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 fields of Women’s Studies, Gender Research, Feminist Research, Critical Gerontology, Sociology, Political Science. The selected candidate will write a proposal for a 24-month MSCA-IF at UiT together with Prof. Ann Therese Lotherington. This is an opportunity to accelerate your research career while living in the urban research city of Tromsø, 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 gender research as presented by Prof. Ann Therese Lotherington:

In my work, I explore ways we can live together despite differences in age, gender, ability, nationality, ethnicity, and / or other differentiating mechanisms. Questions about how we can promote interaction and integration in society without standardizing ways of living are central. These are issues that are particularly urgent for individuals and groups of people who do not have or will not be able to live up to a given standard. 

In my current research, I focus on people who have developed brain failure in adulthood, often in the form of a dementia disease, and ask how everyday life can be organized to ensure that their potential contributions to social development are actualized and their citizenship maintained. I do this by investigating inter-action and intra-action through creative processes and artistic activity. The methodological approach is qualitative art-based research, while I theoretically apply sociological perspectives such as Science and Technology Studies (STS), material feminist theory and citizenship theory.

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