One doctoral studentship in Sociology (fully funded)
at Södertörn University, Stockholm, Sweden
The primary workplace for doctoral students is the Sociology Department at the School of Social Sciences. Here, research is conducted within the following sub-fields of sociology: political sociology (social movements, civil society, etc.); social stratification (ethnicity, class, gender, etc.); sociological criminology (surveillance, violence, etc.); sociology of organisation; urban sociology; sociology of education; sociology of migration, sociology of health and illness; social welfare and the labour market. While the discipline has a global analytical orientation, many of our projects focus specifically on the Baltic Sea region, Eastern Europe, the Nordic countries, and the European Union. Moreover, the Sociology Department and doctoral students are greatly involved in national and international sociology networks, as well as engaging in multidisciplinary cooperation through the Centre for the Study of Political Organisation and Reinvent – the Centre for City Dynamics at Södertörn University.
Your doctoral research must have a geographical link to the Baltic Sea region and/or the post-communist part of Europe. Theses with a comparative approach must include at least one country in the above-mentioned regions, but may include other countries. A thesis may not solely relate to Sweden and Swedish society.
This doctoral position in Sociology includes admission to third-cycle education, i.e. doctoral studies, and employment on a doctoral studentship. The intended outcome is a doctoral thesis. As a doctoral student, you will take doctoral courses, participate in research seminars, and participate in national and international research activities. Your main task, however, is to conduct research and write a doctoral thesis. Supervisors will be assigned to guide you. The programme covers 240 credits, which is the equivalent of four years of full-time study. During this period, the position is fully funded. The salary is subject to an annual increase in accordance with university regulations. The position may entail other departmental duties within education, research and/or administration, but these may be equivalent to no more than 20% of full-time.
The application deadline is 14 February 2022.
