Appointment of non-salaried docents

Docent is an academic title indicating the person has reached a scientific and teaching competency level clearly exceeding that which is required for a doctoral degree.

To be appointed as an non-salaried docent, an application is required. The application for docentship may be within those subjects which have been set up as a main field of study or third-cycle subject area at Örebro University.

Follow the links below to the respective faculty board's guidelines and application forms and information detailing to which faculty board a particular main field of study or third-cycle subject area belongs.

Drafting and decision process

Each faculty board has an academic appointment committee which drafts docent applications prior to a decision by the faculty board. This means that the committee first decides if an application fulfills the requirements to be forwarded for an external expert assessment. When the expert opinion has been received, the committee gives their suggestion to the faculty board to either appoint the applicant as an non-salaried docent or to reject the application.

The main fields of study or third-cycle subject areas per faculty board:

Faculty Board of Humanities and Social Sciences (HS)

Faculty Board of Business, Science and Engineering (ENT)

Faculty Board of Medicine and Health (MH)
