Democratic principles, equality and diversity are cornerstones of the University. We value the enriching presence of diverse backgrounds and competencies among students and staff. Read more about working at Karlstad University.

Description

At Karlstad University, English is offered at bachelor, master and doctoral levels. Our offering includes courses on all primary and secondary teacher training programmes, subject courses, as well as English for specific purposes. Research is conducted in both linguistics and literature, through participation in the designated strong Research Group for Culture Studies (KuFo) and the Centre for Language and Literature Education (CSL), affiliated to the strong Research on Subject-Specific Education (ROSE) group.

Doctoral studentship

A position as doctoral student comprises four years’ full-time studies and concludes with the award of a doctoral degree. A doctoral student works independently and is prepared to contribute to the department’s development work, and participate in teaching and administration. The successful applicant is expected to be based at Karlstad University and contribute actively to the departmental research environment and to KuFo.

Eligibility

General as well as specific entry requirements, determined by the university, have to be met for admittance to doctoral-level studies, and the applicant must be considered to have the capacity to complete a programme at the doctoral level successfully (Higher Education Ordinance, Ch. 7, Sec. 35). General entry requirements are fulfilled by a person who has earned a master’s degree and at least 240 ECTS credits of which at least 60 credits are studies at master’s level, or who in some other way in Sweden or abroad has acquired largely equivalent knowledge.

Specific entry requirements to the doctoral programme in English with specialisation in literature are fulfilled by a person who has earned at least 30 ECTS credits in English at master’s level, of which at least 15 ECTS credits must comprise an independent project.

Admission

Selection is based on individual assessment of the applicants’ qualifications and capacity to complete a programme at the doctoral level successfully. Selection is specifically based on applicants’ earlier study results and special weight is given to the quality of independent written degree projects completed as part of their earlier studies. In addition, the research proposal, in which applicants describe their thesis projects, language proficiency and the applicant’s intention to be in Karlstad and participate in the research environment are assessed. The successful applicant should have good social skills and should be able to work individually as well as in teams. At present, most doctoral students in English are men, and we therefore particularly encourage female applicants.

PhD Scholarship-Innovation in Healtcare

Do you want to study innovation in medical technologies? New technologies are being developed to facilitate remote healthcare services, particularly those that can be transferred from hospitals to people’s homes. The scaling of such businesses are challenging as they typically require changes in practices among healthcare personnel, as well as new business models for the companies that develop them.

BI Norwegian Business School, Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, has one vacant four-year position as a PhD-scholar within the area of healthcare innovation. The start date is August 1, 2019.

The Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship has about 40 faculty and 11 PhD students.  Our faculty is highly international (currently including 13 nationalities) with PhDs from some of the world’s best business schools (Harvard, Stanford, among others). The department hosts research centers in Healthcare, IT, Construction, and Ocean Industries, which arrange workshops and seminars, and generate data supporting faculty research. The doctoral program is an important part of BI’s vision of being one of the leading business schools in Europe. The accepted candidate will be offered close supervision and follow-up by the research faculty.

The position is partly funded by the Research Council of Norway through Centre for Connected Care (C3, https://c3connectedcare.org/en/). This is a center for research driven innovation (SFI) hosted by Oslo University Hospital and BI is a major research partner. C3 connects academics, clinicians, health care sector employees and life science- and other health industry related developers, to innovate, develop and accelerate a variety of patient centric healthcare solutions. The center includes 17 major partners, of which 5 are research institutions and the others are hospitals, municipalities, global technology providers like Siemens and Cerner, and a number of Norwegian technology based companies and start-ups.

The research group at BI working at C3 is interdisciplinary comprising both strategy/entrepreneurship research and marketing/public procurement research and using both qualitative and quantitative methods.

Main tasks

The research of the PhD-candidate must be relevant for work package 4 of C3, Healthcare Technology Service Innovation. In the coming years, work package 4 seeks to explore three overall questions:

  • What are the conditions and challenges for scaling distributed homebased medical and care services?
  • How may high-quality practices of such services be effectively shared and distributed across multiple sites and organizations?
  • What are viable business models for scaling such business cases? 

To pursue these questions, the candidate will undertake research that satisfies criteria for publishing in high-ranking international scientific journals. The PhD-student will participate actively in the research group at BI and C3.

Academic qualifications

For this position, we seek candidates with an interest in technology based innovation in healthcare. In particular, we look for candidates with skills and interests in qualitative research, including comparative case studies, and we welcome applications from students with a strong background in disciplines such as business, management, sociology, anthropology, political science, and geography.

