Om jobbet

We are looking for a professor for a permanent position in neurosurgery at the School of medical science.

Subject area

The subject area for the position is medical science with a specialisation in neurosurgery.


The Faculty of Medicine and Health at Örebro University is a thriving young faculty. Örebro University was granted degree-awarding powers for medical training, in the form of the Degree of Master of Science in Medicine, in the spring 2010 and its programme in medicine is now well-established. Intense efforts for further development of the programme are underway at the same time as preparations are made for the introduction of the new six-year programme in medicine, leading to a licence to practise, in the autumn 2021. Parallel to this, research is being developed both within biomedical basic sciences and clinical research – in many instances through close collaboration between the two. The development of clinical research is also pursued in close collaboration between the university and Region Örebro County, within the scope of a regional agreement on funding for medical training and research (ALF).

Neuro and trauma care are prioritised areas of development at Örebro University Hospital (USÖ) and the continued expansion of neurosurgical activities are viewed as strategically significant. In 2021, a neurointervention resource will be established at USÖ, enabling comprehensive care at the acute stage of cerebrovascular disease. The trauma organisation is developing in close collaboration between a number of disciplines.

To facilitate the continued expansion of neuroscience research, neuro and trauma care, as well as the medical school in Örebro, Örebro University is now looking for a professor of medical science with a specialisation in neurosurgery.
