PhD Studentship Reconciliation & Peace EU Students
Professor Brian Walker MBE – 13. August 2015 20:00 – PhD Studentship (Reconciliation & Peace) for UK/EU Students, University of Winchester
Winchester Centre of Religions for Reconciliation and Peace
Applications are invited from suitably qualified individuals wishing to undertake doctoral research with the Winchester Centre of Religions for Reconciliation and Peace (WCRRP). The WCRRP is a vibrant and rapidly developing research centre which examines the role faith based organisations, religious leaders, and faith communities can play in peacebuilding and reconciliation processes. With a specific focus on practice-based research, this is an exciting opportunity to work in an area of academia which has the potential to make a significant and tangible impact on people directly affected by conflict around the world.
We invite applications for students to undertake doctoral research in reconciliation and religious peacebuilding, and particularly welcome applications in the areas of:
• Middle Eastern approaches to reconciliation (with particular reference to Syria);
• Community reconciliation – the relationship between international peacebuilding and social cohesion in divided communities in the UK;
• Monitoring and Evaluation in Religious Peacebuilding;
• Religious Peacebuilding and policy formation.
Please contact Dr Mark Owen (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about this project, or pass this opportunity to interested colleagues.
The studentship covers full-time academic fees for UK/EU students and a maintenance grant. Awards commence on 1 December 2015 and are for up to three years full-time. Renewal of the studentship each year is subject to satisfactory academic progress. The grant for 2015/16 is £14,057.
The deadline for applications is midnight Friday 4 September 2015 and interviews will be held between 5 October and 16 October 2015.
Students should apply to the University of Winchester using Application Form A and Form B. Form A includes a substantial project proposal in written form. Form B is an Ethics Release Form
