Become a Researcher

Third-cycle education in the Faculty of Science is the province of scholars interested in problems in science, mathematics or conservation. The education is intended to give you a thorough understanding of your discipline and the tools you need to independently formulate problems and critically examine research findings.

Research is usually carried out in groups. Your research may take you to exotic settings like Antarctica, the Amazon, the Pacific Ocean or our own Latnjajaure in northern Sweden. No matter where your interests lie, you are about to embark upon a fascinating and enriching experience that, in most cases, will end with a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree (240 higher education credits). A Ph.D. degree involves four years of full-time study; however, because the education usually includes some teaching duties, it often takes five years to earn a doctoral degree.
