PhD Scholarship: Explaining Transnational Jihad

The Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) is announcing a three-year, fully funded PhD Scholarship on the topic of transnational jihad. The project is expected to start 1 September 2019. The PhD Candidate will be part of the larger research project “Explaining Transnational Jihad – Patterns of Escalation and Containment” funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

The overall project aims at advancing our understanding of how jihadist conflicts become transnational and under what circumstances they can be contained. The project also aims at developing an interdisciplinary analytical framework, which combines micro- and macro level approaches to jihadism, drawing from both Religious Studies, Security Studies and Peace & Conflict Studies.

The project has four main components 1) a quantitative examination of transnationalization processes drawing from among others the Religion and Armed Conflicts (RELAC) dataset/UCDP hosted by Uppsala University, 2) comparative case studies of the mechanisms of escalation and de-escalation of jihadist conflicts in Syria/Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Mali/Niger, Pakistan/Afghanistan focusing particularly on the movements of Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, the Taleban, and Boko Haram, 3) securitization analyses of the macro-level conflict structures that transnational jihadist movements tap into, and finally 4) sociotheological worldview analyses of potential changes in jihadist conflict imagery during transnationalization processes.

The applicant is expected to formulate an individual project that can contribute to component 1. and 2. The applicant must have obtained a master’s degree in a relevant field, preferably with a background in Peace and Conflict studies and meet the general requirements for being accepted as a PhD Candidate at a Danish university. The candidate must have demonstrated experience with working quantitatively. Among other qualifications, we prefer candidates who are familiar with the RELAC/UCDP conflict data, have worked on the topic of Islamism/jihadism, have the ability to collaborate broadly and to communicate research findings competently in English.

The PhD Candidate will be enrolled in the Copenhagen Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen, but will be based at DIIS in Copenhagen. We shall appoint two supervisors, one from the University of Copenhagen and one affiliated to the project at DIIS. The PhD Candidate will be expected to participate actively in the workshops and seminars of the project group, participate in mandatory PhD courses and selected international conferences. The candidate is also expected to spend four months in Washington DC to conduct interviews with USIP program experts/managers.

Terms of employment

The expected start date is 1 September 2019. The employment is limited to three years and expires automatically at the end of this three-year period. The scholarship and start date are conditional upon the signed ERC grant agreement.

Remuneration and other job conditions follow the general agreement between AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations) and the Danish Ministry of Finance, local collective agreements at DIIS as well as the 1 July 2013 Danish state protocol on PhD Candidates.
