The Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre of Excellence Centre for Urban Network Evolutions (UrbNet) hereby invites potential postdoctoral fellows to submit abstracts for papers to be given at the centre’s “Open Audition” 21 January 2016. This is a one-day event with short papers, discussion of research ideas and introduction to the centre’s work and team. The centre is currently recruiting a number of junior and senior researchers, and the open audition event will give interested scholars the possibility to visit the centre and showcase their research projects and develop ideas together with researchers from the centre in order to explore possible collaborations.

We are looking to integrate projects into the centre’s work, which intersect firmly based humanities questions and problems concerning urban development and networks, but which do so through the integration of methods from natural sciences. Projects should understand the agendas of how to approach, examine and understand the phenomenon of urbanism in a new light by also letting humanities be informed by the rapidly developing techniques in the natural sciences. The centre’s work focusses on the regions from Northern Europe over the Levant to the East Coast of Africa. It involves empirical material from a number of existing excavation projects, as well as material already excavated and concerns both theoretical and methodological issues. 

The deadline for submission of applications to participate in the open audition was Monday 7 December 2015, and eight candidates were invited to come and present their research.

For more information, contact Rubina Raja (rubina.raja@cas.au.dk) or  Søren M. Sindbæk (farksms@cas.au.dk).

Information for speakers

UrbNet will cover travel costs up to €400, as well as accommodation for two nights. The centre will host a speakers' dinner 21 January 2016.
