Future Faculty is an organization of researchers with a doctoral degree (PhD), who have not yet obtained a permanent/tenured position at the University. The aim of Future Faculty is to improve the conditions for young and future researchers at the Faculty of Medicine and to promote development of a career system at all levels. We offer activities, information and services for continuous career development and we provide support to postdocs and young researchers by organizing seminars, workshops and networking opportunities throughout the year.
