As of 1 September 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter, a PhD fellowship in general Didaktik with a focus on quality in Nordic education and teaching, will become available at the Department for the Study of Culture (IKV), Faculty of Humanities, University of Southern Denmark in collaboration with Applied Research, Education and Social Sciences (AFiPS), the Business Academy and University College, Lillebælt.
We are looking for a research fellow who has completed a relevant master’s degree programme with good grades and can present a research project that contributes to the development of general Didaktik theory and/or methodology in relation to QUINT. Comparative data from at least two Nordic countries must be included in the project. The project must be related to studies of quality in education involving video methods and a focus on lower secondary and/or teacher education. It is therefore appropriate to involve one or more of the subjects mentioned (social sciences, language arts/L1, mathematics).

QUINT and the Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Helsinki, invites applications for the position of PhD fellowship related to education in the Connected Classroom Nordic (CCN) project.
The purpose of the Connected Classroom Nordic project is to explore quality in teaching by bringing together researchers, teachers and pupils in a collaborative, video-based longitudinal study with a focus on the digitalised classroom in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland. The study will concentrate on the school subjects L1 (native language), mathematics and social studies in years 7–9. The doctoral research project must be linked to this research area and based on a comparative approach to data from at least two Nordic countries. A special focus will be on cooperation between research environments relating to the digitalisation of teaching at Karlstad University and the University of Helsinki. The appointee is expected to cooperate with the other doctoral students at QUINT and to participate in Nordic network meetings, conferences and doctoral training courses.
