Coordinator for core facilities appointed
The Board of Research has appointed Anna Falk, Associate Professor and PI at the Department of Neuroscience, to coordinate issues related to core facilities at KI. As coordinator, Anna Falk will work closely together with the Vice-Dean of Infrastructure, and also be co-opted to the newly formed Infrastructure Committee.
The assignment comprises 20 percent of a full-time employment and is valid for the period 1 May 2017 to 30 April 2018. Among other things, the new coordinator will be responsible for an inventory of core facilities at KI/SCC. There is also a need to formulate definitions and quality criteria for the forthcoming announcement of central funding for core facilities starting in 2019.
“In the forthcoming call for proposals, we will require coordination between core facilities for the purchase of expensive equipment, for example. An important development area is also core facilities in collaboration with Stockholm County Council. With her knowledge and commitment, Anna Falk will be a great support in this work”, said Stefan Eriksson, Vice-Dean of Infrastructure.
