Duties
The recruited doctoral student will be working in the research project Artificial Intelligence as a risk and opportunity for the authenticity of archives, a Wallenberg NETX (Networking Excellence Projects in the Humanities and Social Sciences for the Study of Consequences and Challenges of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems) funded research network between Uppsala University and Linnaeus University. Two doctoral students will be recruited for the project, one (information studies) based at Uppsala University and one (computer and information science) at Linnaeus University. The project is multidisciplinary and combines perspectives from AI and archival and heritage studies.

A major outcome of the doctoral project comprises a tested framework for maintaining and assessing the authenticity of historical evidence held at archival institutions developed to inform the implementation of selected AI techniques in archives and related institutions. The doctoral student is expected to conduct empirical research (incl. analysis of archival descriptions and classifications, records and documents, AI/ML techniques, interviews and co-creation). Conceptually, the study can be expected to benefit of comprehensive consideration of archival diplomatics, archives management and knowledge organisation theory. The work includes collaboration with the National Archives of Sweden (Riksarkivet) and other archival organisations in Sweden, and an eight-month exchange period spent at Linnaeus University.

To support the training and research work, the NETX Network will organise a comprehensive programme of networking activities consisting of doctoral research workshops with invited external mentors, regular research seminars, supervisory meetings with local supervisors, and meetings with the whole project staff. The recruited applicant will also have the opportunity to link up with the new graduate school DASH in Digital humanities at the Centre for Digital Humanities Uppsala, Wallenberg Autonomous Systems in Humanities and Society (WASP-HS) graduate school, the doctoral school in information studies ReSource, and the international InterPARES Trust AI research project. Supervisors of the doctoral project are Professor Anna Foka (Department of ALM) and Professor Isto Huvila (Department of ALM).

To be considered, the project outlined in the research statement submitted for consideration as a part of the application needs to be completable by the applicant and to combine perspectives from artificial intelligence (machine learning, deep learning) and archival and heritage studies in a doctoral thesis in the field of information studies.

Marie Sklodowska-Curie THERESA, Doctoral Researcher (2 positions), European and International Energy Law

We are now inviting applications for two Doctoral Researcher positions in the EU-funded Marie Curie Innovative Doctoral Network Programme“Training for a hydrogen economy based renewable energy society in the anthropocene” (THERESA)The employment at the UEF Law School will start in May 2023.  Read more and submit your application no later than 1 April 2023.

Role and salary

UEF Law School invites applications for two Doctoral Researcher positions on the following topics: “Hydrogen certification schemes” or “In search for cross-sectoral coherence: an emerging regulatory framework for hydrogen”. The applicant may modify the research topic as long as the main focus remains within the scope of these two topics. The main research methodology for both of the topics is comparative law and the Doctoral Researcher is expected to carry out comparative research for his/her topic.

These positions are among the six Doctoral Researcher positions made available by THERESA project which integrates a consortium of universities made up of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Spain, the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and the University of Eastern Finland (UEF). The three universities stand out for having Research Centres in the field of energy, environmental and sustainability law with a proven track record in these areas. Thanks to the long-standing collaboration between the three universities, THERESA proposes the first European doctoral programme for legal specialists in the field of the hydrogen economy.

THERESA doctoral network combines the focus on three specific themes of regulatory intervention in the hydrogen economy – 1) reducing sectoral fragmentation to spur socio-environmental sustainability; 2) enabling sustainable circular use of hydrogen; and 3) societal engagement in the hydrogen economy – with three methodological approaches: doctrinal constructivism, empirical legal research and comparative law – to advance legal knowledge and form the doctoral experts needed to contribute to the development of a hydrogen economy. THERESA encompasses a fully-fledged training programme offering substantive, theoretical, methodological, and transferable skills to Doctoral Researcher.

The selected Doctoral Researchers will work within the energy law team of the UEF Law School and its Center for Climate Change, Energy and Environmental Law (CCEEL). CCEEL is an internationally renowned research hub for climate change, energy and environmental law. One of the largest of its kind in the world, CCEEL hosts nine professors and a total of 77 researchers, which have collectively accumulated external funding from sources such as the Academy of Finland, Strategic Research Council, Horizon and the European Research Council. CCEEL actively organises research seminars, workshops and conferences, which will also act as a testbed for the ideas developed in this project. (https://sites.uef.fi/cceel/)

An employed Doctoral Researcher must primarily devote his or her time to his or her own doctoral research in accordance with the THERESA -project.

