Vacancy: Two Researcher positions in the project “The State as a Corporate Actor: Structural Choices, Historical Legacies, and Organizational Legitimation”News
There is a vacancy for two temporary positions as a Researcher at University of Bergen and the Department of Government. Both positions are for two years (24 months) each, and we are looking for ambitious candidates with strong qualifications in research methodologies and a keen interest in studying the corporatization of the state from a comparative perspective.
The researcher positions are part of the project “The State as a Corporate Actor: Structural Choices, Historical Legacies, and Organizational Legitimation”. This project builds upon the premise that governments create corporate entities to engage in different sectors and services, ranging from public infrastructure such as energy or telecommunications to welfare services. Our project compares these patterns of corporatization in Norway and Sweden from 1950 until today.
The Swedish part of the project is partly located to the Ratio Institute. The two current vacancies are located to Norway and the Norwegian part of the project.
Qualifications and personal qualities:
Applicants will be evaluated based on their academic qualifications; their research and fit with the project; their methods skills; interest in the project’s topic; the quality of their publications; and their personal and relational skills.
