Junior Faculty at Karolinska Institutet
Junior Faculty is an interest organization of researchers with a PhD but not yet a permanent academic position as lecturer or professor.
Our aim is to promote development of a career system at all levels; through participation in KI boards and dialogue with KI leadership, funding agencies and government. In addition we provide support to junior faculty by organizing seminars, workshops and hearings.
