Secretary general for medicine and health becomes vice chancellor of Linköping University
Jan-Ingvar Jönsson is leaving his position as secretary general for medicine and health at the Swedish Research Council to become the vice chancellor of Linköping University.
The university board of Linköping University has proposed to the Government to appoint Jan-Ingvar Jönsson as the university’s new vice chancellor, starting 1 July 2020. The Government will make a formal decision during this spring.
Jan-Ingvar Jönsson has been the Swedish Research Council’s secretary general for medicine and health since January 2016.
“Warm congratulations to Jan-Ingvar, it is great that he has been given the opportunity to take on this important task,” says Sven Stafström, Director General.
“Jan-Ingvar’s appointment means that we are now starting the recruitment of a new secretary general for medicine and health. We hope that the recruitment will be completed in good time before summer, and that the new secretary general can be in place at the beginning of autumn 2020.”
