Administration at the Department of Neuroscience

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

Presence in quarter A3 in Biomedicum during autumn 2021

As a consequence of the ongoing pandemic and spread of COVID-19, and in line with the recommendations of Swedish authorities and KI, the administrative staff at the department will continue to mainly work remotely. On this page you will find information on how to get in touch with the administrative units at the department until further notice.

However, if necessary and if there are reasonable reasons to meet physically, we will of course make ourselves available. We all have a responsibility not to contribute to the rapid spread of the infection that is now taking place within Stockholm.

You can reach us as usual by e-mail, phone or in Teams.

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.
