In what ways do the performance of, referral to, and position on masculinity and homosexuality help explain the differences in the success of the populist radical right leaders and parties (i.e. LPF, PVV and FvD) in Dutch society and its constituent parts?
That is the central research question you will be asked to answer as our PhD candidate.
Your main tasks will be to answer the research questions by connecting theories and concepts from the literatures on voting, leadership, media, masculinity, and homonationalism. Also, you will conduct innovative empirical research on a diverse set of actors, such as party leaders, media, party aficionados and voters. You will apply a multi-method perspective to a range of sources, potentially including party manifestos, books published by party leaders, parliamentary material, traditional news media and social media coverage, and voter data.
To be able to do this, you will have to be proactive in finding and analysing empirical sources. Moreover, you will write scientific articles, participate in conferences, seminars and other scholarly activities, contribute to teaching, and complete a PhD dissertation within four years.
You are expected to have a clear affinity for and relevant experience with the topic and multi-methods research, as evidenced by:
Fixed-term contract: you will be appointed for an initial period of 18 months, after which your performance will be evaluated. If the evaluation is positive, the contract will be extended by 2.5 years.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 22,000 students and 5,000 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
