Uppsala University hereby declares the following position to be open for application:
Associate professor/Senior Lecturer in Comparative Physiology (with the possibility of being employed as a Professor) at the Department of Physiology and Developmental Biology, Comparative Physiology.
Description of position: The research area includes studies on comparative physiology on animals using both physiological, proteomic and molecular techniques.
Nature of duties: The position includes teaching at graduate and undergraduate level, research, and administration. Teaching duties include course responsibility, course administration and supervising of Ph.D. students. Teaching will primarily be in animal physiology at basic and advanced levels, but may also include teaching on other biology courses at the basic level. It is expected that the successful applicant follows the developments in the area of research and in the surrounding community, which are of relevance for the position. It is also expected that the applicant will actively participate in developing the research and education profile of the Department and seek to attract external funding.
Eligibility: To be eligible for a position as associate professor, the applicant must hold a Ph.D and have completed suitable pedagogical training for teaching at university level or have corresponding qualifications and pedagogical skills. Uppsala University’s general employment regulations also require that teachers have any other skills which are necessary to carry out their duties proficiently.
The ability to teach in Swedish or English is a requirement. The successful candidate is expected to teach in Swedish within two years from appointment.
A person who is offered a position as associate professor/senior lecturer will be employed as professor if she/he has requested this and is subsequently judged to be sufficiently competent.
Ranking criteria: In ranking eligible candidates, equal importance will be given to scientific and teaching skills. When judging teaching skills, consideration will be given to experience and planning, carrying out and evaluating teaching and examinations, and supervising students. When judging scientific proficiency special importance will be attached to research qualifications in animal physiology in a broad sense and documented ability to study physiological processes using molecular, molecular genetic and protein chemical methods are of special merit.
Under the University Ordinance, those filling a position as lecturer must also have demonstrated the teaching ability required for the post and furthermore, except in special circumstances, must have completed a programme of training relevant for teaching within the University. Candidates' teaching competence including the planning, carrying out and evaluation of teaching and examinations, as well as the supervision of students, will be evaluated. Documentation of teaching skills must be presented in a way that allows qualitative assessment.
The candidate’s aptitude in interacting with the surrounding community, informing people about research and development work, and the degree to which the candidate possesses administrative and other relevant skills are also important.
In filling this position the university aims to recruit the person who, in the combined evaluation of competence, skills and documented qualifications, is judged most suitable to carry out and develop the work-in-hand and to contribute to a positive development of the department.
Personal circumstances that may be of positive relevance in merit evaluation, for example parental leave, should be mentioned in the list of qualifications (CV).
The university is striving for a more even gender balance in its research and teaching staff and women are especially invited to apply for this position.
An applicant who has not completed suitable pedagogical training for teaching at university level or has corresponding qualifications will be employed for a maximum of one year. If the associate professor/senior lecturer during this period of employment acquires pedagogical training for teaching at university level the employment will be permanent if the assistant professor/senior lecturer requests this.
