Position Description:    

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.

The Department of Engineering and Physics within the Faculty of Health, Science and Technology invites applications for a Senior lecturer position in theoretical condensed matter physics. All areas of condensed matter theory will be considered, including, but not limited to materials physics, electronic structure theory, topological phases of matter, mesoscale and nanoscale physics, soft condensed matter and computational physics. The successful candidate will be expected to develop outstanding research programs and contribute significantly to the service and educational activities of the department and University. As a new member of the growing research environment in materials science, comprising at present about 25 researchers, there are good opportunities for collaboration with researchers in materials physics, in areas such as metals, semiconductors, molecular materials, and nanostructures for optoelectronic and nanomechanical applications, and you will have access to significant research infrastructure with advanced spectroscopy and scanning probe microscopy techniques at the department.

The main duties: • Teaching and assessment in our physics and engineering programs, • Create, develop and manage education and courses, • Developing, leading and participating in research projects in condensed matter physics, including applications for research funding, • Participate in supervision of doctoral students in the PhD programme in Physics, • Collaborate nationally and internationally in research and education, Administrative tasks may occur.

Qualification requirements for the position: To be eligible for the position, a Ph.D. in Physics or a closely related field with a proven track record of scientific and professional accomplishment in condensed matter theory is required. Documented teaching expertise is required as well as a completed qualifying course in teaching in higher education or equivalent. In special circumstances, this course may be completed within two years of employment as part of the professional development commitment. A further requirement is excellent communication skills in written and spoken English.

Assessment criteria: Special weight will be given to demonstrated excellence and expertise in: • Independently, as well as in collaboration with others, developing and implementing research activities in condensed matter theory, in particular in any of the areas materials physics, electronic structure theory, topological phases of matter, mesoscale and nanoscale physics, soft condensed matter, and computational physics, • Attracting research funding, • Teaching and assessment in courses in higher education,

Considerable weight will be given to proven skills in: • Developing, conducting and managing education activities • Supervision of doctoral students • Collaborating nationally and internationally in research and education, • Cooperation and good interpersonal relations • Cooperate with others and create a good working environment among colleagues and students

Valuable qualifications are: • International experience, e.g post-doctoral experience

The position is full-time, non-fixed term employment with starting date in the later part of 2019 or by agreement.
