(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Multilingualism

Research topic

The research topic for this PhD fellowship is multilingualism. The fellowship focuses on heritage language speakers in Norway (and beyond), i.e., individuals speaking a minoritized language and the societal majority language (Norwegian) who also learn English (and further languages) in an educational setting.

Heritage language multilinguals are an understudied subgroup of multilinguals. To date, the continued development of the heritage language in children and adults is under-investigated, especially in combination with the development of the same individual’s second and third languages. Heritage speakers find themselves in a context where another language, the societal majority language, differs from their heritage/first/family language yet is the language in which they are educated and often become increasingly dominant over time. Whereas many studies focus exclusively on the heritage language, this PhD project helps to fill an important gap by examining all languages involved, i.e., the development of a heritage language in combination with Norwegian, English, and possibly additional languages. The specific language combinations will be determined by the PhD fellow, and should be discussed in the project proposal.

Deadline : 17th October 2023

(08) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Ph.d in Pscyhology -neuromodelling risk and resilience

The PhD Fellow will be affiliated with the MRmodel project. We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with an interest in neuromodelling to investigate how early brain development relates to cognitive development – and how this development can be biased towards risk or resilience. 

Conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems (e.g., 1.5 Tesla and above) operate with high-strength magnetic fields, which are expensive and require strict, access-controlled environments and maintenance, as well as highly trained personnel. As a consequence, access to high-field MRI scanners is highly limited in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). To address this, a new generation of portable low-field MRI scanners have emerged, allowing for safe and mobile scanning at a much lower cost point, allowing for much broader usage – including rural LMIC settings. This project is making use of data actively acquired across a multitude of high income- and LMIC cohorts around the world, combining novel ultra-low field and conventional high-field MRI as well as a range neurocognitive and environmental assessments.

Deadline : 15th October 2023
