University of Edinburgh – Social and Political Science Postdoctoral Research Fellow for “Grey Zone” Project

Deadline: 20th August 2015

We are seeking two Postdoctoral Research Fellows to work with Dr Mihaela Mihai on an ERC-funded project entitled ‘Illuminating the “Grey Zone”: Addressing Complex Complicity in Human Rights Violations.’ Situated at the frontier between political science, political theory, history, literature and cinema, this project seeks to shift the focus of debates in Transitional Justice by focusing on the grey zone of collaborators, bystanders and indirect beneficiaries of injustice.
You will have experience of conducting high quality academic research in a field relevant to this project, and should be willing to engage with a variety of literatures beyond the narrow confines of your own research field.
These two posts are both full-time and fixed-term for 48 months. The posts are available from 1st January 2016.
