Those seeking appointment as an unsalaried docent must apply for it. 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 MH.

Application and decision process

An academic appointment committee 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 a non-salaried docent or to reject the application.
