Lyssna: Visstidsjobb för forskare – trots fackets protester

Radio clip in Swedish aired during an Ekot newscast by Swedish public radio, Sveriges Radio, 18 May 2012. It says that, in Sweden, temporarily employed, "young" academic researchers will have the right to four year's of employment, in accordance with a decision by the Swedish minister for education Jan Björklund.

Umeå University responded in a press release, 24 May, to say the university's rules would be changed on 1 January 2013.

In follow-up, Umeå University vice chancellor Marianne Sommarin, taking over the Bio4Energy Board chairmanship from the autumn of 2012, expressed satisfaction at the proposed rules in the Swedish popular science magazine Curie.
