Africa PhD Scholarships - Objectives of the PhD
It is the general objective of the announced PhD scholarships to strengthen the overall research efforts of MEDIeA in Kenya and Tanzania.
The PhD students are expected to provide community based research which uncovers the synergies and communication relations between everyday life, media use, citizen engagement in social and political processes.
Africa PhD Scholarships - Who can apply?
We invite applications from students with an MA in social sciences or humanities and with experience in qualitative empirical research, preferably in the field of qualitative reception studies, media ethnigraphy and/or participatory communication studies.
Applicants should be prepared to work extended periods in the ‘field’, in close and prolonged cooperation with the non-governmental and community-based organisations selected as case studies by the MEDIeA team of senior researchers.
Applicants must be able to communicate in the relevant vernacular language, besides English, as well as demonstrate the necessary ’social’ abilities to do research based on a participant observation approach.
Finally, it would be beneficial if applicants also have experience with survey-based, quantitative research designs or equivalent qualifications.
