• Description:

    We are now searching for a PhD student in the GROWL program. The holder of the position will work in a subproject that critically examines how the EU green transition is represented in Swedish climate policy debate and translated into policy practice by Swedish authorities, business organizations and trade unions. We approach the green transition as a discursive domain consisting of different actors with multiple, and often competing, aims, aspirations and agendas. 

    The project includes both document analysis and interview studies. The PhD project will be conducted in a Swedish context, which means that data collection will be undertaken in Swedish. Article writing and publication in scientific journals will be conducted in English. In addition, the candidate will participate in international conferences where English is the standard language.

    As a PhD student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.
