Two Postdoc Positions in Journalism and Environmental Humanities

The Department of Media and Journalism Studies within the School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University invites applications for two postdoc positions with a focus on journalism studies, environmental humanities or a combination of both. The two postdoc positions are central to the research project ‘Seasonal Journalism as Vernacular Phenology’ funded by the Aarhus University Research Foundation (AUFF) and led by Associate Professor Henrik Bødker in collaboration with Dr. Michelle Bastian (University of Edinburgh).

The postdoc positions are full time and fixed-term, 19-month positions. The positions start on 1 January 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The School of Communication and Culture is committed to diversity and encourages all qualified applicants to apply regardless of their personal background.

Project

The project ‘Seasonal Journalism as Vernacular Phenology’ is an investigation of everyday observations of the timings of natural phenomena in what we term ‘seasonal journalism’ (for example, recurrent articles on gardening, first flowering, agricultural timing) in the last 25 years. We approach these observations as a form of vernacular ‘phenology’, which, in ecology, refers to the study of cyclical and seasonal occurrences. The project is an exploratory one which will combine insights into temporality from journalism studies and environmental humanities. Our interest is in identifying how a local awareness of climate change can be traced in media outputs from Denmark and Australia since the turn of the century. Based on the available material, both analogue and digital, the project seeks to develop methodologies for framing, gathering and analysing data on seasonal media and communicating findings more widely. The research team will work collaboratively, building on our individual strengths, and we are open to applicants suggesting novel framings within our overarching interest of investigating seasonal journalism.

Postdoc profiles

We are looking to fill the two postdoc positions with applicants interested in participating in and developing research in journalism studies, the environmental humanities and/or ecological timing at an international level. It is expected that the successful applicants will have a good command of current debates in one of the designated research fields and are able to set out a convincing approach for how they will identify and develop synergies between them. Within the overall framework, successful applicants will have the opportunity to develop their own ideas and projects that are in line with their interests and expertise. In addition to that, we plan to build a team with good communications skills and a reliable work ethic.

Successful applicants will be expected to

  • work with the project leads to identify appropriate archives and data sources for materials relevant to the project
  • identify relevant quantitative and/or qualitative methods for working with media outputs
  • gather and analyse cases of seasonal journalism from frameworks derived from journalism studies and/or environmental humanities
  • participate in joint writing and dissemination projects
  • provide support for project meetings
  • contribute to a collaborative grant application with international partners.

Teaching and supervision

While each postdoc position is primarily research-based, at our department it also involves a degree of teaching and supervision or other department tasks (approximately 20% of the postdoc’s employment). The successful applicant will thus take part in some of the department’s teaching and supervision activities at the MA level. This will mainly take place at our international Erasmus Mundus Programme ‘Journalism, Media, and Globalisation’, and will align with the successful applicant’s skills and interests where possible.

Qualifications

Applicants must have a PhD degree or must document equivalent qualifications in any field related to the representation of climate change and/or other environmental issues.

Applicants must be able to document

  • an internationally oriented research profile within a field relevant to the representation of climate change (for example, journalism, literature, environmental humanities, geography or ecology)
  • a convincing research proposal for the postdoc period, including an explanation of how the project supports the applicant’s career ambitions
  • a proven ability to conduct detailed textual analyses either qualitatively or/and quantitatively
  • an outstanding and innovative doctoral dissertation in an area related to and relevant for the project
  • experience in the self-directed management of research projects
  • excellent communication and interpersonal skills needed to engage productively both with the research team and with external collaborators.

Furthermore, it will be considered an advantage if applicants can document

  • a track record of research publications of a high international standard, as commensurate with the length of the applicant’s academic career
  • experience of digital methods for analysing large corpora of digital texts (for at least one of the positions)
  • experience of participation in national and international research networks
  • time spent abroad working at one or more internationally recognised research institutions.

Applicants are asked to provide a proposal for research to be undertaken within the stated framework of the research project (max. three pages). Please also address each of the specific criteria in an accompanying cover letter.

Please note that applications that do not include evidence of academic writing (this could be publications or sections from the PhD dissertation (up to a maximum of five submissions)) will not be considered.

