The Docent Committee

Denna sida på svenska

The Docent Committee assesses docentship applications. The committee consists of 12 ordinary members who meet regularly during the year. Three members are appointed by the Board of Higher Education, three by the Board of Doctoral Education and three by the Board of Research. The chairman is appointed by the Vice-Chancellor. The student unions and the Doctoral Students Association each appoint one ordinary member and one deputy.

The most important role of the Docent Committee is to assess whether newly received docentship applications are sufficient to be sent for expert review and to make a final assessment of applications once experts have given their review.

The Docent Committee decides whether applications is approved or rejected. There is no formal right to appeal the committee’s decisions.
