Welcome to Junior Faculty

Junior Faculty is an organization for junior researchers at Uppsala University. A 'junior researcher' is a person with a PhD, but without a permanent position. Members are e.g. assistant professors, associate professors, 'post-docs' andother scientists without a permanent faculty position.

The overall aim of Junior Faculty is to promote the career of junior scientists. To further this goal, we organize activities such as grant proposal workshops, career development seminars, and networking events.

For more information please see our Activities page.




Upcoming Activities

You’re invited to a seminar about the Young Academy of Sweden (Sveriges unga akademi, SUA) by Erik Ingelsson on Tuesday 16 September at BMC, C8:301 at 15.00.

Come and hear more about the Young Academy of Sweden, what they do to help the young research community and about different roads to science!

The Young Academy of Sweden is an independent, cross-disciplinary forum for some of the most promising young researchers in Sweden in all disciplines. The Academy was formed in 2011 at the initiative of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Young, in this context, is a scientist with a Ph.D. that was awarded less than ten years ago.

The Young Academy of Sweden consists of 40 members. The length of office is 5 years and therefore new members are elected every year. The criteria for election are scientific excellence and a proven interest in the matters handled by the Academy. All scientific disciplines are welcome into the Academy, but all will not be represented at each point. The Young Academy of Sweden strives to reach the broadest range of disciplines as possible.        

We hope to see you there!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the JF admin.
