Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Statistics

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 46.000 students, 7.300 employees and a turnover of SEK 7.3 billion.

Period of employment: The post of Associate Senior Lecturer may be held for up to four years with the possibility of promotion to Senior Lecturer.

Duties: Research and teaching within statistics. Teaching includes course coordination, supervision and course administration. Employment may also include administrative tasks. Teaching comprises up to 50 percent of the position.

Qualifications required: To be eligible for employment as an associate senior lecturer, applicants must hold a PhD or have achieved equivalent scientific expertise and must meet the requirements for teaching skills. Preferably, the applicant will have completed a PhD or achieved equivalent expertise no more than five years before the application deadline. The applicant should have completed five weeks of department-relevant teacher training at the higher education level, or be deemed to have equivalent knowledge.

Under Uppsala University's appointment regulations, it is also a general eligibility requirement that teachers possess the personal qualities necessary to capably perform the duties of the post.

Applicants must have the ability to teach in Swedish and English. Any appointee who is only proficient in one of these languages at the start of employment must be able to also teach in the other language within two years.

Assessment criteria: When selecting among eligible applicants, special emphasis will be placed on research expertise. Due to the nature of the post, as temporary employment with the potential for promotion to a permanent post, the applicant’s research and teaching qualifications will be assessed primarily in qualitative terms. An applicant’s quantitative advantage, i.e. an applicant who has been working for a longer period of time, will thus not be decisive.

Research expertise: Research expertise refers to research qualifications. In the assessment of research expertise, primary consideration will be given to research quality. Importance will also be given to the scope of research, in terms of both breadth and depth.

Teaching expertise: Teaching expertise will be assessed as carefully as research expertise. Teaching skills refer to educational and teaching qualifications, and teaching quality will be the prime consideration. The scope of teaching experience, in terms of both breadth and depth, will also be afforded consideration.

Administrative skills and other proficiencies are also significant to the post and will be given due weight. Administrative skills are demonstrated, among other things, through the ability to plan, organize and prioritize work effectively and in a purpose-adapted manner. Attention will also be given to the applicant’s ability to interact with both the scientific community and the community at large.

Additionally, special emphasis will be placed on the applicant’s potential to contribute to the future development of both research and education.

Qualifications should be documented so that both quality and scope can be assessed.

When Uppsala University appoints new teachers, the applicants selected are those who, following a qualitative total assessment of expertise and merits, are judged to have the best potential to carry out and develop the relevant duties and contribute to a positive development of the department.

The Recruitment Group may in this recruitment come to use interviews, trial-lectures and referrals. The applicant should therefore submit a list of referees with insight into the applicant’s professional skill as well as personal qualities that may be of relevance for the position, e.g. ability to cooperate, ability to lead and working methods.

Personal circumstances (such as full or part-time parental leave, trade union appointments, military service, or other) that may benefit the applicants in the assessment of qualifications should be included in the list of qualifications and experience (Curriculum Vitae).
