The new salary contract for doctoral candidates is now official and published on insidan.
The most important changes from the previous contract are:
• Salary increase with 2.5%.
• It is stressed that the negotiated salaries are minimum salaries.
• Salaries for PhD candidates can also be negotiated individually.
• If a licentiate degree is delayed due to Chalmers administration, retroactive salary increase for the inte
rmediate time should take effect.
• If the employer has accepted part-time work, the time limit for the PhD-candidate period should be prolonged with the corresponding amount of time.
• The employer stresses that the individual study plan should be designed so licentiate degree is reached after 50% of the PhD-candidate period.
• The employer and the trade unions will together analyze the PhD-salary ladders at different universities in Sweden. This analysis will serve as a basis for the negotiations in 2016.
