  • The sixth position is in international relations, and funded by five-year project entitled “Women and Diplomacy: Gender Norms, Resistance and the Work of the Diplomat”. The project is financed by a Wallenberg Academy Fellowship from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation to associate professor Ann Towns. The doctoral student is expected to write a PhD dissertation within international politics. While not a requirement, an interest in writing on the topics of diplomacy and/or gender is an advantage, as the student will be tied to the project just mentioned.
