PhD in Computational Seismology, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Computational Seismology: Ph.D. opportunities at ETH Zurich, Switzerland

"High-performance computing in global and earthquake seismology: linking innovative Earth tomography to earthquake physics and seismic hazard"

We are seeking two highly motivated students to work within a recently funded 3-year research project in the domain of computational seismology. The aim of this project is to apply modern high-performance computing techniques to imaging of seismic sources and Earth structure, both from a forward modeling perspective and from the inverse problem. These two topics are tightly coupled since (i) they involve the same technical and computational issues, representing different applications of the same key computational tools and because (ii) the source and structural imaging problems are strictly related: seismic observations cannot provide a faithful image of Earth structure unless the location and mechanism of the sources are well known, while in turn the accuracy with which source parameters are determined depends on the quality of the three-dimensional Earth model used as reference in earthquake source inversions. The proposed work will also target comprehensive near-field ground-motion simulations in which we directly incorporate the new tomography results, with their uncertainties, augmented with stochastic-media parameterization at short scale lengths. Applicants must have a M.Sc. or Diploma in geosciences, physics, or computer sciences.

Strong analytical skills, experience in programming (C/C++, F90/95, MPI, UNIX shells, MATLAB) as well as expertise in data analysis and visualization are required. A solid knowledge of the English language (both oral and written) is mandatory, and the willingness to learn at least the basics of German is expected. Good interpersonal skills, the ability to work in a diverse team of several researchers and students, and the willingness to present the work at international
conferences and workshops are expected.

Our institute is a diverse environment emphasizing multidisciplinary interactions. A wide variety of graduate level courses in the Earth Sciences are offered. Please visit the Seismology and Geodynamics web page, at http://www.seg. ethz.ch/ or contact Dr. P.M Mai (mai@sed.ethz. ch) for further information. Complete applications must include statement of personal interests, curriculum vitae and names and addresses of two references, and should be sent to Dr. P.M. Mai (paper form accepted,electronic submissions preferred). Applications are accepted until Sept 15, 2007; interviews will be held in October 2007; starting date in early
2008.

ETH is an equal-opportunity and non-discriminating employer.

Integrative Physiology

Scholarship / Financial aid: a limited number of fellowships in the form of travel stipends will be awarded to qualified junior investigators
Date: May 14-16th, 2008
Deadline: Friday, March 14, 2008.
Open to: all interested


Announcement follows:

Scientists have recently made enormous strides toward elucidating the multiple functions of genes in adult animals. Remarkably, this progress has revealed unanticipated connections between organs. This progress allows us to now ask much broader questions related to the physiology of organisms and to analyze its impact on the molecular pathogenesis of degenerative diseases.

Thus, this is the ideal time to hold a meeting where presentations by top researchers will summarize where the field of integrative physiology is at, and how we can move the field forward.

This 2.5-day conference has been designed to explore these questions. In particular, this meeting will cover the genetic basis of the known functions of many organs, the identification of novel physiological functions for various organs and the definition of genetic cascades leading to frequent degenerative diseases such as metabolic syndrome, heart failure and osteoporosis.

Call for Abstracts

We invite you to submit an abstract for participation in a Poster Session. Deadline for abstract submission is Friday, March 14, 2008. To receive complete instructions for abstract submission, please send an email to IPHconf@nyas.org . Type the words Abstract Information in the subject line. (You do not need to type a message.) Instructions will be forwarded automatically. Any questions, call 212.298.8624.
Abstract submission does not guarantee a seat at the conference. You must register via the website or the fax form to ensure a seat.

Although the organizing committee has selected a group of outstanding speakers, ten additional speakers will be chosen from submitted abstracts to present during data blitz sessions at the conference. In addition, the meeting is planned so the posters will be an integral component of the meeting.

Fellowships
Subject to available funding, a limited number of fellowships in the form of travel stipends will be awarded to qualified junior investigators.

Oxford RSC Conference on Forced Migration/Refugee Studies

Scholarship / Financial aid: unknown
Date: 7-8 December 2007
Deadline: 14th September 2007
Open to: all interested

Announcement follows:

International Conference

7-8 December 2007, University of Oxford

CALL FOR PAPERS

This year the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) at the University of Oxford celebrates 25 years of pioneering research in the field of refugee and forced migration studies. The past quarter of a century, like many before it, has seen human displacement on an enormous scale, touching all continents and the lives of millions of people.
States, international organisations, and NGOs have often struggled to deal with the social, political and economic consequences of forced movement. Alongside these developments, the study of refugee movements and forced migration more generally has grown. Increasing numbers of academics from different disciplines have turned their attention to understanding displacement in its many forms and varieties, often with impressive results.

