University of Oslo Doctoral Research fellowships in Music in the Nordic Regions
Two PhD Research Fellowships in ‘Music in the Nordic Regions’ are now available at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo (IMV).
The area of ‘Music in the Nordic Regions’ should be understood in its broadest sense, and straddles topics related to Nordic music and/or music in the Nordic across genres, countries, centuries, and methodologies. While seeking to capture and maximise on current international research developments within the area, the fellowships are also a reflection of the University of Oslo’s recent initiative to foreground research into the Nordic from a variety of perspectives (www.hf.uio.no/english/research/uio-nordic/index.html). The Department emphasises a critical approach to musicology and covers a wide range of research areas, including popular music studies, music history, music analysis, philosophy of music, cultural studies, music technology, music and identity, and cognitive musicology. In seeking to maintain and develop this diversity, the fellowships are not advertised as genre specific, nor are there any specific methodological requirements or constraints.Applications are invited from candidates interested in contributing to the rich, interdisciplinary field of Music in the Nordic Regions, and the successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the Department’s overall critical approach to music studies.
The appointees will be required to partake in the Faculty's research programme, with a view to submitting a PhD thesis that is commensurate with the University of Oslo regulations. The successful applicants will also be expected to join the existing research milieu and contribute to its development. Read more about the doctoral degree here.
The appointment lasts for a duration of three years.
The successful candidate is expected to affiliate with the existing research milieu or network and to contribute to the further development of this.
Candidates who are accepted must participate in the Faculty of Humanities’ researcher education programme (cf. regulations and supplementary provisions for the faculty’s researcher education) and must also engage in the designated research activities on a 100 percent basis. The designated aim of the project is to complete a doctoral dissertation to be defended at a public disputation for the Ph.D.-degree.
Educational certificates, master theses and the like are not to be submitted with the application, but applicants may be asked to submit such information or works later.
The University of Oslo has an agreement for all employees, aiming to secure rights to research results a.o.
The University of Oslo aims to achieve a balanced gender composition in the workforce and to recruit people with ethnic minority backgrounds.
