The Appointments Board has five members. The Faculty Board appoints four members and three deputies, while a member and a deputy are appointed by the student union LinTek. The Dean usually acts as chairman of the Appointments Board. A union representative is allowed to attend and speak at the Board's deliberations. The Head of Department is invited to the Board's processing of recruitments related to his/her department.
