PhD on Populism and multilevel governance in Europe – Responses to populist parties in Denmark and Sweden

The position will be filled according to the Agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC) and Job Structure for Academic Staff at Universities.  

Department of Social Sciences and Business, Roskilde University, invites applications for a position as PhD on Populism and Multilevel governance in Europe from 1st of September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position as PhD is limited to a period of 3 years.

Description of the PhD project
The position is part of the ‘Populism and Democratic Defence in Europe’ Project, funded by the Carlsberg Foundation’s Challenges for Europe programme (CF20-0008). The project is led by Professor (MSO) Angela Bourne, in collaboration with scholars from Aarhus University, Lund University and Universities of Wroclaw and Warsaw in Poland. The aim of the project is to identify how liberal democracies can respond to populist pressures in a way that is both effective and legitimate. It combines empirical case studies examining the effectiveness of national and supranational (European) initiatives against populist parties and normative analysis of the consistency of these initiatives with liberal democratic values. For a full description of the project, please contact Angela Bourne (bourne@ruc.dk)

The doctoral student is expected to undertake an empirical analysis of the nature and effects of initiatives opposing populism in Denmark and Sweden. More specifically, the PhD student will examine how Danish and Swedish public authorities, political parties and civil society groups – as well as EU institutions, member states, and transnational organizations – engage with the Danish People’s Party and Sweden Democrats. The project will examine whether initiatives engaging with populists – where relevant – reduce the ability of populist parties to implement anti-democratic or illiberal policies; induce populist parties’ ideological moderation; undermine their organizational resources or intraparty cohesion; or undermine the legitimacy of populist claims. Initiatives opposing such coalitions include legal initiatives like criminal prosecutions for abuse of office, racism or hate-speech; political initiatives like exclusion – or alternatively – integration of populist parties in governing arrangements, and cultural initiatives, including social movement counter-mobilizations against populist parties, information campaigns and civic education programmes.

The doctoral student is expected to carry out this research in a way that benefits the general framework and goals of the project. This entails contributing to the development of theoretical knowledge about responses to populism and collecting new data about initiatives deployed against populists, and evaluating their effects. It is expected that the candidate will be able to undertake fieldwork in both countries, the costs of which are covered by the project. The PhD student is expected to live in Denmark during the semester.

Ph.D.position in Citizen Science – Patient and Public Engagement ind Clinical Health Research

The Doctoral School of People and Technology, Roskilde University, and Data and Development Support, Region Zealand invites applications for a fully funded interdisciplinary 3-year Ph.D. position in Citizen Science – Patient and Public Engagement in Clinical Health Research. We are looking for inspired and inspiring researchers who want to work in and contribute to an exciting, interdisciplinary research environment at the intersection of the social sciences and the health sciences. The position as Ph.D. scholar is limited to 3 years and starts at the earliest August 1th 2020.

Description of the PhD project
The title of the PhD project is: Ph.D. position in Citizen Science – Patient and Public Engagement in Clinical Health Research.

Patient and public engagement in health care research is an emerging field that focusses on the development of active partnerships between patients and/or members of the public and health care researchers. The term is used to describe researchers and patients and/or members of the public working together to develop research, which thereby is deemed relevant and useful to patient and public needs. Patient and public involvement has also increasingly become a marker of good quality research and research impact. However, current experiences with public and patient engagement in clinical research tend to be open-ended and sometimes un-reflexive. Current practices call for in depth research aiming to better understand and theorize the rationales, practicalities, and dilemmas of patient and public engagement in specific settings of clinical health research. Unanswered questions for example include what kind of set-ups and tools can allow different knowledge forms to interplay productively, what new kinds of competencies and facilitating practices are required, what constitutes successes and failures and how these might be evaluated, and how public inclusion and participation reconfigures the professional organizations, practices and positions involved.

The specific research design and the research question will be developed as part of the project. We are interested in both exploring hopeful cases as well as intervening in the practices studied through experiments – e.g. experiments that introduce researchers, patients and members of the public to selected methods and techniques for engagement in specific clinical health research projects. The research can build on existing work in the fields of Citizen Science, Patient and Public Involvement (PPI), Science and Technology Studies (STS), as well as other relevant participatory and critical approaches in order to design the research and the methodological and theoretical backdrop for the study. Here, different ways of using patient, public, researcher involvement in the research process is also of interest, i.e. as part of the empirical work, establishing the state of the art and/or dataanalysis.

The Doctoral School
You will be enrolled as a PhD student in the Ph.D. Program “Research in Health and Society”, in the Doctoral School of People and Technology .The program is concerned with critical social science and humanistic health research that may contribute to improving conditions for good and healthy lives and a healthy society. Equity, access, sustainability and welfare are guiding perspectives in the study of health strategies and institutional practices, as well as in the study of health in everyday life settings, in communities and as a part of identity and subjective experience. The Ph.D. study program is transdisciplinary, and holds expertise in qualitative ethnographic, interview, policy study, discourse analytical, action research methodologies and methods, and science and technology studies.

As a research fellow you will be associated with the research area Health promotion and health strategies. The research unit regards inequity and inequality in health as at the core of research and is concerned with societal, organisational ,ideological and technological transformations, which entail new roles and positions of citizens and patients, new forms of citizenship, changes in conceptualisations and practices of health and illness ,and also new positions and functions of professionals.

You will also be associated to the research area “Data and Development Support “, which is Region Zealand’s data owner and main supplier of business intelligence, analysis and consulting services related to research, innovation, and process improvement in the region including the four somatic hospitals and a regional psychiatry. The candidate will also form part of this crosscutting regional unit gaining experience and insights into research organization, support, and policy at the hospitals in Region Zealand.

Responsibilities and tasks
The PhD position is an educational position and the main tasks are in accordance with chapter 3, Ministerial Order on the PhD Programme at the Universities and Certain Higher Artistic Educational Institutions (https://ufm.dk/en/legislation/prevailing-laws-and-regulations/education/files/engelsk-ph-d-bekendtgorelse.pdf),

As tasks are included preparation of results for publication, presentation of work in progress and results at local university, national and international academic meetings, support for organizing research-related events at the university and in the Region Zealand, and 6 months of research-relevant teaching and dissemination at the two institutions.

Qualifications
You must hold a master’s degree or equivalent within the social sciences, humanities, or the life sciences.

Qualifications within the following areas are also required::
You are required to be enterprising, to possess good communication skills, and to be a visible, involved participant in the department’s daily activities, in addition to being willing to engage in disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration across the department.

The application must be submitted in English and excellent English skills are necessary for engaging in the academic life and for the written work. For the empirical work and dialogue with Danish citizens and researchers in Region Zealand in this specific research project, it is also mandatory that the applicant can speak and understand the written and oral Danish language.

We also emphasize the following qualifications:
Familiarity with STS concepts and/or experience with qualitative social science research methods is highly desirable. Experience with public engagement and participation is also considered an advantage. Lastly, the project requires a deep interest in working with the health care sector and across different disciplines and knowledge cultures. We are looking for an original, innovative researcher that both can contribute to theorizing as well as to the construction of better practices at a local and national level.

Assessment
In the assessment regarding employment consideration will be given to;

  • Relevant Master’s degree or equivalent (according to Danish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education: https://ufm.dk/en/education/recognition-and-transparency/transparency-tools/qualifications-frameworks/other-qualifications-frameworks/danish-qf-for-higher-education?set_language=en&cl=en).
