Development Studies at OsloMet invites candidates to apply for a 3-year PhD Fellowship, starting September 1st 2018.

Area of research and work description
The position is part of a new research network on Gender, Education, Media and Development in Southern Africa at Oslo Met. The network’s research goal is to collect data, analyze and publish on education-related practices as parts of wider socio-economic development processes and cultural dynamics in Southern Africa. The perspective can be described as a non-education-centric education approach.

Two analytical dimensions are considered central: First, gender is a crucial factor for understanding how young people relate to the world, hence also education-linked life strategies. Secondly, as new media have become a ubiquitous part of sociality all over the world it is necessary to study how media practices are tied to education-oriented practices.

We look for a candidate who has interest and competence in some or all of these thematic areas. The academic approach must be from a social science perspective. The research must primarily be based on qualitative methods although combining such methods with quantitative methodology will be welcomed. The thematic framework is rather wide and we do not expect candidates to cover them all. Preferred disciplinary backgrounds are social anthropology, sociology, media studies, educational science and other social sciences which have relevance for the research theme.

We welcome applicants who have a glowing research interest somewhere within the research network’s framework,  are dedicated to conducting fieldwork somewhere in Southern Africa and who can work independently with her/ his PhD thesis.

Appointment as a PhD student requires admission to the PhD program in Educational Sciences for Teacher Education at the Faculty of Education and International Studies. More information can be found here. Applicants for the PhD position will receive information about the application procedures for admission to this PhD program after they have applied.

The PhD candidate’s workplace will be at Oslo Met’s main campus in Oslo. The candidate should also be open to spending a semester in a non-Norwegian university as part of the PhD work.
