Chairs

General information on calls for application:

On 26 August 2015, the SFU’s Rectorate established a founding commission responsible for appointing the chairs of the Faculty of Medicine and structuring them into interdisciplinary centers. Calls for application follow the sequence of the subjects in the curriculum.
Combining chairs in interdisciplinary centers aims at sustainably anchoring the cooperation in research and teaching also into internal structures.
