Call for 2 PhD Candidates, Pyrolife (ITN): "engaging communities at risk" and "inclusive risk communication"

                Dear colleagues,
<br>
<br>
<br>We’d like to share this *call for candidates*. Our research group, CareNet
<br>, is part of Pyrolife
<br>, an ITN project that funds the
<br>training of 15 PhD candidates in Europe, on *integrated wildfire management
<br>*from an *interdisciplinary perspective*.
<br>
<br>
<br>The recruitment process is now open and at the UOC we have* two vacancies*
<br>for doing research on *Engaging communities at risk *(PhD 14) and *Inclusive
<br>risk communication* (PhD 15). These are the details
<br>
<br>.
<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>We are especially interested in candidates with:
<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>·      Previous training in social sciences (sociology, anthropology,
<br>social psychology, political sciences, social/cultural geography,
<br>educational sciences, media studies...). Candidates with previous training
<br>in environmental sciences willing to receive training in social sciences
<br>are also encouraged to apply.
<br>
<br>·      Knowledge of the literature in the fields of political ecology,
<br>environmental anthropology, disaster studies, and science and technology
<br>studies.
<br>
<br>·      Previous experience/training in community engagement, ethnographic
<br>research and/or participatory approaches.
<br>
<br>·      Previous experience, or interest in, working with groups considered
<br>as most vulnerable in the event of a disaster (e.g. children, youth, women,
<br>people with disabilities, elderly, migrants and indigenous communities).
<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>This call requires international mobility: we are looking for *candidates
<br>that have not spent more than 12 months in Spain in the last 3 years*, and
<br>that are willing to come to Barcelona to do their PhD. It's a *fully funded
<br>position* (with a quite good salary for living in Barcelona) that also
<br>includes two secondments abroad and several training activities.
<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>The project also seeks to foster gender equality and diversity within
<br>wildfire research: so, we'd like to have female candidates and/or from
<br>other minority groups in academia.
<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>The PhDs will become part of both of our research group and the PyroLife
<br>network.
<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>The deadline for applications is* 13th December 2019.*
<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>Please circulate this call to anyone who might be interested. Thanks in
<br>advance!
