Thursday May 20th, the National Junior Faculty (NJF) and Sveriges universitetslärare och forskare (SULF) will hold a panel discussion about the current situation for junior academics in Sweden centered about the joint NJF-SULF report Uncertainty – a reality for junior researchers in Sweden that was recently published.
