Erik Allard, Ombudsman på Naturvetarna 2013-06-27To work as a postdoc at KI should be a valuable and rewarding experience, providing a significant career boost. For many postdocs it certainly is! However, far too many have feelings of being exploited, mistreated, taken for granted etc. Being a previous researcher myself, now working as Negotiator at Naturvetarna, I am determined to strive for improved working conditions for all postdocs at KI (and elsewhere). It is my firm conviction that the long term benefits for KI will be increased research output with improved quality, when all postdocs are properly recognized for the magnificent competence they provide!
