Tenure-track assistant professorship in Spanish language with special responsibilities in foreign language acquisition and/or foreign language pedagogy

The Department of English, Germanic and Romance Studies, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Denmark, invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in foreign language acquisition and/or foreign language pedagogy, to be filled by 1st of January, 2015 (alternately 1st of August, 2015).

Job content
The applicant must document an active research profile in foreign language acquisition and/or foreign language pedagogy within Spanish as a foreign language.

A tenure-track assistant professorship is a six-year, fixed-term academic position involving research and teaching. The person appointed to the post will be obliged to complete a course in university teaching designed especially for assistant professors, and is expected to be able to take part in all the activities of the Department, including examinations and administration.

Approximately six months before the end of the six-year period as assistant professor, a committee set up by the Dean will assess if the assistant professor can be considered for promotion to a tenured position as associate professor.

Qualification requirements
Applicants must have a PhD degree or its equivalent within the area advertised. Furthermore, it will be considered an advantage if applicants can demonstrate teaching experience at university level.

The duties of the position are evenly distributed on tasks related to teaching and tasks related to research (including relevant administration and knowledge-sharing). Documented competences in both of these main fields of activity, as well as the ability to reflect on them, will be weighted in the assessment process.

Tenure-track assistant professors must hold an academic record demonstrating internationally competitive research, and/or have internationally recognized potential to make a future impact.

Assessment of applicants will primarily consider their level of documented, internationally competitive research. Teaching qualifications are not mandatory, but documented teaching qualifications and teaching experience will be taken into account. Applicants’ outreach qualifications, including the ability to attract external funding, will also be considered.
