Solomon Asch Center Summer Institute 2001: Psychosocial
Research and Ethnopolitical Conflict


Psychosocial Research and Ethnopolitical Conflict: A Summer Institute.
The Solomon Asch Center for Study of Ethnopolitical Conflict
(http://psych.upenn.edu/sacsec) will offer a 10-week Summer Institute
at the University of Pennsylvania, June-August 2001. 

The Institute is intended for Ph.D. psychologists and social
scientists in related disciplines and for individuals with a Masters
degree and strong field experience. This unique course is designed to
bridge the current gap between practitioners and academics while
encouraging more qualified individuals to devote themselves to
advancing our understanding of these conflicts and our effectiveness
in addressing their tragic consequences. It will prepare participants
to work on problems ranging from basic research to evaluating
interventions. The Institute is therefore particularly appropriate for
individuals anticipating an academic/research-oriented career in this
area and for practitioners seeking to strengthen their understanding
of research issues relevant to their fieldwork. 

The Center expects to admit approximately 15 Summer Fellows to the
tuition-free Institute. Contingent on funding availability, some or
all Fellows will receive support for travel, room, and board. The
Center also expects to support 4 to 6 Summer Fellows to continue
directly into one-year placements working on ethnopolitical conflict
outside the U.S. at an affiliated international network site
(including N. Ireland, S. Africa, Israel/Palestine, and Sri Lanka). 

Applicants should send a vita, two letters of recommendation (flap
sealed and signed by recommender), and a letter describing interests,
skills, and how the Institute experience fits with career plans.
Clearly indicate whether or not a post-Institute field placement is
sought. Applications should be received no later than January 15,
2001; notification of acceptance will be no later than March 1, 2001.

Applications should be addressed to Solomon Asch Center, University of
Pennsylvania, 3815 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
