Phd student network

Phd student network

PhD students are extremely important for the industry and are part of the solution to the skills supply shortage that the sector is facing.

We want to create a natural meeting place within Swedish Mining Innovation’s PhD student network for PhD students involved in research in Sweden relating to mining. A meeting place that will provide needed information about career opportunities and research infrastructure.

The network has more than 30 members. Why not also join, or tell a PhD student about it!

“We want to build a framework for what we hope and believe, will help bring together PhD students with researchers, industry and authorities connected to the mining and exploration industry”

Swedish Mining Innovations PhD student network aims to create contacts and networks between PhD students, researchers  as well as authorities and industry which  are active in mining, metals production and exploration-related research and activities in Sweden.

As a member in the network you are invited to workshops where members and invited guests can discuss about PhD life in Sweden, research networking, and career opportunities after PhD in the academe and the industry. Attendance is open to any doctoral student in a field relevant to Swedish Mining Innovation.

There is no cost for participating in the network and its activities. Travel and accommodation for workshops will be covered by the programme.

Interested to join? Feel free to contact us anytime.

 


Why a PhD network?

Skills provision and innovative employees are a key factor for a future competitive mining and metal-producing industry. At present, it is difficult for doctoral students who are trained in mining and exploration related research to meet and make contact with each other as there is no common forum that makes this possible. It is equally difficult for doctoral students to get in touch with other researchers in the field as well as with industry and authorities. By a PhD student network, we want to bring together doctoral students with researchers, industry and authorities along the whole value chain including a broad range of disciplines. In addition to this, this network can help facilitate collaboration between Swedish universities regarding doctoral courses, and provide easier access to courses at different Swedish universities.
