USA: Post-doctoral Fellowship in Biological Conservation Research

*David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowships* **

The Society for Conservation Biology is pleased to solicit applications for the David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowship Program. These Fellowships enable outstanding early-career scientists based at a United States institution to improve and expand their research skills while directing their efforts towards problems of pressing conservation concern for the United States. The Program especially encourages individuals who want to better link conservation science and theory with
pressing policy and management applications to apply. We envision that the cadre of scientists supported by the Smith Fellows Program eventually will assume leadership positions across the field of conservation science. Fellows are selected on the basis of innovation, potential for leadership and strength of proposal.

Smith post-doctoral Fellows will be awarded two years of support for applied research in the field of biological conservation. Fellowship applicants must have received their doctorate within the last five years, demonstrate high potential for innovative research and leadership in their field, and propose a research plan that creatively and effectively addresses a pressing conservation question. Each Fellow is mentored by both an academic sponsor who encourages the Fellow's continued development as a conservation scientist, and a conservation practitioner who helps to connect the Fellow and her/his research to practical conservation challenges. Fellows must secure sponsorship from an academic sponsor at an institution in the United States well-suited to carrying out the proposed research. Each fellow will choose a field mentor with expertise and experience in "on-the-ground" application of conservation science and who is associated with a government agency, nongovernmental organization, or other conservation organization. Applicants who arrange for mentors and research sites before submission of their application provide the review panel with strong evidence of initiative and leadership, and help to ensure that proposed research is
relevant to conservation practices. Fellowships are spent primarily at the sponsoring academic institution or at the location best suited to conducting the research; up to four weeks each year will be spent in professional development training.

Smith Fellows in 2011 will be selected for their leadership potential, and their ability to conduct innovative applied research that promises to improve the effectiveness of conservation practice. Emphasis is placed on research that will advance conservation science. Research approaches may include comparative studies, synthetic analyses across sites, experimental or observational studies, applied modeling, or any combination.

Individuals with outstanding, innovative skills in research and communication are encouraged to submit Fellowship applications with research proposals aimed at the above or any other issue relevant to conservation biology. The Program expects to select four Fellows in January 2011 for appointments to start sometime between March-September 2011. Fellowship awards include an annual salary of $50,000, benefits, and generous travel and research budgets.

*Eligibility and Award Terms*

Eligible individuals must have completed their doctorate within the past five years or by the time the award is made in 2011. Applicants who have not yet completed their doctorate must clearly indicate on the application the date the degree is expected.

Each Fellow will receive an annual salary of $50,000 plus benefits, with the post-doctoral position expected to run for two consecutive years. In addition to the stipend, each Fellow receives a travel budget of over $8,000 and a research fund of more than $32,000 across the 2-year fellowship period.

Fellows will spend up to four weeks per year during their fellowship attending orientation and training events. These offerings provide opportunities to cultivate professional networks and to gain better understanding of applied research needs. Fellows will participate as a group in three or more Program-sponsored meetings, conferences, or professional development events each year. Each Fellow also will consult with their mentor(s) to identify and secure additional opportunities to
learn about problems and issues in applied conservation. Beyond these obligations, Fellows are expected to pursue the research outlined in their proposal full-time.

Fellows will be employed by the sponsoring academic institution. The Program will provide up to 5% of the total indirect costs as overhead reimbursement to this institution. Second-year renewal of the fellowship is contingent upon satisfactory progress (including but not limited to participation in orientation, training, and professional development events) as well as timely completion of detailed interim and first-year activity reports.

*Deadlines and Contact Information* All application materials, including letters from sponsors and references, must be received by Society for Conservation Biology to smithfellows@ conbio.org by 5pm EST on *September 24, 2010*. The selection process begins immediately after this date. There are no extensions to this deadline and incomplete applications may be disqualified. Questions about the application process may be directed to the Smith Fellows Program at smithinfo@smithfell ows.org .

More details about the application and the selection process are available at http://www.conbio.org/smithfellows/.

CfP: Journal of Central Asian and the Caucasian Studies

* Journal of Central Asia and the Caucasian Studies (JCACS) is a refereed journal and published twice (Winter and Summer) a year.