Work environment

Active participation in the daily life of the department is a high priority, and we emphasise the importance of good working relations, both among colleagues and with our students. In order to maintain and develop the department’s excellent teaching and research environment, the successful applicant is expected to be present at the department on a regular basis.

We respect the balance between work and private life and strive to create a work environment in which that balance can be maintained. See Family and work-life balance for further information.

More information about the completion grant scheme here.

The workplace is at UiT in Tromsø. You must be able to start in the position within a reasonable time after receiving the offer.

Department of Archaeology, History, Religious Studies and Theology’s (AHR)

AHR employs 70 academics within the fields of Archaeology, History, Religious Studies and Theology and is home to the national Registration Centre for Historical Data (RHD). The department is responsible for teaching, research and public dissemination with a particular focus on the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural landscape of northern Fennoscandia within national and international comparative frameworks. AHR is an active department that employs 10 PhD candidates and 4 postdoctoral researchers associated with the department’s various divisions and research groups.

The Research Group Creating the New North (CNN) and the Department’s Division of Archaeology

The Research Group Creating the New North (CNN)

Creating the New North, established in 2004, is at the forefront of national and international multidisciplinary research on settlement, society and identity in the High North in the Iron Age, Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period, with a particular focus on northern Norway. The group includes 17 permanent and temporary researchers within the fields of Archaeology, History, History of Science, History of Religions, Art History, Language and Literature and fosters extensive national and international networks within these fields of study. CNN currently has three active PhD candidates and several affiliated master’s students, as well as numerous associated scholars and students at other institutions in Norway and abroad. Two additional PhD candidates will join the group in 2023, one of which will be employed in the position advertised.

AHR’s division of Archaeology has an international staff of 14 members, including four PhD candidates and one postdoctoral researcher. The division conducts research on a broad range of culture-historical topics, Saami archaeology, theory and method, natural environments, cultural heritage studies and contemporary archaeology. Much of this research is conducted within collaborative research groups and projects. AHR also employs academics with extensive knowledge on demographic research using historical and archaeological data. This includes cooperation with experts as the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU).

The project

The PhD position is financed by UiT and will contribute knowledge fundamental to the advancement of archaeological and historical research on settlement and society in the High North. The aim of the project is to map demographic change in the High North in the Iron Age and Middle Ages. Research will employ established methods of paleodemographic modelling based on statistical analyses of radiocarbon dating as an indirect demographic variable. Results should be interpreted together with other relevant demographic variables derived from, for instance, archaeological, osteological or historical sources. Cross-disciplinary approaches that develop the methodology further are encouraged.

The resulting synthesis will ideally advance our understanding of demographic conditions in the counties of Nordland, Troms and Finnmark in the Iron Age and Middle Ages beyond that facilitated by previous research approaches.

The candidate is expected to discuss their results within a culture-historical context. Potentially relevant topics include, but are not limited to, connections between demographic fluctuations and climatic change, epidemics, social organization, settlement patterns, economic change, trade relations, social, cultural and/or ethnic interaction and gender dynamics.

The empirical data is to be sourced from existing databases and archives. The project does not entail new archaeological investigation or radiocarbon dating.

Postdoctoral position in aphasiology

The Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Denmark, invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position in aphasiology to be filled by 1 May 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics (NorS) provides the setting for international research and education from BA to PhD studies within linguistics and language technology, literature, media, culture, and gender studies. More information can be found here: https://nors.ku.dk

Job content
The Postdoc will be part of the project Grammar and agrammatism in Greenlandic (GreenGram), financed by Independent Research Fund Denmark.

This project addresses a challenge raised by the first study of agrammatism in a polysynthetic language, Greenlandic. In this study, we found slow speech rates and short utterances, as expected of agrammatic speech, but almost none of the grammatical problems that gave agrammatism its name.
The challenge raised by the study can be formulated in two questions:
1. Can the findings in the pilot study be replicated on a larger set of data collected from a group of well-diagnosed subjects?
2. What makes Greenlandic grammar, and presumably polysynthetic grammar in general, (seemingly) immune to agrammatism?