In December 2007, as the culmination of its 25th Anniversary, the RSC will hold a two-day international conference dedicated to bringing scholars together to take stock of the state of research on refugee and forced migration movements.

The conference will consider, in particular, how refugee and forced migration studies have progressed in the years since the RSC's inception and what contemporary challenges and future directions should inform the ongoing development of these areas of study.

Format

The first day of the conference will be dedicated to Conceptualising the Fields of forced migration and refugee studies.

Invited speakers will debate the recent turn towards conceptualising refugees as forced migrants and the relationships between forced migration and refugee
studies and the broader field of migration studies.

Papers are being sought for sub-plenary sessions related to questions of conceptualisation, particularly those that address the following questions:

- How should forced migrants and refugees be conceptualised in the current international context?
- What is the political, intellectual and sociological significance of the growing move to conceptualise the displaced as forced migrants rather than refugees?
- What are the costs and benefits of bringing forced migration studies and migration studies into closer alignment? To what extent, if at all, are their intellectual agendas complementary?

The second day of the conference will consider Key Future Research Areas in refugee and forced migration studies for the coming years. Papers and panel proposals are being sought on new areas of research that are likely to shed light on the causes and consequences of human displacement and the international legal and normative framework that governs national and international responses to refugees and forced migrants.

Paper and panel proposals on any theme related to forced migration will be considered. However, papers in the following panel areas would be of particular interest:

- new forms of forced migration and the evolution of violence and warfare
- refugees and the environment
- internal displacement and the challenges to normative and legal frameworks
- the future of international organisations responsible for refugees and forced migrants
- the changing international refugee regime and relations between the global North and South
- changing social and political constructions of the refugee and of those in need of asylum
- approaches to post-conflict reconstruction and refugee return
- extraterritoriality and the development of new practices of border control.

Proposal Submissions

Individuals interested in proposing additional panels should submit a title, the names of three or four participants and their paper titles, and an abstract of around 300 words describing the topic of their panel.

Individuals proposing to deliver a paper either in the sub-plenaries on Day 1, or within the panels indicated above on Day 2, should submit a paper title and abstract of 300 words. A short cv or biography (one page maximum) should accompany proposed papers and panels.

The selection committee will review proposals for both panels and papers using the following criteria:

- Relevance to the conference themes and panels
- Quality of scholarship
- Overall balance of papers in relation to the panels and sub-plenaries.

A selection of papers will be edited for a special issue of the Journal of Refugee Studies.

All submissions should be sent to Paul Ryder, Research Information Officer:
paul.ryder@qeh.ox.ac.uk, by 14th September 2007.

Proposed participants will be notified by October 14 whether or not their proposed paper/panel has been accepted.

The conference organisers are Professor Roger Zetter and Dr Matthew J. Gibney.

CfP: Warfare as Suicide

SUICIDE BOMBERS
AND WESTERN SOLDIERS

Some people claim to be astonished by contemporary terrorists who blow themselves up in the process of attempting to kill their enemies. However, are suicidal battle strategies absent from the record of Western warfare?

During the First World War (1914-1918) on the Western front (and on many other fronts), fighting was done out of trenches, with one enemy line facing the other. "Attack" occurred when long rows of soldiers got out of trenches and advanced through no man's land, hoping to cut through barbed wire, assault enemy trenches and break through the opposing line. Most attacks were unsuccessful and there was a substantial probability that an advancing soldier would be hit by an artillery shell or mowed down by machine-gun fire.

It is correct to draw a parallel between the behavior of soldiers during the First World War and contemporary suicide bombers? Is the fundamental dynamic the same? Or is a different dynamic at play?

Please write a thoughtful commentary responding to this question and send it to oanderson@ideologie sofwar.com.

We will publish the best commentary in our IDEOLOGIES OF WAR AND TERROR NEWSLETTER, which reaches 25,000 of the top scholars in the world in the fields of history, political science, anthropology, sociology, psychology and religious studies.

Historian Modris Ekstein describes the typical pattern of "battle" that characterized the First World War: "The victimized crowd of attackers in no man's land has become one of the supreme images of this war. Attackers moved forward usually without seeking cover and were mowed down in rows, with the mechanical efficiency of a scythe, like so many blades of grass."

