Faculty of Health Sciences announces one PhD fellowship in the area of Stroke Rehabilitation Intervention and Co-Creation.

Read more about the Faculty of Technology, Art and Design (TKD) and The Faculty of Health Sciences (HV).

The fellowship will be for a period of three years, or alternatively, four years including 25% compulsory work (teaching and supervision activities or research administrative work). The issue of whether a 3- or 4-year position is suitable will be discussed as part of the interview process. The academic work is to result in a doctoral thesis that will be defended at the Faculty to obtain the degree PhD.

The research fellowship is affiliated to the PhD programme in Health Sciences.

The work of the PhD student will be integrated to the digital health research at OsloMet. It will be also linked to the Intelligent Health program; an interdisciplinary initiative where researchers in health, technology, design and social science work together to find sustainable solutions to society's health challenges. In order to solve these challenges, new arenas must be created at the interfaces between health-, technology- and social sciences, key institutions such as health trusts, municipalities, as well as the private sectors and users. Research therefore often takes place close to the community and is user- and needs-oriented. Intelligent Health will contribute new knowledge, research, innovation and a more future-oriented education of tomorrow's health care professionals.
