The holder is expected to conduct teaching, supervision and examination at the undergraduate, advanced and (if necessary) doctoral levels. The department is looking for a person with a wide teaching experience within the subject of Spanish and with a research focus within one of the above-mentioned leading research areas. Furthermore, the department has a strong need to strengthen the competence in management and administration.

The holder is also expected to contribute to the development of new courses across the subject boundaries within the main area of Romance languages.

Eligible applicants for the position are those who have demonstrated and documented pedagogical skills (mainly at university level) within the subject and have paid a doctorate in Spanish (or equivalent foreign degree). Documented very good skills in spoken and written Spanish at a high scientific level is required. Holders who do not master Swedish or other Nordic languages should be able to document such skills in English as are required for the collaboration within the department, faculty, university and society as a whole. The applicant must have the ability to collaborate as well as the ability and suitability otherwise required to fulfill the duties well.

In the appointment of qualified applicants, special emphasis is placed on pedagogical and administrative skills, as well as strong emphasis on scientific skills. When assessing the pedagogical skills, special emphasis will be placed on planning, implementation, development, research basis and evaluation of teaching and supervision and examination at the undergraduate and advanced level in the subject of Spanish. Experience in teaching, supervision and examination in postgraduate education is an advantage. When assessing the administrative skills, special emphasis will be placed on experience as a director of studies or equivalent and management experience. The scientific skills must have been demonstrated through the results of their own research in the relevant research area. The skills must be well documented in a way that makes it possible to assess the quality of both the pedagogical, the administrative and the scientific activities. Furthermore, applicants must demonstrate documented good collaborative skills as well as the ability to interact with the surrounding society, nationally and internationally, the ability to inform about research and development work, and the ability to initiate and implement national and international research collaborations. Merit is also documented competence in other Romance languages offered at the department (French, Italian, Portuguese).
