Two Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships

Call for applications

Two Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships (SKO 1352) are available at the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages, University of Oslo.

The Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages has 59 tenured academic staff and 40 temporary academic staff. Its ongoing research covers a wide range of topics under the broad rubrics of religious studies; cultural history; and culture, politics, and history of Asia and the Middle East and North Africa.

Candidates will apply with an individual research project. This project needs to be thematically relevant to the on-going research of the department. For information about ongoing research, please visit the department’s project website and those of individual faculty members. The Department is a uniquely interdisciplinary research environment, and projects that transcend disciplinary boundaries are particularly encouraged.

The successful candidates are expected to join the existing research milieu and contribute to its development. In addition to their own research, they will take part in ongoing research related activities at the department and the section. They will also contribute to teaching activities. The successful candidates and the department will formulate a career plan as part of the position.

The candidates will start on 14 August 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointment is for a duration of three years. Ninety percent of the position is set aside for research, and 10 percent for teaching.
