I am the leader of SoDoC for 2017. My job is to work with the SoDoC board to direct the work of the organization. My main interests this year are to help establish SoDoC as an organization at NMBU dedicated to the interests and well-being of PhD and Postdoc students.
I am the SoDoC Campus Adamstuen committee leader. My role is to be a link between the PhD and (recently) Postdoc students of Adamstua, and organize the local SoDoC board (meetings, PhD events) on the veterinary campus with good help from the other board members.
I have 2 positions on the board in 2017. As the Academic committee representative, I plan and organise free courses, lectures and seminars for PhD students through SoDoc. This year we plan to have seminars on topics ranging from mental health and coping with stress to how “fake news” is effecting research. I also sit on the Universities ethics committee as the PhD student’s representative.
I am NOVA representative. NOVA is a university cooperation aimed at supporting the understanding of major global challenges in a Nordic context. Its main task is to initiate, administer, promote and financially support cooperation between the Nordic universities in postgraduate education.
I am the web master of SoDoC. Well, to be honest I am just an enthusiastic of technology and my programming/web designing skills are below basic. I was part of SoDoC board last year as NOVA representative but I could not take that position this year. “Web master” was a way to learn something new and contribute for SoDoC reaching PhD and Postdoc students’ interests
