HM King Abdullah II of Jordan Generations for Peace
Sport and Peacebuilding Post-Doctoral Fellowship
Georgetown University Conflict Resolution Program, Department of Government
The Conflict Resolution Program at Georgetown University is pleased to announce a call for applicants for the HM King Abdullah II of Jordan Generations for Peace, Sport and Peacebuilding Post-Doctoral Fellowship. The fellowship, sponsored by HM King Abdullah II and Generations for Peace, will support innovative research on the intersection of sport and peacebuilding.

Over the past decade, there has been increasing interest in the role of sport in peacebuilding. Numerous initiatives have been established that engage youth in diverse settings in positive engagement; skills building; and dialogue, while addressing the challenges that they face through sports. There is extensive research about the positive impact of participating in sports on the social and intellectual development of youth. Sports, such as soccer and basketball, provide youth with an opportunity to learn the skills of collaboration and teamwork and provide an outlet for positive expression of identity.
While many organizations are pioneering the use of sport in peacebuilding, there is a significant need to provide greater training in the area and conduct applied research regarding the design, implementation, and impact of such programs.
The fellowship is initially for one year, but subject to satisfactory performance renewable for a second year. The fellowship will begin in August 2012.
Candidates will be expected to:
Conduct and publish independent research;
Provide technical assistance to organizations in the field of sport and peacebuilding;
Teach one course per year on sport and peacebuilding in the Georgetown M.A. Program in Conflict Resolution;
Mentor GU students in the field; and
Conduct at least one public talk each semester on sport and conflict.
Candidates for the fellowship will need to focus their research in one of the following areas:
Theory and practice of sports based approaches to individual and collective behavior change in the context of peacebuilding
Measuring the impact or effectiveness of sport and peace building programming
Assessing curriculum and training in sport and peace building
Exploring how to more effectively integrate peace building into sport based programming
Candidates will receive:
A competitive post-doc salary (and benefits);
Funding for field research and conference participation; and
Two research assistants.
Selection Criteria:
Completion of Ph.D. within the past four years;
Demonstrated interest/expertise in youth, sport, and peacebuilding;
Record of previous research/publications
Demonstrated potential to have an impact in the academic and/or policy community.

Background on the Georgetown Conflict Resolution Program: (
Using the foundation of Georgetown’s considerable talents in government, psychology, business, law, and international relations, the Conflict Resolution Program has rapidly developed an impressive national and international reputation. Housed in the Department of Government, the two-year multidisciplinary Master of Arts program accepted its first cohort of students in the 2005-2006 academic year. The program currently enrolls about 70 students from around the world. The program is training the next generation of researchers and practitioners with the essential skills and multidisciplinary knowledge to effectively analyze and intervene in the complex conflicts challenging the world. A particular emphasis of the program is on conflict mainstreaming, which helps students integrate conflict resolution into diverse sectoral programming areas such as health, education, youth programming, and environment.
Background on Generations for Peace: (
Founded by HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein of Jordan, Generations For Peace (GFP) is a global initiative that contributes to the world’s need for greater tolerance and understanding between conflicting communities; ultimately leading to a demand and desire for peace. Launched in Jordan in April 2007, Generations For Peace uses sport to empower leaders of youth from hostile regions, and to act as agents of change to help instill tolerance; understanding; and ultimately peace.

Course description:

The European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis aims at providing a high quality education in designing and assessing public policies targeted to the agricultural and food sector as well as the rural environment. This European Master responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies either in a functioning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.

The European Master offers a two-year academic curriculum with integrated and advanced theoretical, methodological and empirical courses in economics and quantitative methods as well as in agricultural, food and environmental sciences, agricultural and trade policy, environmental and natural resource policy, rural development policy and agribusiness management and market analysis.

To connect theory and methodology to practice, a problem solving project is developed and presented as a master thesis at the end of the two-year curriculum.

The European Master is jointly organised by five leading European educational and research institutions: the Corvinius University of Budapest (CUB) in Hungary, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Sweden, the Rheinische-Friedric h-Wilhelms Universität Bonn (UBonn) in Germany, the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Spain. These five partner universities are recognised worldwide for the quality of their educational programme and scientific achievements in agricultural, environmental and economic sciences. The required 120 ECTS credit points are structured into three blocks: a minimum of two semesters of studies (55 ECTS) at a first partner university, as well as two semesters of studies (60 ECTS) at a second partner university, and two joint summer schools (5 ECTS) at partner universities. The language of instruction and examination is English for most of the courses in three partner universities while it is either French at UCL or Spanish at UPC for most of the courses. The Master degree is awarded as a double degree from the two home and host universities.

This European Master is accessible to candidates holding a bachelor degree or a recognized equivalent academic degree with a minimum of 180 ECTS or 3 years university study from an accredited institution, with sufficient undergraduate training in economics and agricultural or environmental sciences, with an excellent scholastic average, and with fluency in English but also French or Spanish if attending either UCL or UPC respectively.

Recipients of this European Master are qualified to understand the fundamentals of public policies oriented to the agricultural and food sector, rural areas and natural resources, develop and use quantitative methods to perform rigorous socio-economic and environmental assessment of these public policies, and provide sound and relevant policy recommendations for a more sustainable development of this sector and rural areas. They are qualified to take responsibilities in international, national and regional agencies, non-governmental organisations, consultancy firms, professional organisations and private companies.

Aarhus University Scholarship

The honey bee colony is a prime example of a natural homeostatic system. Energy, water and proteins are collected and spent while the temperature inside the hive is kept stable, and the colony keeps adjusting to the seasons, the weather and the available resources. Research has been carried out on all of these aspects but only few mathematical models of the honey bee colony have been published, and none of them include the homeostatic mechanisms which make the system unique.

A mathematical model of honeybee colony dynamics would be an important tool to achieve a better understanding of colony functioning. The improved understanding would result in better guidelines and decision tools which would help beekeepers to keep bee colonies healthy and to realize their full pollination potential. The student will be responsible for developing such a model and will be carrying out supporting empirical studies in Denmark and USA.
Reference Number: 5688
Study Subject: Honey bee colony dynamics model, computer software, ecology, evolution
Provided By: Aarhus University, Denmark
To be undertaken at: non-Australian institutions.
Level: Post Graduate (Research)
