Description:

A Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1352) is available at the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, University of Oslo. The position is associated with the research project “Communicating rights in police investigative interviews”.

MultiLing is a Center of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway. It aims to generate scientific knowledge on multilingualism across the lifespan, related to three themes: Individual multilingual competence, multilingual practices in communication and management of multilingualism in society (for more information, see http://www.hf.uio.no/multiling/).

MultiLing seeks to recruit a postdoctoral candidate with excellent research qualifications who will work with members of the research project “Communicating rights in police investigative interviews”. The project aims to establish how speakers of Norwegian as a second language understand the rights presented to them in Norwegian, how police investigators secure reasonable understanding of the rights and how they decide on whether a suspect requires the services of an interpreter.

The position is available for a period of 3 years. There is a 10 % component of the position which is devoted to teaching and administrative duties.
