University of Southern Denmark Ph D. Scholarship in Social Interaction 2020:


A Ph.D. scholarship is available at the Department of Language and Communication at the University of Southern Denmark, starting on December 1st, 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter:

In connection to the larger research project “Bodily and Robotic Interaction: A Transdisciplinary Concept of Rehabilitation Training (BARI)” that aims to develop a proof of concept for the use of robotic-assisted training in adolescents and adults with cerebral palsy (CP), we now have one open PhD position at the Department of Language and Communication, University of Southern Denmark. The project is anchored in SDU-Trinity, a trans-disciplinary research environment dedicated to research in motion technology for humans (

SDU-Trinity offers 3 interrelated Ph.D. positions as part of the project, which represent 3 distinct scientific areas: training physiology (health science), social interaction (humanities) and robotics (engineering). The Ph.D. project in Social Interaction aims at contributing to the development of a proof of concept by describing how the training activity is the product of the practices and coordinated multimodal actions of all the participants involved. The methodological approach of the study will preferably fall within the framework of multimodal ethnomethodological conversation analysis.

Applicants are expected to have an MA/MSc in areas such as Anthropology, Audiologopedics, Communication, Linguistics, Sociology.
