The Electoral College has previously appointed the following members:

  • Head of faculty office, Catrin Malmström, Faculty of Science
  • Senior lecturer Johan Östling, Department of History

The first task of the Recruitment Committee is to draw up a person specification for the new vice-chancellor. The term of office of Lund University’s current vice-chancellor Torbjörn von Schantz ends on 31 December 2020, with the new vice-chancellor subsequently taking on the role. Sylvia Schwaag Serger’s term of office as deputy vice-chancellor will also come to an end on the same date.
