Om jobbet

Södertörn University is a higher education institution in Stockholm that conducts education, research and collaboration with the surrounding community for sustainable societal development. Education and research are conducted in the humanities, social sciences, technology and natural sciences. The university also provides police and teacher education programmes with intercultural profiles. A significant amount of our research is multidisciplinary and specialises in the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe. At Södertörn University we combine subjects, perspectives, people and experiences, searching for surprising syntheses, challenges and development.

The School of Social Sciences offers research and education in Business Studies, Economics, International Relations, Journalism, Political Science, Psychology, Public Law, Social Work and Sociology. The school specialises in how people interact, socially and psychologically, in terms of politics, economics, law, and the media. Research at the school ranges from individual wellbeing to interactions between nation states. We have nationally and internationally recognised researchers who head research projects in our strategic research areas, including the Dynamics of Entrepreneurship; Art, Culture and the Economy; Social Movements; Public Procurement and Political Psychology.

As a doctoral student in Social Work, you will join a research environment that offers multidisciplinary perspectives and an advanced curriculum. Doctoral students are affiliated with a Social Science research area called Politics, Economy and the Organisation of Society (PESO), encompassing the disciplines of Business Studies, Journalism, Political Science, Social Work, and Sociology. 

Social Work at Södertörn University is distinguished by its lively research and teaching environment. Our research fields include: families, children, and youths; ageing; disability; addiction; health; urban studies; segregation; civil society and social movements; the welfare state and globalisation; professions and organisations.