The project brings together linguists, aphasiologists and neuroscientists to answer these questions based on the first coherent functional-cognitive theory of what grammar is. The answer to the second question is a key to understanding the neurocognitive mechanisms behind grammar and agrammatism, and a key to aid Greenlanders with agrammatism.

The Postdoc project to be carried out by the candidate consists in:

  1. Adaptation of aphasia test materials for Greenlandic.
  2. Identification of informants.
  3. Collection of Greenlandic and Danish aphasia speech samples.
  4. Data analysis.
  5. Article writing.
  6. Project administration.

The Postdoc project will be carried out in close collaboration with (among others) Associate Professor of linguistics Kasper Boye (PI), Associate Professor of Greenlandic Naja Trondhjem, Professor of Neurolinguistics Roelien Bastiaanse, Professor of Neurology Hanne Christensen, speech therapist Frederikke Simonsen, and native speakers of Greenlandic.

It is highly recommended that applicants contact PI Kasper Boye at boye@hum.ku.dk prior to submission of the application.

Qualification requirements
To be considered for the position applicants must have research qualifications at least corresponding to what can be achieved as part of a successfully completed PhD within a relevant field.

Ideally, this means that applicants must at least have submitted their PhD thesis by the time of application.

Relevant fields are aphasiology and neurolinguistics – and neighboring fields, required that the candidate presents documentation for strong qualifications in one or both of the named fields.

In addition, the applicant preferably has one or more of the following qualifications:

  • Statistics skills.
  • Experience with collection and analysis of aphasic data.
  • Knowledge of research on bilingualism in aphasia
  • Knowledge of Greenlandic and/or Danish and/or related languages.

For further details about the qualification requirements for postdocs, please refer to the job structure for Academic Staff at Universities 2013: https://ufm.dk/en/legislation/prevailing-laws-and-regulations/education/files/job-structure-for-academic-staff-at-universities-2013.pdf

Postdoctoral position in social science at The Center for Subjectivity Research, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen

The Center for Subjectivity Research (CFS), Department of Communication, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Denmark, invites applications for a postdoc position in social science (social psychology, sociology, cultural or social anthropology, or political science) to be filled by January 1, 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for 2 years.

Information about CFS can be found at https://cfs.ku.dk/

Job content
The postdoc will be part of a project entitled Who are We? funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and headed by Prof. Dan Zahavi. Applicants are asked to situate and develop their research plan within the framework of the Who are we? project and are encouraged to contact Dan Zahavi, zahavi@hum.ku.dk, for additional information about the overarching project.

The larger project investigates what it means to feel, think, and act as part of a we. Its guiding hypothesis is that a systematic account of the we must be embedded in a more comprehensive investigation of selfhood and social cognition. The project will systematically develop this hypothesis by combining cross-disciplinary theorizing with historical scholarship. In particular, it will draw on seminal contributions from classical phenomenology. In addition to philosophers, the project will also involve social scientists (from social anthropology, sociology, and political theory).

The postdoc should be a theoretically oriented social scientist (with a background in social psychology, sociology, cultural or social anthropology, or political science/theory) who is familiar with classical social identity and self-categorisation theory (e.g., Tajfel, Turner, Hogg, Abrams, or Brewer), but who is also up to date with more recent discussions on group identification. During the employment, the candidate should engage with the following set of questions: What is the link between identity and identification? How does group identification affect self-identity? What kind of individual heterogeneity and plurality does group-identification (and unification) allow for? What kind of interpersonal relation is particularly conducive for group-identification?

The successful candidate will be working in close cooperation with philosophers and other social scientists and should be interested in theory development. The postdoc is not expected to conduct new empirical research during the period of employment.

Qualification requirements
In order to be considered for the position, applicants must have research qualifications at least corresponding to what can be achieved as part of a successfully completed PhD. It is expected that the successful candidate will be in Copenhagen as part of the team and partake in the activities at CFS on a daily basis.

