Oslo National Academy of the Arts aims to conduct artistic research of international relevance that produces new works of art and design, new knowledge and offers new perspectives and insights on art and society. Artistic research at Oslo National Academy of the Arts is expected to be innovative, further the professional fields, and be based on artistic practice.

Oslo National Academy of the Arts has its own doctoral degree (PhD) in artistic research. Artistic practice is at the core of the artistic PhD result, and is to be accompanied by an explicit reflection, which, when the project is presented, grants others access into the working methods and insights that emerge from the artistic research. Oslo National Academy of the Arts is part of the joint Norwegian Artistic Research School that provides introduction to and training in artistic research methodology. At present time we have 27 active PhD candidates based at all six departments.

For 2020 Oslo National Academy of the Arts has vacancies in the fields of opera, theatre, dance, fine art and art and craft.

The new research fellows will take up the position from October 1, 2020. Workplace on a daily basis is at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Application deadline January 6, 2020.
