Welcome to Centre for Health Equity Studies

At Centre for Health Equity Studies, CHESS, researchers from sociology, psychology and public health sciences work together on issues of health and inequality. CHESS is the result of a collaboration between Stockholm University and Karolinska Institutet. In 2007, CHESS was appointed 'FAS centre' by Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (FORTE), granting long-term funding.

CHESS is looking for two professors

CHESS is now accepting applications for two positions, one professor in Public Health Science with a special focus on social epidemiology and one professor in Medical Sociology with a special focus on inequality. The application deadline for both positions is September 29.