Furthermore, emphasis will be placed on the following:  

  • Research qualifications, which will be assessed in relation to the period of active research, the degree of originality, and academic output.  
  • The applicant’s scientific record, academic breadth and depth, rigor, thoroughness and accuracy, as well as academic relevance in relation to the job description.
  • Participation in networks – national and international  
  • Previous experience with interdisciplinary collaboration and research
  • Familiarity with social identity and self-categorization theory is essential. Some familiarity with phenomenology and/or contemporary philosophical discussions of collective intentionality would be an additional asset  
  • Good interpersonal skills  
  • Excellent skills in English, written and spoken  

For further details about the qualification requirements for postdocs, please refer to the job structure for academic staff https://employment.ku.dk/faculty/criteria-for-recognising-merit/dokumenter/Ministerial_Order_no._1443_of_11_December_2019_on_Job_Structure_for_Academic_Staff_at_Universities.pdf

PhD scholarship within the project Postwar Memory Generations – contested memory, historical narratives and history education in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia

PhD scholarship within the project Postwar Memory Generations – contested memory, historical narratives and history education in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia

The Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Copenhagen is inviting applications for a three-year PhD scholarship on the topic of cultural memory and history education in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. The scholarship is fully funded for three years and will be filled on 1 January 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The project
The PhD position is opened within the framework of the collective research project Postwar Memory Generations – contested memory, historical narratives and history education in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, which is funded by Velux Fonden (January 2023 – January 2026). The PhD-fellow will join a research team of four scholars working within the project Postwar Memory Generations and will be supervised by the project manager, Associate Professor Tea Sindbæk Andersen.

The project Postwar Memory Generations investigates the role of history education and history schoolbooks in shaping cultural memory in war-torn regions. Cultural memories, understood as shared narratives and representations of a common past, are core elements of group identities and essential in the social fabric of modern societies. The role of history education in creating cultural memory is fundamental. History education and history textbooks are generally considered vital tools for states to ingrain a certain collective memory and to socialise future citizens. Yet, we know little about the actual impact of history education. This is especially relevant in post-conflict regions with a painful recent past, such as Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH). In such contexts, questions of what and how to remember are typically contested and contentious. The ways in which questions of memory are resolved have implications for relations between neighbouring countries, generations and groups in society. The project investigates how generations schooled in BiH and Serbia in the 2000s and 2010s remember the Yugoslav wars.

Job content
The PhD-fellow will work in the interdisciplinary research environment of the research project Postwar Memory Generations. As part of a team of researchers coming from language-based area studies, history and social psychology, the candidate must be willing and able to participate in regular research and outreach activities where we engage in cross-disciplinary discussions. The candidate will be expected to carry out ethnographic fieldwork and observations in high schools in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Thus, a working knowledge of Bosnian and/or Serbian is mandatory. Moreover, the candidate should be aware that there is a mandatory three-year plan for the PhD-program that also includes 30 ECTS of PhD-courses and one semester of teaching obligations.

Introduction
PhD studies consist of research programmes that qualify students for independent and wide-ranging research, development and teaching at international level. The main emphasis is on PhD students organising and conducting their own research project (under supervision). The programme culminates in the submission of a PhD thesis, which the student must defend in public. The programme is prescribed to 180 ECTS points, corresponding to three years of full-time study.

A PhD opens up a range of career opportunities in academia and elsewhere. As well as writing a thesis, PhD students work in active research environments in Denmark and abroad. They contribute to the academic environment, take research training courses and convey the results of their research in teaching, at academic conferences and to the general public.

Qualification requirements
Applicants must have a two-year Master’s degree (120 ECTS) or equivalent within the field of area studies, history, education studies, social anthropology or a similar discipline and, as a minimum, have submitted a Master’s thesis for which they have received pre-approval at the time of application.

The qualifications of applicants with non-Danish Master’s degrees will be assessed to ascertain whether they correspond to the Danish level. For further information, please refer to the website of the Ministry of Education and Research: https://ufm.dk/en/education/admission-and-guidance.

Applicants must possess skills in written and spoken academic English at a high level. A working knowledge of Bosnian and/or Serbian is mandatory. If deemed necessary, the department may request that applicants document their English or other language skills.

