Lund University, The Department of Service Management and Service Studies

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is regularly ranked as one of the world’s top 100 higher education institutions. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Social Sciences is one of Sweden’s leading centres of knowledge for research and education in the social and behavioural sciences, with activities in both Lund and Helsingborg. The Department of Service Management and Service Studies is located in Campus Helsingborg.

The department conducts education and research to understand, problematise and contribute to the development of services and the service society. Critical societal perspectives are of particular importance to the department’s education and research. Teaching staff and researchers at the department represent different disciplinary fields and perspectives, such as service studies, ethnology, sociology, human geography, human ecology, environmental strategy and business administration, which combine to form the basis for our interdisciplinary education and research.

Our study programmes provide students with specific knowledge of services and their conditions and development in organisations and in society. The study programmes apply several different scholarly approaches to services, including social, economic, environmental, ethical, historical, spatial and cultural perspectives. Our teaching staff are also interested in developing teaching methods and tools to facilitate students’ learning.

Service Studies

Service Studies is a young and interdisciplinary research field focusing on investigating and problematising services. At the Department of Service Management and Service Studies, we examine services from a sustainable, economic, cultural and social perspective, moving between public and private service production. Service Studies is a subject which not only interrogates the service society on the basis of intellectual premises, but also identifies and problematises concrete issues defined by the sectors and organisations we study and collaborate with. The research is organised into five broad themes: consumption and retail, sustainability and services, organisation, management and service work, welfare services in the welfare society, and tourism and hospitality.

Sustainability

Sustainability research is a profile area at the department that we want to reinforce. The research proposed in the application should have a clear link to sustainability. The application can usefully relate to areas in which the department is prominent such as the sustainable production and consumption of food, the circular economy, waste management services, mobility, fashion, tourism and sustainability, sustainable cities and services and digitisation from a sustainability perspective. However, it is also possible to suggest other sustainability themes.

Duties

The PhD programme consists of 240 credits (equivalent to four years of full-time studies) and is concluded with the public defence of a doctoral thesis. The appointed doctoral student will receive a salary from the University during four years, and his or her main obligation is to complete their PhD studies, which primarily includes an independently written doctoral thesis. The position may involve departmental duties, mainly in the form of teaching, up to 20 per cent of fulltime working hours, in which case the appointment will be extended by the equivalent number of hours. The terms of employment for doctoral students are regulated in the Swedish Higher Education ordinance, Chapter 5, Sections 1-7.

The doctoral student is expected to be present and actively participate in the research environment in the department.

PhD student in meteorology

Lund University, Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition. The Faculty of Science conducts research and education within Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees.

Clouds containing ice at sub-zero temperatures cover wide areas of the globe. Their phase changes during global warming have been predicted to influence climate change.  Their severe weather, in the form of hail or freezing rain on the ground or on air, causes much damage.

Initiation of ice inside clouds is crucial because the numbers of crystals in clouds control the production of snow, freezing rain, graupel and hail. Initiation of ice affects the latent heating and dynamics of clouds.  However, there is much uncertainty about ice initiation.

Jobbassignment
The work will involve numerical modeling. Lab observations from a partner institution of a new process of fragmentation of ice will be represented. The role of the process will be assessed for individual clouds with our aerosol-cloud models. After validation of the simulations, various analyses will be performed for four basic cloud-types. This will involve coding with FORTRAN 90 in a UNIX environment.

Desirable skills and qualifications
The applicant must have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in physics or equivalent field.

  • Applicant should have experience of FORTRAN in UNIX environment.

It is desirable to have documented knowledge from their university education in

  • Mathematics, especially differential equations
  • Numerical methods and/or computer programming
  • Physical meteorology (e.g. cloud physics).

In the application, applicants should provide evidence of how they meet these requirements.


Eligibility
Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.