The position’s field of research

Arctic is changing in multiple dimensions. Physical and environmental changes in the Arctic are coupled with social and cultural changes. Understanding the changes in the Arctic is essential for a sustainable life on this northern part of the world.

The changes occurring in various spheres (e.g., Earth, air and ocean environments), industry sectors, and societies within and beyond the Arctic have been the focus of research endeavours in both social and natural sciences.

Concurrently, the growing research attention highlights an urgent need for more comprehensive multi-disciplinary approaches.

This PhD project will contribute towards the multi-disciplinary research on the changing Arctic. The contribution is planned by investigating the changing Arctic and its related interactions with mobilities. Mobilities, in this sense, can be broadly approached where resources, goods, services, people, knowledge/ epistemic grounds, for example, are transiting, leaving, and arriving constantly. Mobilities in the Arctic is a relatively new topic for researchers, albeit its activities have been long in practice.

It is expected that a sufficiently refined focus will be attained within a short period of the PhD research commencement.

Focused attention may be given in the area including (but not limited to):

  • Mobilities and secure business environments
  • Mobilities and securing human capital
  • Mobilities and national security

Two Postdoctoral Positions in International Law for the EASTERNISATION Research Project

The Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, invites applications for 2 postdoctoral positions in international law. The positions are part of the EASTERNISATION Project Power Shifts and Regionalization of International Law” (with a focus on Russia and China) funded by the Danish Independent Research Fund.

Both positions are available from 1 June 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter, for a duration of 1,5 years. Postdoctoral researchers will be affiliated with the Faculty’s Research Centre for European and Comparative Legal Studies (CECS).

Introduction
In 2020, the EASTERNISATION project was originally conceived to examine the role that Russia and China played in the process of regionalization of international law (IL), and the impact that the process exerted on the stability of the international legal order (ILO). The recent turbulent developments, i.e. Russia’s unprovoked aggressive war against Ukraine and the resurgence of China’s belligerent rhetoric against Taiwan, demonstrate that regionalisation of IL – the use of IL as a tool to justify ambitious geopolitical goals in order to establish regional hegemony – is wreaking havoc on the existing ILO. Notwithstanding vocal condemnation of Russian and Chinese violations of IL by the international community, both countries vehemently deny that any of their actions are contrary to international law.  The project aims to trace the trajectory of evolving Russian and Chinese narratives of international law from after the creation of the post-World War II order until modern times, which they have promoted to lend legitimacy to their military actions and foreign policy decisions. It will examine Russian and Chinese efforts to refute the universality of a human rights-oriented Western doctrine of IL and their adoption of a sovereignty-centred doctrine of IL, which stands in stark contrast to the countries’ actual belligerent conduct towards their neighbours.

The project will build on two major pillars: (1) conceptualisation of IL (theoretical inquiry); and (2) contestation of IL (practice-oriented inquiry). The combination of the theoretical (what is IL in China and Russia?) and practical aspects of the research inquiry (how is IL applied by Russia and China?), coupled with a comparison to the Western approaches to IL, intend to provide a holistic picture of the impact of the regionalization of IL on the existing ILO. The ambition of the project is to offer reflections on (1) emerging similarities and differences between Russian and Chinese approaches to IL following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine at the backdrop of the evolution of legal thinking and IL practice in both countries; (1) necessary measures to be adopted by the international community to prevent a further breakdown of the ILO as a result of the process of the regionalization of IL pursued by Russia and China; and (2) the future of the discipline of IL affected by such processes. 

About the position
Two postdoctoral researchers will be hired as part of this project for a period of 1,5 years. One postdoctoral researcher (postdoc on Russia) will focus on the study of the evolution of Russian narratives of IL through the prism of the regionalization of IL, whereas another postdoctoral researcher (postdoc on China) will carry out a similar theoretical inquiry with respect to China. The project will be anchored at the Faculty’s Centre for European and Comparative Legal Studies (CECS) within the research pillar of ‘Challenges to International Legal Order and Global Governance’.

Applicants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Faculty's research areas and education programmes by visiting the Faculty’s website: www.jura.ku.dk

Required qualifications
The position requires academic qualifications (i.e. PhD, JSD or equivalent degree) in law or international relations. All applicants are expected to be able to use English as their working language (written and spoken). They need to demonstrate a clear potential to deliver high-quality peer-reviewed research publications. A successful candidate for the postdoc position on Russia is expected to have interest and expertise in Russia and a prior background in IL or international relations (IR). The knowledge of Russian will be considered an asset, as well as the previous research on Russia’s interpretation and application of IL.  Similar criteria apply for the postdoc position on China, however, the proficiency in Chinese Mandarin is a must, which is necessary to gain access to original sources.

