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' and other 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.
