I am from Germany and coming to Karlstad to work on my doctoral thesis for the next 4 years. I am a professional in river ecology, so I will sometimes work at Karlstad University and sometimes work in the countryside for prolonged times. My employer Fiskevårdsteknik is actually situated in Lund (near Malmö) and from time to time I will be there as well.
I have a girlfriend (she is an expert in ecotoxicology) who is going to live with me in a year which is the reason I am currently searching for an apartment or a room for the next 12 months. I have no pets and I am not smoking, so all in all you get an uncomplicated tenant who is eager to learn and willing to help.
