PhD Calls

In light of the budgetary restrictions foreseen for the coming period, the Rector of UCPH has imposed a temporary hiring freeze on all employment categories, including PhD appointments financed through fiscal allocations.  

For this reason, no PhD scholarships belonging in this category (so-called “frie stipendier”) will be advertized until the hiring freeze has been lifted and the Faculty is able realistically to assess its financial situation and attendant possibilities or constraints.

Ph.D. Scholarship: The New Psychology of War

11 October 2016

The Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) is announcing a three-year, fully funded Ph.D. project on the new psychology of war emerging in the 21st century. The project is set to start 1 February 2017. The Ph.D. is part of a larger research grant from the Danish Research Council on The New Psychology of War: Trauma, Subjectivity, and the Militarization of Positive Psychology. We will study how Western militaries currently use positive psychology to make soldiers more resilient, and how this latest interaction between psychology and the military reshapes cultural and psychological ideas about war and its aftermath. 

Application deadline: November 1, 2016
Expected start date: 1 February 2017
