Royal Institute of Technology, School of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health

KTH is one of Europe's leading technical universities and an important arena for knowledge development. As Sweden's largest university for technical research and education, we bring together students, researchers and faculty from all over the world. Our research and education encompasses both science and all branches of technology as well as architecture, industrial economics, social planning, history and philosophy.


KTH is now seeking to strengthen two accounting economists for the economics unit at the School of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health. The unit belongs to the school's operational support, which consists of five administrative units; economy, infrastructure, communication and education. The school as a whole has about 850 employees and a total of about 80 people work within the business support. At the financial unit we have 17 employees working in Flemingsberg, Solna, Valhallavägen and AlbaNova. The location for these services is on the Valhallavägen campus but when you will work for some of our research groups operating at Albanova and in Solna you will work on site there if necessary.
KTH takes care of its employees and you are welcomed to a workplace with good benefits, secure employment and the opportunity for flexible working hours.

In your role as an accounting economist, you will manage the project accounting for some of the school's research groups and have close contact with the prefects, department heads and project managers and support them with financial support in their contacts with internal and external financiers. You report directly to the school's finance officer and participate in most of the existing duties at our finance department, such as:

  • Project accounting and project management
  • Support for researchers with financial backing in their contacts with internal and external financiers
  • Reporting to financiers
  • Resultatuppföljning
  • Ongoing accounting
  • Budget and year-end work

You will also participate in the development of the business unit's routines and working methods with your colleagues. For the right person, there is the opportunity to be offered a supervisor role for a group of economists in the finance department.

We are looking for you who meet the following qualifications:

  • MBA or other education and experience that we consider equivalent
  • Good ability to express yourself in Swedish and English in speech as well as in writing
  • Good knowledge of Excel

It is a merit if you have experience of work in government accounting, with the benefit of university or college. If you have experience in EU project reporting and previously worked in Unit4 / Agresso, this is also considered beneficial.

Personal qualities
In order to succeed and thrive in the role, you see good service as a natural element of your work. You have the ability to communicate your message to other employees in an easily understandable and clear way. Furthermore, you are structured and organize your work in an efficient way and have the ability to prioritize between different tasks. You are self-employed and take responsibility for ensuring that your work is performed accurately and qualitatively according to set time frames.

We will place great emphasis on personal fitness.

Trade union representatives
You will find contact information for trade union representatives on KTH's website . 

You apply through KTH's recruitment system. As an applicant, you have the primary responsibility for your application being complete when it is submitted. Your complete application must be submitted to KTH no later than the last day of the application period.

Interviews are ongoing, but no decision will be made before the deadline for applications has passed.

The employment starts with six months probationary employment.

Gender equality, diversity and distance from all forms of discrimination are both a quality issue and an obvious part of KTH's core values .
