The course is often referred to as the “Professor and Docent class” and participation is cross-faculty. There are three sessions throughout the academic year and the aim is to raise awareness of the competencies, experiences and relevant documentation required to apply for promotion.
The first session provides information on relevant national regulations and guidelines. Sessions two and three provide an opportunity for the participants to develop the three documents that support the application for promotion: Academic CV, Profile Document and Pedagogical File, along with a timeframe for progression. Session one is open to all academics (you must register to attend, see below).
Sessions two and three are limited to academics with a PhD and additional research and development experience, normally developed over a minimum 4-year period since completion of the PhD. This is to ensure that there is sufficient academic experience and competency that can be reflected and evidenced.
Please note that to qualify for the “akselerasjonsstipend” and “satsningsstipend” grants, you must have completed the full course (all three sessions). To qualify for the “unge forskertalenter” grant, you must have attended session one.
The course leader will evaluate the academic profile of each participant and share a report with their line manager and Pro-Rector for Research. The line manager will follow up individually and may, if relevant, offer the support of a mentor.
