Fixed Term for 2 years
Coventry University will shortly be launching an innovative Applied Research Centre focused around the study of social relations. The new internationally focused Centre will direct its research and teaching towards one of the prime challenges and responsibilities of our time: how we can live together in peaceful relationships in a world of difference.
Acting as a space for cross- and inter-disciplinary dialogue, education and research, the centre will encourage work in applied and policy research in areas of integration and cohesion, while simultaneously expanding the portfolio to include multi- and inter-cultural relations, community relations, trust, identity, social policy as well as tension monitoring, conflict management, migration, diversity, integration, secularism and belief, the role of science in society, and international relations.
The successful candidate will have a PhD (or nearing completion) in an appropriate subject such as social sciences, sociology, humanities, anthropology, social psychology or other relevant discipline.
Interviews will take place on either 7th, 10th or 11th December 2012.
