One doctoral studentship in Comparative Literature

Huddinge

Ref AP-2022/783

Södertörn University is a higher education institution in Stockholm that conducts education, research and collaboration with the surrounding community for sustainable societal development. Education and research are conducted in the humanities, social sciences, technology and natural sciences. The university also provides police and teacher education programmes with intercultural profiles. A significant amount of our research is multidisciplinary and specialises in the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe. At Södertörn University we combine subjects, perspectives, people and experiences, searching for surprising syntheses, challenges and development.

Södertörn University welcomes proposals for doctoral theses in Comparative Literature.

Comparative Literature has been a subject at Södertörn University since 1999 and has two specialisations: “drama, text, theatre” and “general comparative literature studies”. Both specialisations include elements of creative writing. The subject offers courses at first and second-cycle levels (Bachelor’s and Master’s), as well as third-cycle studies (doctoral level). Studies in comparative literature investigate research issues and themes associated with the history of literature and drama as well as with theoretical and thematic studies. Education and research emphasise the comparative analysis of literary and drama texts based on modern critical theory, such as gender theory, postcolonial theory, animal studies, and media theory.

Doctoral education at the Department of Comparative Literature is part of the research area of Critical and Cultural Theory, which is an interdisciplinary research environment with seven subjects in the humanities. Research focuses on critically motivated studies of cultural artefacts and human practices. For more information, please click here. For a Swedish version click here.

Huddinge

Ref AP-2022/690

Education and research are conducted in the humanities, social sciences, technology and natural sciences. The university also provides police and teacher education programmes with intercultural profiles. A significant amount of our research is multidisciplinary and specialises in the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe. At Södertörn University we combine subjects, perspectives, people and experiences, searching for surprising syntheses, challenges and development.

The School of Social Sciences offers research and education in Business Studies, Economics, International Relations, Journalism, Political Science, Psychology, Public Law, Social Work and Sociology.

Doctoral studentship in the project “Sustaining Civil Society in the Context of Multiple Crises”
Södertörn University welcomes doctoral proposals in Social Work, to be conducted within the research project: “Sustaining Civil Society in the Context of Multiple Crises: Hubs of Engagement in Central and Eastern Europe and Sweden”. The project runs from 2023 to 2028 and it is financed by the Foundation for Baltic and East European studies and located at the department of Social Work at the School of Social Sciences. The project includes Poland, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Czechia, and Sweden, so we strongly recommend that your doctoral research has a geographical link to the Baltic Sea region and/or the post-communist area of Europe, and either offers a comparative approach or includes other countries in the region, that are not yet included in the project.  

Description of the doctoral position
This doctoral position in Social Work includes admission to third-cycle education, i.e. doctoral studies, and employment on a doctoral studentship. The intended outcome is a PhD. The successful applicant will write their thesis as part of the “Sustaining Civil Society in the Context of Multiple Crises” research project. As a doctoral student, you will take doctoral courses, participate in research seminars, in national and international research activities and in the work of the projects research group. Your main task, however, is to conduct research and write a doctoral thesis. Supervisors will be assigned to guide you. The programme covers 240 credits, which is the equivalent of four years of full-time study. During this period, the position is fully funded.

Assessment criteria
During the evaluation of an applicant’s eligibility, special emphasis is placed on previously completed written academic work (in particular the Master’s dissertation, research papers, and research publications) that is submitted.

The submitted research plan is also important for the assessment process. The research plan should contain a preliminary subject for the applicant’s doctoral thesis, and briefly outline the purpose, aims, theoretical perspectives, methods, and timeline for the study. The research plan should further explicate the study’s relevance to the research project and to social work. The research plan should also clarify which countries in the Baltic Sea region and/or the post-communist part of Europe the thesis will focus on.

The basis for selection among the eligible applicants to third-cycle studies in Social Work is stated in the General Syllabus for third-cycle programmes in Social Work. When assessing the applicant’s submitted academic texts, research plan, and other documentation, special emphasis is placed on:

One doctoral studentship in Media and Communication Studies as part of the The Digital Welfare State research project funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation

Huddinge

Ref AP-2022/614

Södertörns högskola (Södertörn University) in south Stockholm is a dynamic institute of higher education with a unique profile and high academic standard. A large proportion of the university staff holds doctorates and there is a strong link between undergraduate education and research. Södertörn University has around 13 000 students and 840 employees. Undergraduate and postgraduate education and research are conducted in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Technology and Education. Our site is in Flemingsberg. Södertörn University is an equal opportunities employer.

Södertörn University welcomes proposals for doctoral theses in Media and Communication Studies, to be conducted within the research project: “The Digital Welfare State”. This project explores investigates the extensive implementation of automated decision-making in the welfare sector across Europe, and is one of the first to systematically link automation to questions of falling trust, declining civic participation and, by extension, challenges for democracy. Data-based infrastructures for public administration are shaping not only welfare provision, but also state-citizen relations and issues relating to ethics and accountability, human agency in relation to complex socio-technical systems, and biases and inequalities.

The project is premised on three major developments: 1) the major shift towards datafication and digitalisation of large parts of society 2) major changes in the organisation of the welfare state 3) declining trust in democracy. It foregrounds the perspective of citizens in terms of both the introduction process and its democratic implications. Combining extensive mapping, surveys, in-depth interviews and expert interviews, the project engages with the practices and experiences, as well as the attitudes and implications of automated decision-making in the welfare sector. These areas will be explored in Sweden with links to the European context. The project provides an in-depth and cutting-edge understanding of the process of automating welfare from a citizen perspective, producing highly relevant insights into how automated decision-making can support but also harm democracy.

Media and Communication Studies at Södertörn University is one of Sweden’s leading environments for media research and education. Research and education are focused on the contemporary digitised media landscape, founded on a historically informed understanding in which new communication technologies and their contexts are related to their predecessors. The research environment currently comprises around 20 researchers/teachers including six full professors, six associate professors (docents), and nine doctoral students. All our doctoral students have an international profile, and the working language of the doctoral programme is English. For more information, please click here. For a Swedish version click here.

Doctoral education at the Department of Media and Communication Studies is part of the research area of Critical Cultural Theory, which is an interdisciplinary research environment which consists of seven subjects in the humanities. Research focuses on critically motivated studies of cultural artefacts and human practices. For more information, please click here. For a Swedish version click here.

Description of the doctoral position
The PhD project should be linked to critical research on the digitalisation of welfare in the broadest sense. This may include studies of how citizens experience automation in the welfare sector, as well as the material and cultural conditions of digitalisation, datafication and automation, e.g. the technological infrastructures and social practices that are the underlying preconditions. The project should be situated within critical data studies as well as critical studies of digitalisation and related fields. The doctoral student will be part of an international and interdisciplinary research team. The successful applicant will write the thesis as part of the The Digital Welfare State research project. For more information about The Digital Welfare State, please contact the project manager (see below).

Entry requirements
The general entry requirements are:
1. a second-cycle qualification,
2. fulfilled requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second-cycle, or
