Foreign adjunct professors

The title "Foreign Adjunct Professor" was introduced in 1992 by the Faculty of Medicine at Karolinska Institutet. Since 1999 Foreign Adjunct Professors are appointed by the Board of Research at KI after proposals from the Recruitment Committee. The purpose is to strengthen the international collaboration with foreign research colleagues of good repute.
The connection to KI should consist of a long-term international co-operation/scientific exchange. The required qualifications are the same as those for adjunct professors. The period of appointment lasts for six years with a possibility of renewal of terms. The appointment does not include any financial commitment for KI. Foreign researchers who have been appointed MDhc or ODhc at KI are automatically awarded the title Foreign Adjunct Professor.