Application
All applications must be submitted online, in PDF or Microsoft Word format, via the link “Apply for the position” at the bottom of the page.

The application must include:

1. Cover letter

These documents must be translated into English, Danish, Norwegian or Swedish. An official description of the grading scale (and a diploma supplement where relevant) must also be attached.

Chinese applicants must attach a China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Evaluation Committee (CADGEEC) certificate.

4. Other relevant material
Please do not upload or submit recommendations, publications, theses, etc.

Assessment criteria

Postdoctoral position in archaeology as citizen science at the Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies

The Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies, School of Culture and Society, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University invites applications for a 2,5-year fixed-term postdoctoral position in archaeology as citizen science.

The position is linked to the research project ’Borgerforskning som kulturarvsinnovator – Danefæ og detektorarkæologi som samskabende forskning og kilde til ny viden’. The position is made possible by a grant from the AUGUSTINUS FONDEN to the project’s PI Andres Dobat. The project is a collaboration between Aarhus University, Moesgård Museum, the National Museum of Denmark and the Historical Museum of North Jutland.

The appointment begins December 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The university is keen for its staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified applicants regardless of their personal background.

Research context

We are looking for a versatile and dynamic scholar with a background in either:

  • archaeology and heritage studies or related, preferably with some additional experience or the will to gain such experience in citizen science (borgerforskning).
  • citizen science (borgerforskning) or related, preferably with some additional experience or the will to gain such experience in archaeology, heritage studies or related.  

It will be counted as an advantage if you have experience or the will to gain experience in museum practice, amateur archaeology, archaeological outreach and dissemination, metal detecting, archaeological artefacts, finds data, databases and/or IT development.

The focus of the project is Danish amateur archaeology (primarily metal detecting) and detected finds data. The project is first and foremost an intervention project, aiming to inform and improve archaeological practice through the development of concrete products and best practice advice. On a broad scale, the project aims at studying Danish archaeology through the lenses of the citizen science paradigm. On a narrower scale, the project aims at developing Danish hobby metal detecting into citizen science. Another focus will be the reactivation of the National Museum's Dane collection. The project thus has both an academic dimension (studying the landscape of citizen science in Danish archaeology), a social dimension (working with amateur archaeologists) and a classical archaeological dimension (working with artefacts and digital data). The concrete objectives of the project are to:

  • Explore possibilities/limitations for citizen science in Danish archaeology,
  • engage citizens to engage in research and actively contribute data and knowledge,
  • make the National Museum's Dane collection accessible to all stakeholders in Denmark; and internationally,
  • test citizen science as a methodological tool to generate new knowledge about key aspects of Danish history,
  • develop Danish and international research practice and methodology and formulate best practice recommendations,

The candidate will work in close collaboration with other project participants, among these finds experts at the National Museum, and in particular the project's principal investigator, Associate Professor Andres Dobat, who will coordinate the research and provide guidance to support the candidate's career development (for a research assistant, possibly towards a PhD application). The successful applicant is expected to take an active and independent role in the design and coordination of all project activities.

For more detailed information on the project see here: https://cas.medarbejdere.au.dk/fileadmin/cas_medarbejdere/Forskning/Projektbeskrivelse.pdf
 

The position

The successful applicant is expected to engage with hobby archaeology in Denmark (mainly hobby metal detecting) in different ways. This will involve classic empirical research, such as conducting online surveys and interviews and gathering data in reports and articles. The project will, however, also contain direct interaction and collaboration with amateur archaeologists which will lead to the design educational material (best practice recommendations, artefact type references, online user guidelines, etc.). The position also involves working with the registration portal DIME (dime.au.dk), including preparing content for the website and user guidance. The position also entails the daily coordination of the research project.

Applicants are asked to submit an application containing a concise statement of motivation for applying for the position (maximum one page) and five key publications.

The successful applicant will be expected to:

  • develop their own research approach within the framework provided by the project proposal
  • present their research at international meetings and publish results in both reports, popular news channels and peer-reviewed international scientific journals
  • contribute to the organization of research workshops and international conferences

Teaching

The position will involve some teaching BA and/or MA level as agreed upon with the Head of the Department and the project PIs (maximum 20%, by agreement).

