A three-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, financed by the Research Council of Norway, is available at the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, University of Oslo, starting December 2020. The fellowship is part of one of MultiLing’s research projects, entitled Second-language communication in workplace settings – the case of Polish migrants in Norway (NorPol). The project investigates socio-cultural, interactional, and linguistic factors that enhance or inhibit communication in workplace interaction between Poles and Norwegians.
Applicants are expected to present an independent research project proposal and articulate how the proposed project fits into the NorPol project. We particularly welcome projects relating to the role of interactional factors affecting mutual understanding in L2 communication, and projects relating to the role of grammatical, lexical and stylistic aspects in L2 communication; however, other projects relating to second-language communication in workplace settings involving Polish speakers of Norwegian will also be considered. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to data collection; hence, experience with fieldwork and/or data collection in workplace settings is an advantage.
