The fellowship is funded by the European Union s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 813383 as part of the Innovative Training Network SeaChanges: Thresholds in Human Exploitation of Marine Vertebrates . About SeaChanges SeaChanges is an international doctoral training network spanning archaeology and marine biology, which offers 15 fully-funded, salaried PhD studentships (ESRs) across seven institutions in six countries. The network takes a long-term perspective on human exploitation of marine vertebrates, with projects covering species from herring to sperm whale, timescales from decades to millennia, and all of Europe s seas and beyond. About your project ESR15 - Exploitation and collapse of the Black Sea marine fauna The archaeological record of the Black Sea region exhibits a great variety of economic and cultural practices dating back millennia. Marine resources appear to have played an important role in economy and diet, as documented by the recovery of small cetaceans and key fish species at archaeological sites from the Chalcolithic to Byzantine ages. The cetaceans inhabiting the Black Sea (harbour porpoise, common dolphin and bottlenose dolphin) are recognized as separate subspecies of special management and conservation concern, with IUCN listings as endangered or threatened. These have all been subject to periods of extensive hunting, and are now affected by fisheries bycatch and consequences of ctenophore invasion, undermining their trophic base. Along similar lines, overexploitation has decimated fish stocks, and led to the extermination of others. How did past marine resource use and environmental changes affect Black Sea cetaceans and key fish species? Did it reduce gene flow or adaptive genetic variation? Did cumulative pressures lead to trophic alterations, and how have this shaped the current marine ecosystem? To address these questions, the project will review the Black Sea zooarchaeological record and modern ecological data of the Black Sea, apply genomic, proteomic and isotopic analyses to track changes in the genomes, demography and trophic interactions of Black Sea cetaceans, turbot, and anchovies in response to major shifts in environment and in human cultural and economic practices. This will serve to identify past and present pressures on marine species, understand their past and present cultural and economic role, and provide recommendations for their conservation and management. Genomic and proteomic analyses will be conducted at the principal host UCPH (Denmark), the zooarchaeological record will be reviewed via secondment at IZNASU (Ukraine) and dietary insights and predator-prey interactions will be addressed via secondment at CSIC (Spain).

The researcher will be part of the larger research project Explaining Transnational Jihad Patterns of Escalation and Containment funded by the European Research Council. The Project The overall project that the postdoc researcher will be part of aims at advancing an 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. With its focus on macro-level conflict structures, the ambition is to develop a new framework for thinking about containment, providing an alternative to both the micro-level countering discourses embraced by much of the radicalization research, and the containment thinking that stems from the treatment of jihadist conflicts as civil wars in the peace and conflict literature. The overall 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 particularly expected to contribute to component 2 and 4 with an emphasis on investigating the escalation and containment dynamics that relate to theological interpretations and religious worldviews. The applicant must have obtained a PhD degree in a relevant field applicants with a background in theology, religious studies and or Middle Eastern Studies as well as linguistic skills in Arabic will be preferred. Proficiency in written and oral English is required. General Information The position is aimed at applicants who have obtained their PhD within the past three years.

