About the Project

Third-cycle subject: Technology and Health

The doctoral education will be undertaken within the programme “Technology and Health”. The research work will primarily be performed in the laboratory facilities of the Division of Environmental Physiology, which carries out research related to medical and physiological problems that may occur in diving and flying settings, and also during exposure to high altitude or in hot or cold climates.

During the doctoral project, the PhD student will build upon previous work performed by the Division of Environmental Physiology and will conduct a series of experimental studies, in healthy humans, investigating the interaction of ambient pressure and content of the breathing gas on physiological functions and/or sensitivity to decompression strain. The main tasks of the PhD student will be to i) manage and carry through the research project, ii) attend PhD courses, and iii) write scientific articles and the PhD thesis, and defend the PhD thesis.

Supervision: The doctoral student will be supervised by Prof. Ola Eiken, Dr Antonis Elia & Dr Mikael Gennser, KTH.
