Research environment at Södertörn University
As a doctoral student in Sociology, you will join a research environment that offers multidisciplinary perspectives and an advanced curriculum. Doctoral students are affiliated with a Social Science research area called Politics, Economy and the Organisation of Society (PESO), encompassing the disciplines of Business Studies, Economics, Political Science, Social Work, and Sociology. In addition, they are affiliated with the Baltic and East European Graduate School (BEEGS), which is part of the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES) at Södertörn University.
The primary workplace for doctoral students is the Sociology Department at the School of Social Sciences, where they are schooled in independent scholarly research. Here, research is conducted within the following sub-fields of sociology: political sociology (social movements, civil society, etc.); social stratification (ethnicity, class, gender, etc.); sociological criminology (surveillance, violence, etc.); sociology of organisation; urban sociology; sociology of education; sociology of migration, sociology of health and illness; social welfare and the labour market. While the discipline has a global analytical orientation, many of our projects focus specifically on the Baltic Sea region, Eastern Europe, the Nordic countries, and the European Union. Moreover, the Sociology Department and doctoral students are strongly engaged in national and international sociology networks, as well as engaging in multidisciplinary cooperation through the Centre for the Study of Political Organisation (CPO) and Reinvent – the Centre for City Dynamics at Södertörn University.

Your doctoral research must in some way be geographically concerned with the Baltic Sea region and/or the post-communist part of Europe and Central Asia. Theses with a comparative approach must include at least one country in the above-mentioned regions but may also include other countries. A thesis cannot only concern Sweden and Swedish society.
This doctoral position in Sociology includes both admission to third-cycle education, i.e. doctoral studies, and employment on a doctoral studentship. The intended outcome is a doctoral thesis.
