University of Gothenburg

Natural Sciences/ Mathematics, specialising in Educational Sciences

The aim of the doctoral programme is to provide the student with the tools necessary for becoming an independent and analytical scientist, with the ability to plan, execute and present, both orally and in writing, scientific projects examining the fields of knowledge development, teaching and education within mathematics/the natural sciences. Moreover, it shall develop in-depth subject knowledge, and an understanding of applicable scientific methods within mathematics/the natural sciences and educational science respectively, as well as an awareness about the different subjects’ theoretical framework. The research area is inherently inter-disciplinary, thus collaboration with scientists from other fields will constitute a vital part of the programme.
