Become a researcher

Are you interested in becoming a researcher within the field of English studies?

The doctoral programme at the Department of English is divided into two sections, specialising in English Linguistics or in English-language Literature.

As a PhD student you will be contributing to the research from Stockholm University and to the research environment at the Department of English. The doctoral studies include writing an independently researched thesis. The purpose of the thesis is to contribute to the development of knowledge in your subject area.

More on our PhD programmes

The information on our PhD programmes also includes information on eligibility requirements and on how to apply for a PhD position. When we have a vacant position at the department, it will be advertised on the Stockholm University website. If you send in an application that does not refer to such an advertisement, it will not – as a rule – be taken under consideration.