* JCACS publishes scholarly articles in Turkish and English from all over the world. The Editorial Office of the JCACS is in the International Strategic Research Organisation (ISRO) central building in Ankara, Turkey. However the journal is an independent publication in terms of scientific research and the editors decide its publication policy.

* JCACS focuses on legal, political, sociological, cultural, social, religious,
anthropological and economic studies regarding the Central Asia, Caucasus and neighbouring states' (Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, China, Mongolia, Russia) and regions' (Black Sea, South Asia, Middle East, Far East) relations with the Central Asia and the Caucasus.

* The journal encourages interdisciplinary studies. Manuscripts submitted to JCACS should be original and challenging, and should not be under consideration by another publication at the time of submission.

* We also welcome short pieces on recent developments and review articles.

* Articles submitted for consideration of publication are subject to peer review. The editorial board and editors take consideration whether submitted manuscript follows the rules of scientific writing. The appropriate articles are then sent to two referees known for their academic reputation in their respective areas.

The Editors and referees use three-step guidelines in assessing submissions:

i) Literary quality: Writing style, usage of the language, organisation (paragraphing, syntax, flow etc.)

ii) Use of references. Referencing, sources, relationships of the footnotes to the text.

iii) Scholarship quality: Depth of research, quality; contribution, originality of the contribution (new and creative thought) and plausibility of the author's argument.

Upon the referees' decision, the articles will be published in the journal, or rejected for publication. The review process lasts from five to 15 weeks. Questions regarding the status of submissions should be directed to the Editor by e-mail at turgutdem@yahoo. co.uk or hasanozertem@ gmail.com.

PhD positions in mobile networking, IIT-CNR, Pisa, Italy

The Ubiquitous Internet Group of IIT-CNR (Institute for Informatics and Telematics of the National Research Council), Pisa, Italy opens 2 fully funded PhD Student positions in the framework of the FP7 FET-AWARE RECOGNITION project due to start on 1st October 2010.

The PhD students will be supervised by Marco Conti and Andrea Passarella.

RECOGNITION aims to develop innovative, groundbreaking self-awareness
paradigms for the Future Internet, looking primarily at content-centric networking aspects. The massive scale of content the Future Internet will have to manage and the long tail of user interests require novel content management solutions. Specifically, RECOGNITION will identify, design and evaluate the self-awareness mechanisms to support a global network where the legacy Internet will be replaced by a more fluid content-centric infrastructure where data are often located on mobile users' devices possibly disconnected from the network, and where content access, rather than connectivity, will be the key design goal.

The PhD thesis will focus on one or more of the following topics:
- definition of self-awareness mechanisms for heterogeneous (mobile/fixed) content-centric networks
- content dissemination in massive scale heterogeneous (mobile/fixed) networks
- social/human inspired self-aware networking paradigms
- self-aware content management, indexing and acquisition in massive scale heterogeneous (mobile/fixed) networks.

The ideal candidate for these positions holds a MSc (or an equivalent degree) in Computer Science or Computer Engineering with a solid background on computer networking and mobile computing. Experience either in systems design or in analysis (applied to mobile networks) will be positively considered. Experience in simulation of computer networks will be a plus. Good knowledge of English is also desired.

Closing date for applications: 15/09/2010 (or as soon as the positions are filled)
Expected start date: October 2010

Each application must contain the following documents:
- a detailed CV in English
- a list of relevant academic courses (with grades)
- a list of 1 or 2 references with contact addresses
- a 1-page research statement, indicating the experience/interest with
respect to the proposed topics

Applications should be sent electronically to

m.conti@iit. cnr.it and a.passarella@ iit.cnr.it

with subject "application for PhD positions - RECOGNITION" .

