Progress of Postdoctoral Lecture Qualifications

 

The Post-doctoral lecture qualification procedure is described below.

1. Persons wishing to obtain a post-doctoral lecture qualification from the Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering should inform the post-doctoral lecture qualification committee of their intention via the Dean in due time, that is at least six months prior to the application. The intention to obtain a post-doctoral lecture qualification will then be announced at the next post-doctoral lecture qualification committee meeting.

2. The application is made by submitting the post-doctoral lecture qualification thesis and the documents specified in section 4 of the Post-Doctoral Lecture Qualification Regulations to the Dean of the faculty.

3. At the next post-doctoral lecture qualification committee meeting, the Dean opens the post-doctoral lecture qualification process and the assessors are appointed. The Dean then requests them to provide their assessments. At least two external assessments and an internal assessment by the faculty itself must be obtained.

4. When the assessments have been received, they are submitted to the members of the post-doctoral lecture qualification committee. The period required to read these documents is two weeks during term time and six weeks during the semester break.

5. At the next meeting after the end of this period, the post-doctoral lecture qualification committee votes on whether to accept the thesis or not. The committee selects one of the three topics proposed by the application for the 45-minute public lecture with discussion, a maximum of 30 minutes.

6. The public lecture takes place within four weeks of the applicant receiving notification of the lecture topic from the Dean.

7. At the post-doctoral lecture qualification committee's next meeting, a final decision on the post-doctoral lecture qualification and the venia legendi is made.
