Duties: A lecturer’s duties include teaching, research, clinical work and administrative tasks. Teaching involves course management/course administration, lectures, seminars, supervision of students’ theses and examinations. The position also include monitoring developments in the appointee’s own subject and those in society at large that have a bearing on the work.
Eligibility requirements: Under the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance, to be eligible for a senior lecturer appointment, the candidate must have demonstrated skill as an educator and obtained a doctorate, or possess corresponding academic proficiency or some other professional expertise with a bearing on the position, in terms of its subject content and the duties it includes. Under Uppsala University’s Appointment Regulations, eligibility for a senior lecturer appointment requires the candidate to have completed ten weeks’ teacher training relevant to work at the University or to have acquired corresponding knowledge. If special reasons apply, this academic teacher training may be completed during the first two years of the position. Under the Appointment Regulations for Uppsala University, another general eligibility requirement for teachers is that they must have the personal characteristics required to perform the duties of the post well.
To be eligible for this position, the applicant must be licenced physician with a specialisation in peadiatrics. The applicant must already be a licensed paediatrician or must have applied to the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare to become a licensed paediatrican no later than the date of submission of this application. The applicant must have obtained a Swedish paediatrics licence no later than the date of employment decision.

Assessment Criteria: When selecting from the eligible applicants, weight will be assigned primarily to both research and teaching expertise, which are considered equally important.
In assessing research expertise research quality within the field of paediatrics will be the prime consideration. The scope of research, primarily with regard to depth and breadth, will also be afforded consideration. Furthermore, consideration will be given to the capacity to plan, initiate, lead and develop research and education in the third cycle, the ability to acquire funding for research in competition, as well as the demonstrated capacity to interact with others both within academia and in the wider community.
In assessing teaching expertise teaching quality will be the prime consideration. The scope of teaching experience, in tems of both breadth and depth, will also be afforded consideration. Furthermore, consideration will be given to the capacity to plan, initiate, lead, and develop teaching and instruction, as well as the ability to connect research to teaching with respect to research in the subject at hand, subject didactics, as well as teaching and learning in higher education. Ability concerning issues of teaching and learning in higher education with actors within and outside the University is also included in teaching expertise.
Clinical expertise is demonstrated through clinical work and clinical training, as well as participation in clinical developmental work. Among other things, clinical developmental work involves efforts to improve or rationalise health care and medical care. Preference will be given to applicants with a certified or otherwise confirmed expertise in one of the paediatric subspecialities.
When the University appoints new teachers those applicants must be selected who, following a qualitative holistic assessment of their competence and expertise, are judged to have the best potential to carry out and develop the relevant duties and to help advance operations.
Assessment criteria; other proficiency: Administrative and management expertise are important for the employment and will be given weight. The ability to collaborate and interact with the surrounding community and to provide information on research and development will also be considered. Please see further Appointment Regulations for Uppsala University §§28-31 and Guidelines and Assessment Criteria §§9-10.
Administrative expertise is demonstrated, for example, through the capacity to plan, organise, and prioritise work in an efficient and task-related manner as well as through the ability to assign and observe time frames. Expertise includes overall operational planning and the capacity to manage resources in a way that reflects operational priorities as well as the ability to work in a structured manner based on an awareness of goals and quality.
Management expertise is demonstrated through the capacity to lead operations and personnel, make decisions, take responsibility, and motivate others, providing them with what is needed for the efficient achievement of common goals. The abilities to coordinate the group and help create a sense of involvement, participation, and enjoyment in work and to deal with conflicts constitute further examples of demonstrated expertise.
