Application & Eligibility
How do I become a member?
There are two ways of becoming a Digital Futures faculty member
Alternative 1, if you are
- a member of the Digital Futures Governing Board (GB), Executive Committee (EC), Industrial & Societal Board (ISB), Industrial Committee (IC) or Societal Committee (SC) with a faculty position,
- an ICT TNG faculty member, or
- a PI or co-PI for a project funded by Digital Futures, then you are implicitly a faculty member if you meet the eligibility criteria (see below). However, we still need your formal application if you want to be an official Digital Futures faculty member. Suppose a researcher who is not a Digital Futures faculty member assumes one of the roles above (e.g., by getting a Digital Futures grant). In that case, the researcher automatically becomes a faculty member according to the above.
Alternative 2, anyone who is eligible (read section Eligibility further down the page) can
- Fill in an application form with the following information:
- why you would like to become a Digital Futures faculty member
- what you think that you can contribute with and attach your CV
- The Digital Futures Executive Committee (EC) will discuss the application at the next EC meeting. The main evaluation criteria are: (i) that the applicant is an active researcher within the scope of Digital Futures, and (ii) that the motivation for contributions to Digital Futures is relevant.
- A response with the decision is sent back to the applicant by the operations team.
This lightweight process will, in the normal case, take at most a month.
The following positions/titles/roles are eligible to apply for Digital Futures faculty:
- Assistant Professor
- Associate Professor
- Full Professor
- Permanent full-time Researcher (”tillsvidareanställning”)
with a PhD degree and 80% employment or more at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, or RISE Research Institutes of Sweden (researchers employed by RISE Digital Systems Division in the Stockholm area).
