Taking an active interest in Junior Faculty
Our most visible activity is the Junior Faculty seminar series, which typically takes place once per month, with seminars and workshops that are relevant to the skill development and career strategy of junior researchers. Webinar series are also organised in collaboration with National Junior Faculty of Sweden! follow the news!
In LiU-Junior Faculty, it is possible to get actively involved in working towards the aims (see About Junior Faculty). There are three instances in which one can get involved:
- Faculty-specific work groups - Here we work with questions and activities that are specific to the junior researchers of the faculties of LiU.
- Steering group - Here we work with university wide questions and interdisciplinary activities.
- Junior Faculty Office - This is where our administrative work is performed.
