Administration at the Department of Neuroscience

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

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.
