As you know PhD candidates financed by the University of Bergen has a fourth year in which duty work for the university can be required. This work is currently managed by the institute and not by the individual supervisor. Information about the required duty work is sent to all candidates and supervisors before the PhD period starts. Candidates can be given tasks like K2Nytt editing, web editing, and teaching. The institute has received questions like “what if the department does not have any available work?” In that case it is accepted that the student and supervisor come to agreement about suitable tasks. A survey made by Kristian Jensen shows that many UiB fellows use part of their duty work time to teach. This is particularly true when it comes to medical PhD fellows. This is certainly accepted.
My name is Elin Netland Opheim, and this week I take over as editor of “K2Nytt”. I have been a PhD candidate since March 2013, working on the project “Monitoring of thromboelastography, platelet function and platelet recovery in hemato-oncologic patients with thrombocytopenia”. My work place is at the Department of Immunology and Transfusion Medicine in the Laboratory Building, and I can be contacted by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
