It is important for us doctoral students to be represented in committees, collegiums and boards at both central and faculty level.

TS & KS: Right now we are looking for two doctoral representatives: one at the Research Board/Forskningsnämnden (FNN) at the Faculty of Technology and Society (TS) and one at the Faculty Board/Fakultetsstyrelsen at the Faculty of Culture and Society (KS).

HS: We are looking for a President (ordförande) for the Doctoral collegium at Health and Society (HS) to get the collegium running.

A doctoral representative at a ‘Research Board’ or ‘Faculty Board’ gets refunded 10 working days/year. As President for a Doctoral collegium you get refunded 20 working days/year. It’s a win-win situation: you get to help improve the doctoral education at Malmö University and represent your colleagues, while extending your PhD time. This is helpful for people that would like to do something else besides teaching or do not get offered teaching opportunities. Of course there is work to be done, but the remunerated hours are generous. (Remember that 10 days are 80 hours and this means two weeks of extension). All doctoral students employed at Malmö university are entitled to the prolongation.
