Requirements of co-supervisors
PhD students must have one primary co-supervisor. Furthermore, it is possible to attach an unrestricted number of other co-supervisors to the PhD project.
- The primary co-supervisor must be at an academic level corresponding to associate professor. Documentation of the academic level must be provided in the enrolment application.
- The primary co-supervisor must be able to document experience with supervision of PhD students.
- In some cases the primary co-supervisor is more involved in the PhD student’s research project than the principal supervisor. However, it is always the principal supervisor who holds the full project responsibility.
- If the PhD student is in doubt whether the intended primary co-supervisor meets the requirements, the PhD student can have an assessment made before applying for enrolment. To do so, please email the intended primary co-supervisor's CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other co-supervisors must;
- Possess qualifications within the scientific area in question in order to contribute to the PhD project and help the PhD student with the research.
- Offer regular supervision and guidance to the PhD student - at least twice a year.
- Participate in the regular assessments of the PhD student’s study programme.
- Be available for the PhD student during the writing of the PhD thesis.
