Sort on published: 2016-03-10
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 40,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.5 billion.
Research by anthropologists and ethnologists currently working at the department is undertaken in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the circumpolar areas, and in Europe. Researchers at the department have produced noteworthy and innovative scholarship. If the department’s ethnologists tend to focus on aspects of Swedish society, past and present, anthropologists have focused on contemporary societies in a global perspective. This divide is not a given, however. In Uppsala there are ethnologists doing research on identity among youth in Ghana and anthropologists researching the consequences of wind park installations and the mining industry in Sweden.
The Department of Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology hereby declares 1 Phd position available beginning 1 September 2016. Click on the link below for more information and to submit your application:
Engaging Vulnerability is a decade-long interdisciplinary research program at Uppsala University financed with the support of the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).
Engaging Vulnerability builds on and extends recent work in philosophy, the humanities and the social sciences. The program’s goal is to re-focus our understanding of vulnerability as something more than a lamentable condition from which subjects should be defended, rescued or liberated. Instead, the program documents and theorizes vulnerability as a productive position, condition, or state that does something. Vulnerability makes demands: about accountability, responsibility, ethics, engagement.
Engaging Vulnerability hereby declares 2 Phd positions available beginning 1 September 2016.