Eligible applicants must have completed a Master of Science degree with thesis work, a research masters/Master of Philosophy degree, or a comparable degree relevant for the specialization in Strategy and Entrepreneurship by the early autumn of 2019, with a grade point average of B or higher. Final year Master of Science students are encouraged to apply.

Additional information about the doctoral program, admission requirements and the application can be obtained from the Doctoral Administration at BI Norwegian Business School (Email: phd@bi.no) and the department’s website (https://www.bi.edu/programmes-and-individual-courses/phd/strategic-management/). For further information about the C3 project, please contact Associate Professor Thomas Hoholm (thomas.hoholm@bi.no).

The PhD-specialization in Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Innovation

As a PhD-student in the Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, the student will follow the PhD specialization in Strategy, which focuses on developing doctoral students’ theoretical knowledge and methodological skills required to become a successful researcher within this area.

Wage

The four-year scholarships are currently NOK 479 300,- per year (will be adjusted during 2019). The positions provide for automatic membership in the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund (Statens Pensjonskasse). The scholarship requires 25% of the teaching responsibilities of a full time professor position. Workplace will be BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, and at Oslo University Hospital. Some international travel will be expected for fieldwork purposes. 

Application

You are required to upload the following with your application:

  • Certificate of a Master of Science degree or equivalent, including transcripts of grades
  • Certificate of a Bachelor degree or equivalent, including transcript of grades
  • A Diploma Supplement or a similar document describing in detail the study and grade system and the rights for further studies associated with the obtained degree (https://www.nokut.no/en/about-nokut/international-cooperation/diploma-supplement/)

PhD in Sustainability Science

Lund University, Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS)

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University is one of the leading education and research institutions in Sweden and operates both in Lund and Helsingborg.

The Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS) is an institute hosting research and education to address sustainability challenges with a critical perspective and solutions-based approaches. Our research projects focus on sustainability challenges such as climate change, water conflicts, food security, land use changes and urbanisation, often conducted in international cooperation. LUCSUS strives to catalyse change, on both a local and a global level, for a more sustainable society and future. The educational programmes at LUCSUS include a Master’s programme (LUMES) and a PhD research school. As of 1 January 2019, LUCSUS is part of the Social Sciences faculty at Lund University.

Sustainability Science PhD programme
The PhD programme in sustainability science consists of 240 credits (equivalent to four years of fulltime studies); it concludes with the public defence of a doctoral thesis. The appointed doctoral student will receive a salary from the University for the four years, where their primary obligation is to complete the PhD studies. The PhD position also may involve departmental duties, mainly in the form of teaching of up to 20 per cent of full time working hours, in which case the position appointment will be extended by the equivalent number of hours. The doctoral student will have access to a work space at LUCSUS. The terms of employment for doctoral students are regulated in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance (HF), Chapter 5, Sections 1– 7.

The research project on ‘Recasting the disproportionate impacts of climate change extremes (DICE)`
The successful candidate will work within the department’s new, 4-year research project on expanding theories of climate governance to incorporate contemporary dynamics and challenges of L&D and the associated effects, in particular challenges to noneconomic wellbeing, and those posed to the Sustainable Development Goals. This is an international project coordinated by LUCSUS and involves partners in the US (University of Montana) and Bangladesh (International Centre for Climate Change and Development). The project aims to examine L&D effects across a range of communities – where people are affected and at what scale. Understanding tradeoffs in values and beliefs are core to advancing a social science contribution to L&D. What are emerging approaches to avert, minimize and address L&Ds and from whom? The project will focus on diverse communities, that have been exposed to specific extreme climate events, to identify perceptions of risk and impact (e.g. by class, ethnicity and gender). The project builds on a strong critical social science tradition but is interdisciplinary in scope and engages constructively with integrated assessment modelers, social scientists and policy makers.

General qualifications
The requirements for admission to third cycle courses and study programmes (in accordance with HF, Chapter 7, Section 35) are that the applicant meets the general and specific entry requirements that the higher education institution may have laid down, and is considered in other respects to have the ability required to benefit from the course or study programme (Swedish Code of Statutes 2010:1064). A person meets the general entry requirements for third cycle courses and study programmes if (s)he:

  • has been awarded a second cycle qualification,
  • has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second cycle
  • or has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or internationally.

