The AURA project at the Department of Culture and Society, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship. The appointment begins on 1 September 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter.
 
Applications for one-year positions are also accepted.
 
The position
 
The position is affiliated with Aarhus University Research on the Anthropocene (AURA), an interdisciplinary project for the study of emergent environments on a human-disturbed earth. The project works across the conventional divisions between the humanities and the sciences and so far includes scholars with backgrounds in philosophy, biology and anthropology. Our research objects include multi-species interactions, landscape assemblages, and global movements of species and environmental projects. In this time of rapidly accelerated human disturbance of the Anthropocene, AURA explores unintended consequences and multi-species coordination.
 
We are looking for an innovative scholar with a background in anthropology, environmental history or related disciplines who can contribute to this project and who can demonstrate international commitment and ability to collaborate with key areas of national and international research within the AURA research area. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to participate in AURA activities such as research, lectures, seminars and workshops, as well as in supervising students.
 
Research
 
The successful candidate will have an individual research project relevant for AURA. The postdoctoral fellow will also be expected to work collaboratively with the AURA team and engage actively in interdisciplinary team research. The application should contain a research proposal for the postdoctoral fellowship, highlighting how the project will complement the research agenda of AURA.
 
Qualifications
 
Eligible candidates for this position hold a PhD degree in anthropology, environmental history or allied fields.
 
The successful candidate must document extensive fieldwork and/or archival experience as well as an international research profile.
 
Candidates should be interested in collaborative, interdisciplinary work and must formulate a concise description of their proposed research project (up to 5 double-spaced A4 pages), which should be feasible to be completed in the time frame of the position.
 
Please upload maximum five samples of your scholarly output.
 
The application must be submitted in English.
 
Non-Danish speaking applicants are expected to learn sufficient Danish to participate in the daily business of the department within two years.