For more information, please contact

Marco Conti
Research Director
IIT-CNR, Pisa, Italy
m.conti@iit. cnr.it

Andrea Passarella
Researcher
IIT-CNR, Pisa, Italy
a.passarella@ iit.cnr.it

The Researchers of the Ubiquitous Internet Group of IIT-CNR feature vast expertise in the area of mobile networking, distributed systems and performance evaluation. They participate in several European Projects on opportunistic, delay-tolerant, mesh, sensor networks, such as SOCIALNETS (http://www.social-nets.eu), Haggle (http://haggleproject.org), EU-Mesh (http://www.eu-mesh.eu/), as well in recently funded EU Projects such as FP7-AWARE RECOGNITION and FP7-FIRE SCAMPI.

They have coordinated the FP5 MobileMAN project, which defined, developed and tested a campus-wide, self-organizing, and totally wireless network. The UIG group is actively involved in the European initiatives related to the Future Internet, both through participation in cutting-edge, exploratory research projects, and through the participation of its members to consulting groups of the European Commission. In this framework, and with specific reference to the open position, UIG welcomes inter-disciplinary research approaches exploiting complex network models of social structures in the design of Future Internet architectures.

Training: Leadership si Managementul Echipei

Institutul pentru Comunicare si Cultura are placerea sa va invite la training-ul "Leadership si Managementul Echipei", pe care il organizeaza in 30 si 31 iulie 2010.

Training-ul dureaza 10 ore si se va desfasura la Cluj Community Center din centrul Sigma (Str. Republicii nr. 109, Cluj-Napoca). Programul este urmatorul:
Vineri, 30 iulie: orele 16:00 - 20:00 si
Sambata, 31 iulie: orele 10:00 - 16:00.

Adeseori, oamenii presupun ca leadership-ul se rezuma la a fi sef si la a le spune celorlalti ce sa faca. Departe de a fi un proces unilateral, leadership-ul constituie, in fapt, o relatie dinamica, in care reciprocitatea dintre lider si grup influenteaza performanta atat la nivel individual cat si organizational.

Leadership-ul este un fenomen prezent la toate nivelurile sociale si ierarhice. La locul de munca sau in cadrul familiei, aptitudinea de a insufla o viziune, de a transforma idealuri in actiune si actiunea in rezultat este atribuita liderului.

Acest e-mail contine atasate afisul oficial al evenimentului si formluarul de inscriere. Pentru mai multe informatii va rugam sa accesati pagina web dedicata evenimentului. ( http://www.icc.org.ro/2010/06/training-leadership-si-managementul-echipei/ )

CfP: Ethnic Politics Workshop, Washington, 15-16.10.2010

*Ethnic Politics Workshop*

/Call for Proposals/

The Ethnic Politics Workshop will be held during October 15-16, 2010, at The George Washington University (GW). The conveners seek to promote new approaches to the study of ethnic politics in the social sciences by bringing together a small interdisciplinary group of social scientists to exchange ideas, brainstorm, and provide constructive criticism of each other’s works in progress.

We envision the possibility of future meetings and hope that joint projects may result from the workshop. We seek social scientists (Ph.D. candidates near completion and beyond, based in North America) whose work: (a) demonstrates substantial
theoretical innovation grounded in empirical research; (b) has ethnicity as a central focus (or “dependent variable”), not simply as one factor among many; (c) has the potential to lead to generalizable and falsifiable arguments; and (d) reflects (potential for) a long-term research program rather than a one-off project.

Interested researchers should submit a CV and a one-page description of the research project idea they would like to present at the workshop, explaining how it fits
into their longer-term research program. These should be sent to caitlin@gwu. edu by August 15, 2010. Applicants will be notified of decisions by early September. Transportation and accommodation costs will be covered by the organizers. The meeting is funded by a grant from the Dean of GW’s Elliott School of International Affairs.

Open Society Fellowship

The Open Society Fellowship supports individuals seeking innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges. The fellowship funds work that will enrich public understanding of those challenges and stimulate far-reaching and probing conversations within the Open Society Institute and in the world.

A fellowship project might identify a problem that has not previously been recognized, develop new policy ideas to address familiar problems, or offer a new advocacy strategy. Fellows should take advantage of the considerable intellectual and logistical resources of the Open Society Institute and expect to contribute meaningfully to OSI's thinking in return.

