University or Organization: University of Oslo 
Department: Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing)
Job Location: Oslo, Norway 
Web Address: http://www.hf.uio.no/multiling/english/
Job Title: Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in language in the aging multilingual population
Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics; Neurolinguistics; Psycholinguistics; Sociolinguistics 


One Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship is available at the Center for
Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the University
of Oslo, starting in February 2015. MultiLing is a Center of Excellence funded
by the Research Council of Norway.

MultiLing seeks to recruit a postdoctoral candidate with excellent research
qualifications who will work within the range of the Center’s research
profile, which is reflected in three mutually dependent and interrelated

Theme 1: Multilingual competence across the lifespan

Theme 2: Multilingual practices across the lifespan

Theme 3: Management of multilingualism across the lifespan: Language policy
and ideologies  

MultiLing’s research agenda addresses multilingualism across the lifespan. The
postdoctoral fellowship is earmarked for studies of language in the aging
multilingual population related to one or more of the three themes. Although
the project may be firmly anchored within one theme, interdisciplinary
projects that successfully draw on perspectives from more than one theme will
be given priority.

MultiLing seeks candidates with documented expertise in the field of language
in the aging multilingual population. The proposed project may be linked to
the ongoing project on aging at MultiLing (“Multilingual Dementia –
Competence, Practices, Policies”); however, this is not a requirement. In the
case of equally qualified applicants, an applicant proposing a project that
addresses issues relevant for the multilingual situation in Norway will be
given preference. Candidates with a minority language background relevant for
the multilingual situation in Norway are encouraged to apply. Competence in
Norwegian is not a requirement.  

For more information, please see the job announcement below.
