Doctoral candidates association KI: lunch seminar Living with uncertainties


SULF Day by SULF Doctoral Candidates Association, October 6, KI

Are you a PhD student and want to know more about your rights? Have you experienced any issues at work and need support in dealing with them? Would you like to create a better work environment for PhD students in Sweden? Are you interested in joining SULF and/or Saco-S in their fight for change?

You are warmly welcome to a seminar by the SULF Doctoral Candidate Association!

The seminar is open to all PhD students. It is an opportunity to learn more about the work of SULF as a union for academics in Sweden and its Doctoral Candidate Association, to meet other doctoral candidates from different universities, to share experiences and learn from each other.

The theme of this year is Living with uncertainties. In our presentation, we will talk about the core functions of SULF, its relations to other organizations and ways of getting help in navigating the Swedish academia. The Aliens Act, mental health, social inequalities as well as other challenges PhD students face in their everyday lives – there is a lot to discuss!

When: October 6, 11:00-13:00. The seminar is at 11.00-12.00, followed by a light lunch with time to mingle at 12-13.00.
