Interdisciplinary perspectives on work, stress, health and performance

Interdisciplinary perspectives on work, stress, health and performance
PhD course

PART I: 3.5 ECTs
PART II: 4 ECTs

Scope of the course
The concept of stress inherently span the macro-level, focusing on the organization of societies and public policies, to the micro-level, exploring psycho-physiological processes and mechanisms, and research advancing knowledge in this area should, therefore, be interdisciplinary. The general aim of the course is to bridge the existing gap between different disciplines by presenting and discussing interdisciplinary perspectives on work-related stress − its causes, and effects on health and performance. Drawing on the combined expertise of the research units involved in the Stockholm Stress Center Graduate School, the course offers a unique interdisciplinary learning environment for gaining in-depth understanding of stress in various work contexts

PART I: Course overview
An introductory workshop on stress is given on the first course day, where the concept of stress is introduced from an interdisciplinary perspective. The main part of the course is then given at the six research units within in the SSC Graduate School – the Division for Work and Organizational Psychology at Stockholm University, the Epidemiological unit and the Sleep unit at the Stress Research Institute, Stockholm University, the Division of Psychology and the Division of Insurance Medicine at Karolinska Institutet, and Centre for Musculoskeletal Research at Gävle University. The research units offer one course day each. The course days will be including research presentations, a literature seminar, and a seminar discussing the overall relations between the different research fields and their connection to the notion of stress.
For details, please see the course homepage for part I at the Stockholm Stress Center!

PART II: Course overview
After completion of part I, the course can be cotinued with a second part that focuses on a written assignment where each student shall discuss and critically reflect upon the relationship between interdisciplinary perspectives on work, stress, health and performance, and an individually chosen research question. This research question should preferably be aligned with the topic of the PhD student’s own research.
For details, please see the course homepage for part II at the Stockholm Stress Center!

For whom?
For PhD students pursuing a PhD thesis within social sciences including public health. Plase note: Part II is a continuation of Part I, and in order to be eligible for Part II, the doctoral student must have completed Part I of the course.

Course dates
Part I: March 21th – May 2nd 2018,
Part II: May 2nd 2018 – June 12th 2018

Arbete och teknik

Arbetsmarknad & Arbetsliv erbjuder härmed forskare möjligheten att få medverka i tidskriftens temanummer om arbete och teknik. Artiklarna kan behandla arbete och teknik i vid mening. De kan exempelvis röra digitalisering, robotisering, auto­ matisering och hur detta påverkar och samverkar med arbetsmarknad, arbetsliv, organisation och ledning samt vilka konsekvenser det får för grupper och individer. Vi är övertygade om att det finns en mängd spännande forskning inom detta, för arbetslivsforskningen klassiska, område och att vi tillsammans kan skapa ett mycket intressant temanummer.

För att manus ska bedömas ska det vara skrivet enligt tidskriftens författar­ instruktioner: https://www.kau.se/arbetsmarknad-och-arbetsliv
Färdigt manus ska vara inskickat senast den 31 mars 2018 till a&a@kau.se

Välkommen att skicka in ett manus!
