At the Department of Archaeology, History, Cultural Studies and Religion there are up to five PhD fellowships available from 1 January 2020.
Applications may be in any of the department’s subject areas:
- Cultural Studies (Ethnology/Folklore)
The project proposal should fall within one of the four subject areas and will be considered with reference to existing research milieus and available competence within the department. The candidate's main supervisor will normally come from the permanent academic staff of the department. The proposed supervisor must have confirmed his or her willingness to supervise the project, and the name of the supervisor must be stated in the application.
Qualifications and personal qualities:
Applicants must meet the formal requirements for admission to the PhD programme at the University of Bergen. The University requires the equivalent of a master’s degree (i.e. 3 years bachelor and 2 years master). That entails that the applicant must have an education with a scope of 300 ECTS credits, of which the Master's programme comprises 120 ECTS credits and includes a master’s thesis of between 30 and 60 ECTS credits. Applicants must have completed their master’s degree at the time of application.
In assessing the applications, both the academic quality of the project and the applicant’s qualification will be considered.
In cases where ranked applicants have approximately equivalent qualifications, strategic considerations, motivation and the applicant’s personal eligibility will be taken into account.
About the university PhD positions:
The fellowships are awarded for a period of four years, provided progress is satisfactory. Of these, three years is set aside for the research project and PhD education, while the last is allocated to teaching and other obligations done for the department. An agreement concerning the work load must be made with the department at the time of employment.
The employment period may be reduced for candidates who have previously been employed in a recruitment position at other institutions. Applicants who have already held a PhD position at the University of Bergen are not eligible for employment.
The successful applicants will be expected to relocate to the University of Bergen and conform to the regulations that apply to the positions.
