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

                Dear colleagues,



We’d like to share this *call for candidates*. Our research group, CareNet
, is part of Pyrolife
, an ITN project that funds the
training of 15 PhD candidates in Europe, on *integrated wildfire management
*from an *interdisciplinary perspective*.


The recruitment process is now open and at the UOC we have* two vacancies*
for doing research on *Engaging communities at risk *(PhD 14) and *Inclusive
risk communication* (PhD 15). These are the details

.



We are especially interested in candidates with:



· Previous training in social sciences (sociology, anthropology,
social psychology, political sciences, social/cultural geography,
educational sciences, media studies...). Candidates with previous training
in environmental sciences willing to receive training in social sciences
are also encouraged to apply.

· Knowledge of the literature in the fields of political ecology,
environmental anthropology, disaster studies, and science and technology
studies.

· Previous experience/training in community engagement, ethnographic
research and/or participatory approaches.

· Previous experience, or interest in, working with groups considered
as most vulnerable in the event of a disaster (e.g. children, youth, women,
people with disabilities, elderly, migrants and indigenous communities).



This call requires international mobility: we are looking for *candidates
that have not spent more than 12 months in Spain in the last 3 years*, and
that are willing to come to Barcelona to do their PhD. It's a *fully funded
position* (with a quite good salary for living in Barcelona) that also
includes two secondments abroad and several training activities.



The project also seeks to foster gender equality and diversity within
wildfire research: so, we'd like to have female candidates and/or from
other minority groups in academia.



The PhDs will become part of both of our research group and the PyroLife
network.



The deadline for applications is* 13th December 2019.*



Please circulate this call to anyone who might be interested. Thanks in
advance!
