Le département de sociologie de l’Université Maynooth d’Irlande annonce la mise en place possible d’une bourse de recherche postdoctorale sur le bouddhisme et les religions asiatiques.
Expressions of interest (not applications) are sought for possible appointments on a year-long cross-disciplinary project starting in October 2012 (contingent on grant decisions). The period of study is the late 19th – early 20th century.
The postdoctoral researcher will ideally have both Hindi-Urdu and Sinhala sufficient for archival research, training or experience in archival work and a background in religious studies or history, but candidates with cognate profiles may be considered. The appointment will be based in Ireland but involve 3 months work in S. Asia. The research assistant will ideally hold an MA or be pursuing a PhD in social movements or a related field of history, but candidates with
cognate profiles may be considered. The appointment will be based in Ireland but involve 2 months work in N. America.
Posts will be formally advertised in due course (subject to funding decisions to be announced in early August) but with a tight deadline. For further information and to be kept informed of advertisements please contact Dr Laurence Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please note that this is not a job advertisement and these positions may not be appointed if funding is not secured: this call for expressions of interest is made because of the tight timeframe if grant applications are successful.
