One Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and one Doctoral Research Fellowship are available at the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, University of Oslo, starting November 2016, for three years. The fellowships are funded by the University of Oslo’s investment in developing world-leading research communities and are part of one of MultiLing’s new research projects, “Multilingualism and mediated communication”.

MultiLing is a Center of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway and opened on June 1, 2013. It aims to generate scientific knowledge on multilingualism across the lifespan, related to three themes: Individual multilingual competence, multilingual language practices, and management of multilingualism in society (for more information, see http://www.hf.uio.no/multiling/). The above-mentioned research project is part of MultiLing’s research theme “Multilingual Language Practices”.

Applicants are expected to present an independent research project proposal within one of the two following research areas:

- Media and linguistic repertoires in multilingual families
- Multilingualism in digital interaction

We seek strongly motivated, competent and internationally oriented candidates, with high-ranking academic qualifications in the relevant area of research.

For the Doctoral position, the candidate must have an MA degree or equivalent in Linguistics, Communication, Anthropology, or some other relevant discipline related to MultiLing’s work (note the requirement of a minimum 2-year MA or equivalent).
