In this year’s round, Örebro University had all five of its applications within the Swedish Knowledge Foundation’s programme for strategic recruitment approved; three associate senior lecturers, one lecturer and one international visiting professor.
"Örebro University has several strong environments, with a smart and systematic approach to broadening their group's skills," says Malin Henningsson, Programme Coordinator at the Knowledge Foundation.
The associate senior lecturers will be recruited to three different research environments: Life Science Centre, Nutrition-Gut-Brain Interactions Research Centre (NGBI) and Inflammatory Response and Infection Susceptibility Centre (iRiSC). The School of Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Meal Science will receive a lecturer and a visiting professor, linked to the University's strategic focus area, Food and health.
