Sweden’s higher education institutions have now been feeling the effects of the pandemic for over a year. One group that has been particularly affected is doctoral candidates. Many doctoral candidates have had to re-plan their thesis work. They have not been able to carry out surveys and tests, interaction with colleagues has been difficult, field studies have had to be cancelled, participation in academic conferences and seminars has not happened as planned. Many doctoral candidates feel lonely or isolated when working more from home.
How has the pandemic impacted doctoral candidates’ employment? SULF, together with the SULF Doctoral Candidate Association and the SFS Doctoral Candidate Committee, invite you to a seminar on the regulations regarding extensions, the principles established by the higher education institutions and what doctoral candidates should think about with regard to documentation in individual study plans. What should doctoral candidates do if problems arise?
The seminar will discuss these issues and also present the results of a survey on how doctoral candidates view their working hours.
Date: Tuesday 13 April
