Convocatoria: PhD Research Fellowship in Political Science – University of Oslo (Plazo: 15 de mayo de 2020)

Organismo: University of Oslo

The Department of Political Science wants to recruit an excellent graduate with an MA degree in Political Science or closely related fields such as Economics or Sociology. The successful applicant will work as a PhD Fellow on the ERC project ‘The Emergence, Life, and Demise of Autocratic Regimes’ (ELDAR). The appointment is for a 4-year period; 75% of the time is allocated to research, 12.5% to project administration (for ELDAR), and 12.5% to teaching.

ELDAR will investigate three aspects of autocratic politics: 1) the emergence of autocratic regimes; 2) policy-making (“life”) in autocracies in the areas of education, infrastructure and industrial policies, social policies and media regulation; and 3) autocratic regime breakdown. In doing so, ELDAR will address the preferences and capacities of vital actors in autocratic politics – the leader, regime support groups, and mobilized opposition groups. Team members will also study the specific, and diverse, institutions that underpin autocratic regimes.

A cover letter statement of motivation and research interests (max 1 page)
