OFFER DESCRIPTION

UiT The Arctic University of Norway has established «The Arctic MSCA-IF program» (uit.no/afu/arcticmsca) to recruit excellent young researchers planning to apply for a Marie Skƚodowska-Curie individual fellowship (MSCA-IF) to pursue a career in research. We invite applications from promising young researchers within the field of sociology and arctic tourism. The selected candidate will write a proposal for a 24-month MSCA-IF at UiT together with Prof. Young-Sook Lee. This is an opportunity to accelerate your research career while living in the northern city of Alta, uniquely located at the top of the world surrounded by some of Europe’s last pristine wild nature.

This call is one of 28 from pre-selected supervisors at UiT The Arctic University of Norway through the “Arctic MSCA-IF program” (uit.no/afu/arcticmsca/supervisors). Successful postdoc candidates will be invited to Tromsø (travel and accommodation expenses covered) for a three-day MSCA-IF symposium May 26-28th, 2020. At this event, the candidates will present their past research achievements, discuss future plans with their potential supervisor and learn how to write a successful MSCA-IF application. The selected candidates will jointly with the supervisor write the MSCA-IF application with deadline September 9th 2020.

In this call we search for talented, young researchers within the field of sociology and Arctic tourism as presented by Prof. Young-Sook Lee:

My research field includes Arctic tourism with a focused attention to the meaning of nature derived and constructed from cultural values (e.g., Confucian, Zen Buddhist values informing the meaning of nature). With a conceptually clear understanding on different meanings of nature between the West and the East, I try to contribute towards a sustainable tourism in the Arctic, which is fast changing both environmentally and culturally.  

More info here.

Please send your CV (max 3 pages) and describe a research project that will strengthen and complement the presented research (max 2 pages) to young-sook.lee@uit.no by Feb 7th 2020. Mark your Application "Arctic MSCA".
