Junior Faculty Club

The Junior Faculty Club (JFC) represents the interests of early-stage academics at the University of Cologne and its affiliated institutions, providing a platform for exchange and information. All postdoctoral researchers and non-tenured junior staff striving for a permanent (or tenured) professorship and based at the University of Cologne or a member institution of the Research Alliance Cologne are eligible to join.

The JFC provides funding for conferences organized by its members and offers a wide range of services, including career counseling and workshops tailored to help meet the challenges that junior faculty faces.

The board of the JFC consists of representatives of the University of Cologne's six Faculties.