Desired specific qualifications
The main research tasks for the position will be linked closely to the broader project’s objectives (briefly outlined above). The successful candidate will carry out independent and interdisciplinary research on L&D effects across a range of communities, which for example could involve interviews, discourse analysis and archival work. There will be scope to define own interests and priorities within the project’s larger set-up. The ideal PhD candidate for the position will have the following specific qualifications:

  • A Master’s degree in Sustainability Science, Human/Physical Geography, Human Ecology, Anthropology, Political Science, Sociology or a related field.
  • A strong and documented interest in climate change and climate politics
  • Ability to work both independently and as part of an interdisciplinary, inclusive and international research environment.
  • Excellent writing skills in English.
  • Enthusiasm to contribute to teaching at LUCSUS, and to work with students.
  • An affinity or experience with Agenda 2030 and in particular SDG 10, 13 and 16.

Assessment criteria
Only applicants who are eligible for third cycle studies may be appointed to a doctoral studentship. The applicants will be ranked based on an overall assessment of the quality of their proposal, their cover letter (including a description of motivation and specific qualifications), submitted thesis/theses, grades from previous studies, their overall personal suitability, and their interest and capacity to contribute to the overall goals of the research project. As third cycle studies in sustainability science are demanding, the applicant must be highly motivated and able to work independently under several time constraints. Good collaboration and communication skills are also required, as is proficiency in written and spoken English. Swedish language skills are a plus, but not a requirement.

Application procedure
Applications are to be submitted electronically via the Lund University application portal. The application must include:

  • A cover letter in English of max. 2 500 words. This should contain a brief presentation of yourself, your motivation and qualifications for carrying out PhD research. The letter should also contain a statement on why you would like to work on this specific project, how your qualifications make you suitable for the position, and what individual interests and priorities you would like to pursue (within the project’s overall aims) if your application were successful.
  • A CV in English (2 pages max) that demonstrates your qualifications for the third cycle programme in Sustainability Science (including academic publications, popular science publications, teaching experience, and communications experience, if relevant)
  • Degree and grade certificates. of previously completed studies (bachelors and master’s).
  • A copy of your degree thesis/theses, corresponding to at least 30 credits (30 credits Master’s degree thesis, or 15 credits Master’s degree thesis plus 15 credits Bachelor’s degree thesis).
  • Name and contact information of three professional references (note: letters of reference are not required in the first stage of application).

Interviews will be conducted with a shortlisted number of applicants during the final stages of the admission process.

Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and an asset. We kindly decline all sales and marketing contacts.

Two PhD positions in Environmental history/Environmental humanities, focusing on energy

8_Chalmersplatsen-1.jpg


The Department of Technology Management and Economics (TME) broadly researches the interaction between technology development, industrial systems, society, people and the environment. The research can be divided into three main research areas, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Supply Chain & Operations Management and Sustainability & Society Studies. The department is organized in six divisions for research and teaching and one support function and it hosts four research centres and the Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship. Our research is linked to several of Chalmers’ Areas of Advance.


Information about the division and the research
The Department of Technology Management and Economics at Chalmers University of Technology is looking for two PhD students in Environmental history/Energy humanities. The positions are placed at the Division of Science, Technology and Society (STS). The division researches and teaches History of Technology, History of Science, Environmental Humanities, Science and Technology Studies, Policy Studies, Industrial Dynamics and Ethics.

We offer two positions in two different projects funded by the Swedish Energy Agency:
1) Swedish petroculture: lessons for transitioning to a sustainable energy system (led by Anna Åberg): The research focus of this PhD-project is the history of Swedish petroculture. In order to transition from one energy system to a profoundly different one, it is at least as important to understand the social and cultural aspects of the transition process as it is to develop necessary technologies. This project will identify key aspects of how and why a dependence on oil was established in Sweden – including central actors, narrative frameworks, and decisive policies – as well as how and where it persists today, despite attempts to transition to more sustainable energy sources.

2) Men and energy. Studying different masculinities and technology within the energy sector (led by Martin Hultman): Historically, energy has up until this day been a very unequal sector dominated by men. The research in this PhD will extend and expand the foundational work done by ecofeminists developing new theory about masculinities in connection to energy; it will innovate further a theoretical framework with three concepts (or figurations) of ‘industrial/breadwinner masculinities’, ‘ecomodern masculinities’ and ’ecological masculinities’ in relation to historical and/or contemporary cases studies.

Major responsibilities
As a PhD candidate, your major responsibility is to pursue doctoral studies in relation to a specific research aim. At large, PhD studies include a number of doctoral courses, literature reviews, designing research studies, collecting and analysing empirical data, and communicating the results of your research verbally and in writing, both in Swedish and in English. The exact focus of the work will be decided in interaction with the main supervisor.

