Meet Karin Bradley, Assistant Professor at KTH
KTH is a strong research institution covering a multitude of areas, including natural sciences, engineering, architecture, industrial management and urban planning. The atmosphere is open and collaborative, with the expressed purpose of overcoming traditional barriers between academic disciplines. We also collaborate closely with industry and society, which creates a natural arena – and better conditions – for the practical implementation of research results. At KTH, you will have the opportunity to bring your ideas to life, and at the same time contribute to society.
Our approach is broad. We pursue interdisciplinary research alongside the work of research groups within specific disciplines, and basic research is conducted side-by-side with applied research.
KTH’s centre-driven research is often conducted in collaboration with other universities, industry or various societal bodies. Our competence centres address, above all, newer subject areas. Several of Sweden's national research centres are hosted by KTH. Our young scientists also get access to several state-of-the-art laboratories and other ultramodern environments, where they can operate and develop.
KTH is a major partner in two of the three European Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) formed by the prestigious EU organization, European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Our collaborations within the KICs, EIT ICT Labs and Sustainable Energy (InnoEnergy), help make Europe a global leader in innovation. The consortia include research institutes, major engineering companies and several leading technical universities in Europe.
The KTH Tenure Track is an academic career path for young researchers who hold a PhD and normally also has experience from postdoctoral research. A spot in the program means a long-term commitment from the faculty, providing you with resources and development opportunities. These include networking and support for development both as a scientist and as a teacher/supervisor.
