Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship
University of Oslo, Norway

Scholarship / Financial aid: 1 fellowship available

Date: full time

Deadline: October 31, 2014

Open to: applicants with a Doctoral Degree in linguistics

Announcement follows

One Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1352) is available at the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the University of Oslo (UiO), starting in February 2015.

MultiLing is a Center of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway and opened on June 1, 2013. It aims to generate scientific knowledge on individual and societal multilingualism across the lifespan that will address the opportunities and challenges multilingualism presents for the individual in the family, educational and other institutional settings, and society in general. MultiLing has a network of national and international collaborative partners working on multilingualism at various research institutions.

The research profile of MultiLing is reflected in three mutually dependent and interrelated themes:

Theme 1: Multilingual competence across the lifespan

Theme 2: Multilingual practices across the lifespan

Theme 3: Management of multilingualism across the lifespan: Language policy and ideologies

MultiLing seeks to recruit a postdoctoral candidate with excellent research qualifications who will work within the range of the Center’s research profile.

MultiLing’s research agenda addresses multilingualism across the lifespan. The postdoctoral fellowship is earmarked for studies of language in the aging multilingual population related to one or more of the three themes. Although the project may be firmly anchored within one theme, interdisciplinary projects that successfully draw on perspectives from more than one theme will be given priority. MultiLing seeks candidates with documented expertise in the field of language in the aging multilingual population. The proposed project may be linked to the ongoing project on aging at MultiLing (“Multilingual Dementia – Competence, Practices, Policies”); however, this is not a requirement. In the case of equally qualified applicants, an applicant proposing a project that addresses issues relevant for the multilingual situation in Norway will be given preference. Candidates with a minority language background relevant for the multilingual situation in Norway are encouraged to apply. Competence in Norwegian is not a requirement.

The successful candidate is expected to strengthen the relevant research areas addressed in the project description, to contribute to and participate in the various workshops, conferences and activities organized by MultiLing, and to be active members of the MultiLing team in Oslo.

The main purpose of post-doctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.

The position is available for a period of three years starting February 1, 2015. There is a 10 % duty component devoted teaching and administrative duties for MultiLing.


+A Doctoral Degree in linguistics or in a discipline related to MultiLing's work (the dissertation must be submitted before the application deadline)
+The candidate's work must be closely connected to the central topic
+Good English language skills, both spoken and written, are required
+Personal suitability and motivation for the position

Qualifications and Personal Skills

In the evaluation of the applications, emphasis will be placed on

+the candidate’s international experience and network
+the applicant’s academic and personal qualifications to carry out the project within the allotted time frame
+good cooperative skills, and the ability to successfully join in academic collaboration within and across disciplines