The following are eye-witness accounts of typical attacks that occurred during the First World War. A German machine gunner wrote of his experience of a British attack at the Somme:

We were very surprised to see them walking. The officers went in front. I noticed one of them walking calmly, carrying a walking stick. When we started firing we just had to load and reload. They went down in the hundreds. You didn't have to aim, we just fired into them.

A similar mode of attack--with similar results--occurred at the Battle of Loos. Pushing through to the German line on the second day of battle, British troops crossed the road. Their numerical superiority was considerable, but several dozen German machine guns faced them. The German regimental diary describes what happened:

Ten columns of extended line could clearly be discerned. Each advancing column was estimated at more than a thousand men, offering such a target as had never been seen before, or thought possible. Never had the machine gunners such straightforward work to do nor done it so effectively.

They traversed to and fro along the enemy's ranks unceasingly. The men stood and fired triumphantly into the mass of men advancing across open grassland. As the entire field of fire was covered with the enemy's infantry, the effect was devastating and they could be seen falling literally in hundreds.

Nine-million men were killed during the First World War and twenty-one million injured. The vast casualties were the result of millions of men behaving not unlike contemporary terrorists behave: Allowing their bodies to be blown to bits as they attempted to blow up the bodies of their enemies.

The following report was written by British General Rees immediately after the massacre of the 94th Infantry Brigade of the 31st Division by the Germans on July 1, 1916:

They advanced in line after line, dressed as if on parade and not a man shirked going through the extremely heavy barrage, or facing the machine gun and rifle fire that finally wiped them out. I saw the lines, which advanced in such admirable order melting away under fire. Yet not a man wavered, broke the ranks, or attempted to come back.

In spite of the fact that the attack resulted in the slaughter of nearly all of his men, General Rees seems to have been gratified by the result:

I have never seen, indeed could never have imagined such a magnificent display of gallantry, discipline and determination. The reports from the very few survivors of this marvelous advance bear out what I saw with my own eyes: that hardly a man of ours got to the German Front line.

General Rees was proud of his men because they had demonstrated honor and nobility. They had been willing to die for their country.

As suicide bombers sacrifice their lives in the name of Allah, so soldiers of the First World War martyred themselves in the name of sacred entities given names such as France, Germany and Great Britain.

Call for PhD proposals: Migration, Diversity and Development

Call for PhD proposals in the field of Migration, Diversity and Development

The Institute for European Studies (IES) invites applications for the position of a PhD researcher for a maximum duration of four years (beginning in November 2007). The IES is a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). Its research focuses on the role of the EU as a global actor and on the interaction between the internal and external dimensions of EU policies and between EU policies and other international institutions and organisations.

More information on the institute and its research strategy can be found at http://www.ies. be/about/

The IES seeks proposals for PhD projects in a legal discipline or political science (or a related social science) that help us advance our knowledge about the driving forces and most promising policy responses to migration and diversity both in Europe and in the context of development. Comparative studies between Europe and the traditionally immigrant societies of the New World might be helpful in determining promising policy paths. Proposals addressing legal issues are particularly encouraged.

Rationale: As the Global Commission on International Migration noted in its 2005 report, �human mobility is not only becoming more complex in scope and scale, but is also becoming more complex in its nature�. Many of these complexities and the crosscutting factors involved are not yet well understood. Migration brings with it a wealth of issues concerned with human interaction especially in our large cities. These include differences of culture, legal tradition, religion and customs and the acceptance of such diversity amongst the local population. They also encompass practical matters such as how to deal with language in schools and how to integrate migrant children into the educational system, health issues, sensitivity in policing migrant neighbourhoods and other social and legal questions.


Proposals should have a clear conceptual foundation and could focus on one or several of the following issues that are of particular relevance in a European context:

