Résumé :

We are looking for talented candidates to develop their PhD project within our interdisciplinary European Studies Research Cluster (ESRC) and our “TRUST in European Governance” research group. We are particularly looking for PhD projects investigating trust in a European/EU or Scandinavian/Norwegian context in a historical and/or contemporary perspective. The proposals can e.g. address questions related to the role played by (mis-/dis)trust between elites in the EU and/or European governance, how trust is built (or destroyed) and can be mobilized as a resource for cooperation, or what shapes citizens’ trust in European governance.

Détails :

The Faculty of Humanities at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) invites applications for up to ten PhD-positions. The PhD positions include three years of fully funded research. An additional fourth year of teaching and other duties may be added depending on departmental needs. Applicants must have completed a Master in Humanities or Social Sciences (or equivalent education) with a strong academic record and have obtained a weighted average grade of B (or equivalent for applicants from abroad) or higher for their master. The positions are open to applicants from all academic research areas within the Faculty of Humanities. Proposals must be linked to one of the existing research groups at the Faculty of Humanities. Residency in Trondheim is a requirement for the duration of the position.

We are looking for talented candidates to develop their PhD project within our interdisciplinary European Studies Research Cluster (ESRC) and our “TRUST in European Governance” research group. The TRUST research group includes senior and junior scholars specializing in comparative European, diplomatic and international history and post-war European integration, elite relations, networks and interest representation, EFTA, EEA, Norway-EU relations, and political conflicts over European integration and globalization. We are particularly looking for PhD projects investigating trust in a European/EU or Scandinavian/Norwegian context in a historical and/or contemporary perspective. The proposals can e.g. address questions related to the role played by (mis-/dis)trust between elites in the EU and/or European governance, how trust is built (or destroyed) and can be mobilized as a resource for cooperation, or what shapes citizens’ trust in European governance.

We offer a vibrant, dynamic and collegial research and teaching environment in Norway’s largest university, situated between picture-perfect fjords and snow-capped mountains. The European Studies programme is the only interdisciplinary study programme in Norway offering both a Bachelor in European Studies and a two-year (international) Master in European Studies. Successful applicants may be expected to do limited teaching in the BA in European Studies and to contribute to research within the ESRG and the Trust research group.

Informal inquiries can be directed to Dr Carine Germond (carine.germond@ntnu.no), the Director of the European Studies Programme and co-director of the European Studies Research Cluster. Interested applicants should send their CV, transcripts and a project proposal of up to 1500 words in a single PDF file no later than 15 July 2018 to carine.germond@ntnu.no and lise.rye@ntnu.no. The project proposal should include the following information: 1) Title and research question(s), 2) State of the art and innovativeness of the project, 3) Theoretical/conceptual framework (if applicable), 4) Methodology and data/sources, 5) References. Letters of recommendation are not necessary at this stage.
