Great interest in doctoral position

2020-09-18

A recently announced doctoral student position in global health at the department has created great interest with 204 applications being received from all over the world. The doctoral project, which is part of the new center formation WoMHeR, will focus on women's mental health and urbanization.
- It is amazing with so many applicants, it shows the great interest in global health. There are so many well qualified and it is a pity that we can only hire one, says Mats Målqvist, future supervisor. The Department of Women's and Children's Health is a main stakeholder and initiator of WoMHeR, and the department has been awarded 5 of the 16 doctoral student places within the center.