In evaluating each proposal, the selection committee weighs three factors: the applicant, the topic of the project, and the work product.

Proposals are accepted year round, but those received by *April 28, 2010*, will be evaluated by *July 21, 2010*. Proposals received by *September 7, 2010 *will be evaluated by *November 26, 2010*.

The Applicant

The Open Society Fellowship chooses its fellows from a diverse pool of applicants that includes journalists, activists, academics, and practitioners in a variety of fields. Applicants should possess a deep understanding of their chosen subject area and a track record of professional accomplishment.

The fellowship seeks "idea entrepreneurs" from across the world who are ready to challenge conventional wisdom. Successful applicants will be eager to exploit the many resources offered by OSI and be prepared to engage constructively with the global OSI community. Ideal fellows are specialists who can see beyond the parochialisms of their field and possess the tenacity to complete a project of exceptional merit.

The Topic of the Project

The Open Society Institute works to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. Among OSI's core areas of concern are human rights, government transparency, the promotion of civil society and social inclusion. Project themes should cut across these areas of interest. Applicants are encouraged to explore this website to acquaint themselves with the panoply of themes
and geographic areas that fall within OSI's purview http://www.soros.org/about/overview. Below are some possible topic areas that fellows may explore in the coming years:

* Global migration and the rights of displaced minorities
* Organized crime, corruption, and state failure
* The economic crisis and its effect on open societies
* Movement-building and state repression in societies affected by climate change
* The impact of new technologies on citizen access to information and justice
* The link between governance, transparency, and economic development.

Open Society Fellows are currently investigating the corrosive effect of the global arms trade on democratic institutions, the challenges of community organizing in rural America, and new techniques of outreach and communication with victims of mass atrocity.

What these projects share is a zeal for problem-solving, the confidence to test hypotheses against observed reality, and an impatience with conventional or clichéd thinking.

Applicants who are uncertain whether their topic fits within OSI's organizational interests are invited to submit a brief *letter of inquiry*, accompanied by a CV, before proceeding with the online application process. That letter of inquiry should be addressed to: OSFellows@sorosny. org .

Complete fellowship guidelines are available at
http://www.soros.org/initiatives/fellowship/grants.

Alchemical Traditions—Call for Papers

Spanning the world’s artistic, scientific and religious traditions, alchemy has embraced and continues to embrace the complete spectrum of existence. From metallurgy to metaphysics, alchemy engages the technical, fine and hieratic arts in order to provide a living phenomenology of the one, single, elusive process that acts through all things. Ultimately—in its guise as « ars transmutationis »—alchemy penetrates to the heart of the transfiguring spiritual intensity that underpins the perfection of life, from mineral to man.

Despite this profoundly all-embracing purview, however, alchemy continues to be conceived as either proto-chemistry or proto-psychology. The present volume seeks to redress this false dichotomy by exploring alchemy as a quintessentially integral phenomenon. Opening wide the full spectrum of alchemy—from east to west, in history and practice, from antiquity to the avant guard—our aim is to penetrate as deeply as possible, within the limits of a single volume, into the rich practical and experiential traditions of the alchemical mysterium.

What we are looking for:

To complete this œuvre, we seek high quality contributions on both historical and practical alchemy. By historical alchemy we refer to specific religious, temporal or cultural traditions, such as Egyptian, Chinese, Judaic, Hellenistic, Christian, Indo-Tibetan, Islamicate, Medieval, Renaissance, Early Modern, Modern, Post-Modern and Avant Guard alchemical currents. By practical alchemy we refer to living, experimental and experiential traditions of alchemy, from metallogenesis, spagyrics, parachemistry, macrobiotics and iatrochemistry, through to theurgy, phenomenology, psychology, theatre and film. Perspectives from the world’s esoteric lineages—Pythagoreanism, Taoism, Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, Theurgy, Tantra, Sufism, Rosicrucianism, Shamanism and Perennial Theosophy—are also germane. Last but not least, it should be emphasised that poetic, artistic, literary and other arational expressions of the alchemical mysterium are just as strongly encouraged as the artisinal and hieratic modalities of alchemy.

