PhD students

Do you want to be a PhD student working on topic that makes a difference? At the M3S unit we are looking for motivated and talented PhD candidates to work with us in creating a future where digital technologies would help people to be healthier and happier.
The University of Oulu is now in the process of hiring PhD candidates for the Information Technology and Electrical Engineering Doctoral Programme, and at M3S we want to support candidates who are interested in working on any of the following aspects of digital health:

  • Developing eHealth solutions for specific conditions, such as disabilities or chronic conditions
  • Investigating how eHealth solutions create value for patients, healthcare professionals and society
  • Creating knowledge to help designers and developers of digital health services to design services which have an impact and create value

We work closely with different stakeholders from the health ecosystem, such as companies developing technologies used in healthcare, healthcare providers, patient associations, and other academic and non-academic institutions. As a PhD candidate, you will have access to our network and support, making sure that you carry out a high-impact doctoral project.
While the unit’s focus is on Information Processing Science or Software Engineering, we also welcome candidates from other disciplines who have the understanding and motivation to learn how digital technologies can be used for health.
