One or more doctoral studentships in Sinology (PAR 2021/1671)

A doctoral student is to spend their time on their doctoral studies in accordance with the general syllabus for the subject area in which they are admitted. The ultimate goal of the study programme is a Degree of Doctor. The doctoral student carries out research and is expected to contribute to the development of knowledge within the subject area. This includes developing their own ideas and communicating research results both orally and in writing. The doctoral student is required to develop the knowledge and skills needed to be able to conduct independent research in the subject area through the production of a scholarly thesis. The doctoral studentship also aims to develop the doctoral student’s ability to utilise their acquired research skills and knowledge in future research projects or other qualified professional work.

As a doctoral student, you are expected to be physically present at the workplace and interact actively with others in the doctoral education environment. This includes active participation in subject area and other research seminars at the Department. In addition to your third-cycle study programme, a maximum of 20 per cent department duties (e.g. teaching) is included in the position, which will extend the doctoral studentship proportionately. The working language of the Department is Swedish and, if required, the University can offer introductory courses in the Swedish language.

Eligibility criteria:
To be eligible for admission to doctoral studies, the applicant must meet the general entry requirements according to Sweden’s Higher Education Ordinance (Chapter 7 Section 39) and the specific entry requirements. A person meets the general entry requirements for third-cycle courses and study programmes if he or she:
- Has been awarded a second-cycle qualification,
- Has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded at second-cycle level, or
- Has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad.

For specific entry requirements for third-cycle studies in the subject area, see the general syllabus:

Please apply via the link below. How you satisfy both the general and specific entry requirements must be clearly stated in your application. The applicant must also have good knowledge of English and the languages relevant conducting the selected research project. The deadline for applications is 8 February, 2022.
