  • How to Make the Most of a Post Doc or Junior Researcher Position

    For many recent PhDs and other doctoral graduates, the first step in an academic career is at least one, if not two or three post doc or junior researcher positions. Regardless of which department you work in, such a position is a great way to make connections, publish your research, add experience to your CV and get a feel for life as an academic. Yet, some recent graduates feel so overwhelmed by the dissertation process that they use a post doc as something akin to academic downtime. While this might be tempting, it is important to remember that the beginning of your career can set the tone for years to come. In today's highly competitive academic market, having multiple publications and presentations on your CV within the first few years of your career can help you immensely in landing a desired position down the road.

Fifth International Conference on Religion and Spirituality in Society

THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY IN SOCIETY

University of California at Berkeley
Berkeley, USA
16-17 April 2015

Dear Delegate,

The International Advisory Board is pleased to announce the Call For Papers for the Fifth International Conference on Religion and Spirituality in Society being held at the University of California at Berkeley in Berkeley, USA from 16-17 April.

SPECIAL CONFERENCE FOCUS:

"Social Movements and Faith"

Religious commitments are, as often as not, social commitments. In addition to its usual range of themes, this year's special focus of the Religion and Society knowledge community is the relation of religion to social movements, ranging from movements for nominally "progressive" or "liberal" social change, to "fundamentalisms" whose religious practices are often explicitly or implicitly social and political. The conference will ask the questions: Under what conditions and to what extent are religious communities social activists, either in their doctrine or their practices? How do religious communities support or align with other social movements?

The 2015 meeting will feature a special focus on this provocative subject. We welcome open debate, discourse, and research from participants that center on this special topic, as well as any other themes or issues relevant to religion and spirituality in society.

CONFERENCE THEMES:

Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, focused discussions or colloquia are invited that address the broader themes listed below. In addition to the special focus, paper presentations will be grouped into one of the following categories for presentation at the conference:

Theme 1: Religious Foundations
Theme 2: Religious Community and Socialization
Theme 3: Religious Commonalities and Differences
Theme 4: The Politics of Religion
Theme 5: Social Movements and Faith

Proposals for in-person presentations should be submitted by 16 FEBRUARY 2015 (title and short abstract). Proposals submitted after this day will be accommodated in non-themed sessions at the conference or are eligible for community membership registrations (no attendance to the conference is required with community membership presentations).

For more information on the conference including confirmed plenary speakers as well as details on submitting your proposal and registering for the conference, visit:

The Vi's most recent core university member, the College of Europe, encourages Vi researchers interested in European studies to apply as visiting scholars. Visiting scholars are typically professors who would like to spend their sabbatical leave at the College of Europe or senior researchers who wish to come to the College of Europe for a period of time with the objective of conducting research for a (post)-doctoral project. The stay at the College can be from one month up to an entire academic year.

The application letter in either English or French should be addressed to the Rector of the College of Europe, who will submit it to the Academic Council for consideration. The application should specify
the motivation, research interest and preferred time of stay and be accompanied by a detailed CV. Each visiting scholar should preferably obtain an affiliation with one of the study programmes at the Bruges Campus, Belgium, or at the Natolin (Warsaw) Campus, Poland.

GDN is also accepting entries for its Next Horizons Essay Contest 2014.
