PhD scholarship: Maintaining Slavery in the Lesser Antilles c. 1650 - 1850

  The Saxo Institute at the University of Copenhagen is pleased to announce a call for applications for a 3-year fully funded PhD scholarship in the inter-island history of slavery in the Lesser Antilles c. 1650 – 1850. The position is available from October 1, 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is part of the research project In the Same Sea: The Lesser Antilles as a Common World of Slavery and Freedom, funded by the European Research Council. In the Same Sea investigates the shared history of the Lesser Antilles from the 1650s to the 1850s. The research team explores how the islands of the Lesser Antilles were shaped by inter-island connections that transformed separate islands in different empires into a common world of slavery and freedom. The successful candidate will carry out independent research on how slavery was maintained across imperial borders in the Lesser Antilles. The PhD research project begins from the assumption that slavery in the Lesser Antille

PhD scholarship in Social Data Science, University of Copenhagen (UCPH)

  Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship at the Copenhagen Centre for Social Data Science ( SODAS ) at the University of Copenhagen as part of the ERC-funded project “ DISTRACT: The Political Economy of Attention in Digitized Denmark .” Employment is scheduled to begin November 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. DISTRACT is an interdisciplinary research project financed by an ERC Advanced Grant. Bringing together an interdisciplinary team and drawing on SODAS’ broad social data science expertise, DISTRACT explores the political economy of distraction in digitized Denmark in order to break new empirical, methodological and theoretical ground in the social scientific study of attention. Combining new data science techniques, including text mining, machine learning, and natural language processing, with classic social science methods such as randomized experiments, social network analysis and ethnographic fieldwork, DISTRACT thus collects, integrates and analyses qualitat
