Boards of employment

Preparatory bodies for teaching positions

At each faculty there is a preparatory body for recruitment and promotion matters for teachers. At most faculties, the preparatory body is called the employment board. The board's work is based on Linnaeus University's appointment procedure for teachers.

Matters that are normally prepared are:

  • Permanent employment
  • Meritorious positions (postdoctoral researcher, associate senior lecturer)
  • Promotion matters
  • Appointment as an unpaid associate professor

The board's task is to provide decision-makers with documentation and proposals for decisions. Decision-makers in each case are stated in the vice-chancellor's and dean's delegation order.

The composition of the board varies, common to the different boards are:

Members from the faculty
Student representative
HR Partner
