Re-distribution of funds for a visiting chair in Hedda Andersson’s name

The visiting chair in Hedda Andersson’s name stems from efforts to achieve a more equal gender distribution among Lund University’s professors. Even the fixed-time appointment of a visiting professor of the underrepresented gender can create a positive effect regarding gender equality. The symbolic significance of a visiting professor of the underrepresented gender sets an important example to the career prospects of students, doctoral students and teaching staff.

Faculties/equivalents at Lund University can apply for a maximum of SEK 2 million of re-distributed funds for the appointment of a proposed visiting professor.

Apply by 26 January 2018 at the latest.

Next call for applications

Due to the low number of applications, the re-distribution of funds for the appointment of a visiting chair in Hedda Andersson’s name will be evaluated. Information on any changes in the application procedure will be issued in the spring of 2018.
