DOCTORAL AND MASTERS FELLOWSHIPS / АСПИРАНТУРА И МАГИСТРАТУРА
1 PHD POSITION OR POSTDOCTORAL GRANT FOR WORK ON THE ANTHROPOLOGY OF KINSHIP
(starting May 1st 2015)
Integration and conflict are central points of reference for the analysis of the interaction of ethnic groups and states. The construction, meaning, and communication of identity offer an important field of research within this frame of reference. The analysis of descriptions of the self and others in processes of peaceful and violent interaction and, in particular, the development of identities in confrontations with other groups, are at the centre of this research program. Description and analysis of conflict mechanisms also play an important role here. Further background information concerning the Department can be found on our homepage: http://www.eth.mpg.de/cms/en/research/d1.
Essential Duties & Responsibilities
Within the general themes of identity/identification and difference, we run a programme on ‘Kinship Universals and Variation‘ (KUV) [link: http://www.eth.mpg.de/cms/de/people/d/heady/project4.html] – in the tradition of Morgan, Fortes, Goody and Lévi-Strauss, and in dialogue with comparable work being done under the heading of evolutionary anthropology.
The KUV programme is explicitly comparative, and uses a mixed research strategy in which researchers are expected to combine participant observation with the use of a specially designed Kinship Network Questionnaire (KNQ), designed for computer-assisted interviewing. The KNQ collects genealogical data (and data on comparable non-genealogical relationships) linking it to such themes as social and ritual interaction, mutual assistance, property transmission, naming and kinship terminology – in a format that can be used for comparative analysis.
We are looking for research proposals that are interesting in their own right, and that will also generate data that can be used for comparisons. We will favour proposals that explain how ethnographic material and KNQ data can be combined to shed light on the chosen research topic. As a rough guide, about one third of the field and analysis effort should be devoted to KNQ-related work. The applicants will be expected to share their KNQ data with other members of the KUV team for joint analysis and publication.
Applications focusing on Central Asia are particularly welcome, in the context of a joint research programme with the University of Zurich (http://casca-halle-zurich.org). However, other areas in the world will be considered if the suggested project fits particularly well into the thematic fields of the Department and of the KUV project.
The post will be based in Halle/Saale and the successful applicants will take part in the PhD training program of the Department ‘Integration and Conflict’.
Good field research skills, the ability to work in a team, and communication skills with good written and spoken English are required.
Qualifications in the anthropology of kinship would be highly welcome, and so would experience in quantitative and comparative methods.
As a rule dissertations are written in English. Acquisition of the German language is encouraged, especially if there is relevant literature on the research topic in German. Field Research is carried out in the local language.
A PhD position is generally awarded for 3 years. We expect our PhD students to complete a one year period of fieldwork as part of their studies.
A postdoctoral grant is generally awarded for 2 years with a possible extension of one year. It is not taxed and free from social security stipulations.
The Max Planck Society strives to employ more persons with disabilities and explicitly encourages applications. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society is committed to raising the proportion of women in underrepresented fields; we thus explicitly encourage applications by women.
Please submit your application electronically by February 28th 2015 following the link for vacancies on our homepage. The application should include:
• cover letter
• project proposal referring to the research agenda of the Department ‘Integration and Conflict’ (five
• photocopies of university degrees
• name of 2-3 referees, whom Professor Günther Schlee may contact for confidential references

IMPRS ANARCHIE - PH.D. OPPORTUNITIES IN SOCIAL ANTHROPOLOGY, ARCHAEOLOGY AND HISTORY
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 2015
The aim of ANARCHIE is to renew transdisciplinary agendas in fields where socio-cultural anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians have much to gain from cross-fertilisation. While the first and the second cohorts of PhD students are conducting research in the fields of collective identifications and religion and ritual respectively, the third cohort will explore inequality and social change, with a particular focus on economic and demographic drivers. For the purposes of ANARCHIE, Eurasia is defined as the super-continent which comprises the whole of Asia and the whole of Europe. Current projects range from Britain and Spain to Mongolia and Vietnam. The IMPRS ANARCHIE is open to students from all countries and offers an international three-year PhD program in a stimulating research environment. Highly motivated M.A. graduates in Social Anthropology, Archaeology, History or a related discipline are encouraged to apply.
The Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology is one of the world’s leading centres for research in social anthropology. Common to all research projects at the Max Planck Institute is the comparative analysis of social change; it is primarily in this domain that its researchers contribute to anthropological theory, though many programmes also have applied significance and political topicality.
Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) – for more than 500 years a place of scientific enlightenment, academic development and future-oriented research – is the largest university in the state of Saxony-Anhalt. The historical departments of the MLU specialize in the study of transnational spaces and the analysis of social, political and cultural transformation processes in a longue durée perspective. Staff are active in systematic comparative research in both European and extra-European contexts. Archaeologists at the MLU investigate Europe and the Mediterranean region in its Eurasian context. Of particular interest are large-scale communication systems which facilitate the movement of knowledge, persons and goods.
Essential Duties & Responsibilities
Students will obtain their doctorate in one of the three disciplines, but will participate in a common programme organised jointly by social anthropologists (Department “Resilience and Transformation in Eurasia” of the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology), historians (the Institutes for History and for the Study of the Ancient World of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg), and archaeologists (Institute for Art History and European Archaeology of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg). ANARCHIE is embedded in other institutions of the Martin Luther University, notably the University’s International Graduate Academy.
The IMPRS is in certain circumstances ready to consider joint supervision of PhD projects with colleagues based at institutions outside Halle.
The group will work together in Halle/Saale (except when undertaking field or archival research elsewhere, the costs of which will be covered).
See Appendices below for more detail concerning each discipline. Applicants should make their primary discipline clear in their proposal. If shortlisted, they may be invited to revise it to fit in better with the overall profile of ANARCHIE and the expertise available to provide supervision.
The PhD positions/grants offered here will be awarded for up to three years. (Grants are not taxed and they are free from social security stipulations).
Applicants should send the following documentation:
Signed cover letter listing your aims and reasons for pursuing your doctorate at the IMPRS ANARCHIE
Curriculum vitae in the European Curriculum Vitae format (http://europass.cedefop.europa.eu/), including list of publications
Short summary (no more than two pages) of the research proposed, which should demonstrate clear links both to the applicant’s previous work and qualifications as well as to the IMPRS ANARCHIE
Copies of all relevant degree certificates and official transcripts of all academic records (B.A. and M.A.). If issued in a language other than English or German, please include translations.
Names and contact details of two referees, whom we may contact.
All application documents should be scanned in the order listed above and uploaded as one PDF file (max. 10 MB).
Please submit your application electronically by 28 February 2015 following the link for vacancies on our homepage (click here).
Final selection will be made following interviews (provisional) in May 2015.

JOB UNIVERSITY OF AMSTERDAM - THREE PHD CANDIDATES IN ANTHROPOLOGY OF SCIENCE (SECOND CALL)
The Amsterdam Institute of Social Science Research (AISSR) and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam are looking for three PhD candidates who will participate in the ERC funded research project 'Race Matter: The absent presence of race in forensic investigation', directed by Dr. Amade M’charek.
This project examines race in forensic identification by focusing on practices of giving a face to an unknown individual, a suspect or a victim. Although the face is generally viewed as the ultimate individual identifier, in practice individuality cannot be achieved without situating an individual in a population. The question is whether and how population gets translated into race.
The chief objective of this project is to explore a) how technologies of identification rely on and reiterate racial ways of understanding differences; b) how the version of race enacted in the process changes as knowledge travels across forensic sites; and c) which mechanisms contribute to the absent-presentness of race.
The three PhDs will focus on different technologies of identification through in-depth multi-sited ethnographies:
genetic facial phenotyping (e.g. the inference of facial form, hair, skin and iris colour from DNA);
craniofacial reconstruction (based on the skull) and
facial composite through sketching or photofit.
Each of these technologies will be the focus of 1 PhD project. Ethnographies will be conducted throughout the full chain of forensic evidence making from the R&D laboratories to the forensic institutes, police stations and the courtroom. Across these sites the focus is on how knowledge travels and identities get translated. The project will make an original contribution to the anthropology of science and the anthropology of race in particular, by following knowledge around and attending to the ways race gets made and unmade in practices.
Conduct ethnographic field research;
write and complete a PhD dissertation within four years;
participate in the AISSR PhD programme;
participate in conferences, workshops, seminars and other scholarly activities.
PhD candidates should have the following credentials:
Relevant experience with ethnographic field research, ideally also with material semiotics;
well versed in STS theories and methods, such as Actor Network Theory and post-colonial studies;
a completed MA degree in anthropology, science and technology studies, post-colonial studies or related fields such as qualitative sociology or human geography;
excellent written and spoken English and ideally also Dutch linguistic skills;
ability and interest to work in a 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 April 2015. The gross monthly salary will be €2,125 in the first year and €2,717 in the fourth year, based on a full-time position (38 hours per week), plus 8% holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of- year allowance. This is in conformity with the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities.
University of Amsterdam
With over 5,000 employees, 30,000 students and a budget of more than 600 million euros, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is an intellectual hub within the Netherlands. Teaching and research at the UvA are conducted within seven faculties: Humanities, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry.
