Doctoral Research Fellowship within the “CLIMA”-project

Doctoral Research Fellowship within the “CLIMA”-project

The Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies

Job description

A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) is available at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies (ILN), University of Oslo.

The PhD position is funded by the research Council of Norway and is associated with the research project CLIMA Cross-linguistic influence in multilingual acquisition (project number: 324318), 2021-2026. CLIMA is a collaborative project between NTNU the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and the University of Oslo and also involves extensive international collaboration. The successful candidate is expected to present and conduct a research project connected to Work Package 1 in the CLIMA project. In addition to the PhD position at UiO, there will be a corresponding position at NTNU, connected to Work Package 2. See PhD Candidate in multilingualism

For more information about CLIMA, see https://www.ntnu.edu/isl/clima

About the project

Acquiring multiple languages is extremely common. CLIMA addresses gaps in research on multilingualism concerning the role of cross-linguistic influence (CLI) and learner-internal factors in third language acquisition (L3A). An ongoing debate addresses the question of how previously learned languages affect acquisition of the grammar of an L3, and of the source and nature of CLI on morphosyntactic structures in L3A. Research within CLIMA is organized in 3 work packages. Work Package 1: Norwegian as L3, Work Package 2: German, French or Spanish as L3, and Work Package 3: Prior language knowledge in L3 acquisition.

CLIMA investigates L3A of word order, specifically placement of finite verbs, which is central to language competence. Verb placement has been studied previously in L3A research, but different studies have found contradictory evidence with respect to CLI over the course of acquisition. CLIMA focuses on participants with systematically different combinations of first, second, and third language. Participants in Work Package 1 have Spanish, French or German as L1, English as L2, and Norwegian as L3, while participants in Work Package 2 are L1 speakers of Norwegian with L2 English and French, Spanish or German as L3. These languages differ systematically with regard to verb placement, and CLIMA investigates the influence of these linguistic differences. The project also has a strong focus on learner-internal factors and on the properties of prior language knowledge, both in terms of second-language proficiency and use, and of metalinguistic knowledge (Work Package 2). We furthermore ask whether the previous inconclusive results within research on L3 acquisition of verb placement may in part be due to methodological differences; CLIMA has a particular focus on methodology and triangulates experimental methods to avoid an unwanted association between methods and outcomes. CLIMA will contribute to our understanding of the human language learning capacity in general and of multilingualism in particular, as well as for additional language learning and teaching.

The work and responsibility of the project

The advertised position is connected primarily to Work Package 1 Norwegian as L3. Participants in this WP will be adult learners of Norwegian L3 living in Norway, with L1 German, French or Spanish and L2 English. Work in this WP will address questions related to cross-linguistic influence of structural properties and developmental trajectories, where the same participants are tested at different proficiency levels. WP1 in CLIMA is responsible for the development of a standardized proficiency test for Norwegian.

The successful candidate is expected to work closely with the PhD candidate hired at NTNU (WP2: German, French or Spanish as L3). Both candidates will also contribute to WP3: Prior language knowledge in third language acquisition

The person appointed will be affiliated with the Faculty’s organized research training. The academic work is to result in a doctoral thesis that will be defended at the Faculty with a view to obtaining the degree of PhD. The successful candidate is expected to join the existing research milieu or network and contribute to its development. Read more about the doctoral degree.

The appointment is for a duration of 3 years. All PhD Candidates who submit their doctoral dissertation for assessment with a written recommendation from their supervisor within 3 years or 3 ½ years after the start of their PhD position, will be offered, respectively, a 12 or 6 month Completion Grant.

Qualification requirements

  • A Master’s degree or equivalent in Linguistics, Multilingualism, language studies or another relevant field. The Master’s degree must have been obtained and the final evaluation must be available by the application deadline.  
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in Norwegian, Swedish or Danish, and in English, see Language requirements
  • Personal suitability and motivation for the position.

Preferred qualification

  • Experience with previous research within language acquisition or multilingualism
  • Experience with research on Norwegian, Swedish or Danish
  • Experience with relevant methodologies

The CLIMA project is a joint project between UiO and NTNU. The successful candidate will be expected to work closely with the other researchers in the CLIMA project, and in particular with the PhD candidate at NTNU. In the hiring process for both PhD positions we will seek to hire candidates with complementary competence.

Applicants must provide a general contextualizing statement/proposal (maximum 3 pages) detailing how the candidate plans to contribute to the research done in Work Package 1.

