Meet our staff

There are various types of employments and titles at SLU, such as researcher, doctoral student, veterinary assistant, communications officer, etc. Below are interviews with a few staff members who talk about what it is like to work at SLU.


SLU Vice-Chancellor Maria Knutson Wedel has decided that SLU should join the European Charter for Researchers and Guidelines for the Recruitment of Researchers (EU Charter & Code). After an approval by the European Commission regarding the implementation of the Charter & Code, the university will receive the HR Excellence in Research Award.  It is a certification that shows, among other things, that a higher education institution is an employer that applies fair and transparent recruitment and assessment procedures for researchers' employment and further career development and continuously improves working conditions and support for research staff.
