The LTV nomination committee’s proposal for the election of a new faculty board

Published: 04 October 2021

The nomination committee has invited all LTV staff to nominate candidates, and has taken several factors into account (balance between subjects, gender, balance between continuity and renewal) when putting together the proposal that is now presented.

The nomination committee at the LTV faculty has the task to propose nine members/deputy members, including chair (dean) and vice chair (deputy dean) for the faculty board.

The nomination committee’s proposal

  • Chair and member, as well as dean: Christina Lunner Kolstrup, IMS
  • Vice chair and member, as well as deputy dean: Karl Lövrie, LAPF

Seven members/deputies:

  • Emma Butler1, SOL
  • Laura Grenville-Briggs Didymus, VSB
  • Mats Gyllin, IMS
  • Oleksiy Guzhva, BT
  • Åsa Lankinen2, VSB

1 due to conflict of interest, Andrew Butler has not been part in nomination committee’s discussions that led to suggesting Emma Butler as member/deputy.

2 Åsa Lankinen is also suggested as vice-dean for research education (appointed by the faculty board).
