Summer is quickly approaching, and with it the next TNDR annual meeting. One of the main purposes of the annual meeting is to elect people to TNDR's board and all the representative positions that TNDR appoints.
In a an effort to increase the transparency of these elections and the interest among the PhD student corps, the TNDR board, on behalf of the election committee, is pleased to present a schematic summary of all positions that TNDR manages, including their main duties and, where applicable, their monetary or temporal compensation.
All positions are elected, and as such considered trustee positions.

If you are interested in any of the positions below you should get in touch with someone from the election committee.
If you have any inquiries, send e-mail to any of the election committee members. 

The board of TNDR consists of six positions, as per the current bylaws.

At the TekNat faculty, TNDR has monopoly on PhD student representation and elects representatives to several committees besides the faculty board itself.
Number of meetings are per semester, unless otherwise stated. Compensation is per academic year, unless otherwise stated.

Details about temporal compensation can be found in TEKNAT 2016/6 and UFV 2014/72. The resolutions determine the minimum compensation. The prolongation is paid by the faculty and must be applied for before finishing the PhD studies. For further questions, see contact details in the documents or ask the chair of TNDR.

**The Recruitment committee regular position can be shared by two people, each receiving 10% employment and 500 SEK per meeting they attend.  They should then split attending meetings equally, and may never attend the same meeting together. For the recruitment committee 500 SEK per meeting is only paid one time per year, in July the year after you started (but one month after the last meeting).

***The compensation length can be negotiated by the position-holder (keep track of amount of time spent, apply to the faculty board at the end of the year for compensation).

 

TNDR also elects representatives to a few other boards associated with the faculty.
