[ecrea] PhD/Postdocstipends - Media convergence in the cultural industries - Denmark

Wed Dec 23 11:14:38 GMT 2009

* Please distribute widely *

PhD/Postdoc application deadline: January 22, 2010

Place: University of Copenhagen / University of Roskilde, Denmark

Subject area: Media convergence in the cultural industries

Do you want to specialize in media convergence and how it transforms
cultural products, as well how they are produced, distributed and
consumed? Do you have an idea for a project relating to convergence in
the cultural industries, relevant to developments in Scandinavia? If
you also have competence in this area, as well as the general skills
and ambitions required to do a PhD or a post-doc and contribute to the
growth of a research group and department, please send a research
proposal (400-500 words), a one-page CV, and a writing sample to
Associate Professor Fabian Holt at (fabianh /at/, Dept. of
Communication, Business and Information Technologies, University of
Roskilde, before January 22, 2010. There are two stipends, and they
will be included in a major grant proposal and ultimately depend on a
funding-decision in May 2010. The funding period for a PhD stipend is
three years and two years for the post-doc.

The research will be conducted as part of a major research project
titled Media Convergence in the Cultural Industries in Denmark. The
aim of this project is to examine how the cultural industries in
Denmark are implementing and adjusting to digital convergence. The
project identifies and theorizes new models of convergence within
broader systems of mediated communication. A key question is how
product categories are changing in the large-scale process of
convergence that creates similar developments within the cultural
industries, but is articulated differently in each industry.

Danish universities are equal opportunity employer institutions.
