I’m happy to annouce that we are about to embark on the third edition of the Development programme for doctoral students. Against the background that the first two editions was highly appreciated by the participants, the Local development fund at Umeå university generously decided to fund the programme for another year. For that we are grateful!
Building on experiences from previous years, we have engaged in further improving the programme by for example updating the structure. The most obviously change we made is that we have moved from three modules to two steps. One step for doctoral students prior to their mid-seminar, and another for students who are in the later stage of their education.
Similar to previous years, the development programme is given in collaboration between the HR department at Umeå university and Feelgood, the occupational health services, where I have had the pleasure to work with the very talented Johanna Stenling.
The program is from today open for applications. The deadline for step 1 is August the 30th, and the deadline for step 2 is October the 25th. For more information click here.
