We are seeking a lecturer in Arabic 70-100%. This is a permanent position starting 01-08-13 or on an agreed date. A probationary period of six months applies. The position is based in Falun.

The degree of expertise required to be qualified for the position is used as a selection criterion when hiring a lecturer. In addition, the degree of administrative and other skills that are relevant for the subject requirements Högskolan sets for the position and the duties of the position are also relevant. The ability to develop and lead academic work and other members of staff at Högskolan will also be taken into account, plus the ability to cooperate with the region and inform others about research and development work. Pedagogical and academic skills will be given equal weight for this position. Objective grounds will also be taken into account, which follow the political goals for the job market, equality, society and employment.

Since our courses are taught using a communicative view of teaching, it is a requirement that the applicant is fluent or nearly fluent in MSA and has high written competence. Good knowledge of Arabic literature and ”i’rab” is of merit. Testified experience of teaching and course development at university level for both beginners and higher levels is sought after. A good knowledge of English and/or Swedish plus a good ability to cooperate are expected.
