in media, communication and urban studies
We are looking for a highly motivated PhD-candidate who considers it a challenge to conduct PhD research on urban media engagement (cf. project description below) as part of the Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens and the Erasmus Research Centre of for Media, Communication and Culture.
Research duties (80%)
Teaching duties (20%)
Employment starts September 1, 2017. The initial contract will be running for a term of 1.5 years, which - depending on performance – will be extended with a second term of 2.5 years.
The conditions of employment correspond with the “CAO Nederlandse Universiteiten” (CAO NU).
For the job of PhD Candidate (Promovendus) the salary starts at € 2.222,- gross per month on a 38 hour per week contract in the first year, which will increase annually up to a maximum of € 2.840,- gross per month on a 38 hour per week contract in the fourth year (Grade P).
The EUR has attractive employment conditions, which include a holiday allowance of 8.0%, an end-of-year bonus of 8.3% and 41 annual vacation days in case of a full workweek.
The PhD project asks if and how young people construct an urban identity from their creative media practices. We build on two strands of urban research that claim, respectively, that creativity is a strong driver of a shared urban culture and that urban identities are less divisive and more inclusive than national ones. Our further integration of media research about active audience behaviour leads to a multidisciplinary perspective that reveals the potential of urban identities to exceed traditional divisions among youth based on national and ethnic backgrounds.
We use a multi-method design to analyse how young people understand their experiences of urban life and construct their urban identity from the active reception and production of (interactive) media. We collaborate with the Rotterdam ‘maker space’ Bouwkeet and two creative agencies to create a living lab in which young people of diverse backgrounds consume, discuss and make media products

Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens
The Erasmus University has recently launched three so-called Erasmus Initiatives, through which academic excellence and multidisciplinary collaboration in research is stimulated. One of these is the Vital Cities and Citizens project which aims (1) to advance our understanding of the ways in which social and cultural transformations affect urban life - and (2) by doing so – to help cities thrive as places of inclusion, tolerance and cohesion, and better articulate the aspirations of their diverse citizens. The Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens is a collaboration between the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS), the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC), and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS).
