The installation of newly appointed professors means that the professor is ceremoniously placed into office. The installation of professors is an important academic custom that exists at all universities in Sweden. It is also an opportunity to spread information on research as the professors’ areas of research are highlighted.

At this year’s Årshögtid, five new professors were appointed at the Faculty of Science and Technology:

Mattias Alenius, Department of Molecular Biology

Patrik Andersson, Department of Chemistry

Matthew Francis, Department of Molecular Biology

Christina Ottander, Department of Science and Mathematics Education
