Post-doc Université de Stockholm (Suède)
Doctoral Student Position in Theatre Studies at the Department of Musicology and Performance Studies.

The Department of Musicology and Performance Studies announces the vacancy of one position on the doctoral research programme in Theatre Studies to be associated with the project “Performing Premodernity: Exploring Cultural Heritage through the Drottningholm Court Theatre”. This project meets the eighteenth century on its own terms through the extraordinarily well-preserved performing space of the Drottningholm Court Theatre, which provides unique possibilities for research and experimentation. An interdisciplinary group of international academic and artistic scholars will study the musical and theatrical ideals and conditions that prevailed in Sweden and/or the rest of Europe during the era. The research will embrace both the material and the immaterial dimensions of late eighteenth-century theatrical performance. On the cusp of academic and artistic research, the results will be applied to the performance of opera, particularly from the period c1760 to c1815. The project will make a substantial and timely contribution to an understanding of premodern theatre practices and their cultural relevance today. 

The basic eligibility requirements stipulates that the candidate have completed courses for at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 must be for second-cycle courses and study programmes, or possess a second-cycle degree, a corresponding degree from outside Sweden or the corresponding qualifications. Those who met the basic entry requirements before 1 July 2007, i.e. had completed a programme of higher education for at least 120 credits or the equivalent, will continue to do so until 30 July 2015.

The doctoral student will be associated with the Department of Musicology and Performance Studies at Stockholm University, but we also invite applicants with backgrounds in other fields, such as visual arts, rhetoric, aesthetics or the history of ideas. Preference will be given to projects that focus on historical research relating to theatrical performance, including opera and dance.

Admission and selection
The selection among the eligible applicants is based on the applicants' capacity to benefit from the training provided. The assessment criteria used are previous qualifications (education in general and scientific production), research plan, and interpersonal skills. Further details on selection critera can be found in the General study plan for Theatre Studies, se link to the department below.

The selection is made by the senior members of the research project. The decision on the admission will be made by departmental board. Please note that decisions regarding acceptance to doctoral studies can not be appealed.