Interested parties are invited to contact the editor for more information:

Aaron Cheak
theperfectblack@gmail.com

Deadline for abstracts, concepts and initial drafts is 31 October 2010. This is the date that chapter authors and topics will be finalised, however, material should be submitted as soon as possible. The final submission date is tentatively scheduled for 31 December 2010, just after the northern winter/antipodean summer solstice. Full submission guidelines are available upon request.

Further details will be made available as they arise via Primordial Traditions.

PhD position available - Lund University

PhD studentship in Geobiosphere Science at the Department of Earth and Ecosystem
Science, Faculty of Science
Reference Number: NPA 2010/107
Last application date: 23 August 2010
Day of appointment: 1 October 2010
Information: Daniel Conley,
tel. +46 46 2220454
E-mail: daniel.conley@ geol.lu.se

Worker's unions at Lund University: OFR, SACO, and SEKO Project description: Fluvial transport of amorphous silica The PhD project will investigate the transport of amorphous silica by rivers to the world's oceans. Amorphous silica (ASi) mostly originates from biological uptake by plants. Plants take up dissolved silicate and deposit it as an amorphous form of silica called phytoliths. Phytoliths and ASi formed in soils enters aquatic ecosystems through litterfall and erosion. In addition, diatoms in aquatic ecosystems also take up dissolved silicate and deposit it as ASi.

There is a wide range of concentrations found in rivers depending upon the soils and vegetation in the watershed, and algal growth in lakes and rivers. The amount of ASi transported by rivers to the world's oceans is poorly known. The Ph.D. student will investigate the flux of ASi from some of the world's largest rivers. The student will participate in several expeditions to sample rivers for a variety of constituents, including ASi.

Some of the expeditions will be carried out through collaboration in on-going studies. The goal of the project is to establish a global estimate of the amount of ASi inputs from rivers. This project is financed by the Faculty of Sciences at Lund University.

Qualifications: The applicants are expected to hold a university degree (preferably MSc. or equivalent) in natural sciences. A degree in subjects like Geology, Geochemistry, Geography or Aquatic Ecology is preferable. Documented experience in field studies is an advantage. Experience of scientific publication in English is an asset. The position is guaranteed for four years.

The starting date is negotiable, but the project should commence 1 October. Applications for this position should include a letter stating the reasons for
applying and brief statements about ambitions in relation to the project. The application should also include a letter with motivation on why the student wants to undertake a Ph.D., a CV with general personal information and details of previous study/work record.

Additional information: The position is restricted to four years. Formal regulations for postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Science are provided at: http://www.science.lu.se/o.o.i.s/11729

PhD studentships can only be offered to applicants who are granted admission to
postgraduate studies. In the selection procedure, the ability to complete the education according to the study plan for postgraduate studies is considered.

5 PhD Scholarships in ICT, Aalborg University, Denmark

PhD Stipend

Position No.
562/06-8-10049

At the Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine 5 PhD stipends are available within the general study programmes Wireless Communication and Computer Science. The stipends are open for appointment from September 15, 2010 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Job description
Electronic Systems/Computer Science/Mathematica l Sciences

5 Mobility Stipends in ICT

The PhD stipends are offered via a grant to three departments at Aalborg University; Department of Electronic Systems, Department of Computer Science, and Department of Mathematical Sciences. The grant from The Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation covers 5 full financed PhD stipends. The driving hypotheses of the projects are the following:

A. Hypothesis: Adaptive signal processing algorithms implemented as embedded software can be used to linearize a highly nonlinear but energy efficient power amplifier core to yield an overall linear and energy efficient amplifier. The applicant needs competences in one or more of the areas: RF electronics and modelling, embedded systems, IC design, FPGA design, power amplifier design, and RF simulation techniques. Contact: Professor Torben Larsen (E-mail: tl@es.aau.dk, phone: +45 2020 6856).

