Responsibilities/Job Description

Volunteers are increasingly seen as societal resources, in Sweden and internationally, including emergency management, first response and crisis management.

You will have some flexibility in designing your own Ph. D. project and are at the same time expected to collaborate with other researchers at the department and in CARER. You can have a background in, for example, systems development, information systems, logistics, communication systems, risk management, organizational/business development, design science, cognitive science or computer science. The Ph. D. project will involve both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Knowledge in both types of methods is thus deemed meriting. Knowledge of the application domain emergency and crisis response is also meriting but not necessary.

As a doctoral student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.
