Vacancy: PhD position European identity formation UVA

The Amsterdam School for Regional, Transnational and European Studies (ARTES) currently has a vacant doctoral researcher position as part of the research Project EUDENTIFY, led by principal investigator Prof. Theresa Kuhn. ARTES is one of the five Research Schools within the Amsterdam Institute for Humanities Research.

What are you going to do?

The doctoral researcher will be part of the EUDENTIFY research projected directed by Prof. Theresa Kuhn. This 5-year research project is funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and seeks to analyse the relationship between European supranational institution building and collective identity formation. The doctoral researcher will conduct a PhD research project to analyse the impact of European institution building on people’s national and supranational identities. The researcher will focus on the role of citizen’s cross-border interactions and institutional socialization as mechanisms of identity change, and will combine advanced quantitative methods (difference-in-difference designs, experiments) with qualitative research designs (focus group interviews and in-depth interviews). While a concrete project plan exists, there is room for developing your own research ideas. The academic work is to result in a doctoral thesis that will be defended at the Faculty of Humanities with the goal of obtaining the degree of PhD.

The deadline for applying for this vacancy is 20 November 2022.