330040511Postdoctoral fellow: EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy (EU3D)Robot Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy (EU3D) - https: www.eu3d.uio.no research index.html - is a new research project funded by the European Union s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Directed from the University of Oslo, the project involves a consortium of ten institutions across Europe, among them the University of Copenhagen (UCPH). The Department of Political Science at UCPH which co-directs EU3D Work Package 2 - Problematic forms of EU internal differentiation , has a project vacancy for a two-year Postdoctoral researcher starting on 1 February 2020. The many crises and challenges that the EU has faced over the last decade have exposed the EU s vulnerability to volatile markets, an increasingly unpredictable global geopolitical scene, and increased domestic opposition. EU3D focuses on differentiation, which is not tied to any specific direction of change but encompasses both integration and disintegration. All modern political systems are differentiated the EU distinctly so. The problem is that the EU that emerged from the financial and refugee crises is associated with less democracy and more dominance. EU3D understands dominance as arbitrary rule. Dominance can be an unintended consequence of action. EU3D sets out to specify the conditions under which differentiation is politically acceptable, institutionally sustainable, and democratically legitimate. Equally important, EU3D specifies the conditions under which it is not, in other words when conditions of dominance prevail. Work package 2 (WP2) of EU3D is concerned with the identification and assessment of those forms of EU differentiation that are most closely associated with dominance. WP2 s research will seek to understand the sources of these forms of differentiation and place them into historical context. To that end, WP2 provides a diagnosis of the present post-crisis situation landscape of internal differentiation in the EU, and assess which of these forms is most closely associated with dominance. WP2 is particularly interested in teasing out the extent to which crises (especially the Eurozone crisis and the refugee crises) have acted as external differentiating shocks and or the extent to which current types of differentiation have pre-crisis roots. More specifically, the successful applicant will be expected to work on the question of whether external shocks to the EU system have been generative of new forms of dominance within the EU, or whether recent crises have amplified aspects of illicit hierarchy within the EU structure. Of particular interest here are the role and sources of non-majoritarian forms of decision-making, their relationship to recent crises and or their roots within European integration more broadly. The work will involve the analysis of a range of textual and interview sources. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the organization of a workshop in mid-2020. He or she will co-edit a special issue of the resulting papers and be expected to contribute peer-reviewed journal articles in key areas of WP2. He or she will also contribute to the wider work of EU3D, including participation in relevant workshops and conferences. Qualifications The position is aimed at applicants who have obtained their PhD in political science or a related field. The applicants should have proven research experience and academic publications in political science and or cognate fields or. Furthermore, the applicants should have demonstrable expertise in one or several of the following areas: Comparative and or international political economy, with an interest in the history of ideas and their institutional expression EU studies, including the history and theory of European integration, EU institutions and governance Qualitative (and, where relevant, quantitative) methods as applied to this project Considerable weight will be accorded to the ability to conduct independent research, scientific excellence, critical and creative thinking as well as the ability to work across sub-fields and disciplines and be a genuine team-player. Experience of teaching and active participation in the international research community, such as organizing workshops, seminars and academic conferences is seen as a merit. Responsibilities The Postdoctoral fellow is expected to: Engage in and participate actively in the development of EU3D and in particular the academic activities associated with WP2, including collaborate in refining the project design and methodology and further developing the theoretical framework Collect, code and analyze relevant empirical material (e.g. observations, interviews, official documents, other qualitative data).

‘EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy’ (EU3D) - https://www.eu3d.uio.no/research/index.html - is a new research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Directed from the University of Oslo, the project involves a consortium of ten institutions across Europe, among them the University of Copenhagen (UCPH). The Department of Political Science at UCPH which co-directs EU3D Work Package 2 - ‘Problematic forms of EU internal differentiation’, has a project vacancy for a two-year Postdoctoral researcher starting on 1 February 2020.

The many crises and challenges that the EU has faced over the last decade have exposed the EU’s vulnerability to volatile markets, an increasingly unpredictable global geopolitical scene, and increased domestic opposition. EU3D focuses on differentiation, which is not tied to any specific direction of change but encompasses both integration and disintegration. All modern political systems are differentiated; the EU distinctly so. The problem is that the EU that emerged from the financial and refugee crises is associated with less democracy and more dominance. EU3D understands dominance as arbitrary rule. Dominance can be an unintended consequence of action. EU3D sets out to specify the conditions under which differentiation is politically acceptable, institutionally sustainable, and democratically legitimate. Equally important, EU3D specifies the conditions under which it is not, in other words when conditions of dominance prevail.

Work package 2 (WP2) of EU3D is concerned with the identification and assessment of those forms of EU differentiation that are most closely associated with dominance. WP2’s research will seek to understand the sources of these forms of differentiation and place them into historical context. To that end, WP2 provides a diagnosis of the present post-crisis situation landscape of internal differentiation in the EU, and assess which of these forms is most closely associated with dominance. WP2 is particularly interested in teasing out the extent to which crises (especially the Eurozone crisis and the refugee crises) have acted as ‘external differentiating shocks and/or the extent to which current types of differentiation have pre-crisis roots.

More specifically, the successful applicant will be expected to work on the question of whether external shocks to the EU system have been generative of new forms of dominance within the EU, or whether recent crises have amplified aspects of illicit hierarchy within the EU structure. Of particular interest here are the role and sources of non-majoritarian forms of decision-making, their relationship to recent crises and/or their roots within European integration more broadly. The work will involve the analysis of a range of textual and interview sources. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the organization of a workshop in mid-2020. He or she will co-edit a special issue of the resulting papers and be expected to contribute peer-reviewed journal articles in key areas of WP2. He or she will also contribute to the wider work of EU3D, including participation in relevant workshops and conferences.
