About the position

The Department of Social Anthropology is looking for a qualified candidate to fill a 3-year Doctoral Fellowship in migrations and mobility research.  The position provides a promising research recruit the opportunity for professional development through completing a PhD degree.
This position is attached to the Temporalities of Mobility and Migration research group . The members of the group carry out ethnographic and anthropological research on mobility and migration in different parts of the world, and at different scales – from the phenomenology of micro-mobility in everyday life to large-scale historical patterns of population movements.


We cross-culturally explore forms of human mobility with a particular emphasis on life cycles, generational particularities, memory, frequencies and rhythm of movement, imaginations of the future, and other temporal dimensions that situates mobility in particular historical contexts. The advertised position seeks to contribute to the “Cosmopolitan Trondheim” project, focusing on developing an ethnography of multicultural co-existence in the city. In this occasion we are looking for a doctoral candidate to contribute with research on the gastronomic practices of Trondheim’s immigrant population and health.

You will report to the Head of Department of Social Anthropology at NTNU.