Knowledge exchange

The successful applicant will be expected to exchange knowledge with various sectors of society and to contribute actively to public debate in areas related to the position.

Qualifications

Applicants for this position must hold a PhD degree in archaeology, heritage studies, history, or a related field.

Applicants must document experience or interest in one or several of the following fields:

  • citizen science
  • hobby/amateur archaeology and/or hobby metal detecting
  • Coordination and management of projects
  • Preparation of research publications
  • Preparation of outreach/dissemination and/or educational material
  • Teaching experience
  • Archaeological objects
  • Digital object data (databases)
  • Digital development
  • Fluency in written and spoken Danish or a Scandinavian language is a prerequisite for the position.

The research activities will be evaluated in relation to the actual research time. We therefore encourage applicants to specify any periods of leave they may have had without research activities (e.g. maternity/paternity leave), so we can subtract these periods from the span of their academic career when evaluating their productivity.

Please upload a maximum of five  publications alongside your application.

Only submitted publications will be assessed; a list of publications is not sufficient. As a result, applications without submitted publications will not be assessed.

Professional references or recommendations should not be included. Applicants who are selected for an interview may be asked to provide professional references.

The application can be submitted in English or Danish.

For further information about the position, please contact Andres Dobat at farkado@cas.au.dk

For more information about the application, please contact HR supporter Marianne Birn, e-mail mbb@au.dk.

The work environment

At the department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies we are concerned with people and the environment and culture and society from the earliest to modern times, with a focus on studies of material culture. On the basis of fieldwork and library and laboratory studies, including anthropology, history and a variety of scientific approaches, the programme investigates and challenges our understanding of past societies seen in a long time perspective.

The archaeology programme at Aarhus University has an international profile and strong research networks. A dynamic research environment provides the framework for large research projects, international conferences and a variety of visiting researchers. The environment is versatile and cross-disciplinary, and the academic staff’s research competences span topics ranging from war and power, mobility and globalisation, family and individual, religion and rituals, landscape and settlement, paleo-demography and evolution, trade and networks, technology and knowledge exchange to (in particular) quantitative analysis methods, field methodology and digital representation.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in (Psycho)Linguistics

The position

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available at the Department of Language and Culture, Faculty of Humanities, in (Psycho)Linguistics. The position will be affiliated with the project Multilingual Minds: Grammar interaction in multilingual acquisition (MuMin) and the AcqVA Aurora-Center. 

The position is a fixed term position for a duration of twoyears. Appointment to the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow is mainly intended to provide qualification for work in top academic positions. It is a prerequisite that the applicant can carry out the project over the full course of the employment period. No person may hold more than one fixed term position as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the same institution. If you receive a personal overseas research grant from NFR it is possible to apply NFR for an extension of the fellowship period corresponding to the length of the stay abroad (minimum three months, maximum 12 months).

The workplace is at UiT in Tromsø. You must be able to start in the position within a reasonable time after receiving the offer.

The position’s field of research

The majority of people in the modern world are multilingual, with as many as two thirds of children being raised in multilingual environments. Across Europe, the proportion of multilingual children is currently around 20-25%, and steadily increasing. The last decades have witnessed a remarkable increase in effort from several disciplines aimed to uncover the cognitive mechanisms of language acquisition and language processing, and to understand how language is organised in the mind. One important aspect of this enterprise is the study of whether and how multiple languages interact within multilingual minds. However, this question is difficult to address within current methodological approaches which compare the linguistic behaviour of bilingual children to that of their monolingual peers. In such setup it is impossible to establish whether differences between the groups are due to cross-linguistic influence (CLI) or to the reduced input that bilingual childrenreceive in their two languages. In this project, we propose a new methodology which will enable us to disentangle CLI from the effects of reduced input. We will go beyond comparing bilingual children to monolinguals and make a comparison across multiple bilingual populations. In doing this, we will keep one language – the target – constant and vary the second language parametrically (based on the presence and absence of certain grammatical features). We will match the participants by their exposure to the target language, thus making sure that the only difference between the groups is their second language. This in turn means that if we find any differences in the way the bilingual groups comprehend or produce the target language, we will be able to confidently attribute these differences to the influence coming from their second languages. The findings of the project will have major implications for the theoretical models of languages in the mind, and for theoretical and practical aspects of language learning.

