"In addition to temporary residence permits for four years, an employment contract of at least 18 months is now required from the time the Swedish Migration Board has made its decision.

In any case, the Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson (S) thought so, who gave the following comment to TT after loud criticism from the industry: "If you want a doctoral student to be able to get a permanent residence permit, you can hire him or her for 18 months from now on."
Everyone with insight into the academic world knows that this is not the reality. Permanent employment simply does not exist for young researchers."Read the article here.
