Dear colleagues, fellow PhD students – it’s time to nominate your supervisors to the honorable prize: β€œSupervisor of the Yearβ€œ 2019/2020!

You must have by now seen the flyers hanging somewhere in your departments.

The SoTY is a revered academic merit which acknowledges a supervisor at Chalmers, who has shown excellent supervision qualities and a large concern towards his/her PhD students. It will be awarded by the Rector at the promotion ceremony in spring 2020.

  • If you think that your supervisor deserves the prize, send us their name together with a motivation letter (about 2000 words).
  • Please include all members of the group (current and PhD students who graduated less than a year ago) standing for the nomination.
  • Notice that the supervisor you nominate does not have do be your main supervisor.

Nominations are open from November 5 to December 19, 2019.
Send them to:

After the deadline, all nominations will be reviewed by the Doctoral Student Guild Committee, as specified in the flyer. 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.
