Description and work duties
The ability to teach in Swedish (or another Scandinavian language) is a requirement for the position as a senior university lecturer.
Research expertise should have been demonstrated by independent research production. The criteria for assessing research expertise are:
• Breadth and depth of research - quality and scope
Educational expertise shall have been demonstrated through documented experience of teaching on a research basis within higher education. The criteria for assessing educational expertise are:
• An ability to plan, implement and evaluate teaching and an ability to supervise and examine students at every level of education
These skills can be obtained through higher education teacher training, other training relevant to teaching within higher education and/or documented, proven experience of teaching in higher education.
Weighing the evaluation criteria against each other
In the assessment of the research expertise, particular importance will be given to research competence within the core areas of philosophy, in particular history of philosophy, epistemology, logic, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language and ethics, including metaethics.
A substantial part of teaching is focused on the following areas: history of philosophy, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind and philosophy of language. Teaching skills within a wide range of these areas will be considered a significant merit.
The planning and execution of teaching and examination is largely carried out in teams of lecturers. It is therefore important that the candidate have a good ability to work with others.
The qualification and evaluation criteria are available at: Appointments procedure for teachers at Umeå University.
Your application is to be submitted through Umeå University’s electronic recruitment system Varbi no later than the January 7, 2020.
