Foreign Adjunct Professors
The purpose of appointing Foreign Adjunct Professors (FAP) at Karolinska Institutet is to encourage knowledge exchange with teachers, researchers and universities worldwide. This form of appointment aims to facilitate scientific collaboration and to strengthen and enhancing the quality of teaching and research.
The Foreign Adjunct Professor (FAP) title and affiliation form were introduced at Karolinska Institutet (KI) in 1992 by the former Medical Faculty Board. As from 1 July 2020 new regulations apply to this appointment, which replaces older regulations (dnr 4820/06/600).
Process and qualifications
A proposal for appointing someone as FAP should be submitted by the Head of Department to the Research Committee at KI. In order to be appointed as FAP, the teacher or researcher must be affiliated to KI, but have his or her main employment somewhere else than at the university. There is no financial compensation for this type of appointment.
Teachers or researchers who are appointed FAP are expected to have excellent scientific qualifications, as well as being internationally recognised and leading in their research field, equivalent to what is required for a permanent position as full professor at KI. It is the proposing Head of Department who has the responsibility to assess the qualifications of the FAP candidate. The Research Committee will then decide if the level of qualifications live up to the standard of the FAP title.
The appointment period is no more than three years at a time. The appointment can, however, be renewed on proposal of the Head of Department, who also has the power to terminate the appointment in advance. For more information about the process of appointment, required qualifications, proposal presentation and nomination form, please view under "Documents" further down on this page.
