The Postdoctoral Researcher will carry out research within the project on International Law Through the Prism of National Courts, funded under the ECRP scheme of the European Science Foundation. He or she will be based at the Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL), which collaborates in this project with the Universities of Berlin, Oslo, Vienna, Warsaw, Siena, and Tel Aviv.
A number of Oxford colleges offer Reach Oxford scholarships (formerly Oxford Student Scholarships) to students from developing countries who, for political or financial reasons, or because suitable educational facilities do not exist, cannot study for a degree in their own countries.
We are looking for motivated candidates with an MSc in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, or a related field. Applicants have knowledge in computer vision, stochastic signal processing and/or machine learning and good programming skills in Matlab and/or C++. An interest in quantitative analysis of perception, cognition and emotion will be a significant plus. Applicants should be able to demonstrate independence and good communications skills.

The main research objective for the Ph.D. student position is to analyze the benefit of harnessing location information with uncertainty to improve communication capabilities in wireless networks. Such benefits can be reaped at any layer of the protocol stack, and will be quantified based on real channel models, combined with rigorous theoretical analysis, and computer simulations. The Ph.D. student will work with a team of researchers, investigating diverse aspects of cooperative wireless networks, in the framework of an ERC Starting Grant.
The STW-Perspectief programme Nanoscopy: From sharp images to molecular interaction is a large national programme on the development of super-resolution microscopy or 'nanoscopy' and its applications in biomedical sciences. In the last decade new technologies have been developed that enable achieving resolutions down to 10-50 nm. In contrast, classical microscopy has a limited resolution of ~250 nm. This is a spectacular development, however, the potential of nanoscopy is much higher. It will allow the direct observation of molecular machines that make up the cell and enable extraction of functional data such as molecular interactions and dynamics. It is our ambition to lift existing nanoscopy techniques to a level that enables the extraction of information on biomolecular action and interaction in intact cells.
A limited number of partial-tuition scholarships are available to students in the Executive MBA Europe program for the cohort beginning October 2011. For students from qualifying countries, these awards are designed to offset partial costs of attendance to the Thunderbird Executive MBA Europe program. Awards will be applied directly towards the tuition expenses of the Executive MBA program in Geneva. Students must complete a separate form and essay for consideration. If awarded, the scholarship will be applied as a credit to the student.s tuition account (cash payments will not be made directly to the student). The amount of the scholarships will vary based on individual financial need, but awards will cover 20% - 25% of the program tuition.
Georg Forster Research Fellowships for postdoctoral researchers are the instrument with which the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation enables highly-qualified scientists and scholars who are just embarking on their academic careers and who completed their doctorates less than four years ago1 to spend extended periods of research (6-24 months) in Germany
This summer, several Mount Holyoke College students are participating in academic exchange programs abroad and are blogging about their experiences from all corners of the world - from Lima, to Venice, to Santiago, to Brussels. Read about how a Chinese student faces challenges with children's welfare policy in Dakar, how a Vietnamese student integrates media and economics in Shanghai, and how a Korean-Australian attempts to learn Chinese in Beijing. These students' summer travels reveal that direct interaction with diverse communities can be an important part of the overall educational experience.
Starting this fall, Canisius College in Western New York will add ten new academic degree programs to its undergraduate and graduate curricula. These programs build upon the broad range of options already available for students: more than 1,000 course offerings and 80 distinct majors, minors, and special programs.
For the 17th year, Centenary College in New Jersey hosted an intensive Summer Culture and Language Program for international students to learn about American culture and the English language. During the six-week program, students participated in an English pronunciation enrichment program and took a four-credit course in Advanced English as a Second Language reading and writing. Students had the opportunity to experience American culture through extracurricular activities such as tours, cultural events, and a strong residential life program. Many particiapnts in this program will enroll as full-time Centenary students in the fall semester.
The Penn Humanities Forum at the University of Pennsylvania is awarding five one-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships for the 2012-2013 academic year. This fellowship is available to untenured scholars in the humanities who received or will receive their Ph.D. between December 2003 and December 2011. Fellows teach one undergraduate course in addition to conducting their research, and they are required to be in residence during their fellowship year (September to May). The fellowship stipend is $46,500, plus health insurance. Fellows also receive a research fund of $2500.
The College of St. Rose, a private Catholic institution in Albany, New York, offers an International Scholarship avaliable to new international graduate students who are enrolled full-time. This merit-based award, which is open to students in all fields of study, reduces full-time tuition costs by 50 percent for two consecutive years or completion of the program, whichever comes first.
The University of Wisconsin-Superior seeks to promote diversity and academic excellence on its campus by attracting qualified and motivated international students. In the 2010-11 academic year, approximately 180 international students from over 30 countries attended UW-Superior, and more than 90% these undergraduate students received significant financial assistance ($5,500 to $7,500) through the Non-resident Tuition Waiver (NTW) program.
At the University of Maine, international students can apply for a limited number of tuition scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year in recognition of outstanding academic performance. These awards, which cover up to 30 credits of tuition charges per year, are primarily limited to first time, undergraduate foreign nationals who qualify for the F-1 or J-1 student visa. Award recipients must be enrolled full-time at the University of Maine.
Research Fellowships in the field of Social Sciences for the applicants of Eastern- and Southeastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union and Mongolia funded by Open Society Institute's (OSI) Higher Education Support Program (HESP)-2011/12
The Library of Congress' Kluge Center invites qualified scholars to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship for advanced research based on the Kislak Collection.

Kislak Foundation of Miami Lakes, Fla. The collection contains some of the earliest records of indigenous peoples in North America and superb objects from the discovery, contact, and colonial periods, especially for Florida, the Caribbean, and Mesoamerica.
