Career development for female associate professors

Are you keen to take the next step in your academic career? Engage in the initiatives UiO offers to female associate professors who consider seeking promotion to professorship!

Promotion seminar

Every spring, a half-day seminar with presentations from female professors and representatives from the University management and faculty level is offered. You'll also receive specific advice on existing requirements when applying for competence promotion to professor.

As soon as the 2018 date for the seminar has been set, it will be announced here.

Coaching groups

Join a coaching group to establish networks and get help and input to qualify for promotion! The groups consist of six to eight participants and have five meetings, each lasting three hours. The meetings follow a structured program and are led by consultants with experience in the university setting.

The upstart date for new groups has not yet been determined.

Qualifying grant 2018

Apply for grant funding for more time to qualify for promotion to a position as a professor! The amount is NOK 100.000 per grant and can be used to buy time off from teaching and administrative responsibilities. Important allocation criteria are the thematic priorities at your faculty and the evaluation of how much time you need to reach professor competence.

Application deadline: 2 April, 2018
