Some principles of office allocation in the department


Emeriti with emeriti contract and activities at the department will have the use of a shared office.

New PhDs

PhD students who have recently defended their thesis may have the use of their office for six months following the thesis defence. Thus they get a chance to write a postdoc application and get unpublished parts of the thesis ready for publication.

Outgoing postdocs

Outgoing postdocs empty and clean their offices before they leave for their postdoc stay. If they need a new office when they return, they will have one.

Incoming postdocs

When incoming postdocs’ employments are ended they will be offered a place in a large shared office.

Short time researchers

Short-time researchers will have a place in a large office with up to six work areas.

Master students

If there is room in an office with six work areas; master students may have a temporary work area until it is needed.

In general

Use the 15 m2 offices better than today. These offices are suitable for three postdocs or PhD students. Now they are often used by one senior researcher.
