The PhD Reference Group

The PhD reference Group (Doktorandreferensgruppen) is a forum for all issues regarding PhD students at IFM.

We meet once a month and you are welcome to attend our meetings. Just contact us if you want to do so, and we'll let you know the time and place of our next meeting.

There are two seats for PhD student representatives at the Board of IFM and two at the Board of Graduate Education and we keep close contact with the representatives ‒ who usually (but not necessarily) are members of the PhD reference group as well. Furthermore, we are represented in the working group for equal opportunities. All these give us great means to make a difference!

Are you displeased with anything, or would like to highlight something that works very well? Do you have any questions or a suggestion of an issue for us to pursue? Would you like to know more about us, or would you like to join us and contribute to a good PhD student time at IFM?

You are most welcome to visit us at our meetings and/or contact us at phd-ref@lists.ifm.liu.se or personally (see e-mail addresses below).


Next meeting:

19 September, 2 pm, Röntgen
