Closing Date: March 1, 2021.
Join a vibrant team of researchers on a major research project “Understanding Civil War from Pre- to Post-War Stages: A Comparative Approach” funded by a £1.2 UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellowship awarded to Dr Anastasia Shesterinina, Lecturer in Politics and International Politics.
The research project, which starts in January 2021, aims to investigate civil war across the pre-war, war and post-war stages of conflict through a fieldwork-intensive qualitative comparison of a range of cases to understand and inform policy on this dominant form of armed conflict. The PhD student will be a core member of the research team, which will include the PI, Dr Shesterinina, as well as three post-doctoral fellows. The new Center for the Comparative Study of Civil War will be established to host and support the project at the University of Sheffield.
