Manager :


The task of the UniOGS Management Group is to support the dean of UniOGS in leading and developing doctoral training and implementing the strategy of the University. The Management Group discusses e.g. the development of doctoral training processes, admission times and admission criteria and the amount of travel grants. Meetings are held approximately seven times per year. The doctoral researcher member of the management group is the Chair of OYY's Doctoral Researchers' Section and the deputy member the Vice Chair.

The chair directs the activities of the Doctoral Researchers’ Section of the Student Union at the University of Oulu according to its strategy and annual action plan. The Doctoral Researchers’ Section is the collective voice and community of doctoral researchers across disciplines. The Section watches over University decision-making and doctoral training practices, proactively advocates doctoral researchers' interests and well-being, and promotes doctoral researchers’ awareness of their rights and their ways of influencing University decision-making. The Section fosters a sense of belongingness and unity among doctoral researchers.

The Doctoral Researchers’ Section gathers approximately once a month to discuss doctoral researchers’ points of view concerning the development of doctoral training. The task of the student representatives is to take doctoral researchers’ proposals and opinions forward. The Section also organizes events for doctoral researchers.

The chair calls the meetings of the Doctoral Researchers’ Section, prepares the topics to be handled and leads the discussion. The chair is also responsible of the communications of the Section, the collaboration between doctoral researcher representatives and organizing events with other active doctoral researchers in the Section. The chair is the primary contact person towards doctoral researchers, the University and other stakeholders.
