The department of Economics in The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg is seeking to fill 1-2 positions for Associate senior lecturers in Economics.
These positions will involve 50% teaching at undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels and 50% research. This research is expected to fit in with the research taking place at the Department; see the Department's website at http://www.economics.gu.se for more information. It is also assumed that applicants will actively seek external research funding.
Anyone who has completed a doctorate in economics or similar may be employed as an Associate senior lecturer in economics. Applicants should have completed their doctorate no more than six years before the end of the application period. Applicants who have completed their doctorate sooner will be considered if there are special reasons for doing so (1.2.1. Appointments procedure at GU E 5 4898/10).
Grounds for assessment:
In making the appointment, special emphasis will be placed on academic and pedagogical ability in equal measure. Research skills within the profile areas of the Department are considered an additional qualification. Applicants must be able to teach in English and have an excellent ability to manage their teaching. Cooperation skills, ability to cooperate with the surrounding society and ability to apply and get external research funding will also be taken into consideration when making the appointment.
The appointments are full-time positions, with a time limit of two years. At the end of this time, there will be an opportunity for promotion to senior lecturer if the successful candidate is authorised to accept such a position and is also deemed suitable for this through appraisal in accordance with the grounds for assessment laid down by the university for employment in the position of senior lecturer (4.2. Appointments procedure at GU E 5 4898/10).
The salary will be set specifically for the individual. The university promotes equality and diversity. Most of the lecturers at the Department of Economics are male, and so we would be very pleased to receive applications from women.
