PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in science education research with a focus on translating embodied cognition perspectives to science teacher education
The recent years have seen a growing commitment to embodied cognition as a new paradigm for knowing and learning. The study of embodied cognition builds on the assumption that thinking may occur in action and not only in the head or the brain. This shift in perspective has profound implications for science education research and practice. The goal of the PhD project is to break exciting new ground in the emerging field of embodied science education by systematically translating embodied cognition perspectives to science teacher education and/or science teaching practices. This work will also contribute to furthering the education of teachers within the Master Degree Program in STEM-Teaching. The PhD candidate will develop practical resources and establish design principles for instruction that facilitate embodied engagement to support science learning. There will be considerable room to shape and adapt this PhD project to the academic background and interests of the PhD candidate. Possible areas of specialisation could be a focus on a particular STEM discipline, e.g., embodied cognition in physics education, or a focus on certain formats of instruction, such as technology-enhanced science education viewed from an embodied-cognition lens. For questions or more information on the project, contact Magdalena Kersting ([email protected]).

PhD position summary/title: PhD Scholarship in Biblical Studies and Ancient Judaism
The PhD is part of the research project “Divergent Views of Diaspora in Ancient Judaism” (2022-2026), funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark and its Sapere Aude programme. Applying newly developed theory from Diaspora Studies, the project investigates the earliest stage of the Jewish diaspora (597-331 BCE). A great variety of imaginative reflections in biblical texts and basic information in historical records suggests that there were a number of different attitudes to living abroad. A key goal of the project is to identity and map all textual depictions in the Hebrew Bible (Ezra-Nehemiah, prophetic texts, diaspora stories) along with archival sources from Egypt (the Elephantine Papyri) and Babylonia (e.g. the Al-Yahudu documents). Four sub-projects, one of which will be conducted by the PhD student, focus on distinct, yet interrelated topics: Generational consciousness abroad; the issue of return; interaction with host authorities; and religious identity and practices in new cultural contexts.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship within the project Postwar Memory Generations – contested memory, historical narratives and history education in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia
The PhD position is opened within the framework of the collective research project Postwar Memory Generations – contested memory, historical narratives and history education in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, which is funded by Velux Fonden (January 2023 – January 2026). The PhD-fellow will join a research team of four scholars working within the project Postwar Memory Generations and will be supervised by the project manager, Associate Professor Tea Sindbæk Andersen. The project Postwar Memory Generations investigates the role of history education and history schoolbooks in shaping cultural memory in war-torn regions. Cultural memories, understood as shared narratives and representations of a common past, are core elements of group identities and essential in the social fabric of modern societies. The role of history education in creating cultural memory is fundamental. History education and history textbooks are generally considered vital tools for states to ingrain a certain collective memory and to socialise future citizens. Yet, we know little about the actual impact of history education. This is especially relevant in post-conflict regions with a painful recent past, such as Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH). In such contexts, questions of what and how to remember are typically contested and contentious. The ways in which questions of memory are resolved have implications for relations between neighbouring countries, generations and groups in society. The project investigates how generations schooled in BiH and Serbia in the 2000s and 2010s remember the

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in phage-guided discovery of novel antibacterial targets
Antibiotics of today employ a limited set of targets, driving rapid resistance by spreading common antibiotic resistance genes. Discovery of novel, more diverse, yet specific targets is crucial to secure future sustainable solutions for combatting multi-resistant bacteria like ESBL (Extended-Spectrum-Beta-Lactamase E. coli). Phages (viruses of bacteria) offer a unique opportunity to discover new bacterial targets, due to their highly specific and evolutionary optimized interactions with bacteria. This project aims to use unique phages to discover novel and diverse targets of ESBL by identifying phage proteins responsible for hijacking the host and inhibiting bacterial growth. Elucidating the molecular interactions of inhibitory phage proteins with their bacterial targets will allow us to propose optimal interaction sites for novel antimicrobials. To accelerate discovery, we combine several new technologies and expect to radically replenish the pipeline of antimicrobials.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in (psycho)linguistics at the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics at the University of Copenhagen
This project addresses a challenge raised by the first study of agrammatism in a polysynthetic language, Greenlandic. In this study, we found slow speech rates and short utterances, as expected of agrammatic speech, but almost none of the grammatical problems that gave agrammatism its name. The challenge raised by the study can be formulated in two questions: 1. Can the findings in the pilot study be replicated on a larger set of data collected from a group of well-diagnosed subjects? 2. What makes Greenlandic grammar, and presumably polysynthetic grammar in general, (seemingly) immune to agrammatism? The project brings together linguists, aphasiologists and neuroscientists to answer these questions based on the first coherent functional-cognitive theory of what grammar is. The answer to the second question is a key to understanding the neurocognitive mechanisms behind grammar and agrammatism, and a key to aid Greenlanders with agrammatism.

About The University of Copenhagen, Denmark – Official Website
The University of Copenhagen is a public research university in Copenhagen, Denmark. Founded in 1479, the University of Copenhagen is the second-oldest university in Scandinavia, and ranks as one of the top universities in the Nordic countries and Europe.
Its establishment sanctioned by Pope Sixtus IV, the University of Copenhagen was founded by Christian I of Denmark as a Catholic teaching institution with a predominantly theological focus. In 1537, it was re-established by King Christian III as part of the Lutheran Reformation. Up until the 18th century, the university was primarily concerned with educating clergymen. Through various reforms in the 18th and 19th century, the University of Copenhagen was transformed into a modern, secular university, with science and the humanities replacing theology as the main subjects studied and taught.
The University of Copenhagen consists of six different faculties, with teaching taking place in its four distinct campuses, all situated in Copenhagen. The university operates 36 different departments and 122 separate research centres in Copenhagen, as well as a number of museums and botanical gardens in and outside the Danish capital. The University of Copenhagen also owns and operates multiple research stations around Denmark, with two additional ones located in Greenland. Additionally, The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the public hospitals of the Capital and Zealand Region of Denmark constitute the conglomerate Copenhagen University Hospital.
A number of prominent scientific theories and schools of thought are namesakes of the University of Copenhagen. The famous Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum mechanics was conceived at the Niels Bohr Institute, which is part of the university. The Department of Political Science birthed the Copenhagen School of Security Studies, which is also named after the university. Others include the Copenhagen School of Theology and the Copenhagen School of Linguistics.