As a PhD candidate you take an active role in the specific research project in preparing for and collecting empirical data, conducting analysis and presenting results. Results are expected to continuously be presented at seminars and international conferences.

The position may also include teaching in Chalmers undergraduate level courses, supervising student projects or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD candidate you must have a Master’s degree with a minimum of 90 Swedish credits in History of Technology, History of Science, History of Ideas, Economic History, History, Science and Technology Studies, Cultural Studies or other relevant fields, or a MSc level degree in Engineering. Additional qualifications for applicants with a MSc level Engineering degree are: Master’s thesis on a historical subject, particularly History of Science or History of Technology, as well as courses in History of Science, History of Technology or corresponding.

The Master’s degree has to be obtained at the start of the PhD-employment (planned for September 1, 2019).

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.

PhD scholarship at the Department of Political Science

The Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for a number of Ph.D. scholarships in Public Administration. The department welcomes qualified applications in all aspects of public administration and organization. At the present time, there is a particular interest in enhancing research in the following thematic areas:

  • Behavioral Public Administration.

Public policies are rarely self-executing. Across policy areas, the delivery and performance of the public services are a product of what the public employees think and do. Knowledge is needed on how psychological forces and mechanisms shape the attitudes and behaviors of citizens, public employees, and public managers. How do heuristics and cognitive biases affect discretion and decision-making in state-citizen interactions? What can we do to minimize the occurrence of illegitimate biases and disparity in public services provision? Behavioral Public Administration draws on psychological theories and experimental methods to investigate critical questions like this relating to decision-making in administrative settings and to broader societal issues concerning effectiveness, efficiency, and social equity in public administration.

  • Health care.

Current policy responses in health care attempt to facilitate coordination and integration of care at the local level while centralizing political and administrative power to the national level. There is a need to investigate the background for such reform ideas and to assess their political and administrative consequences in light of future challenges. The double pressure of increasing needs and technological developments has also spurred a renewed debate about prioritization within health care. Health economists have contributed extensively to this debate, but there is a need to assess the prioritization instruments and institutions from a political science perspective.

  • Digitalization and machine learning.

Digitalizing administrative procedures holds a potential for increasing efficiency, but also raises critical issues such as how technology influence inequity and effectiveness as well as helping behavior and innovation. Furthermore, present developments, where administrative professionals and citizens gets detached in time and space is in stark contrast to the importance given to face-to face relations in organizational research. However, particular types of digital communication have the advantage of being very accessible, and availability is crucial for helping behavior – the help needs to be within reach. Thus, there is a strong need to develop knowledge on how helping behavior can be mediated with digital communication.

  • Governance reforms

Governance reforms are ongoing processes these years both at the cross-cutting administrative policy level and in many specific policy fields. Organisational structures are reorganized, management and evaluations systems are restructured and new norms for good leadership are developed. Knowledge is needed on reform dynamics. How do reform ideas come about? How are reforms decided on, implemented and in some cases evaluated, and which impact do they have? How do reforms challenge established institutional arrangements in the interface between politics, professions and citizens expectations. Projects may focus on cross-cutting administrative policy reforms or on reforms in specific policy fields.

The candidate 

Preferred candidates will have demonstrated a keen interest in behavioral or organizational aspects of political science and public administration. We are looking for candidates with strong analytical skills as well as with both qualitative and quantitative methodological skills.

The PhD programme provides PhD students with strong research training which opens up a window of opportunity to a variety of careers within the private and public sectors. The programme includes the drafting of a PhD thesis, active participation in research networks, PhD courses, teaching, and other forms of knowledge dissemination.

PhD fellowship within International Environment and Development Studies

Application deadline: 28 March 2019

PhD fellowship within International Environment and Development Studies

About the position


The Department of International Environment and Development Studies (Noragric) at the Faculty of Landscape and Society at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) has a vacant 3-year PhD position related to Extractive resource processes.

Exploitation of exhaustible resources such as oil, gas, and minerals is often contentious, in part because of the manner in which extraction pitches powerful corporate interests against those of local communities, and the tangible traces that extraction tends to leave on both natural and social environments.

Despite efforts to improve corporate practices and safeguard local interests, such as the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, challenges remain in a number of dimensions. These include a lack of transparency, corrupt practices, continuing neglect of social responsibility, the local social, political and economic consequences, and a failure to adequately protect sensitive natural environments.

