A post-doctoral research associate post at Durham’s International Boundaries Research Unit.
Durham University seeks to employ a full-time Research Associate to contribute to the work of IBRU, an interdisciplinary consultancy, training, and academic research entity based in Durham University’s Department of Geography. IBRU combines core competencies at the intersection of political geography and comparative and public international law with critical perspectives on borders and bordering. The Research Associate will contribute to ongoing research, conference, and publication projects being undertaken or proposed by IBRU as well as initiating her or his own projects that fall within IBRU’s thematic remit. The Research Associate will contribute to the development and preparation of research grant applications, journal articles and other academic outputs. Additionally, depending on the Research Associate’s skills and experience, the Research Associate may contribute to IBRU’s consultancy and training activities in boundary delimitation, demarcation, and dispute resolution. IBRU is particularly interested in candidates who would complement existing staff interests in maritime regions and other domains that incorporate extraterritorial spaces and activities, as well as in forging links between political geographic and international law perspectives. Interviews will be held in mid-late February, with a start date as soon as possible thereafter. This is a two-year, fixed-term appointment.
