Supervisor of the Year Award

Attention all doctoral students: the PhD Chapter is proud to launch the Supervisor of the Year Award!

Since 1985, THS has given out the “Teacher of the year” award at KTH to promote pedagogical development and spread good practice. The “Teacher of the Year” award celebrates the best teachers at KTH but has a clear focus on first and second-cycle education.

To promote good examples within third-cycle education, the Ph.D. Chapter has curated the “Supervisor of the Year” award since 2020, to be awarded to a doctoral-student supervisor. Similar awards have been given at various universities in Sweden, for example at Chalmers University and Luleå University. The academic year 20/21 is the inaugural year for this award.

A doctoral-student supervisor can be nominated for the “Supervisor of the Year” award by the said supervisor’s current student(s) or alumni or a group of current students and alumni. The alumni participation is restricted to nominating their previous supervisor up to a year after they defended their thesis/ended their doctoral studies.

If you have any questions, please get back to us at supervisor-award@dr.kth.se.
