Perhaps some of our readers might be interested in the following funding opportunity for PhD in Game Semiotics, working with Espen Aarseth in Copenhagen. Here’s the email that Espen sent out with details of how to apply:
Dear Colleague,
As part of the team I am putting together for my ERC Advanced Grant project, MSG — Making Sense of Games, I am looking for a PhD student with excellent training in narrative theory and/or semiotics, and a keen interest in game hermeneutics. This is a salaried, three-year Scandinavian-style PhD fellowship, working language English, and the candidate must relocate to Copenhagen.
The call text and application form can be found here; the deadline is Oct 25th. Applicants must already have completed their MA thesis.
Thanks for your attention, and best wishes,
Espen Aarseth, Head of Research, Center for Computer Games Research, IT University of Copenhagen.
