Södertörns högskola (Södertörn University) in south Stockholm is a dynamic institute of higher education with a unique profile and high academic standard. A large proportion of the university staff holds doctorates and there is a strong link between undergraduate education and research. Södertörn University has around 11 000 students and 840 employees. Undergraduate and postgraduate education and research are conducted in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Technology and Education. Our site is in Flemingsberg. Södertörn University is an equal opportunities employer.
English at Södertörn University is taught as a freestanding subject, but is also included in degree programmes such as MEG (Media, English and Globalisation) and especially the various Teacher Education programmes. We conduct teaching and research into the English language, and the linguistic area’s literature, society and cultural heritage. Proficiency training in English is integral to many of our courses, with language and culture largely being studied from a postcolonial and multicultural perspective.
As a senior lecturer, you will work actively on developing the subject’s fields of education and research. You may also work on applications for external research funding. Planning and teaching freestanding English courses is included in this position, though you will primarily work with the subject’s courses on the various Teacher Education programmes (from the MA in Primary Education – Pre-School and School Years 1–3 to the MA/Sc in Upper Secondary Education). Duties include planning and teaching the English courses on the Teacher Education programmes, where the main focus is on subject didactics and teaching that enhances language development. Course development, course coordination and other duties on the teaching team are important elements of your work. Collaboration with the surrounding community may also be part of this position. Teaching and administration in the subject are primarily conducted in English. If the successful applicant does not speak Swedish at the time of employment, we expect them to acquire basic skills so they can conduct some teaching and administrative work in Swedish. Managerial duties may be included in the position.
You are qualified for employment as a senior lecturer in English if you have demonstrated educational expertise and have been awarded a doctoral degree in English that specialises in linguistics, or have the equivalent research competence. You must have completed a course in teaching and learning in higher education worth at least 7.5 credits or have the equivalent competence, as well as having the personal skills necessary to do your job well and to represent the university in a way that benefits its activities. For this position, the applicant must be able to teach in English.
Research expertise is demonstrated through scholarly publications in the relevant subject area, participation in research projects, research collaborations, external collaborations, contributions to the development of the subject, and through assignments as an external expert, editor or similar.
Teaching expertise is demonstrated through high quality teaching of considerable scope, participation in educational development work, a self-reflective approach to students’ learning and experiences and your own role as teacher, initiatives in external collaboration, establishing links between research and higher education, and course development.