In the overall assessment, emphasis will be placed on the applicant’s research and teaching potential. Special emphasis will be placed on the applicant’s ambition to develop and implement new research ideas, which may have an international impact. Furthermore, the Faculty places emphasis on the applicant’s interest and preferably, prior experience, in working with other researchers to conduct collective research and teaching activities, and welcomes the applicant’s proven ability to make a valuable contribution in this regard.

Salary and terms of employment
The appointment is temporary and will be made in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (Akademikernes Centralorganisation, AC). In addition to the basic salary, you will receive an annual supplement per month and a total contribution to your pension fund equal to 17,1 % of your salary. It is possible to negotiate further salary supplements. 

Application
Letter of motivation, appendices and the submitted research publications (including papers, articles and books) must be written in English. The application will be rejected if all the required documents are not submitted.

It is essential that you fill out all the mandatory fields in the electronic application even though the information has already been provided in your CV, application, publication or other material you have uploaded.

Doctoral student in technology/engineering education, focus gender studies

Department of Science and Mathematics Education

Apply

before 2023-02-20

Temporary position longer than 6 months 100% Umeå

Umeå University is one of Sweden’s largest institutions of higher education with over 37,000 students and 4,800 faculty and staff. We are characterised by world-leading research in several scientific fields and a multitude of educations ranked highly in international comparison. Umeå University is also the site of the pioneering discovery of the CRISPR-Cas9 genetic scissors – a revolution in genetic engineering that has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

At Umeå University, everything is nearby. Our cohesive campus environment makes it easy to meet, collaborate and exchange knowledge, which promotes a dynamic and open culture where we rejoice in each other’s successes.

Are you interested in knowing more about Umeå University as a workplace read more at: Work with us.

We are looking for you who want to complete a research education and study educational issues with relevance for technology and/or engineering education, as well as gender studies. 

In collaboration with the Graduate School of Gender Studies, we at the Department of Science and Mathematics Education are looking for a doctoral student in technology/engineering education. The position is located at the Department of Science and Mathematics Education which focuses on pre-service teacher training as well as research and development in educational sciences. The teachers/researchers at the department are mainly active within science education, technology education, mathematics education, and assessment for learning. You can read more here.

Focus area
Your research as a doctoral student will have a focus on technology teaching in higher education, and we are therefore looking for a doctoral student who is curious about this research area. The problem of gender-biased recruitment to technical education has been a noticeable problem for several decades in Sweden. Various government efforts have been made to change these gender patterns, often without results. In order to understand why technology is still male-coded, better knowledge of teaching and learning processes within the subject of technology is needed. Statistics also show that students from the working class and national minorities are underrepresented in higher education in Sweden. There is a need for an increased understanding of how learning processes in technology subjects relate to issues of power and knowledge, where an intersectional perspective has been lacking so far.

Qualifications
To be admitted to education at the postgraduate level, the applicant must have basic qualifications through a degree at advanced level or completed course requirements of at least 240 higher education credits, of which at least 60 credits are at advanced level, or equivalent foreign education or other equivalent qualifications.

Doctoral students can be admitted to postgraduate studies in technology or engineering education via two different syllabuses: educational work or subject matter education, both with a focus on technology. In addition to the basic qualifications, special qualifications are required that are different for the two postgraduate syllabuses.

To meet the requirement of special qualifications to be accepted in the postgraduate program of educational work with a focus on technology, besides meeting the basic qualifications, the applicant needs to have a teacher’s degree or pre-school teacher’s degree and at least one year of professional experience. The degree must include a degree project.

To meet the requirement of special qualifications to be accepted in the postgraduate program of subject matter education with a focus on technology, besides meeting the basic qualifications, the applicant needs to have at least 90 higher education credits in technology and technology education combined. The degree must include a degree project.

To be accepted, it is also required that the applicant can communicate well in English, both orally and in writing, as well as any other skill necessary to take advantage of the education. An interest in gender and power perspectives is a necessity for the position, and prior experiences of working with these questions is therefore a useful qualification.

