General Assembly 2017

All UiO PhD candidates, Postdocs, and other interested people are cordially invited to UiODoc’s 2017 annual General Assembly (GA). After the meeting we will hold a social event with free tapas.

As UiODoc exists to represent you, your opinion and your needs, we welcome your participation and input on all matters to be discussed at the meeting. First and foremost, we are looking for new members to join our board. We invite anyone who is interested in leading a dynamic and enterprising board to candidate. Your main responsibility is to represent UiODoc in various contexts, meet with the University leadership, and outline strategies for a good representation of the interests of the fixed-term employees. But you won’t be doing this alone! A dedicated board will assist you in making the work of UiODoc a success! Some of the existing board members are stepping down and everyone is welcome to nominate themselves or others for election. Board members receive a financial compensation for their work and time.

Please find the board position names, responsibilities, and tasks here:
