PhD Research Scholar, Professional and Intercultural Communication, Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen, Norway. Deadline: 15 January 2023.
The Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) is pleased to announce a vacancy as PhD Research Scholar at the Department of Professional and Intercultural Communication within the field of Corpus-Assisted Discourse Studies (CADS). The PhD programme and the specialisation offered by the Department of Professional and Intercultural Communication aims to give dedicated students solid training in performing high quality research. The training is based on close cooperation with other national and international institutions offering similar programmes. The students must undertake relevant course work equivalent to 45 ECTS. Given the international focus of the department, the students are strongly encouraged to carry out some of their coursework abroad.
The research proposal should be related to Corpus-Assisted Discourse Studies (CADS), with a topic relevant to the research priorities of the department. Research proposals should include a sustainability perspective. Qualifying education should normally be a master’s degree in language/linguistics/communication studies. Emphasis will be placed on the quality of the research proposal. Some formal education in economics, business administration or other social sciences is an advantage.
The PhD programme at NHH is a four-year fully-funded programme, which combines an intensive course component with research and relevant work experience, preparing the school’s graduates for scholarly positions at recognised international institutions and positions in knowledge-intensive institutions and firms outside of academia. Former PhD graduates have been hired by renowned institutions such as HEC Paris, NOVA SBE, Tilburg University, Hanken School of Economics, Norwegian universities and business schools, as well as in the government, banking, finance and consulting industries.
