VID Specialized University has up to three vacant PhD positions with focus on education research, relevant for VID’s study programmes in health and social studies, leadership studies, diakonia and theology.
VID Specialized University wants to strengthen the research at VID related to education and learning within VID’s areas of expertise. VID has an ambition to be a considerable and unique actor in the education field, anchored in diaconal and ecclesiastical traditions. In accordance with this ambition, VID has expressed as its vision to educate “next generation professionals” who hold a strong awareness of values.
All VID’s study programmes aim to equip candidates with a high level of awareness of values and ability for professional assessment and critical reflection. But what does this mean in a society undergoing major changes where values are challenged? What does this mean in the context of increased focus on technology, cost benefit thinking and standardization in the health and welfare sector? What does this mean in light of increased diversity and pluralism in communities, and increasing inequality nationally and globally?
We welcome project applications exploring themes related to value aspects and formation processes in professional studies.
