This currently comprises 114 German and 166 non-German institutions and individuals engaged in research.

Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR),

George Mason UniversityTwo teaching positions

(from autumn 1997)

The positions will be offered with open rank, although one appointment will be made at a senior-professor level.

_Candidates for this position should have a demonstrated capacity for creative thinking, collaborative research, and cross-disciplinary approaches to the study of conflict and its resolution. They should have an ability to make their own discipline accessible to scholars and students from diverse backgrounds, and with an interest in the less well-developed areas of conflict resolution such as, but not limited to, reconciliation processes and the creation of civil society. High-quality scholarship as evidenced by an established publication record is essential. Well-developed teaching and mentoring skills are essential also. For one of these positions, preference will be given to those with research interests on North American conflicts, or who could straddle the boundaries between domestic and international conflict with comparative focus. For the other position, area specialization is open.

_ICAR is a degree-granting institute, consisting of scholars and practitioners from diverse disciplines and professional backgrounds. Members of the institute are devoted to the study of deep-rooted conflict as it manifests itself at all levels of society and in diverse cultural settings.

_Applicants should forward a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, two examples of recent publications, and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of three references to the contact below.