The UvA’s students and employees are independent thinkers, competent rebels who dare to question dogmas and aren’t satisfied with easy answers and standard solutions. To work at the UvA is to work in a discerning, independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society.
The Department of Anthropology is one of the departments of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (FMG). Research and education are carried out by special institutes. Research takes place under the aegis of the AISSR, a multidisciplinary research institute, the biggest one of its kind in the Netherlands and possibly in Europe. The broad scope and pluralism of our education and research programmes are inspired by and reflect a strong degree of internationalization.

16th International Graduate Student Conference on Transatlantic History
by Christopher Malmberg
Sixteenth Annual International Graduate Student Conference on Transatlantic History
University of Texas at Arlington
Date of Conference: September 17-19, 2015
Deadline for Abstract Submissions: April 1, 2015
Donna Gabaccia, University of Toronto Scarborough
Steven Pincus, Yale University
The Transatlantic History Student Organization in collaboration with the Barksdale Lecture Series, the History Department, and the College of Liberal Arts of the University of Texas at Arlington are sponsoring the Sixteenth Annual International Graduate Student Conference on Transatlantic History.
Transatlantic history examines the circulation and interaction of people, goods, and ideas between and within any of the four continents surrounding the Atlantic basin between the time of the first Atlantic contacts in the 1400s and the present day. Situated primarily in the fields of both social and cultural history, its approaches are problem-oriented in scope, and highlighted by comparative and transnational frameworks.
This conference seeks to explore and further establish shared terminology, methodologies, and defining parameters as they pertain to the field of transatlantic history. It also seeks to serve as an interdisciplinary and intercontinental meeting place where such ideas can converge into a common conversation.
We invite paper and panel submissions that are historical, geographical, anthropological, literary, sociological, and cartographic in nature that fall within the scope of transatlantic studies from both graduate students and young scholars. We will accept submissions for papers written in English, French, Spanish, and German.
Selected participants’ papers will be considered for publication in Traversea, the peer-reviewed, online, open-access journal in transatlantic history operated by doctoral students as a joint project between THSO and the doctoral program in transatlantic history at the University of Texas at Arlington.
Topics may include but are not limited to the following:
New World encounters
Making of nation-states
Transatlantic cuisine and consumption
Intercultural transfer and transfer studies
Teaching transnational history
Submission of individual paper abstracts should be approximately three hundred words in length and should be accompanied by an abbreviated, maximum one-page, curriculum vita. Panel proposals (3-4 people) should include titles and abstracts of panel as a whole as well as each individual paper. Deadline for submission is April 1, 2015. We will notify authors of accepted papers by April 15, 2015.
Financial assistance may be available to eligible international presenters.
The Conference Organizing Committee is composed of Christopher Malmberg, Jacob Jones, Lydia Towns, and Cory Wells. Please direct submissions and questions to Christopher Malmberg email@example.com.

The 6th International Conference of Nordic and Baltic Studies in Romania will be held at Ovidius University of Constanta, one of the most beautiful and culturally rich cities on the Black Sea coast. The university bears the name of the Roman poet Publius Ovidius Naso, who lived the last years of his life in Tomis, a former Greek colony later to become the city of Constanta. The university is an institution in the service of regional community and has a profound international impact in the Black Sea area and beyond. Some of the values that guide the university are inspired by the life and works of Ovid, who proved creative freedom and desire to leave a permanent and unique cultural trace, capable of enduring the passage of time.
The conference is organized by the Romanian Association for Baltic and Nordic Studies in cooperation with the International Summer School of the University of Oslo, Norway and the Faculty of History and Political Sciences of Ovidius University of Constanta, Romania and in partnership with the Nordic and Baltic embassies and consulates in Romania. The conference is sponsored through the EEA and Norway Grants 2009-2014 within the Fund for Bilateral Relations at National Level.
The meeting will focus on historical memory, the politics of memory and cultural identity in Romania, Scandinavia and Black Sea Region seen in comparison, but is open to contributions from other areas of interconnection between Romania and the Black Sea region, and Scandinavia and Baltic Sea Region such as energy, geography and environment, the role of women in shaping the society, economics and trade, international relations and political science etc.
Many of the leading international figures in Scandinavian, Baltic and Black Sea studies will be attending this meeting and we strongly stimulate the formation of new networks of cooperation as well as re-invigorating existing collaborations. The conference will include a roundtable on historical memory, the politics of memory and cultural identity: Romania, Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region in comparison as well as other meaningful cultural and social events.
In order to facilitate your participation at our meeting in Constanta, the participation fee is waved for all speakers and attendees.
The conference dates are May 22-23, 2015 and we cordially invite you to the beautiful ancient colony of Tomis and today's culturally rich city of Constanta to enjoy a most inspiring meeting of our Nordic, Baltic and Black sea community.
