The Faculty of Education and International Studies announces a scholarship affiliated with the research group Leadership, Supervision and Organizational Development at the Department of Early Childhood Education.
The Ph.D. position will be associated with the research group Leadership, Supervision and Organizational Development. The research group’s research interests include leadership, supervision and organizational development related to Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC). The subject area is part of educational leadership, which is multidisciplinary and thus integrates theories and research across disciplines. The research areas within educational leadership deal both with management and leadership. While studies of management often address coordination of institutions and organizations, leadership studies focus on relations and power in organizations. In addition, leadership is seen in relation to macro-oriented research on public administration, organizational learning, and pedagogical work.
The Ph.D. position will be associated with the research group Leadership, Supervision and Organizational Development in Early Childhood Education. The proposed research project must be situated within research on ECEC leadership in a new time.
A main focus of the Ph.D. project will be to study the significance of changes in the field of ECEC for leaders and their leadership tasks. The understanding of leadership roles and development in the ECEC organizations are important factors for the improvement of ECEC quality. In recent years, several large kindergartens have been built, these are more complex organizations, more bureaucratic, and more professional. A general change in society with an increased diversity in the Norwegian society, is reflected among the employees in the kindergarten. The complexity means that greater demands are made on ECEC leaders, and there is a lack of research.
Relevant research areas include studies of how roles and responsibilities are exercised by ECEC teachers in various leadership positions in a time when ECEC organizations have changed a lot in recent years. What are the thoughts of directors, pedagogical leaders and ECEC teachers about their leadership roles and responsibilities? Are there any changes in the ways in which they exercise their leadership? How are changing organizational frameworks changing leadership roles and functions? How will organizational structures affect interaction and collaboration between the various leadership roles in ECEC organizations?
