The Department of Archivistics, Library and Information Science currently has available one PhD fellow position affiliated With the PhD program in Library and Information Science.
Digitization has led to extensive changes in records and archiving processes, which are increasingly crossing operational boundaries and the boundaries between the public and private sectors. Information is increasingly reused for many different processes, case handling and services are becoming automated, and the distinction between active and preserved information has become less apparent. Service and operational processes are documented to a greater degree, which results in larger amounts of data being produced, including data that does not necessarily fall under the records and archiving concepts.
An ICT-political goal stated in the report to the Norwegian parliament titled “Digital agenda for Norge” [“Digital Agenda for Norway”] is to have case handling and service provision carried out to greater extent from the perspective of the user.
The overarching research aim of the project is to better understand the consequences of user-oriented digitization and archiving processes. Applicants must prepare a project proposal with a relevant research topic and methodology.
The successful applicant will be an integrated member of the research group Information systems based on metadata (METAINFO), which holds regular meetings and seminars where participants can present and obtain feedback on their research their research.
The duration of the PhD fellowship is three years.
