  • Conduct review, survey and analyze relevant scientific and technical literature in the field.
  • Based on current research and state-of-the-art technology, develop novel approaches to autonomous transport and connected vehicles. The research will include both modeling, simulation, and experiment/testbeds. Sensing, vehicular communication technologies, and Artificial Intelligence technique in autonomous transport and connected vehicles will also be studied in this context. 
  • Systematically develop and test solutions and methods in a research lab environment.
  • Engage with national and international research collaborators, both from academia and companies as the project will be in collaboration with industry.
  • Present research results in scientific publications, conferences, and specialized events.

Qualifications

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle courses and study programmes at a higher education may be appointed to doctoral studentships (Chapter 5, Section 3 of the Higher Education Ordinance). Preparation of admission to postgraduate education and employment as a doctoral student take place in parallel.

Our research and education are characterised by the role we believe a university should play in an open society — to contribute to sustainability and equality in a scientifically grounded way with external partners and stakeholders. Identifying and addressing the challenges of the future are of highest priority. Our researchers and students work collaboratively to create, share and spread knowledge in order to understand, explain and develop society — both locally and globally.

Faculty of Education and Society

The Faculty of Education and Society is characterised by fresh ideas in the formulation of educational programmes and in its collaboration with schools, local authorities, organisations and business. The faculty, which has about 7,500 students and 320 employees, consists of six departments: Children, Youth and Society (BUS), Sport Sciences (IDV), Society, Culture and Identity (SKI), Culture, Languages and Media (KSM), Natural Science, Mathematics and Society (NMS) and School Development and Leadership (SOL).

The faculty has degree- awarding powers in all programmes, with bachelor and master degrees in Pre-School and Education as the goal, and in sports and educational programmes at third cycle level. There are also programmes for study and career guidance counsellors and special educational needs teachers. The Faculty is situated in the building Orkanen, at Hjälmarkajen, next to the central station.

The Department of Sport Sciences

The Department of Sport Sciences is a broad multidisciplinary environment whose core is sport as a multifaceted societal phenomenon and knowledge area. Our programmes are characterised by a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical understanding with a well-developed action competence.

The department offers sport- related programmes on the first- second- and third-cycle levels. Its active and successful sport science research environment comprises a variety of specialisations whose primary focus lies within the social science field. The department also has a well-developed cooperation network within sport practice.

Sport sciences specializing in social sciences and the humanities

The focus on research education in Sport Sciences specializing on social sciences and the humanities lies on the forms of sport and on their past, present and future importance to society. The education comprises a range of areas from competitive, recreational and experience sports to sport as a school subject including outdoor education, physical recreation and ecological sustainability. The contribution of sport to society is studied on the basis of problem complexes like sport regulation and normativity, state, market and civil society relation to sport, sport’s own selection mechanisms, as well as the way societal structures and social categories, such as gender, ethnicity, sexuality, generation and social class, affect and are affected by sport and within the school subject (PE).

The sport science research environment includes some 15 researchers as well as an almost equal number of doctoral students. The research is primarily within the humanities and the social sciences, and in regard to the research conducted at the department, sport is considered to be a multi-dimensional, societal and cultural phenomenon and includes physical activity, physical education (PE), exercise and sport performance. This also include research on elite sport.

We especially welcome applications from the fields of

  • Sport Management
  • Health equality (including how to understand and address social determinants of health in relation to space, place and organisations)

Content and duties

Those who are employed as doctoral students are expected to primarily devote themselves to their own research education (located at Malmö University). The intended degree is a PhD, which corresponds to a 4-year full-time research education. Departmental duties may amount to a maximum of 20% of fulltime employment. If so, the doctoral student is compensated with an equivalent extension of the study period.

Eligibility

The processes of admission to research education and employment as a doctoral student run in parallel. The basic eligibility for admission includes the following:

  • having completed a second-cycle level degree,
  • having fulfilled course requirements comprising a minimum of 240 higher education credits, including at least 60 second-cycle credits, or
  • having in other ways, inside or outside Sweden, substantially acquired the equivalent (Higher Education Ordinance Ch. 7, section 39)

Specific eligibility

Specific eligibility applies to those having obtained the command of language required by the education as well as having presented an approved independent study within sport sciences, comprising at least 15 second-cycle credits, or having been assessed by Malmö University as possessing the equivalent knowledge.

Bases for assessment
