OPEN POSITIONS
Postdoc in European Research (1-2 positions)
Diary id: PAR 2018/14
Employment level: Time limited employment (temporary), two years
Location: University of Gothenburg, Sweden
Apply by: 2018-03-25
The Centre for European Research at the University of Gothenburg (CERGU) is a multidisciplinary
centre supported by the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Social Sciences and the School of Business,
Economics and Law. The position consists of a unique double affiliation with the multidisciplinary
centre combined with employment and office located at a relevant department within one of the
three faculties: the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Social Sciences and the School of Business,
Economics and Law.
CERGU was established in 1995, and the centre’s network-based structure allows our scholars to
combine disciplinary depth with multidisciplinary insights on European issues (see www.cergu.gu.se).
CERGU’s mission is to promote multidisciplinary research on Europe and serve as a knowledge hub
stimulating multidisciplinary and policy-relevant debate on European challenges. CERGU has a strong
emphasis on ‘talent development’ of young researchers. We offer a welcoming and stimulating
atmosphere and provide an opportunity for early career scholars to pursue their own multidisciplinary
research project in European research, in line with CERGU research themes, for two years.
Subject area
European Research
Subject area description
CERGU has four thematic areas of research:
Cultural Borders
Mobility & Migration in Europe
Institutions, Parties & Movements
External Relations, Security & Trade
These themes are described in more detail on the CERGU website. We encourage potential applicants
to describe in their application the extent to which their proposed project and merits may benefit
from, and contribute to, the CERGU environment and our thematic areas of research.
Job assignments
Postdoctoral researchers will be expected to engage in a multidisciplinary environment whose overall
ambition is to pursue high quality research with the potential to have a significant impact on European
research. We will expect the postdocs to contribute to the research environment while independently
conducting their own proposed research. In addition, the postdocs will be expected to organise a small
conference or workshop during their employment, and to present their research at international
conferences. The vast majority of the work should take place in Gothenburg in order to also actively
participate in CERGU activities, such as weekly breakfasts, regular working seminars, international
conferences, guest seminars and public events.
Normally the postdoc positions are combined with up to 20% teaching, however, this must first be
agreed upon with the relevant home department. Many of the researchers affiliated with CERGU also
carry out parts of their teaching within the educational programs of European Studies (Centre for
European Studies, CES, as well as within their home departments.
Eligibility
A doctoral degree is compulsory for a position as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of
Gothenburg. Since the postdoc position is designed to give new PhDs the opportunity to strengthen
and develop their scholarly proficiency, priority will be given to those whose doctoral degree was
granted within 3 years of the application closing date. Applicants must not have previously been
employed as a postdoc at the University of Gothenburg.
Assessment
In assessing candidates, particular attention will be given to scientific proficiency. Both the project
description (research plan) and previous research merits of relevance to the proposed project (CV) will
be considered. The proposed research project must have a clear European dimension in relation to
CERGU’s research themes, be of high scientific relevance, and be possible to complete within two
years. The research plan should also include information on dissemination strategies. The assessment
will consider how the proposed project may benefit from, and contribute to, the CERGU environment
and our thematic areas of research.
Employment
The position is 80%, for two years, placed at a department suitable to the project and academic
background, from 1st of September 2018, or as agreed upon. The positions are normally combined
with up to 20% teaching, but this must be agreed upon with the relevant home department.
