indonesia, Lebanon, Morocco, the Gulf States and the Balkans. Candidates with strong arguments to do fieldwork elsewhere may also apply.
Conduct ethnographic field research;
Write and complete a PhD dissertation within four years and submit articles to refereed journals or edited volumes;
Collaborate with supervisors and peers on research and publications;
Participate in conferences, workshops, seminars and other scholarly activities;
Participate in the AISSR PhD programme;
10% teaching (contingent upon availability).
Phd Candidates should have the following credentials:
A completed MA degree in anthropology or closely related discipline (such as Muslim family law);
Relevant ethnographic fieldwork experience, ideally in the fieldwork locations and/or related to the research themes;
Knowledge of current theoretical and societal debates on ‘Muslim marriages’;
Excellent written and spoken English and knowledge of the language(s) needed for fieldwork;
Ability and interest to work collegially with the other members of the research team.
Conditions of employment
The full-time appointments will be for a period of four years (12 months plus a further 36 months contingent on a satisfactory performance during the first year), starting 1 September 2014.
The gross monthly salary will be €2,083 in the first year and €2,664 in the fourth year, based on a full-time position of 38 hours per week, plus 8% holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of- year allowance, in conformity with the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities.

Merit-based Scholarship GPA is calculated cumulatively since the beginning of the studies of the program at AAU.
Merit-based Scholarship is awarded to students who have taken at least 4 courses the previous semester at AAU. The dean may ease that condition to 3 courses.
Students who register for the next semester prior to the end of the current semester are assigned the tuition that does not yet reflect the Merit-based Scholarship. This is calculated after the grades are in. Eligible students that have already paid the tuition will be given either the financial refund or tuition credit for future studies depending on their choice.
Merit Based Scholarschips do not apply to MBA program.
These scholarships are offered to graduates of any programs of Anglo-American University, Anglo-American College, The New Anglo-American College in Prague and apply to the first year of study only.