To be eligible for admission to the doctoral programmes at the University of Oslo, applicants must, as a minimum, have completed a five-year graduation course (Master’s degree or equivalent), including a Master’s thesis of at least 30 ECTS. In special cases, the Faculty may grant admission on the basis of a one-year Master course following an assessment of the study programme’s scope and quality.

In assessing the applications, special emphasis will be placed on:

  • The project’s scientific merit, research-related relevance and innovation
  • The applicant’s estimated academic and personal ability to complete the project within the time frame
  • The applicant’s ability to complete research training

Doctoral Research Fellowship focusing on religious festivals in Asia

Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages

Job description

A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) focusing on religious festivals in Asia is available at the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages, University of Oslo.

The research initiative “Religious festivals in Asia” focuses on dynamics of change in religious festivals in East-, South-, and Southeast-Asia from a comparative perspective. Such religious festivals have been subject to processes of reinvestment, reinvention, and resignification over decades, and often centuries. To analyze that process, we zoom in on the dynamics between patronage “from above” and aspirations “from below.” For more information about the initiative, see THIS LINK. Applicants are invited to develop a PhD-project within the framework of this initiative on “Religious festivals in Asia”, limited to candidates working on festivals in India, Japan, Tibet, or Vietnam. The project description must be submitted as part of the application.

The academic work is to result in a doctoral thesis that will be defended at the Faculty with a view to obtaining the degree of PhD. The successful candidate is expected to join the existing research milieu or network and contribute to its development. Read more about the doctoral degree.

The appointment is for a duration of 3 years.

  • Competence in the language of the area of study.

Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) at the Department of Archaeology, Conservation and History

Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) at the Department of Archaeology, Conservation and History

Job description

A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) in history is available at the Department of Archaeology, Conservation and History, University of Oslo.

The position is associated with the Critical Historiography research group, whose members work on cross-chronological, problem-driven subjects with a strong emphasis on conceptual reflection.

More about the position

Applicants should propose a research project within the larger framework of the group’s focus project, “Good Work. The Value of Work in the long 20th Century”. “Good work” is a historical project, with a keen interdisciplinary interest, that enquires into the fundamental transformations global working conditions underwent since c. 1870, with a particular emphasis on perceptions and discourses in which these changes were reflected. It asks how large secular trends such as (de)industrialisation, tertiarisation, digitalisation, and globalisation affected working lives in Norway, Europe, and beyond, and how notions of value of, in, and through work changed in the process. The project thus endeavours to shed light on a key dimension of social and economic life in the twentieth century while also analysing the politically and culturally contentious issue of labour’s valuation. Its main aim is to provide critical interpretations of contemporary notions of “quality work” and explore its historically contingent meanings in different industrial and national contexts.

The project is broad and allows for different types of research, including case studies on individual industries, comparative perspectives between countries, analyses of transnational flows of ideas and information, and conceptual histories of key terms.

The person appointed will be affiliated with the Faculty’s organized research training. The academic work is to result in a doctoral thesis that will be defended at the Faculty with a view to obtaining the degree of PhD. The successful candidate is expected to join the existing research milieu or network and contribute to its development. Read more about the doctoral degree.

The appointment is for a duration of 3 years. All PhD Candidates who submit their doctoral dissertation for assessment with a written recommendation from their supervisor within 3 years or 3 ½ years after the start of their PhD position, will be offered, respectively, a 12 or 6 month Completion Grant.

Qualification requirements

  • A Master’s degree or equivalent in history, sociology, law, or other pertinent disciplines with a strong historical focus. The Master’s degree must have been obtained and the final evaluation must be available by the application deadline.
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in English, see Language requirements
  • Personal suitability and motivation for the position.

To be eligible for admission to the doctoral programmes at the University of Oslo, applicants must, as a minimum, have completed a five-year graduation course (Master’s degree or equivalent), including a Master’s thesis of at least 30 ECTS.

  • The applicant’s estimated academic and personal ability to complete the project within the time frame

PhD fellowship in neuroimaging

PhD fellowship in neuroimaging

Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Psychology, Center for Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition (LCBC)

The position

A 3-year position as Ph.D. Fellow is available at the Center for Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition (LCBC), at the Department of Psychology, University of Oslo. The position will fit a talented candidate highly interested in applying longitudinal, multimodal models on neuroimaging data and its relation to genetics and cognition. 

