Access will also be offered to students outside Lund University. In order to increase cross-disciplinary understanding, it will support co-supervising over the faculty borders.
The research school will thus foster a new generation of researchers with an interdisciplinary training in the field of work, environment and health, as well as excellent professional national and international net-works. This is of special importance for the sustainability of occupational and environmental research in Sweden due to the current age structure. The aim is furthermore to develop the field, in that the research competence and skills developed shall be suited to tackle the full range of problems, from basic research on methods and pathomechanisms, to intervention in and design of work environments.
Metalund's coordinators, Associate Professor Maria Albin and Professor Mats Bohgard, have the overall scientific responsibility. Two directors of studies are responsible for the daily operations, Emilie Stroh and Joakim Pagels.