Conditions of employment
Doctoral students will mainly devote themselves to their own education at the postgraduate level. Employment as a doctoral student is given for the time necessary for the completion of research studies in normal study time, which corresponds to a full-time postgraduate education for four years. At the first stage, the employment lasts for maximum one year, and it is then renewed for a maximum of two years at a time, provided that the individual study plan is followed. A doctoral student can, to a limited extent, work with teaching and administrative work equivalent to no more than twenty percent of full working hours. As a consequence, the term of employment can be extended to a maximum of five years. In addition, the term of employment can be extended further if there are special circumstances, such as parental leave or sick leave.

As a doctoral student, you will participate in the Graduate School of Gender Studies at Umeå University, which has since 2001 co-financed doctoral students at all of Umeå University’s faculties. As a doctoral student at the Graduate School of Gender Studies your will be part of a cross-disciplinary environment and has double residence, within the subject where you are admitted and also in the Graduate School of Gender Studies. You will take part in a unique and dynamic research environment, in which about 30 PhD students are participating in.

The studies start on September 1, 2023. The workplace is Umeå University. Postgraduate education is a campus-based education and cannot be organized as distance education. The doctoral student is also expected to participate actively in the department’s research environment. The salary is decided based on a local agreement of salaries for doctoral students.

According to the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance (Chapter 12, Section 2), the decision on employment as a doctoral student cannot be appealed.

More information: general syllabuses.

Application
You apply through the e-recruitment system. An application should include:

  1. Description of your research interests and how your interests connect to the focus area of this announcement (maximum 1 page)
  2. Personal letter: qualifications, your background, and what motivates you to apply for a doctoral position in this research field (maximum 1 page).
  3. CV/Curriculum vitae including your contact information, a well-structured description of your education and professional experience, including, for example, in-service teacher training and curriculum development.
  4. An official transcript of courses taken, and grades received from your home university.
  5. Certificate of degrees as pdf.
  6. Essays, project theses, and other types of publications, including popular science texts as long as they are relevant for the research field (e.g., articles in teacher journals) as pdf.
  7. Other qualifications relevant to the employment.
  8. Contact information to two reference persons.

Welcome to submit your application on 20 February 2023 the latest.

On the one hand we open up new dimensions and opportunities of using digital technology for the preservation and restoration of cultural goods; on the other, provide opportunities for innovating business models to produce new and high-quality products, contributing to the creation of new markets, novel forms of entrepreneurship, and collaborations between crafts and cultural and creative industries. We selected five regional ecosystems that have a long tradition of craft: Dals Långed, Venice area, Bornholm, Bassano del Grappa territory, and Faroe Islands, in which we will conduct R&I activities and put in place strategies for creating long-term impact. These activities integrate concepts including design-driven innovation, social innovation, creativity, sustainability, entrepreneurship, circular economy, digital and cutting-edge technologies, and the New European Bauhaus.

Candidates are expected to do a two-fold contribution to the Hephaestus project. First, the candidate is expected to participate in the R&I activities at Bornholm, which will include mapping and analysing controversies in craft ecosystems. Second, the candidate is expected to participate in the R&I activities on Bassano del Grappa which will include mapping and analysing the creation and use of digital archives of craft. Hence, some familiarity with ethnographic studies and/or archival studies is considered qualifying for the position.

Participating in these two work-packages of the Hephaestus project will provide the candidate with ample opportunity to develop their own independent research project. We invite candidates from different disciplinary backgrounds in the humanities, social sciences and business studies, such as art studies, history, philosophy, sociology, political science, entrepreneurship, innovation management and organisation studies. In their application, candidates are required to draft a theoretically grounded research proposal with a clear empirical focus.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Archival studies of craft
  • Archival ethnography and ethnography of archiving
  • Science and Technologies Studies mapping and analysing controversies in craft ecosystems
  • Analysis, comparison, of business models in circular economy businesses
  • Entrepreneurship processes in creative organizations
  • Developing art-based research as methodology for understanding craft processes and craft ecosystems
  • Craft and technology
  • How aesthetics and economy relate to craft as part of cultural and creative business
  • Challenges with growth in craft businesses

The Department of Business Humanities and Law is dedicated to an integrated approach to the contemporary challenges facing business and society drawing on the humanities, interdisciplinary social sciences and law. It emphasizes both problem-oriented research to understand those challenges and learning to build the life-long capabilities necessary to address them. Faculty within the Department of Business Humanities and Law have research backgrounds in all areas of law, politics, sociology, philosophy, history, anthropology, literature, theology, aesthetics, design and innovation, tourism and leisure management, cultural economics, leadership and strategy, pedagogic study, and other areas.

