[Department Website][APSA elisting(requires membership)] Drucie French Cumbie Chair of Conflict Analysis and Resolution The Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) at George Mason University, Arlington, Virginia is inviting applications for the Drucie French Cumbie Chair of Conflict Analysis and Resolution. The starting date is the end of August, 2006. The Institute seeks a recognized scholar with strong credentials in research, theory, and teaching. We are particularly interested in candidates whose scholarship has clear relevance to practice and who has theory-guided practice experience in the field of conflict analysis and resolution. The occupant of the French Cumbie Chair will participate fully in the Institute’s mission of analyzing and helping to resolve serious social conflicts internationally and in the United States. Appointment to the French Cumbie Chair will be made at the level of full professor. Existing research and practice interests of the Institute include a focus on the themes of globalization and conflict; race, ethnicity, and conflict; the relations among conflict, human rights, and justice; conflict and the media; intercultural dialogue ; religious aspects of conflict; and the conflict-generating impact of social change, as well as on problems of conflict analysis and resolution generally. Hence, a demonstrated interest and experience in one of these sub-fields will be advantageous, although candidates may also offer to focus and teach on other themes (e.g., prevention, humanitarian intervention, urban problems, class conflicts, public policy formation, constitutionalism and minorities in multiethnic states, and environmental disputes). The candidate should be prepared to interact skillfully with a talented, diverse group of students and to mentor students undertaking masters and doctoral research and writing. The successful applicant should have a distinguished record of publication and experience in obtaining research and program grants. The review of applications will start on January 15, 2006; the position will remain open until it is filled. Applicants should send a letter of application, inclusive of names and contact information for three potential referees, as well as their curriculum vitae and examples of research and publications to Pamela Harris, ICAR Search Coordinator, George Mason University, 3401 Fairfax Drive, MS 4D3, Arlington, VA 22201.
