Lise Meitner Professorship
The Lise Meitner Professorship is an appointment in which a leading female researcher is nominated to work at the faculty as a visiting professor for a period of one to three years, and act as a role model for other women at LTH. The professorship was established on 1 January 1999.
Who is eligible?
The nominated candidate must be a professor at their own university, or fulfil the requirements for a professorship and have an employment with an external organisation. It is important that the nominee has the necessary attributes to actively participate in teaching at first, second and third-cycle levels, and in other activities at the host department. It is also desirable that the nominee takes part in lectures and seminars at both the host and other departments at LTH, as well as in internal and external faculty-wide activities. The appointment is a part time (20% of a full-time) fixed term position at LTH and can be held for a period of three years.
New recruitments to the Lise Meitner professorship are made on an annual basis since 2018, the invitation to nominate candidates for the professorship usually goes out to all departments at the end of each year.
