Unique opportunities for PhD students

The graduate school aims to provide doctoral students with the necessary basic scientific knowledge to be able to analyse, develop and activively contribute to research on the future sustainable use of forests.

The graduate school includes both university-employed and industry-/collaboration based students funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The doctoral students are offered to participate in courses and activities, there is also possibility for other PhD students to participate without having direct funding from the program. Through teaching by leading researchers in each field, the doctoral students get both a solid scientific foundation and cutting-edge knowledge. The graduate school also aims to familiarize doctoral students with Swedish forestry and form a strong, professional and international network in both academia and industry.

The recruitment of the first PhD students of the research school begins in 2024.

The Research School in Future Silviculture is planned to run until 2030.
