Dear colleagues, fellow PhD students – it’s time to nominate your supervisors to the honorable prize: “Supervisor of the Year“.

The prize is a fine academic merit and it will be awarded by the rector at the promotion ceremony in May, 2017. It acknowledges a supervisor at Chalmers, who has shown excellent supervision qualities and a large concern towards his/her PhD students.

  • If you think that your supervisor deserves the prize, send us his/her name together with a motivation letter (between 1 and 3 pages).
  • Please include all members of the group (current and PhD students who graduated less than a year ago) standing for the nomination.
  • Remember that the prize is assigned to main supervisors, but if he/she co-supervises other students, they can be included in the application.

Nominations are open from October 17 to November 28, 2016.
Send them to:

After the deadline all nominations will be reviewed by the Doctoral Student Guild Committee. The PhD students of candidates selected in a systematic process will be interviewed. The Committee will then recommend the competitively chosen supervisor to the rector for the Award.
