I'm not sure about junior author, but I know that I am co-author on a few publications. Maybe junior author means anyone other than the lead investigator.

Senior author refers to the PI's (Principal Investigators) that contributed to the paper. These names are found at the end of the paper. The last name on a paper is the PI, but sometimes it can be the last two or last three if there is a collaborative effort between two or three labs. Everyone else is a junior author.

My co-authored pubs have my PI first, not last. But as for junior author, no clue.
