In terms of a paper being submitted for a journal publication, does being a junior author mean your name is second or just anywhere after the main author?

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.
