Applications are invited for 2 postdoctoral positions under the Asian Dynamics Initiative (ADI) at the University of Copenhagen. One position will be based at the Faculty of Humanities, the other position at the Faculty of Social Sciences. Expected date of appointment is 1 August or soon thereafter.
The University of Copenhagen has launched the ADI to strengthen its position as a major strategic source of knowledge regarding Asia. As a cooperative venture between the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences, the ADI aims at creating a cross-disciplinary platform for existing and new research, for teaching and for developing new competencies in relation to the social, economic, political, cultural, and religious complexities found in Asia.
Seven research fields have been identified as anchor points for cutting edge research and teaching between the Social Sciences and the Humanities. It is expected that the candidates have a research project that relates to at least one of the designated research fields of the ADI which are:
1. Knowledge in transit
2. Security at global and local levels
3. Borders, territorialisation and regionalization
4. Belonging, citizenship and identities
5. Local responses to global challenges
6. The economics of the Asian challenge
