Visiting Scholar Program: Mershon Center for International Security Studies ("security" is broadly conceived)

Dear Colleagues,

I want to call your attention to the following visiting scholar opportunity.  Please NOTE that the center has a very broad definition of "security" (it has funded projects on the history of Native American history, water control, intra-state violence/pacification, etc.).  I would love to see a strong pool of applicants who specialize in any water-related research.  Please consult the URL below for program details and links to broader Mershon Center Activities.
