Senior lecturer in Information Systems with emphasis on development and evaluation of web systems

Karlstad University takes pride in combining active external cooperation with academic excellence. Karlstad University has around 16 000 students and a staff of over 1 200 members.

Democratic principles, equality and diversity are cornerstones of the University. We value the enriching presence of diverse backgrounds and competencies among students and staff.

Description

Karlstad Business School at Karlstad University, established in 2009, comprises the subjects working life science, business administration, information systems, jurisprudence, economics, project management and statistics. Degree programmes and courses are offered at all levels and supported by strong disciplinary research as well as multidisciplinary research in several groups, notably the excellent research group CTF, Service Research Center (www.ctf.kau.se) designated by the university board. Karlstad Business School has many established national and international networks providing opportunities for new research projects and commissioned projects.

Modern web development requires knowledge and skills in traditional information systems as well as new technologies. Information Systems at Karlstad University takes, for instance, an interest in developing and evaluating digital services and systems, virtual tools, API management/integration as well as process oriented analysis, database design for web solutions, web analysis and interaction design (www.kau.se/en/information-systems). Karlstad Business School is now seeking a senior lecturer in information systems with emphasis on development and evaluation of web systems.

Duties

Duties include teaching and development at all levels, and supervising degree projects. We are looking for a good pedagogue who is willing to contribute actively to the development of Karlstad Business School. Duties include research to the extent made possible by available resources. The senior lecturer is expected to actively apply for external research funding and to contribute to expanding external contacts for the benefit of the Business School. Teaching duties mainly involve courses in information systems, but may include participation in other subjects. 

Qualification requirements

A PhD degree in Information Systems is a requirement, as are pedagogical skills and a completed course in higher education pedagogy, or equivalent qualifications. This course may, under certain conditions, be completed within two years of employment as part of the professional development commitment.

Applicants are expected to have conducted research in the field and have experience of web systems evaluation with regard to e.g. optimisation or usability.

Assessment criteria

Equal weight is given to research expertise and teaching skills.

Teaching skills are assessed on the basis of applicants’ ability to plan, conduct and evaluate teaching at all levels and to supervise and assess students. Considerable weight is given to applicants’ ability to take on undergraduate courses related to the area of web systems (e.g. process and service development, interaction design, user testing, web analysis, code testing, web development, programming, database design, modelling and integration). Courses are taught in Swedish and English, which is why ability to teach in both is a requirement. Applicants with no knowledge of Swedish are expected to handle student contacts in Swedish within two years. The University provides courses in Swedish.

Special weight is given to applicants’ ability to cooperate in international research groups, attract external research funding and develop external contacts. Considerable weight is given to personal qualities such as ability to cooperate, take initiatives and engage in activities.

Terms of employment

This is a full-time, non-fixed term employment with starting date at the earliest convenience.

Application

The application should include supporting documents of all qualifications and at least two references.  The applicant is responsible for submitting the documents required to ensure objective and qualitative assessment. 

The application should include:

  • verified CV
  • descriptive account of teaching and research activities
  • account of pedagogical philosophy
