Administration at the Department of Neuroscience

The Administration at the Department of Neuroscience provides services for economy, personnel/HR, etc.

Availability and presence in quarter A3 in Biomedicum during spring 2022

The Swedish Public Health Agency is introducing several temporary advice and recommendations to limit the spread of COVID-19 in society and to reduce the risk of the health care system being overburdened. The new temporary advice and recommendations apply until 31 January 2022.

The administrative staff at the department will therefore be working remotely from home to a greater extent until further notice. You can reach us as usual by e-mail, phone or in Teams.

If you need to meet a certain person from the administration, we recommend that you book an appointment directly with that person, regardless of whether you meet on site or remotely.

All matters concerning personnel and economy are managed centrally by the Department, with the goal that researchers and teachers will have more time for their primary activities.

For services that require specialist competence such as procurement and legal matters, assistance is acquired from the central KI administration.

IT related matters are handled by the Information Technology Office responsible for common IT infrastructure at Karolinska Institutet. Read more about IT in Biomedicum.

Besides providing service to researchers and teachers, another important task is that the Department administration is responsible for ensuring that all laws and rules are followed, as well as ensuring that the Department’s commission as a public authority is correctly managed.
