Tuesday, 19 November 2019 Assoc. Prof. Ademir Hujdurović, PhD is the new Dean of UP FAMNIT

The Rector of the University of Primorska, Prof. Dragan Marušič, PhD confirmed Assoc. prof. Admiral Hujdurović as the new Dean of UP FAMNIT, who was elected in the early elections held on November 14, 2019.

The former vice-dean for International and inter-university cooperation at UP FAMNIT began his academic career nine years ago as a young researcher at UP IAM under the mentorship of Prof. Dragan Marušič, PhD. Then, in 2013, he completed his doctoral studies with the thesis “Algebraic Aspects of Graph Theory” and received the PhD title. A year ago he became the editor of the international scientific journal “Ars Mathematica Contemporanea”, which is the fifth most prestigious Slovenian scientific journal on the SCImago Journal & Country Rank for the fifth consecutive year. He also became the vice dean for international and inter-university cooperation of UP FAMNIT. Earlier this year, as a professor and researcher at UP FAMNIT and UP IAM, he received the 2018 Scientific Excellence Award in Natural Sciences and Engineering, and in May became an Associate Professor in Mathematics and a Senior Associate at UP.

In his application program, he wrote, "We will continue the development of our faculty in the direction set by my predecessors through excellent professional support from support services, hard work by members of Famnit's academic community, and proactive co-creation of the faculty by Famnit students."

An important place in his program of work is taken by research activity and student involvement in research projects, as well as the global involvement of the faculty and the spatial solutions at the faculty, which has greatly increased the number of students in recent years.

We sincerely congratulate the dean on his appointment and wish him a successful mandate!
