The most important thing in all activities is the people! Is this extra true when starting a knowledge centre? During the autumn / winter of 2021, we have been looking for research and teaching staff with different profiles. From different subject fields and with different experiences. Now we have found a number of enthusiastic employees for the start-up of the centre.

Our recruitment strategy

We think that the set-up stage of a new knowledge centre should be characterised by curiosity, creativity and work across traditional disciplinary boundaries. The activities are now to be shaped by a committed team of part-time staff within the Birgit Rausing Centre for Medical Humanities.

During the entire recruitment process, we thought not only on the individual competence profiles, but also on the collective competence our team would represent. Thanks to the breadth of expertise to be gathered at the centre, medical humanities can develop locally, but also at the national and international levels.

Interested in working with us?
