The SSF Adjunct professor or adjunct lecturer program is supported by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) to facilitate researchers the opportunity to develop their research at the academy, and thus increase knowledge transfer and cross-fertilization between the sectors. Applications are open to highly qualified people employed in Swedish business, healthcare providers or government authorities who are seeking employment as either an adjunct professor or an adjunct lecturer at a Swedish university. The program funds correspond to approximately 10 percent of a part-time position as an adjunct professor or lecturer, over a period of three to six years. Since the scope of such a position is normally 20 percent, one day a week, co-financing is required for the remainder from the main employer. The researcher must conduct strategic research within one of the foundation’s areas; science, technology or medicine.
Applications close on January 16, 2024.
