Place and date for decision making

OYY's executive board meeting in March 2020

The position offers an excellent opportunity to participate in University decision-making and the development and quality assurance of doctoral training. The position demands responsibility, good interaction skills and motivation towards advocating doctoral students’ interests in University decision making. Student representatives also collaborate closely with the Doctoral Students’ Section by, for example, discussing topical issues of the administrative organs of the University in the Section’s meeting. The Doctoral Students’ Section seeks to influence the development of doctoral training and promote equal rights and well-being of doctoral students. The Section meetings are held approximately once in 1-2 months. Due to the timing of the additional call the term will be short, but it is possible to apply again in December and continue on the task.

The applicant must be a student of UniOGS, enrolled as active for the up-coming semester and a member of OYY. Finnish skills are considered an advantage but are not obligatory. The Student Union offers training for the task.

In your application, please explain in your own words what is the role of the Doctoral Students’ Section at the University of Oulu, why you should be selected for the position and what you would especially like to develop in doctoral training, the position of doctoral students and the activities of the Doctoral Students’ Section. Also mention what is your major in your studies and the stage of your doctoral studies.

The applications will be discussed in the meeting of the Doctoral Students’ Section. The meetings are open for all doctoral students and applicants are also welcome to join.
