PhD studies and careers
Preparation for a life-long career is performed at the Karlstad University doctoral education in Computer Science along four dimensions:
- Research skills
- Fundraising skills
- Applied research, innovation & industry research skills
- Teaching skills
The underlying assumption is that the future job market will require swift movements between academic research, academic teaching and supervision, academic and (possibly externally funded) applied research, industry research and development. Essential for the swift permeation between careers is the acquisition of insights both about the academic career path and the industry career paths. Complimentary, an international perspective opens prospects from student and graduate mobility potentials.
