EMV Newsletter June/July

madeleine durbeej hjalt

Dear EMV members,
The weather in May has been fantastic! Let’s hope it stays the same in July when we have a less hectic schedule!

We have had the second EMV board meeting and a protocol will be found here soon. Briefly, the board decided about positions that will be requested from the Faculty (for 2019). The Dean has identified strategic development areas for each department and EMV has been given the task to increase competence and coordination related to Max IV and ESS. Therefore, we will request a position in molecular imaging (or very similar).

Another very interesting duty given by the Dean is to enhance EMV:s collaboration with clinical specialties. Thus, we will look into the possibility of recruiting adjunct professors/associate professors from the University hospital. If you have collaborators at the hospital (without faculty positions) that are suitable for such positions, please let me know!

The management group is in the midst of having staff and salary appraisals with group leaders and I hope that all employees have had/will have similar. Also, salary setting appraisals (for SACO-members) will be given in fall.

Finally, I hope to see you all at the strawberry feast June 20!
