Tekna NTNU and DION invites all PhD candidates, postdocs and others with a temporary employment at the NV Faculty to a free seminar. We will enlighten you on all the tips and tricks of being employed here at NTNU, the benefits and challenges.

Meld meg på


There will be time for discussion, and the seminar is open to everyone.


  • Working in Norway – how does the Norwegian Model work, and why are unions so important here?
  • How to be temporarily employed – does it differ from other employment? What are my rights? Can I negotiate my salary? A representative from Tekna will tell you some of what you need to know about working in Norway in general, and the university sector in specific.
  • DION – who are we and what can we do for you
  • Tekna NTNU – who are we and how can we help you

Light refreshments will be served. Please let us know if you have allergies.