B. Hypothesis: Bayesian statistical methods based on a unified approach for divergence approximations can be used to improve the performance of data receivers for mobile communications where the challenge is to make a decision on what data was originally sent by a transmitter or a group of transmitters, when the data is corrupted due to interferences, e.g. generated by other transmitters. Desired competences in one or more of the areas: Data receiver design, wireless communication, signal processing, and Bayesian statistics. Contact: Professor Bernard Fleury (E-mail: bfl@es.aau.dk, phone: +45 9940 8629).

C. Hypothesis: Quantitative model checking, simulation, static analysis and compiler optimizing methods may be used for designing and implementing optimal mappings and scheduling of embedded applications onto multi-core, multi-processor and networked architectures. Desired competences in one or more of the areas: Computer science, embedded systems, multi-core architectures, and verification and scheduling. Contact: Professor Kim Guldstrand Larsen (E-mail: kgl@cs.aau.dk, phone: +45 9940 8893).

D. Hypothesis: Advances in spatial and computational statistics are capable of improving the foundation for understanding and exploiting data-dependent characteristics of spatio-temporal indexing and query processing techniques for the mobile Internet, thus resulting in more effective techniques. Desired competences in one or more of the areas: computer science and statistics – in particular interest in the mobile Internet and spatial and computational statistics. Contact: Professor Jesper Møller (E-mail: jm@math.aau. dk, phone: +45 3057 3127).

E. Hypothesis: Utilizing simultaneous coverage from multiple wireless access devices and exploiting knowledge about typical spatio-temporal communication patterns obtained through spatio-temporal data mining techniques, it is possible to predict which links can be kept in a low power state at certain times, while still allowing data packets to be routed in the mobile core network, and thereby reducing the overall power consumption very significantly. Desired competences in one or more of the areas: databases, data mining, and/or spatio-temporal data management, combined with an interest in wireless communications. Contact: Professor Torben Bach Pedersen (E-mail: tbp@cs.aau.dk, phone: +45 9940 9975).

If you want to apply for more than one PhD position you must submit an application for each position. Please indicate in the comment box which stipend (A, B, C, D or E) you are applying for. Applications sent by email will not be accepted.

The projects are supported by three departments as mentioned earlier; Dept. of Electronic systems, Dept. of Computer Science, and Dept. of Mathematical Sciences. For all projects two supervisors will be appointed – a main supervisor and a co-supervisor. The two supervisors will always be from different departments. It is the plan to have some joint activities for all 5 PhD students – for example, a summer school is planned.

Requirements:
Since the PhD stipends have been funded by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation with the plan to improve mobility, you are not allowed to have a Masters degree from Aalborg University. As long as your qualifying masters degree has been received from any other university than Aalborg University you can apply – also if you have your degree from another Danish university.

The application:
The applicant must submit an application for each stipend he or she wishes to apply for. The application must include the following:

1. An application letter stating the motivation of the applicant to apply for precisely this stipend, applicants background, other relevant information etc. This letter must also include a list of submitted material.

4. A maximum 2 page (11 point Calibri / 2 cm margins all sides) proposal for the research to be pursued in the project containing:
a. Suitable title.
b. Brief background for the project.
c. Initiating problem.
d. Short state-of-the- art in the field with use of a few key references.
e. Novel ideas to solve the proposed problem (in the form of bullet points).
f. Main challenges to work on in the project (in the form of bullet points).
g. A rough sketch of a time and work plan.
h. Up to 5 key references.

PhD stipends are allocated to individuals who hold a Masters degree. PhD stipends are normally for a period of 3 years. It is a prerequisite for allocation of the stipend that the candidate will be enrolled as a PhD student at the Doctoral School of the Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine, in accordance with the regulations of Ministerial Order No. 18 of January 14, 2008 on the PhD Programme at the Universities. According to the Ministerial Order, the progress of the PhD student shall be assessed every six months. It is a prerequisite for continuation of salary payment that the previous progress is approved at the time of the evaluation.

The qualifications of the applicant will be assessed by an assessment committee. On the basis of the recommendation of the assessment committee, the Dean of the Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine will make a decision for allocating the stipend.

For further information about stipends and salary contact Ms. Helen Kjerstein Kristensen, The Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine, phone: +45 9940 7373.
