PhD studies - Faculty of Humanities - NTNU
The Faculty of Humanities offers several PhD programmes and participates in the Norwegian Fellowship Programme for Artistic Research.
A PhD is a three year postgraduate education for people aiming for a career in higher education, research or other sectors requiring a high-level of academic expertise. The fellowship programme in artistic research is at the same level as academic PhD programmes and confers competence equal to associate professor based on artistic qualifications.
The Faculty of Humanities also awards the degree of dr.philos.
The Faculty of Humanities has announced up to five PhD positions. The application deadline is September 15, 2020. Applicants must enclose a project description using the Faculty's template and a confirmation from the main supervisor. Applicants must also include which PhD-programme they are applying to.
Strategic considerations will also be a part of the evaluation process, we therefore recommend that applicants familiarize themselves with the Faculty's and NTNU's strategies. The applicant must account for how the project can be related to ongoing research and established research groups at the Faculty. Applicants to the Department of Language and Literature must directly tie their application to one of the Department's existing research groups. Information on the other departments' ongoing research and research groups can be found at the departments' web sites.
