In the appointment, special emphasis is placed on scientific skills and strong emphasis on pedagogical skills. As a professor of the subject, great importance is also attached to a broad linguistic competence in both research and education in Spanish. Emphasis is also given to administrative skills, including demonstrated leadership skills, and the ability to interact with the surrounding society, the ability to inform about research and development work and to have successfully planned, applied for and received grants for research projects from external funders. Successful supervision of essays and dissertations is considered part of the pedagogical and scientific skills. Merit is also documented competence in other Romance languages offered at the department (French, Italian, Portuguese).
