Vitenskapelig kommunikasjon – publisering og allmennrettet formidling/Communicating science – in journals and to the general public

See below for information in English

Trenger du hjelp til å skrive bedre vitenskapelige artikler? Kan du også tenke deg å få resultatene dine presentert i Aftenposten og NRK? 

Vi gir deg verktøyene som åpner dørene både til vitenskapelige tidsskrifter og til avisredaksjoner. «Vitenskapelig kommunikasjon – publisering og allmennrettet formidling» ble tilbudt som et pilotemne høsten 2014. Det var en stor suksess, og blir nå et fast tilbud til doktorgradsstudenter, utenom Det medisinske fakultet (DMF). Der utdanner de superhelter i forskningskommunikasjon!

Emnet HFEL8000 arrangeres i august og september, uke 36 og 39.

Kurset gir en innføring i både skriving og publisering av vitenskapelige artikler og presentasjon av forskning til et bredere publikum. Her får du effektiv trening både i vitenskapelig og populærvitenskapelig formidling.

Virker dette interessant?

Suggested changes to the Act relating to Universities and University Colleges

Øyvind Storesund Hetland web2

DION President Øyvind Storesund Hetland was interviewed by Universitetsavisa about the Minister of Educations suggested changes to the Act relating to Universities and University Colleges. For your convenience we provide a summary in English below:

According to the Civil Service Act a Civil Servant that has served in a temporary position for more than four years, or in a permanent position for more than two years is entitled to what is known as “strong employment protection”.  Up until now this has the effect that if a PhD candidate is employed in a short term temporary position immediately after finishing the PhD, he or she will be entitled to permanent employment with the University or the University College. This fact makes it impossible for institutions to keep their candidates after they finish the PhD unless they have a permanent position to offer, and the PhD candidates are forced to look to other institutions if they are seeking a career in academia.

The suggested changes to the Act relating to Universities and University Colleges enables the Ministry of Education and Research to determine in a regulation whether or not (or how much of) the time spent as a PhD candidate will be counted in the “four year rule” of the Civil Cervants Act.

“The suggestion contains both pros and cons. The universities need reasonable possibilities to use temporary positions for temporary needs. At the same time we agree with Forskerforbundet: This may lead to an increase in the amount of temporary positions.” says DION President Øyvind Storesund Hetland.

DiON will work together with SiN with this hearing. Input from doctoral candidates or other temporary scientific staff at NTNU will be greatly appreciated.
