a woman

The study coordinator is part of the graduate school's management team and convenes the graduate school's pedagogical working group.

Cecilia Petterson is an assistant senior lecturer at one of the partner universities - Örebro University. She will work as a study coordinator within the framework of her employment there, on behalf of SWEAH.

- It is very nice that we are now getting a study coordinator from one of our partner universities. This is completely in line with SWEAH's ambitions that our partners should also be included in the management of the graduate school, says Susanne Iwarsson, who is coordinator for SWEAH.

Cecilia was a CASE PhD student in 2009-2014 and has many years of clinical experience in rehabilitation and occupational therapy. She has worked at various universities (Lund, Umeå, Jönköping, Chalmers and Örebro) with both teaching and research.

She is a member of Sweden's Occupational Therapists' expert panel with a focus on issues related to the older people and assistive devices, and an expert in SBU's project on Assistive devices relating to movement and mobility for people with permanently impaired mobility.

Cecilia is also one of the leaders of the research group Äldres hälsa, vård, vardagsliv och aktivitet (ÄLVA) at Örebro University.

The assignment as study coordinator within SWEAH includes development, planning and implementation of courses at graduate level, contacts with the graduate school's partners, doctoral students and supervisors, work with quality development and evaluation, documentation (including scientific publication related to the graduate school's development and results).

The study coordinator is also active in the development and implementation of activities and practical mentoring to support the qualification and career development of the postdoctoral fellows who have annual assignments for SWEAH included in the assignment.
