Job Opportunities

PROFECI

 

The PROFECI Team at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is looking to recruit an Arabic speaking Post-Doctoral Fellow in an ERC project about the social dynamics of projecting possible futures.

If you are a native Arabic speaker, or fluent in the Arabic language, and are interested in working on an exciting project for your postdoc studies (starting September 2020), this could be a terrific opportunity for you.

We are an international, interdisciplinary team headed by Prof. Keren Tenenboim-Weinblatt at the Hebrew University’s Department of Communication and Journalism. The project, PROFECI, examines how scenarios about the outcomes and implications of significant political events are formulated, and how people act upon these expectations. The Post-Doctoral researcher will focus on the social construction of projections related to the war in Syria and the role of the media in this process. The position is fully funded (up to 2 years).

Suitable candidates should hold (or be close to completion of) a PhD in Communication, Middle Eastern Studies, International Relations, or related fields.  Background in research on Syria and experience in text analysis are an advantage.

Applications should comprise a statement of motivation (1 page), CV including list of publications, two recommendation letters (one of them should be from the PhD supervisor), as well as one relevant publication (published or under review). Applications should be sent as PDF to Bat Sheva Hass, ERC coordinator, at bath@savion.huji.ac.il.

Review of applications will begin on January 30th, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled.
