Research

The doctoral studies arefirst and foremost an education. It is of great importance that the department educates PhDs or Licentiates with an internationally regarded high competence within the department’s own areas of competence. The idea is that the education should generate new researchers as well as PhDs or Licentiates dispersing up-to-date knowledge through teaching activities occurring at the Faculty and in the larger society.

The aim of the education is also to produce researchers that will be experts and who are attractive to the international job market. The education makes a large contribution to the department’s research, primarily in the form of scientific publications and dissertations.

The doctoral studies will prepare the student for research, leadership, teaching, and administration. A large part of the education will be adjusted for the individual. The department strives to have a stimulating educational environment, a suitable offering of courses, to initiate research schools, to have engaged and well educated advisors, provide possibilities to create networks, and to actively support and follow up the research education. At the department there are unique possibilities for the research students to use data gathered by the department’s own environmental monitoring programs.
