Seven Ph.D. positions relevant for “The Digital Society”
The 23 applications received at the end of last year have been evaluated and it has been decided to support 7 PhD positions relevant for “The Digital Society”. Decision letters have now been sent to all applicants together with the external project evaluations.
The decisions have been made in a strategic perspective, which includes our existing study programme portfolio, interdisciplinary potential, relevance to the planned Ph.D-program “The Digital Society”, appropriate experience of the academic community and delivered evaluation reports by the appointed committees. The Fig. 1 is showing the allocation of the PhD positions.
All seven project leaders that have received funding for a PhD position have also been asked to deliver additional clarifications regarding their projects. Public call for new PhD positions will be announced through a common job advertisement in order to emphasize the intention that these ph.d.-students will belong to an interdisciplinary community at ØUC.
