The Department of Languages and Literatures is the Faculty of Arts' largest department with 13 different language subjects, around 150 staff members, a student volume of 1200 full-time equivalents and a yearly turnover of about SEK 120 million. The Department's research concerns the languages of the world and their literature from a broad cultural contextualisation and a wide spectrum of theoretical foundations and specific applications. These are concentrated around the following research profiles: Diversity and Universals in the Language; Popular Culture; Languages and Learning; and Transculturality, Translation and Transmission.

The position, which is a qualifying appointment, consists of both research (60 %) and teaching and some administrative work (40 %). In addition to independent research activities, the successful applicant will be expected to initiate new research projects in cooperation with researchers involved in the Department's interdisciplinary research profiles. The applicants must therefore indicate on their application how their own research can benefit further development of the established profiles at the Department. The successful applicant will be expected to actively seek research funding during the latter part of the appointment. The teaching assignments will consist of lectures, seminars and examinations, as well as supervision of students. The position may also include pedagogical development and cooperation within the Department's interdisciplinary programmes.