The research center

The goal of LCBC is to understand brain and cognitive changes and how to optimize them through the entire lifespan. LCBC is an active multidisciplinary research center, with a staff of about 25 full-time positions, including six faculty professors/researchers, several PostDocs and Ph.D. candidates, several programmers/engineers and full-time research assistants, extensive supporting personnel, and several affiliated international researchers. LCBC has excellent research infrastructure, including access to a 3T Siemens Prisma, PET and EEG, and neuropsychological and somatic test facilities. English is the inter-collegial language of the center. LCBC coordinates a large H2020 EU-funded project and has obtained four grants from the European Research Council (ERC). Further funding comes from the Research Council of Norway, the National Health Association, the Thon Foundation, and the University of Oslo. The group was in 2015 appointed status as “world-leading” as one of five at the University of Oslo, with special funding. More information can be found on www.oslobrains.no.

More about the position

The successful candidate will work on the brain foundations for episodic memory preservation and loss in older age, using multimodal, longitudinal magnetic resonance images (MRIs), genetic information and cognitive test scores from several thousands of individuals. This data offers a unique opportunity to model the heterogeneity, the different paths, of brain aging, and link it to genetic liabilities, cognitive change, and biomarker information. The recent availability of large longitudinal datasets together with state-of-the-art multivariate modeling frameworks will allow us to model the different trajectories of brain aging. The work will require programming in a language such as Python, R or, Matlab and will likely involve the use of neuroimaging software such as FreeSurfer and FSL. An important focus of the candidate will also be scientific dissemination, i.e., writing and publication. 

The main purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a Ph.D. degree. Hence, the research fellow must take part in the Department’s approved Ph.D. program.

The fellowship is for a period of three years. A 4th year can be considered with the addition of 25% teaching requirement, depending on the competence of the applicant and the needs of the center. 

The Ph.D. fellow is expected to collaborate extensively with other researchers at the center which includes psychologists, statisticians, and geneticists. The position will offer opportunities to develop high-quality research competence, work with leading experts in the field, and take part in the group’s extensive network of international collaborations. In particular, the candidate will work closely with the “Imaging the Change” project, supported by a grant from the Norwegian Research Council, led by Researcher Didac Vidal-Pineiro. The candidate will also have good opportunities to interact with other international collaborator groups.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Medieval History/Literature

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Medieval History/Literature

 

Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas 

Job description

A Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1352) is available at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is funded by the Research Council of Norway and is associated with the project ‘Narrative Hierarchies: Minor Characters in Byzantine and Medieval History Writing’ (grant nr. 324754). The candidate is expected to carry out research as part of the main project.

The position is available for a period of 2 years (full time).

The position may be extended for a third year, involving a research stay outside of Norway, subject to the successful acquisition of additional funding from the Research Council of Norway (Funding for Research Stays Abroad for Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellows).

This project aims to explore medieval power and gender relations in historiographical narrative. In medieval histories, kings, emperors, and other elite men typically occupy more prominent roles than labourers, women, eunuchs, slaves, soldiers, and foreigners. The unevenness with which attention, space, and importance are distributed between different types of characters produces hierarchies within these narratives. This research project sets out to analyse these narrative hierarchies, with a particular focus on non-elite and non-male minor characters.

The PI’s work will focus on a corpus of late Byzantine (c. 1200 – c. 1460) histories. Parallel to this work, the successful postdoctoral fellow, the PI, and external collaborators will explore several other contemporary historiographical traditions. These transhistorical studies will aim both to create a framework by which the study of Byzantine history writing can be meaningfully placed in conversation with wider medieval traditions of history writing and narrative and to reflect on the Byzantine tradition’s idiosyncrasies.

A detailed project description is available for applicants on request (please contact Matthew Kinloch).

More about the position

The postdoctoral fellow will principally be expected to extend the transhistorical dimension of the project, by pursuing research related to the narrative hierarchies of a non-Byzantine medieval historical tradition. Researchers are expected to share their chronological focus with the project (c. 1200 – c. 1460), but their field of specialisation within medieval history/literature is entirely open.

The postdoctoral fellow’s primary responsibility will be to research and write at least two journal articles. Prospective candidates are asked to clearly articulate the topics on which they intend to work in their project description. Candidates will not be expected to apply a rigid ‘project methodology’, but are encouraged to elaborate how their proposed research speaks to the research questions and transhistorical agenda of the project.
