Propose candidates by 14 March #
The Board decides matters of principle significance to the strategic development of the university, adopts the accounts and budget, and shall oversee that the university's activities are conducted within the legal framework and guidelines given by the Parliament and the Ministry. As a member of the Board, you can make a difference and have real influence on the strategic development of NTNU.
Do you know someone who could do a good job on the NTNU Board? As a voter you may have influence not only as a voter, but also by proposing candidates to the elections. It is the voters who must propose the candidates, but ask if they are willing to do so first.
We need candidates of both gender and from all parts of the university. Candidates must have at least a 50 % position at NTNU which covers the elected term 1 August 2018 till 31 July 2019. However, a work contract till 30 June 2019 will suffice. The working language of the Board is Norwegian. Candidates must master Norwegian sufficiently to understand the documents and actively engage in the deliberations of the Board.
The Board is scheduled to meet 6 times the coming year (8 days). The members are compensated for the work (61 400 NOK/year + 10 200 NOK per full day they meet. Travel costs are remunerated). Temporary academic staff may convert the compensation to salary for a few extra months. PhD fellows are entitled to prolongation of their employment contract without salary for the time spent on Board duties.
Proposals must be signed by three temporary academic staff. Candidates should be asked if they are willing to stand for elections. Proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 14 March at 16.00 hours. Use the template which is linked up here.
The candidates will be presented to the voters the week before Easter.
