Ph.D. fellowships in Musicology are available at the Centre for Grieg Research.
The Centre for Grieg Research was established by the University of Bergen in collaboration with the Bergen Public Library (representing the Municipality of Bergen) and Edvard Grieg Museum Troldhaugen (representing the Art Museums of Bergen). The purpose of the Centre is to undertake research and contribute to the education of researchers focusing on Edvard Grieg’s works, as well as the music and musical life of Western Norway. The Centre also collaborates with the national Music Heritage Project.
Applicants must meet the formal requirements for admission to the Ph.D. programme at the University of Bergen. The University requires a minimum 5-years degree (300 ects) including the master degree (two years). Applicants must have completed their master?s degree at the time of application.
The Fellowship?s main goal is to lead to a Ph.D. degree, which qualifies for independent research activities, and for other work that requires particular competence.
The fellowships are awarded for a period of four years, provided progress is satisfactory. The research and educational part of the fellowship is 75%, while the last 25% is dedicated to teaching and/or other obligations. An agreement concerning the actual work load must be made with the Centre at the time of employment.
The successful applicant will be expected to have main residence in Bergen, and conform to the regulations that apply to the position.