* Integration of migrants into host societies. Although there is a considerable literature on strategies for integration of migrants, further study needs to be done on the effectiveness of government intervention as opposed to laissez-faire, policies for dealing with concentrations of migrants in European cities, the role of the private sector in job creation and social issues relating to isolation from family and culture.
* Policy formation regarding economic migration for employment and self-employment. Key aspects of this issue encompass the effects of declining demography and the increasing dependency ratio in Europe, the effects of economic migrants on employment levels, wage levels and other market factors such as the need for workers to fill jobs in the current favourable European economic climate and the desirability of immigration for wealth formation.
* The effectiveness of different types of visa regimes such as temporary work permits, high skilled and points based schemes, job matching, �circular� migration schemes in particular the effect of such schemes on the sending countries� development such as �brain gain� and remittances.
* Control of illegal migration. There is a lack of exploration of the success or failure of strategies currently being employed (notably regularisation or amnesties for illegal migrants, carriers� liability or criminal penalties for employing illegal workers which are largely ignored) as well as the factors determining this success or failure.
* Responses to mass migration. There has been little examination of the effects of armed conflict on migration and of the best methods of dealing with mass influx of migrants created by human action or natural disasters. A current example is the effect of conflict (such as in Iraq or Afghanistan) which is politically and militarily supported by potential receiving European states on the migration issues of nationals of the countries in conflict.
* Relationship between human rights and migration law. There is a need to further explore the contradictions between human rights law and the perceived right of nation states and the EU to control access to their territory. This can, amongst other questions, include issues relating to the Geneva Convention 1951 on the right to asylum, the extension of states� control of immigration beyond their borders (for example by stationing liaison officers at foreign airports or processing asylum applications outside their territory) or data protection matters in relation to electronic control systems. There are potential conflicts between rights under the Geneva Convention and rights under the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms which might be explored in the light of decisions in the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice.
* The effects of European trade and aid policies on migration. One area of inquiry might be how the EU can modify its policies in the various trade negotiation fora a such as the WTO or the Cotonou Agreement in order to mitigate possible effects of these policies on migratory patterns. The same reasoning applies to aid policy in particular how migration issues can be best incorporated into development projects in the light of the various EU communications on this issue.

An important criterion for the selection of the successful candidate will be that a qualified supervision and promotion of the PhD can be ensured at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). Applicants are therefore encouraged to identify potential promoters at the VUB and to indicate these in their application, if possible.

Remuneration: PhD bursary or equivalent (appr. 1500 Euros net per month)

Duration: Four years (subject to annual reviews) as of 1 November 2007

Applications including (1) a detailed Curriculum Vitae, (2) a clear PhD proposal (max. 10 pages), (3) a list of publications, (4) a letter of motivation and (5) two letters of recommendation should be sent to the Academic Director of the IES (address below), email: ies@vub.ac.be by 30 September 2007.

CfP for edited volume "The global 1989", LSE workshop

The global 1989

Call for a workshop to be held at LSE in early summer 2008. The workshop aims to generate a collection of papers for publication in an edited volume to mark the twentieth anniversary of 1989.

Organisers:
Centre for International Studies, LSE -
www.lse.ac.uk/ collections/ CIS/
Cold War Studies Centre, LSE -
www.lse.ac.uk/ collections/ CWSC/
BISA Historical Sociology and IR Working Group -
www.historical- sociology. org/
Research Network 1989 -
www.cee-socialscien ce.net/1989/

The ramifications of '1989' are not limited to Europe. Of course, the collapse of the Soviet empire, the revolutions of 1989, and the dissolution of state socialism in Europe were important events in their own right. But their impact spread much further afield, generating a period of uncertainty and turbulence in world politics which is still being felt today.

In anticipation of the twentieth anniversary of 1989, we invite contributions to a workshop focusing on how to explain and interpret 'the global 1989'.

In particular, we are interested in thinking through the 'time' and 'space' of 1989, looking at:

The place of 1989 in world historical perspective: How significant is 1989? How does it compare to comparable landmark events, moments and processes? What are the principal global legacies of 1989?

The impact of 1989 around the world, in terms of: a) invigorating debates about a range of global issues from the extension of US power to exploring new forms of interventionism, the changing role of the EU, the rise of China, the impact of global terrorism, and the emergence of culture as an important site of geopolitical conflict; and b) stimulating novel forms of inter-state and intra-state politics, including the extent to which regions have becoming fully fledged actors in their own
right.

Proposed format
. Anticipated number of participants: 8-12
. Deadline for expressions of interest, including an abstract for a proposed
contribution: 30 September 2007
. Draft version of 7-8,000 words ready for circulation among workshop participants: 30 March 2008
. Workshop at LSE: May/June 2008
. Deadline for revised submissions: 30 August 2008
. Publication: 2009

Contacts
For more information about this event, please contact George Lawson (g.lawson@gold. ac.uk), Convenor of the Historical Sociology and IR working group, and Chris Armbruster, Executive Director, Research Network 1989 (chris.armbruster@ eui.eu).
