Ph.D Fellowship within Fluid Dynamics

Job description

The University of Stavanger invites applicants for a Ph.D fellowship within Fluid Dynamics at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Energy and Petroleum Engineering. The postition is vacant from April 2020.

The position will involve measurement of several fluid dynamic properties using optical methods. These include high-speed imaging and interferometric techniques. The most important parameters are dynamical surface tension and viscosity of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids via surface waves. This will bring new techniques and insights to measure these fluid properties with optical based techniques. Other physical techniques will also be considered for parallel verification of performance.

This is a trainee position that will give promising researchers an opportunity for academic development leading to a doctoral degree.

The appointment is for three years with research duties exclusively.

Information about the project

Non-intrusive and also online methods for measuring liquid properties is a challenge. In general, measurements are done by sampling, so that e.g. surface tension and viscosity are measured separately using conventional specialized instruments. The goal is that application of laser diffraction on capillary waves combined with image flow analysis, Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Background Oriented Schlieren (BOS) techniques, can provide sufficiently accurate measurements in one experimental setup.

The same technique may hopefully also be used for investigation of flame and combustion dynamics in e.g. biogas-methane/propane mixtures. This will involve application of density gradients in and around the flame. From that, potentially also local temperature may be detected. We foresee that even more practical applications can be found. We already have ongoing projects on thermo-haline flows in oceans and fiords. The proposed optical methods can utilize the density gradients occurring in in waters involving salt-fresh and warm-cold temperature differences.

The intention of this project is to develop experimental techniques, but not the least also link it to optical and physics theory. The experimental techniques give high time and space resolution and are therefore excellent tools to identify pattern formation in complex systems with focus on fluid flows, instabilities and capillary waves.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Religion, Culture and Society

Job description

The University of Stavanger invites applications for a 2-year position as Postdoctoral Fellow in Religion, Culture, and Society at the Department of Cultural Studies and Languages. The position is vacant from August 1, 2020.

The position is part of the project «Back to Blood: Pursuing a Future from the Norse Past» (BTB), funded by the Research Council of Norway FRIPRO and led by Professor Anne Kalvig. The project includes team members from the University of Stavanger, the University of Oslo and Linköping University, Sweden. The project is based in the division of Religion, Culture, and Society and in The Greenhouse, a program area in environmental humanities at the University of Stavanger.

The objective of the position is to produce research for the externally funded project, strengthen research within the department, and to give a researcher/scholar holding a doctoral degree within the relevant academic field(s) the opportunity for further qualification toward top academic positions.

About the project

The project BTB as a whole seeks to map how and explain why current concerns with sustainability, identity and citizenship lead to increasing cultural and spiritual demand for Vikings and the Norse past, and the consequences of various cultural actors supplying that demand. 

Within the larger project, this postdoctoral fellow will focus, through fieldwork, on Viking related martial arts and explore how this relates to topics like embodiment, gender, dignity and belonging, spirituality, sacred space/place, landscape and nature, and its borders towards nationalist agendas. In the project proposal for BTB this task was presented like this (excerpt):

Combat as a fight for dignity and belonging.
A substantial part of the field of Viking reenactment and living history, as well as the popular interest in Nordic Heathenism, focuses on combat, martial arts and weaponry. In this study, we investigate how the martial arts within mediations of the Norse past relate to ideas of embodiment, gender, dignity and belonging, and to political nationalist agendas. The task maps the backgrounds of Norse fighting and combat enthusiasts and participants, and analyzes 1. How specific notions of body, gender, dignity and belonging are related to fighting and combat, 2. How and why the Norse fighting milieus and Viking re enactment and/or Norse Pagan groups are related, 3. Whether the combat milieus are characterized by inclusiveness and diversity, or represent more closed, streamlined groups, and 4. How combat is related to notions of (sacred) place, landscape and nature.

The postdoctoral fellow is expected to produce three peer-reviewed international journal articles. Candidates are encouraged to design projects building on prior experiences, language competencies, and interests. 

The research project will be carried out at the University of Stavanger. It is assumed that the appointee will work full time on the project and that she/he will participate in the academic community at the faculty and university.

Ph.D Fellowship in Archaeology

Job description

The University of Stavanger invites applicants for a Ph.D fellowship in archaeology at the Museum of Archaeology. The postition is vacant from July 1st 2020. 

This is a trainee position that will give promising researchers an opportunity for academic development leading to a doctoral degree.

The appointment is for three years with research duties exclusively, or four years with both research and 25% compulsory duties. This will be clarified in the recruitment process. 

Applicants are kindly requested to prepare a project proposal that addresses one of the following two themes: Iron age settlement archeology or the Medieval Town of Stavanger. Marte Pupe Støyva

Arkeologisk Museums bibliotek

More information on project proposal themes 

IRON AGE SETTLEMENT ARCHAEOLOGY 

The county of Rogaland has an extensive archaeological record from both the early and late Iron Age. This project will explore questions pertaining to the long term relationship between these two phases either by a stronger focus on selected periods or as continuity or discontinuity across periods, thus investigating settlement and society in a long time perspective. The project proposal should focus on methods for synthesising this material in order to investigate change and societal transformations. 

THE MEDIEVAL TOWN OF STAVANGER 

In 2025 the city of Stavanger will celebrate its 900 anniversary. On this occasion, new research that synthesises the archaeology of medieval Stavanger is sought. The project should join the archaeological record with historical sources and records on the standing monuments such as the cathedral and rural Medieval churches. While written sources and standing monuments mainly give information about the development of the bishopric, the archaeological record holds the potential to give an insight into trade, crafts and the lives of the commoners. Several excavations have been undertaken on Stavanger’s medieval layers, and these will form the empirical basis for the research. Currently, the Museum of Archaeology are restoring the cathedral, and research is being done on skeletal remains from the crypt. By combining field documentation with medieval monuments and road systems, the structure of the medieval town can be reconstructed. Research questions should aim at themes such as the development of the town, living and working conditions, crafts, trade and the relationship between the town and the surrounding rural areas. 

Project proposal

As an applicant, you must prepare a preliminary project proposal for a doctoral project within the subject area, which explains the problem, relevance, theoretical and methodological approach.
