About The Young Faculty Organization

The Stockholm University Young Faculty (SU-YF) organization has been established on February 1st 2018, and now it represents more than 500 members of postdoctoral fellows, researchers, senior researchers, assistant professors and young faculty members. The SU-YF aims to promote transparency, provide information and support all members for their career advancement. The mission of the SU-YF is to promote diversity and innovation across the campus, not only through interdisciplinary research activities at SU but also through enhancing the interpersonal skills of the SU-YF members so that they can navigate their career between academia and industry. The SU-YF will also provide a comprehensive program to facilitate the social interaction among the young academic members at Stockholm University and other sectors, towards the goal of building a strong community that can benefit from the exchange of knowledge, culture and experience. The SU-YF organization has recently joined the National Junior Faculty (NJF).