The primary objective of the project is to establish the role of cross-linguistic grammatical influence in multilingual child language acquisition by applying a new methodology of comparing across bilingual populations and strictly matching the participants by language exposure factors. The secondary objectives of the project include a) comparing production and processing data from the same bilingual populations, and b) developing a new standard methodology for cross-linguistic comparisons of multilingual children.

The position’s affiliation 

The Department of Language and Culture has a very active research environment with a large thematic breadth. The Department hosts some of the leading academic linguistic environments in the world, among others represented by the AcqVA Aurora Center, established in 2020.

The department offers studies in general linguistics, literary studies, art history, media and documentation studies, English, Swedish
and Finnish, Nordic, Russian, Sami, Spanish and German, as one-year studies, bachelor’s or master’s degree studies. The Department also offers doctoral education in cultural/literary studies, art history, media and documentation studies and linguistics.

The AcqVA Aurora Centre currently consists of ca 40 active researchers, including ten professors/associate professors, a lab director, eleven researchers/postdoctoral fellows, five MSCA postdocs, four PhD students, and eight Professor II positions (20%), who are top, internationally recognized leaders in our field. The group members are involved in a number of research projects both locally and internationally, e.g. the MuMin, MiMS and SALT projects financed by the Research Council of Norway, the MultiGender project funded by the Centre for Advanced Study, and the HeLPiNG project funded by the Tromsø Research Foundation.

In particular, the project is interested in Buddhist consumption practices, waste regimes, value, affect, and aesthetics as they are connected to the waste imaginaries and waste trajectories that we study. The project asks: how do Buddhists define and sort waste from non-waste? What are the effects of increased consumption practices and waste production on ecological systems, cultural practices, social relations, rituals, and customs? The postdoc and the other team members will collectively and through their individual ethnographic studies respond to these research questions.

The postdoc will work in the interdisciplinary research environment at the Centre for Contemporary Buddhist Studies at the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies, University of Copenhagen. As part of a team of researchers coming from language-based area studies, religious studies, and anthropology, the postdoc must be willing and able to participate in regular research and outreach activities where we engage in cross-disciplinary discussions.

PhD position in Practice-based design research in child-centered play design

We are curious on how the child-centered design approach influences the final play design, like an object or a space. What role does the design discipline, like industrial design or communication design, plays in the design of the play object. And what are the potentials for the industry of working more child-centered in their play design process and in the final play design. 

Examples of questions and contexts that could be studied in the PhD:

  • What is a child-centered play design and how does the child-centered deign approach influence the specific play design?
  • How to design for child-centered play opportunities in city development projects?
  • How does the new LEGO set look like, if it is designed based on a child-centered design process?
  • What is child-centered learning through play and how to design for that?
  • How is a child-centered playground developed and designed for the relevancy of children, and how can the relevancy be concluded on?
  • Which opportunities and challenges are there in using the child-centered design approach in the play design industry or other commercial companies?
  • How to create a building for future potential of design, play, learning and creativity?
  • What is needed for designing for playfulness in other areas than design, like architecture?
  • How to use a playful approach to design for a playful life?
  • Which role does the design discipline plays in child-centered design for play?

Inspiration to the design research methodology: 

  • Research through design
  • Practise-based design research
  • Constructive design research
  • Programmatic design research
  • Design experiments 
  • Design anthropology 
  • User-centered design 
  • Participatory design

It is expected that the applicant has a background within industrial design, textile design, fashion design, interaction design, communication design or another relevant design discipline.

The PhD student will be teaching at the BA/MA educations at Design School Kolding especially in courses related to design of play, experience, and learning. A suggestion and overview of how the PhD student can suggest to do so will be a preparation for the applicant to present if selected for an interview for the PhD position.

The proposed PhD project must follow the general rules for the doctoral program.
