[attach=1] As a part of a research project on Globality and Planetary Security, a PhD scholarship is available at the research unit on Defence and Security, Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS), and the Department of Political Science and Public Management, University of Southern Denmark (SDU). The successful applicant will follow the PhD programme at SDU, but the primary workplace will be at DIIS in Copenhagen.

The scholarship is available for appointment for a period of 3 years as of May 1st, 2011 or soon thereafter. The PhD scholarship must be completed over a 3-year period and presupposes enrolment in the PhD programme in Political Science at the Faculty of Social Sciences at SDU.

Globality and Planetary Security is concerned with the articulation of total threats to the planet, particularly in relation to nuclear weapons and climate change. The project studies (i) the sociological, historical and conceptual underpinnings of globality and planetary security, and (ii) investigates the social and political consequences of invoking planetary (in)security in relation to total threats. The project is inspired by recent security theory, contemporary social theories of risk and modernity and critical theory.

The PhD project should focus on how notions of globality and planetary security inform or have informed debates about the nature and management of nuclear weapons in international politics. The project should relate this research to debates about contemporary and future nuclear policy options.
