JOURNAL/CFP- Beyond Brezhnevism - Cahiers du Monde russe Call for Papers for an upcoming special issue

Topic: Beyond Brezhnevism- -Growing Autonomy for Social Groups and Assimilation of Socialist Values

The image of "real Socialism" as an age of "stagnation" is gradually disappearing from studies of the Soviet Union. Indeed the clear cultural and social changes of the Brezhnev era are now part of a revised historiography. Despite the immobility of a political leadership unable to bring any serious reform to a drifting economic and social system, as political repression and ideological control slackened, Soviet citizens created, revived and occupied areas of autonomy.

At the same time, the socio-cultural processes that flourished in 1964-1982 had their own timing that preceded or extended beyond the precise dates of Brezhnev's rule: this concerns urban planning, the development of tourism, communications and media, and greater access to higher education. The study of these already reported phenomena deserves to be reviewed on the basis of the written and oral sources to which the researcher now has access. Similarly, the recent emphasis on the spread of cross-border patterns of consumption and thought and the increase in international exchanges places the geographical bounds of the Soviet Union in a wider context.

Cahiers du Monde Russe wishes to challenge "Brezhnevism" in two ways, as the incarnation of "stagnation" and as a strictly delineated temporal and spatial framework, unsuited to the study of the profound social, cultural and economic changes that prepared the way for the upheavals of the late 1980s and the collapse of the USSR.

Titles and proposals submission deadline: June 1, 2012

Short project abstracts (500 words maximum) in French, English, Russian or German should be submitted to bb.cmr@ehess. fr. Please, indicate your name, affiliation institution, and email address. The editorial committee will make a short list.

Manuscripts submission deadline: April 1, 2013

The relevant issue is due to be published in the first half of 2014. Under CMR's academic publishing rules, the articles received (60,000 signs maximum, space characters and notes included) will be submitted anonymously to two reviewers for assessment.

Editors: Marc Elie, Isabelle Ohayon

For additional information, please contact: Marc Elie, Isabelle Ohayon: bb.cmr@ehess. fr or Valérie Mélikian, editorial secretary, Cahiers du Monde russe

PhD Scholarships in Australia (Biogeochemistry and Hydrology) The Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry at Southern Cross University (Lismore, Australia) is offering two PhD scholarships valued at $23,000 per year. The scholarships are tax free to both Australian and international students. Tuition and fees will be waived.

The two projects should focus on the following:
1) Influence of submarine groundwater discharge on carbon cycling in coastal waters, supervised by Dr. Isaac Santos
2) Investigating the transformation and fate of dissolved organic carbon and nitrogen in coastal sediments using stable isotope tracers, supervised by Dr Joanne Oakes.

Field sites for PhD projects can be negotiated, and include hydrothermal fields, sand beaches, mangroves, coastal embayments, estuaries, and coral reefs. Shortlisted candidates will be requested to prepare a 2-page research proposal and to perform a telephone interview. Starting dates can be negotiated, but ideally the candidates should start in August 2012. Candidates from non-English speaking countries may be required to demonstrate English language proficiency. International cooperation will be encouraged.

The Australian Research Council recently ranked the geochemistry group at SCU the highest rank of 5 for “outstanding performance well above world standards”. The Australian education system differs from the American system in that no course work is required for PhD students, allowing the student to engage in full time research from the start. Our Centre is equipped with cutting-edge instrumentation, has full technical support, and has well-funded projects all over Australia and overseas.

For applications, please email your preferred supervisor with a two-page CV by 30 May.

A doctoral grant in Cancer Epidemiology and Neuroepidemology, Karolinska Institutet

Karolinska Institutet has a vacancy forA doctoral student with doctoral grant in Cancer Epidemiology and Neuroepidemology( 2 positions)
Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics
Description of research group and project

The Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics is among the biggest departments of epidemiology in Europe with special focus on increasing our knowledge of the aetiology for different diseases. Our department consists of researchers, doctoral students, biostatisticians, data collectors and database administrators as well as administrative personnel, in total approximately some 250 staff. The department is situated in campus Solna. Further information can be found atwww.meb.ki. se.

We are now looking for a total of two phD-positions divided into two different research areas: Cancer Epidemiology and Neuroepidemiology.

Our breast cancer epidemiology group comprises 2 professors, 4 postdocs, and 4 PhD-students. The group has a vast international collaboration and frequently interacts with European, Singaporean and US groups. The present thesis will aim at acquiring a comprehensive picture of breast cancer prognosis. In Sweden, one woman in eight will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime and approximately one fourth of breast cancer patients will die from their disease, while many more will suffer from treatment related complications. There are both host (patient) and tumor characteristics that define breast cancer prognosis, as well as treatment response and complications. Therefore our aim is to study both patient and tumor determinants of breast cancer prognosis.

Our neuroepidemiology research group studies genetic and environmental risk factors for the development of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), myasthenia gravis and Parkinson’s disease; and the research group consists of researchers from both Karolinska Institutet and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in the United States. The present thesis will for the first time systematically investigate the relationship between metabolic disorders and ALS and improve our understating of the potentially shared aetiology of metabolic disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. The role of metabolic disorders on cardiovascular diseases has been broadly investigated, while a potential role of metabolic disorders on neurodegenerative diseases including ALS is less well studied.
Duties and responsibilities
Cancer epidemiology:
Under supervision, the PhD student will be responsible for literature review, data analysis, result interpretation, scientific article writing and data presentation. We will study the long term prognosis among women treated for breast cancer using registry data. Next we want to study inheritance of breast cancer prognosis as well as tumor specific markers for disease progression. Finally we will explore a possible association between mammographic density, site of metastasis, and prognosis. Your supervisors have a broad expertise in cancer epidemiology, clinical oncology, biostatistics and molecular techniques.

Under supervision, the PhD student will be responsible for literature review, data analysis, result interpretation, scientific article writing and data presentation. We will 1) assess the associations between diabetes/BMI and ALS; 2) examine whether metabolic disorders share a high comorbidity correlation with ALS; and 3) estimate predictive value of medication use profile on ALS risk. The project includes register data, lab and clinical data. Your supervisors have a broad expertise in neuroepidemiology, medicine, and environmental epidemiology. During the PhD training, the student will spend one-year research sojourn in the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).
Eligibility/ Qualifications
To be eligible, an applicant must
1. hold a Master’s (second-cycle) degree
2. have completed course requirements of at least 240 HECs, of which at least 60 at second-cycle level, or
3. have otherwise acquired essentially equivalent competence in Sweden or abroad.

Those who meet the requirements for general eligibility before July 1st, 2007, i.e. had completed a programme of higher education for at least 180 HEC or the equivalent, will continue to do so until the end of July, 2015.

Selection is made of qualified applicants on the ground of their ability to benefit from doctoral (third-cycle) education. Karolinska Institutet applies the following assessment criteria:
- Documented subject knowledge of significance to the research project
- Analytical skills confirmed by a scientific dissertation or the equivalent
- Other documented knowledge/experienc e of potential significance to doctoral (third-cycle) education in the subject