The position will be affiliated with the Entrepreneurship, Ethics & Leadership Unit. What unites faculty is an overriding concern for the organization of the human within its multiple environments and, by implication, a research interest in the interdisciplinary ‘conversation’ between humanities and social sciences. BHL also participates in numerous interdisciplinary cross-CBS activities. In line with this concern, the PhD should demonstrate a capacity to bridge across several of these environments.

The three-year PhD programme at CBS gives you the opportunity to conduct research under the supervision of CBS’s associate professors and professors, supported by research related PhD courses. The programme is highly international, and the PhD student is expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time at another research institution as a visiting scholar.

    Doctoral Research Fellow in law – FME NorthWind 

    Doctoral Research Fellow in law – FME NorthWind 

    Job description

    A position as Doctoral (PhD) Research Fellow is available at the Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law, Faculty of Law, University of Oslo.

    The position is externally funded and forms part of the research project NorthWind – Norwegian Research Center on Wind Energy, which is a Research Center for Environmentally Friendly Energy (FME). The host institution for the project is Sintef in Trondheim. The Doctoral Research Fellow will have his/ hers workplace at the Scandinavian Institute for Maritime Law, Department for energy and resource law, in Oslo. The Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law is a partner with Sintef in the project.

    More about the position

    The Doctoral Research Fellow will contribute to work package 5 (WP5) in the NorthWind project on sustainable offshore wind development, and is expected to write a doctoral thesis on contracts related to the planning, development and operation of offshore wind projects. The overall purpose of WP5 is to develop “tools and insights for sustainable development of wind energy to create a successful export industry, reduce cost and uncertainty, and resolve environmental and societal conflicts”. The project will form part of subgroup 1, which focuses, among other things, on contracts and business models for the development and operation of offshore wind projects, including how different solutions can contribute to innovation, cost-efficiency and circular economy (“materials circularity”). The doctoral Research Fellow is expected to write a doctoral thesis on issues that fall within this topic, and must expect to work closely with the other project participants involved in WP5. 

    Relevant topics should be connected with contracts and contract models adapted to the special concerns relating to offshore wind. A possible approach could be to identify key contracts/performance elements and risk issues related to the delivery, installation and operation of offshore wind turbines, and analyse these in the light of current or possible contract solutions and the contractual background law. The dissertation may take as its starting point fundamental questions of contract law that arise at the intersection between traditional areas of contract such as sale of goods, manufacturing/construction law and maritime law. Particular questions relate to the need for new technology and development solutions (especially in the case of floating offshore wind) and the allocation of responsibility and risk in this regard, and to the regulation of project management (variation order mechanisms, etc.) in the case of complex deliveries consisting of different performance elements and long supply chains. It may be relevant to take as a starting point established contract models and solutions from the Norwegian offshore petroleum industry and look at how these are relevant for/can be adapted to offshore wind. Another possible approach could be to look at the relationship between relevant public law rules (including the licensing system and licensing conditions) and relevant contracts and contract models. Procurement law issues may also be relevant. These examples are not exhaustive. Other issues and approaches can also be considered.

    The thesis should be based on Norwegian or Nordic contract law and/or contract tradition within relevant fields. The thesis can be a monograph or based on 3-5 articles.

    For more information about the center and its research and industrial partners, see https://www.northwindresearch.no.

    The period of appointment is preferably for a period of four years with 75% research and 25% teaching duties, alternatively three years without teaching duties. A four-year fellowship requires that the candidate can contribute to the current teaching needs of the Faculty of law.

    Qualification requirements and personal skills

    • A Norwegian five-year master’s degree in in law, or equivalent education, is required at the time of application.
    • Normally, the applicant should have grades that place the person in the top 10-15 % of the graduates in the subject. This also applies to the master’s thesis.

    Postdoctoral Fellow in Palaeogenetics and the Deterioration of Ancient DNA in Bone

    About the position

    The University of Stavanger invites applicants for a two-year position as Postdoctoral Fellow in Palaeogenetics and the deterioration of ancient DNA (aDNA) in bone, at the Museum of Archaeology, Department of Conservation.

    The objective of the position is to strengthen research, and to give researchers/scholars holding a doctoral degree the opportunity for further qualification towards top academic positions.

    The position commences 01/01/2024 and is a 100% research position.

