I will be looking for enthusiastic and hard working undergraduate, master’s students on an ongoing basis and then PhD students, and PostDocs starting (hopefully) Winter 2020 depending on funding.
The Swedish academic system is a little different than the North American one I was in so here are a few helpful things to note:
-At LiU the academic year runs on blocks and not semesters or quarters which means things are quick but also allows for some really focused attention on a class or project. Here is some helpful information for incoming students at LiU.
-Undergraduates can do some pretty great honors projects towards the end of their degrees.
-Master’s students have a lot of classes but can do research projects in a lab the second year. These are usually unpaid.
-PhDs are usually 5 years and come with good financial support and training. This means PhDs are usually under the umbrella of a Swedish or EU funded project, but co-supervision with other universities is also possible for students coming in with strong independent ideas (as well as their own scholarships).
