Zurich: Two anthropology PhD positions in research project on GAP/Turkey

We invite applications for two Ph.D. Research Fellowships (social anthropology) in an SNSF funded research project:

Development and Trust in Upper Mesopotamia: The social impacts of GAP (Güneydoğu Anadolu Projesi)

The fellowships are for three years, starting prospectively Feb 2012, including one year of ethnographic field research in Turkish Mesopotamia in parts differently affected by GAP ventures. The design of the project envisions to have a number of locally grounded field sites that reflect different stages of the implementation of GAP. It will include sites where the flooding of villages and agricultural fields has happened some time ago as well as more recent cases and those that are still waiting for the onset of development. In each of these the outcomes and consequences for the population are expected to differ significantly.

Candidates are required to hold an MA in anthropology or a related discipline and are expected to enroll in a PhD program at the University of Zurich. Fluency in Turkish (ideally also Kurdish and/or Arabic) is expected.

Applications should enclose a cover letter describing their background and motivation, Curriculum Vitae and their MA certificate or equivalent.

Salary will be according to SNSF Funding Regulations.

Deadline for applications: Dec. 1, 2011

Applications in electronic form to: Anna Racca <anna.racca at>, from where further informations may be obtained.