    The position is externally funded by the Research Council of Norway and associated with the project Future Past: Future preservation of past life: A multidisciplinary investigation into preservation of ancient biological remains from medieval cemeteries.

    The selected project will be mainly carried out at the University of Stavanger, but also for up to six months with Professor Tom Gilbert’s group at the Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics, the Globe Institute, the University of Copenhagen. The aDNA data will be generated and the initial bioinformatic analyses will be undertaken in Copenhagen. The appointee will work full time on the project and participate in the academic communities at both institutions.

    About the Future Past project

    In the study of past humans, few finds are more telling than the remains of humans themselves. Bone and teeth have always been important evidence for archaeologists and have only become more central following the development of new methods for analysing ancient DNA and proteins. Such biomolecules tell stories of individuals and populations through time. Unfortunately, the material is sensitive to decay and contamination. This can create challenges for analytical work and can limit the possibilities for reconstructing past life. Therefore, it is essential to understand how organic remains degrade or are preserved. This is not easy. These are complex materials buried in a complex environment over hundreds and thousands of years. Biomolecules such as DNA and proteins, furthermore, are invisible to the naked eye. Which factors influence the preservation of archaeological biological remains from macro to molecular level? To investigate this, the Future Past project is carrying out both an excavation in a medieval cemetery in Stavanger, and analysis of skeletal remains in the collections of the Museum of Archaeology (UiS), recovered from Stavanger and the surrounding areas.

    The project uses a multi-proxy approach to describe both environmental conditions (soil geochemistry, palynology, entomology, soil lipid analysis), and skeletal preservation (bone histology and chemistry, stable isotope analyses and ancient DNA) at different scales, in- and ex situ. The project combines traditional archaeology with environmental science and molecular biology, using state-of-the-art methods for the analysis of biological remains and environmental conditions. The overall goal of the project aim is to contribute to the improvement of methods to secure and store this type of valuable but fragile source materials. Another aim is to carry out detailed bioarchaeological analyses of a subset of the skeletal collections under study. The archaeological remains and bioarchaeological analyses have the potential to provide new insights into who the first inhabitants of Stavanger were and how the city developed in relation to the surrounding areas. The project will illustrate the value of the bioarchaeological archive, depending on environmental conditions and nature of preservation.

    This advertised position aims to recruit a team member whose work will focus on the analysis of aDNA data generated from the medieval skeletal remains in the museum’s collections. The principal aim is to understand the degradation of endogenous DNA, which microorganisms contribute to this, and how different environments bring about its contamination. Tasks will include generating aDNA data from the skeletons, as well as analysing data from both the host and microorganisms to better understand degradation and contamination processes. Targeted research into pathogens and genetic characterisation of the skeletal remains (e.g. geographic origins and kinship) will also be undertaken.

    Project proposal

    You must submit a description and plan for carrying out a research project within the subject area specified. The project proposal must demonstrate how you would carry out the proposed research work, what the key issues and hypotheses will be, what theories and methods you will apply, the publication channels, and a timetable for carrying out the work.

    It must be clear from your application in what way the project will support the aims of Future Past, and in what way it will further develop your skills and competence. The project proposal will be included in the assessment of your competency.

    The final project description and progress plan will be drawn up in consultation with the supervisor(s) during the first three months of the Postdoctoral period. It is a prerequisite that you complete the project during the employment period.

    Qualification requirements

    You must have a Ph.D. in a subject area that is relevant for the project. Your doctoral thesis must have been submitted for examination by the application deadline for the position and defended before taking up the position.

    The main purpose of the postdoctoral work is to study the preservation (quantity, quality, and contamination) of ancient DNA, mainly human. Secondary objectives are to perform the genetic characterisation of human and pathogenic DNA. Consequently, prior skill required include experience in the extraction and sequencing of aDNA, as well as of computational methods for analysing ancient human and microbial data. The material under study is mainly medieval human remains in the collections of the Museum of Archaeology, UiS.

    You must have a good command of both oral and written English. Knowledge of a Scandinavian language is an advantage.

    In the assessment the following criteria will be emphasised:

    • relevance, quality and feasibility of your proposed project
    • submitted scientific work and your personal skills for completing the project within the time frame
    • international experience and network
    • good teamwork and communication skills and ability to participate in research communities across organisational units
    • ability to work independently in a structured manner
    • motivation, sense of responsibility and accountability, work capacity and enthusiasm for research
