The PhD programme in the Social Psychology of Everyday Life provides researcher education in theoretical and methodological approaches to investigating and understanding people's everyday life. The programme is based on an interdisciplinary development of theory, knowledge and methodology, with particular reference to social psychological issues that relate to the relationship between the individual and society, and people's everyday social life. Thus, the programme is characterised by a cross-disciplinary approach to social-psychological issues in a broad sense.
The PhD programme in the Social Psychology of Everyday Life is administered by a programme manager and a steering committee comprised of representatives of the programme's PhD students and research groups. We wish to develop the programme as a research site, where the PhD students participate as colleagues in research groups and research exchange generally at the institute, while consideration is also given to their particular position, questions and dilemmas in relation to their special employment and task of writing a PhD thesis.
The PhD students can find supervisors among all the staff at associate professor and professor level. The PhD students participate in the ongoing research and development of the research groups and have the opportunity there to regularly present and process their projects. The PhD students at the programme are thus included in the research groups’ international collaboration, for example through international visits to the research groups, continuous networks and cooperation projects, as well as international conferences and seminars.
