      the building of a research cluster in Exeter, bringing together
      academics from a range of Schools into the multi-disciplinary ‘Exeter
      Centre for Ethno-Political Studies' (EXCEPS).

      Sociology, Psychology, Geography, Area Studies, Language and Literature.
      We are particularly keen to receive applications from applicants with

      Other possible areas of interest would be (a) quantitative modeling of
      conflict, (b) gender issues in conflict environments, (c) group identity

      regulation, (e) ethno-politics in urban environments, and (f) particular
      ‘area' based studies (e.g. Middle East, Africa, Caucasus).

      The successful applicants will be expected to integrate fully into the
      activities of EXCEPS, and their host department, and contribute to
      promoting the new centre's activities globally.
