Appointment to associate professor (docent)

Holders of a doctoral degree that are active researchers/teachers at LUSEM are eligible to apply for appointment to associate professor (docent).

The Appointments Board (Lärarförslagsnämnden) prepares and submits proposals regarding appointments to associate professors (docents). Before the application can be submitted, the Research and PhD Education Committee (FFUN) at the department makes a qualitative pre-evaluation of the applicant's research production. These pre-evaluations take place two times annually, at the Committee's meetings in March and October. Contact the Director of Research and PhD programme well in advance if you consider submitting an application.

If the Committee finds you eligible, your complete application can be submitted to the Appointments Board. The application will be reviewed by an external expert, and the final decision regarding appointment to Associate Professor will be made by the dean of LUSEM.
