Qualification Details

You have graduated at Master’s level in disability research, psychology, cognitive science, medicine, or other subject of relevance for disability research, or completed courses with a minimum of 240 credits, at least 60 of which must be in advanced courses in a topic of relevance for disability research. Alternatively, you have gained essentially corresponding knowledge in another way.

This is a project where the doctoral student will work together with various interdisciplinary teams. It is, therefore, a basic requirement that applicants want to work in this way. Of particular relevance is an educational background within disability research, psychology, cognitive science or other subjects with relevance for disability research.

Of particular relevance is documented experience with systematic reviews, meta-analysis and reproducibility. Documented experience with the software R, R-Markdown, Zotero and Rayyan is of relevance. Documented experience of working in disability science, meta-science and / or interdisciplinary projects is also of relevance.

Since the project includes collaboration with international partners, the applicant should have a good command of English both orally and in writing

Responsibilities/Job Description

This position is within a project on open and reproducible systematic reviews in disability research. The doctoral student will, in collaboration with interdisciplinary teams, formulate research questions, systematically search and quality assess the literature, extract data, code effect sizes, do meta-analyses, and write scientific articles. The doctoral student will also collaborate with researchers in a project funded by the Swedish Research Council on meta-analyses in education. Within this project, there is an established collaboration with the research group Methods and Meta-science at the Linnaeus University, on the development of standards to increase the reproducibility in systematic reviews and meta-analyses, for example by contributing to the development of an interactive web platform for systematic reviews.

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.
