TweetThis! PhD scholarships in Sociology, University of Copenhagen - Denmark

The scholarships are part of the Graduate School for Integration, Production and Welfare.

PhD scholarships in Sociology
Applications are invited for two PhD scholarships at the Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen and The Danish National Centre for Social Research (SFI) for appointment in October 2009, or in accordance with further agreement.

The PhD programme provides PhD students with a strong research based degree which opens for a variety of careers. The programme includes the drafting of a PhD thesis, active participation in research networks, PhD courses, teaching and other forms of public research dissemination. The PhD programme can be undertaken as a three year full-time study within the framework of the 5+3 programme or as a four year full time study within the framework of the 4+4 programme.

The scholarships are part of a research initiative focusing on citizens' meetings with different parts of the welfare system in a time of structural, organisational and ideological changes. The aim of the research initiative is to study the development in different sectors of the Danish welfare state with a specific focus on the position, rights and duties of the citizens meeting "the system". The PhD projects should focus on one of the following themes, analysed in a sociological perspective:
  • vulnerable families and the lowest social welfare benefits;
  • welfare services and marginalised groups (alcohol and drug addicts, homeless persons, troubled youth, problem families etc.);
  • employment policy and people with mental health problems;
  • strategies of active labour market policy;
  • the health sector and the question of "free choice".

Research projects based on quantitative methods or a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods will be preferred. Applicants are invited to write a research proposal (max. 10 pages) within one of the mentioned fields, describing the aim and focus of the planned PhD project, a theoretical framework and the methods and data to be used.
