PhD Studentship in Theatre Agenda 2030 Graduate School

Lund University is delighted to offer a PhD position in sustainable development. This position is available for four years. The deadline for applying is March 31, 2019.

Malm Theatre Academy, located in the centre of Malm's creative Mllevngen district, is part of the Malm Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at Lund University. The Academy is a place of study or workplace for more than 100 people.

The education assignment is 60 full-year places in the form of freestanding courses and first, second and third cycle programmes in theatre. Malm Theatre Academy aspires to be a leading educational and research department in the field of theatre as well as a relevant and open platform in Malm. We offer particularlypromising and motivated students and researchers a clearly profiled and international environment that prepares them for a challenging and changing profession.

The artistic research highlights the combination of perspectives on artistic practice, artistic knowledge generation and artistic learning. The participation of doctoral students in the institution's broad activities is an essential part of the development of the institution's collective knowledge environment. In practice, this means that the doctoral student is to take part in the department's meetings and actively contribute to knowledge development.

Agenda 2030 is the framework for sustainable development that the world's nations have signed to end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities, solve the climate crisis, promote peace and equity and much more. In order to achieve the goals, research has several important roles: to identify challenges and conflicting objectives, contribute new solutions, generate dialogue and learning between different societal stakeholders and critically analyse the goals. Lund University aspires to be a part of the solution and has therefore started a graduate school focusing on societal challenges, sustainability issues and Agenda 2030. We now welcome to the graduate school applicants from various disciplinary backgrounds who want to take an active role in Agenda 2030 research. The graduate school offers a unique opportunity to gain interdisciplinary perspectives on global challenges and contribute to current research while deepening your subject knowledge.

The graduate school will have at least 12 doctoral students from all faculties. You will be associated with a specific research studies programme, and simultaneously take part in the university-wide interdisciplinary research studies courses, developed on the basis of the issues defined by the global goals. The courses provide great potential to develop new forms of collaboration and work for change across disciplinary boundaries. Besides the research studies courses, you will participate in several activities linked to the graduate school in order to take an active part in the global sustainability agenda and to advance the research front on issues concerning Agenda 2030, for example through seminars, conferences, study trips and collaboration with various societal stakeholders.
