The fellowships are open to truly outstanding candidates with distinguished curricula and proven ability to communicate fluently in English. We expect candidates with studies in the social sciences (sociology, anthropology, political science, economics), environmental sciences, planning, ecology, geography, architecture and contemporary history. Candidates from other disciplines might apply if adequately justified by their curriculum and motivation letter. Interdisciplinary experience and previous work on political ecology and related approaches are highly appreciated, as is civic engagement with the social issues dealt by the network. As the PhD must be completed within the 3 years of the fellowships we anticipate that successful candidates will already hold a Masters degree and have some experience with social science research methods.
1) Applicant must not have a PhD.
2) Applicant should not have more than 4 years of research experience. The years that count are the ones after obtaining the degree (e.g. a masters) which would formally entitle one to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the research training is provided.
3) Applicant must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment (i.e. the 12 months immediately prior to and including September 2012).

Scholarship Open for International Students: Yes

Description: ENTITLE will train 17 researchers in the emerging field of Political Ecology, giving them the theoretical, analytical and complementary skills that will make them employable in jobs related to environmental policy analysis and advocacy. Research and training are framed around five key clusters concerned with the analysis of: environmental conflicts; environmental movements; natural disasters; changes in co-production and the commons; and environmental justice and democracy. Research is based on a series of empirically-based investigations of a geographically and thematically diverse set of case-studies. The researchers of the network will collaborate to offer a theoretical and methodological framework for the empirical research and will synthesize the results of the individual cases in a series of publishable outputs.
