Two doctoral students in Media and Communication Studies

Örebro University seeking doctoral student for the doctoral programme in Media and Communication Studies at the School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences commencing September 2019.

Department of Media and Communication Studies at Örebro University is a thriving research environment of recognised international standing. The announced positions should be linked to at least one of the department’s three research groups.

The group of Discourse and Communication Studies specialises in such areas as critical discourse studies, analysis of broadcast talk and media language. Studies focus on communication in contemporary public debates and analyse traditional as well as web-based/social media. The group of Film and Visual Communication Studies works on various aspects of visual and multimodal communication, film history and on critical approaches to film and visual culture. The research in the third group, Strategic communication, conducts research on business, public sector and the wider public sphere including politics. Studies follow a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives on concepts such as branding, organizational communication, political communication, public relations, and on risk-, crisis- and environmental communication.

Doctoral studentships

The place on the programme is linked to a full-time doctoral studentship for the duration of the study programme. Duties such as teaching, administration and research other than the student’s own thesis project may be included, however with no more than 20 per cent of a full-time post. If this is the case, the working hours spent on such duties, as well as the corresponding funding, will be added on to the four-year study period.

For admission to doctoral studies, applicants are required to meet general and specific entry requirements. In addition, they shall be considered in other respects to have the ability required to benefit from the programme.
