Docentship at the HS faculty

The title of docent signifies a certain level of expertise. The holder has demonstrated autonomous research ability and teaching competency, and they possess a notably higher degree of research expertise than is required for a doctoral degree.

Normally, a docent is appointed in one of the subjects that are established as a main field of study or subjects offered at the doctoral level within HS. A list of those subjects is found at the bottom of this page.

Application and decision process

Those seeking appointment as an unsalaried docent must apply for it. An academic appointment committee (Lärarförslagskommittén) processes the docent application prior to a decision by the faculty board. This means that the committee first decides if an application fulfils the requirements, then forwards it for an external expert assessment. When the external expert’s report has been received, the committee gives their recommendation to the faculty board to either appoint the applicant as an unsalaried docent or to reject the application.
