Job Title: Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Multilingualism

Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Psycholinguistics; Sociolinguistics; Multilingualism; Bilingualism


1–2 two-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowships, financed by the Research Council of Norway, 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 April 2021.

MultiLing is a Center of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway and opened in June 2013. MultiLing aims to generate scientific knowledge on multilingualism across the lifespan, related to three themes: Theme 1 Multilingual competence, Theme 2 Multilingual practices, and Theme 3 Multilingualism, ideologies and language policies (for more information, see

MultiLing seeks to recruit postdoctoral candidates with excellent research qualifications who will work with MultiLing researchers collaborating on research as addressed in MultiLing’s Research Strategy Plan (MRSP). Projects aligned with MultiLing’s vision will be prioritized: “to contribute to how society can deal with the current challenges of multilingualism through increased scientific knowledge, and thus promote agency for individuals in society, and a better quality of life, no matter what linguistic and social background.”

The announced positions are devoted to studies of multilingualism within one of the following areas:
- Minoritized languages and education
- Multilingualism, emotions and/or well-being

Education is used here in its broader sense as not only formal but also informal language learning and development. Furthermore, projects that draw on one or more of the following are encouraged: Globalization and North-South perspectives, democracy and citizenship, embodiment/emotions, computer-mediated communication, multilingualism in public spaces and/or linguistic landscapes.

Applicants are expected to present an independent research project proposal, and must articulate how the proposed project fits in MultiLing’s Research Strategy Plan.
