The Ulster University Doctoral College invites applications for a Ph.D. position in Multilingual Government.
Admission to the programme:
Candidates are welcome from any of these areas of research, and they are invited to develop their personal approach to the topic. A variety of theoretical approaches to the issue are possible, depending on the background of the candidate, including comparative studies, grounded theory and formal modelling. Research methods can be both quantitative and qualitative. Considering the international scope of the project, access to scientific literature and policy documents in more than one country is central. Therefore, knowledge of languages other than English, in particular French, is an asset.
Essential: A minimum of a 2:1 first degree in a relevant discipline/subject from a UK institution (or overseas award deemed to be equivalent via UK NARIC); and desirable: A Masters’ degree in a relevant subject, or equivalent professional experience.
The goal of the project is to study the challenge of multilingualism in the public administration in a comparative perspective. This is still a largely uncharted area with few contributions published to date. Given the project topic, an interdisciplinary approach is needed. This is an interdisciplinary project at the interface between public policy studies, public administration, sociolinguistics and economics.
More information about the programme, the application procedure and required documents is available on this site.
Application deadline: 15 February 2020