Extractive industries, straddling the range of intra-state governmental, economic, and environmental levels, present us with a number of issues at the macro, middle, and micro scales, such as resource governance, foreign direct investment, economic dependence, resource conflicts, the ‘resource curse’, human and/or indigenous rights, institutional innovation and collaboration, local participation and organization, poverty, inequality, and resistance.

The successful applicant will engage empirically with one or more specific cases of extraction and their local effects, but also indicate how cases connect to broader social and economic issues (cf. issues mentioned above). Relevant academic fields include – but are not limited to – political ecology, anthropology of development, science and technology studies, environmental & social justice, and environmental history.

The Department invites applicants to submit project proposals for critically investigating extractive resource processes.

Main tasks

It is expected that the appointed candidate is admitted to the PhD programme in International Environment and Development Studies. The successful candidate must submit a study plan during the first months of the appointment, which outlines the planned content and progress of the work towards completing a PhD degree within the PhD scholarship period.

The PhD programme consists of mandatory and elective courses with oral and written examinations and a major research component. The applicant is advised to visit the website for detailed information regarding PhD regulations at NMBU and information about the PhD programme at Noragric.

Qualifications and skills


Required academic qualifications

  • The applicant must have an academically relevant education corresponding to a five-year Norwegian degree programme, where 120 credits are at master’s degree level. The applicant must have a documented strong academic background from previous studies, and be able to document proficiency in both written and oral English.
  • The successful applicant must meet the conditions defined for admission to a PhD programme at NMBU and Noragric.

Additional required academic qualifications

  • research-based master’s degree with a GPA of B or above in a relevant field
  • Unless the applicant’s mother tongue is English, documentation of English proficiency: IETLS score > 7.0, TOEFL > 92

Desired academic qualifications

Research or work experience within one or more of the following academic fields: political ecology, anthropology of development, science and technology studies, environmental & social justice, and environmental history.

Required personal skills

  • Well-structured in approach to work and time use
  • Independent and responsive
  • Motivated to manage a research project
  • Enjoy interdisciplinary and collaborative work

Remuneration and information


The position is placed in government pay scale position code 1017 PhD Fellow salary grade 51 (NOK 449 400 per year). For particularly well-qualified applicants, alternative wage placement can be considered.

Employment is conducted according to national guidelines for University and Technical College PhD scholars.

The expected starting date is September 1st 2019.

PhD scholarship with a focus on the future of business and management education in the context of digital transformation of education

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of the future of universities in the context of digital transformation of education.    

The successful applicant will be part of the project Research in Blended Learning (RiBL), which will run until the end of 2022. The aim of the project is the construction of new knowledge about the future of technology-supported teaching and learning in Higher Education and its consequences and prospects for student learning in the context of business and management studies. Besides being part of RiBL, the applicant will be affiliated with the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy.   

The PhD scholarship will focus on the exploration of the transformational impact of digital technologies on teaching and learning in business and management education. In recent years, we have witnessed how the introduction of digital technologies are changing the mode of teaching and learning in higher education. Classrooms are flipped, which means that knowledge transmission including lecturing is increasingly provided online. This transformation frees up time in the classroom for dialogue and interactive learning, thereby potentially facilitating active student engagement and interaction. While several studies have looked at technology-enhanced learning, less focus has been put on how the possibilities brought about by digitalization transforms the face-to-face teaching and learning situation.   
The topic for this PhD is how pedagogy and learning philosophy can inform learning in the digital context, and how digital technologies can help to create a more relation-based and interactive learning environment in business and management learning. Applicants are moreover expected to focus on exploring the future development and understanding of teaching and learning that the digital transformation of education capacitates as well as how the future of education will change the university as institution.    

Research topics   
Relevant research topics that may be pursued include: 

  • How can digital transformation of education in business and management prepare students (skills, competences, mindsets) to become part of the future digital workforce of the 21st century? 
  • What will be the focus of the learning process in the future and what changes to the role of the teacher will this imply? 
  • How can new digital technologies facilitate and constrain learning in business and management education? 
  • What will be the role, business model, and value proposition of business and management education in a digital society in which there is free access to knowledge? 
  • How can business and management education better integrate formal, non-formal, and informal learning modes in the digital age? 
  • How can business and management education change its role as a gatekeeper of knowledge to facilitator of learning? 
  • How can we rethink the link between business and management education and industry in the digital age (lifelong learning)? 
  • How can business and management education support the integration of non-human capabilities (learning algorithms, AI, big data analytics) with human capabilities (judgment, prediction, decision-making)? 

To learn more about the research and education profile of the department, please visit mpp’s homepage.
