Description:

The Department of Professional and Intercultural communication is pleased to announce the availability of a PhD Research Scholarship within the field of corporate discourse.

The PhD programme offered by the Department of Professional and Intercultural Communication aims to give dedicated students solid training in performing high quality research. The training is based on close cooperation with other national and international institutions offering similar programmes. The students must undertake relevant coursework equivalent to 45 ECTS. Additional thematic courses are organized by LingPhil, the Norwegian graduate researcher school in linguistics and philology. Given the international focus of the Department, the students are strongly encouraged to carry out some of their coursework abroad.

Qualifying education should normally be a master’s degree in English, French, Spanish, or German language (all taught at NHH); or linguistics/language & communication, combined with a relevant educational background in one of the above languages. Emphasis will be placed on the relevance of the master’s thesis to the research field of discourse analysis. Candidates will be evaluated on the quality and topical relevance of their research proposal. Some formal education in economics, business administration or other social sciences is an advantage, and a good command of a Scandinavian language is desirable. The PhD dissertation must be written in English and should be based primarily on English language data/material.
