The network has administrative support allocated at 10%. The network also has a steering group consisting of Christian Giske, Ewa Ehrenborg, Catarina Almqvist Malmros, Rachel Fisher, Helena Karlström, Camilla Svensson and Alexandra Wennberg. As two of the academic leaders are now finishing their assignments, we are looking for a senior and a junior academic leader.

Skills and experience

You are employed at KI and well acquainted with the organisation, with an interest in issues related to values, gender equality and equality, and may have previously worked with gender equality or equality issues. We would prefer someone with a professorship as senior leader, and as a junior leader you should have defended a doctoral thesis.
