Åbo Akademi Doctoral Training Network for Minority Research (MinRes) VERY SHORT NOTICE!

The Åbo Akademi Doctoral Training Network for Minority Research (MinRes) is a new network in in the Faculty of Arts, Psychology and Theology. It is based on cooperation between the disciplines psychology, theology (systematic theology and ethics), and religious studies at Åbo Akademi University.

The ambition of the doctoral network is to create a much needed cross-disciplinary network for PhD students to conduct research related specifically to understanding the current nature, conditions, and effects of devaluating attitudes and relations towards minorities. This can include themes such as the current polarization of values and populist anti-minority speech; institutional, cultural and public models of accepted identities and logics of surveillance; religious and/or ideological frameworks as motivational structures in relating to and understanding minorities; verbal or physical violence against minorities; effects of negative attitudes and violence on e.g. subjective well-being; means to prevent radicalization and decrease associated violence; and novel alternative public strategies that better foster and guarantee the protection of minorities. These themes are, however, preliminary and will be defined definitively in the initiations process of the network and through recruitment of doctoral students in order to establish a coherent and dynamic doctoral network.

In this network doctoral students will pursue their projects as a team and under the supervision of Prof. Peter Nynäs (religious studies), Prof. Mikael Lindfelt (theology) and Prof. Pekka Santtila (psychology.). The Åbo Akademi University Minority Research profile that is currently developed will provide an additional important resource for the network.

For additional information about the positions and work tasks applicants are encouraged to contact Prof. and network director Peter Nynäs, peter.nynas@abo.fi, Prof. Mikael Lindfelt, mikael.lindfelt@abo.fi, or Prof. Pekka Santtila, pekka.santtila@abo.fi.

Fast Track doctoral scholarships

Starting October 1st, 2016 the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne offers Fast Track doctoral scholarships over a period of three years.
The a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School serves the entire Faculty of Arts and Humanities and covers all qualification levels of academic training in the arts and humanities – from Master to postdoc. The Fast Track model allows students in their last semester of Master’s studies to immediately be accepted as doctoral students in the structured programme of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School. Candidates admitted to the structured doctoral programme are supervised by a team of three researchers and study a curriculum that involves, among other things, participation in regular meetings of one of the six interdisciplinary graduate classes.
The Fast Track model addresses excellent graduates who are already able to present a viable proposal for a doctoral dissertation project directly after the completion of their degree and who are therefore able to be immediately accepted into the structured doctoral programme of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School. The doctoral projects of the scholarship holders will be supervised by full professors at the University of Cologne. Applicants may contact potential supervisors in the course of application.
The Fast Track doctoral scholarship is a full scholarship at EUR 1.250 per month and is awarded for three years, starting October 1st, 2016. Please send your complete application documents by May 20, 2016 (application receipt).
