Advice for doctoral supervisors

The purpose of this website is to draw attention to situations that doctoral supervisors may encounter. Given that there are a large number of doctoral candidates at the University of Gothenburg, and that major resources are expended in educating new post-graduate students, it is extremely important that this process functions smoothly.

Being a doctoral supervisor involves a responsibility to support a doctoral candidate in his or her actual thesis work, but it also involves having a long-term personal relationship with the candidate.

After analysing interviews with 17 supervisors and 17 doctoral candidates in all of the faculties that make up the University of Gothenburg, we have created scenarios from the perspectives of both supervisor and doctoral candidate. These scenarios delineate key issues having to do primarily with the supervisor/doctoral candidate relationship.
