1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Political Science

Summary of PhD Program:

The main objective of ACCELZ is to enhance our understanding of how states can design public organizations, practices, and policies, to accelerate climate action towards net-zero emissions. Drawing on a mix of political science methods, in combination with quantitative analysis of emission trends, ACCELZ will specify the relative importance of the state in acceleration processes. ACCELZ aim to capture and explain cross-country differences in how climate governance is organized within the state apparatus. The larger project is transdisciplinary, but the PhD project is in political science. ACCELZ combines quantitative and qualitative methods.

2. Fully Funded PhD Position in Social anthropology

Summary of PhD Program:

We invite applicants to develop PhD projects on the anthropology of human security in Africa in a broad sense. In particular, we encourage projects that innovatively connect health challenges (e.g., epidemics of non-communicable diseases such as cancer, diabetes, malnutrition, mental health and child development issues; emerging viral diseases in humans and animals; or re-emerging infectious diseases like malaria and sleeping sickness), and changing natural environments (shaped by e.g. toxic pollution of air, water, soil or food; urbanization, industry, mining and farming; or changing vegetation and biodiversity, rainfall, and temperatures). Examples for such human-made environment-disease constellations could be as diverse as: insecticides in agriculture or disease control; extractive industries or air pollution, antibiotic resistance or the spread of disease vectors.

4. Fully Funded PhD Position in Living and Learning in the Digital Age

Summary of PhD Program:

For this position, applicants must prepare an independent project proposal within the LIDA groups target area focusing on dialogic learning and teaching. Dialogic learning is key in the development of oracy skills, social skills and competencies children and young people need for work and participation in society. Dialogic teaching is central to support different students’ learning of basic skills as well as disciplinary learning in ways that are sensitive to the entanglements of cognitive, social, and emotional development. Research in this area is important if the school and other formal learning settings are to compensate for the diversity and structural inequalities among children and young people.

5. Fully Funded PhD Position in Systematic Mycology

Summary of PhD Program:

This PhD opportunity allows you to engage in a self-developed and innovative systematics research project on fungi, or plants in combination with fungi. The successful candidate for this position will work in close collaboration with staff members of the ISOP research group, primarily with Mika Bendiksby and Charlotte Bjorå. In our research, we focus on the discovery, understanding, protection, and utility of fungal and plant diversity. We often use a phylogenetic approach on genomic data to study a range of biological aspects in fungi and plants, and fungarium- and herbarium specimens are important data sources and depositories in our research.

An ideal project will effectively utilize NHMs fungal and/or plant collections, include fieldwork for collecting new materials, and align with our research profiles and ongoing activities. The ISOP group has a strong record for field-based research in the Arctic, Nordic countries, east- and southern Africa, and Indonesia. It is desirable that the proposed PhD project aligns well also with at least one of the research themes at our museum-wide research hub STADIS. The hub focuses on stability and discontinuity within and between different biological system levels, such as genomes, phenotypes, species, communities, and ecosystems.

7. Fully Funded PhD Position in European Studies

Summary of PhD Program:

As a PhD research fellow, you will be expected to develop and implement your own PhD project on a theme related to the legal-political aspects of domestic implementation of EU law, with a specific focus on EEA law and Norwegian law. The NAV scandal demonstrated that legal and political factors may interact in influencing how EEA law is interpreted and applied. Extant theories of judicial and administrative decision-making may be used to analyse how political incentives influence how law is interpreted and applied by courts and administrative agencies. Possible research questions include (but are not restricted to): How do Norwegian courts and administrative agencies balance the authority of EU/EEA law and Norwegian law in cases of possible tension between the two?

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in Nanotechnologies 

Summary of PhD Program:

This study will generate knowledge on the effects of direct cardiac supplementation of a new medication, the cardiac hormone proANP31-67. While the systemic effects of this protein have been previously reported, we will investigate, for the first time, the direct actions on the heart of this hormone in post-MI. The use of nanoparticles will generate new knowledge, as these carriers have not been tested in models of cardiac diseases yet. The use of combined FTIR and Raman for monitoring the therapeutic effects of our investigational drug and new delivery technology is also new in the cardiovascular field. The project will also require the use of advanced cellular imaging techniques (confocal microscopy) and experiments focused on cellular and molecular biology. The project has highly qualified national and international collaborators. The potential candidate must be open to short-term periods abroad to complete certain aspects of the project at the location of our international collaborators.

Fully Funded PhD Position in social anthropology

Summary of PhD Program:

Amber is a fossil resin secreted by plants between 300 and 16 million years ago, mostly during phases of climate breakdown and ecological crises. Today, geologists and palaeontologists believe that the study of amber specimens can help us answering key questions about the planet’s climatic history, and understanding how and why species adapted, or failed to adapt, during previous phases of mass extinction. Amber is also a well-known and sought-after organic gemstone, fuelling violent mining economies from Myanmar to Russia, Ukraine, and Mexico, and constitutes a global market increasingly driven by Chinese demand. Amber thus offers a privileged entry point to interrogate the current moment characterised by growing extractivism, trade, environmental crises, and conflict. And it is a compelling lens through which we can address some of the key empirical and theoretical challenges posed by the Anthropocene.

11. Fully Funded PhD Position in Multilingualism – “SPEAKERS”

Summary of PhD Program:

Through a comparative analysis of Sápmi and three additional cases, the SPEAKERS project investigates why and how some learners transition from learners to speakers of Indigenous or minoritized languages. In many Indigenous contexts schools are key arenas for language revitalisation; the goal of SPEAKERS is to gain a deeper understanding of what happens after students leave school. The project aims to identify and investigate key life moments or mudes that facilitate or trigger the transition from learner to speaker, compare the impact and interaction of key social environmental factors on speaker resilience, and investigate inherent tensions in language reclamation processes and how learners and speakers attempt to solve such tensions.
