Announcement of grants for partial financing of new doctoral students within the research school in health science
The call covers up to 17 grants for partial financing of doctoral education at KI that shall be used to pay for doctoral student’s salaries.
The recruited doctoral students in the school will be offered a structured series of related courses and relevant activities.
The research school was established in year 2020 and this is the second announcement of grants for partial financing of doctoral education within the school. The courses within the school are expected to start 1 September 2023.
The main purpose of the school is to enhance healthcare education at the doctoral level and inspire high quality, healthcare-related research. One of the school’s focus areas will be implementation research. Other important aims are to contribute to the future teaching pool and to strengthen the research basis of first and second cycle education.
“The research school makes an important contribution to ensure teaching capacity on our vocational programmes”, says Annika Östman Wernerson, Academic vice president for education. “An inadequate supply of teachers/researchers is a top-priority risk at KI this year. We’re seeing problems of teaching staff shortages in many areas. It’s a complex problem and there’s no magic bullet that can solve it, so we need to approach it from many different angles."
“This new initiative fits well with Strategy 2030 and is a good example of how research and education can be mutually stimulating”, says Robert Harris, Academic vice president for doctoral education. “The initiative is important for research, for healthcare and for the scientific foundation of our education.”
