Kompensasjon som følge av korona / COVID-19 Compensation

English version follows below

Uavhengig av hvilke retningslinjer som gjelder vil det å dokumentere produktivitetstap være viktig.

Kjære kolleger,

Som stipendiater har denne tida vært spesiell tøff. Vi er midlertidig ansatte, og har hovedansvar for et prosjekt som skal bli ferdig på kort tid, og vi er ansatt basert på tiden det vil ta å fullføre prosjektet. Konsekvensene av koronatida har vært spesielt store for oss. De som ikke har tapt noe progresjon etter den siste tida tilhører mindretallet. Nå har det kommet retningslinjer for søknad om ekstra tid, men dette gjelder ikke med en gang alle. Og denne teksten er derfor ment som en utdypelse av hvem det gjelder og hva du kan gjøre for at den kan gjelde deg hvis du skulle trenge det – i fremtiden.

PhD-night: The trial lecture and the public defence

Welcome to the last PhD night of this semester on December 10th. This evening we will address the trial lecture and public defence. What happens between handing in your dissertation and the defence? How does the opponent decide the theme of the trial lecture? What does the opponent look for in the defence? Moreover, how did the PhD-student spend the last two weeks preparing for the trial lecture and defence?

We have invited an administrative facilitator, an opponent and a former PhD student to share their experiences with the trial lecture and the defence. Thus, providing you with the tips for a successful disputation!

There will be time for questions after each talk.

 

Time:  Tuesday December 10th, 16.30

Place: Deiglig Fyrhuset, Pilestredet 52

Work life after the PhD?

– Do you ever wonder what you are going to do when you finish your PhD?

– Would you like career counseling at OsloMet?

– Do you wonder how to build a research career, and what transferable skills you actually have?

Next week, at the Research Career Day 2019 you might get some valuable input on that. More info and sign up for the event here: https://ansatt.oslomet.no/hva-skjer/-/aktivitet/phd-career-day. This event is planned by FoU, HR og OsloMet Career.
