Deadline: February 25
The Department of Information Studies, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, invites applications for two 3-year fully funded PhD scholarships.
The candidates are expected to begin on September 1, 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The PhD scholarships are open-area; we are looking for applications in all of the department’s areas of strength (read more about the department here: www.ischool.ku.dk ). We are especially interested in PhD project proposals that augment the department’s strong, international research profile in new ways and areas.
It is expected that the PhD scholars will take active part in the department’s research activities and it is a plus if the proposed research project is situated between multiple areas of research within the department’s research profile. As a minimum we expect that the proposed research project is clearly situated within the department’s research strengths and activities, and that it is clearly connected to the expertise or interest of individual faculty members or research groups in the department.
Applicants are expected to have a strong educational background. The successful candidates will be part of a dynamic department that spans several disciplines, and the candidates must thrive in such an interdisciplinary environment. It is expected that the successful candidates take part in the department’s daily life and activities, and contribute to the development of the overall research milieu at the department.
The applicant’s qualifications for the scholarship are evaluated by taking into account the applicant’s general educational and academic background such as the applicant’s grade average, thesis grade, language competencies, publications and other academic activities given by the curriculum vitae as well as the duration of study especially during the applicant’s MA programme.
In addition, the proposed PhD project and study plan will be evaluated by taking the following into consideration; originality, choice of theory and method, disciplinary relevance, and prospects for completion within the required timeframe of 36 months.
Furthermore, applicants are encouraged to reflect on how their project relates to the research activities and the academic profile at the department.
Applications must be submitted electronically no later than February 25, 2019 at 23.59 (11.59 pm) (CET).
