The School of Humanities and Media Studies is looking to recruit a Senior Lecturer in English, Specialisation Linguistics, to join its English Department. Dalarna University has twelve language departments that teach most of their courses online, net-based teaching being a feature of the University for which it is nationally recognised. Broad in scope, the English Department offers Master’s programmes in linguistics and literary studies; teacher education programmes at all levels; courses in English for Specific Purposes; and preparatory academic courses. It also offers a large number of free-standing courses. The English Department is active and dynamic within research in the areas of linguistics, literature and didactics. Now, as a result of its popular and relatively new Master’s Programme in Applied Linguistics, there is a need to expand on departmental expertise through the recruitment of a Senior Lecturer.

The skills you bring with you will be important for developments within the subject in relation to the following:

- Teaching at the Master’s level in the relevant disciplines of Applied Linguistics
- Related administrative duties

It is important that you have expertise that will help develop teaching within the subject. For example, we currently have a course in the Master’s Programme that we plan to develop with a suitable specialisation. As well, we have a great deal of collaboration with external stakeholders through two university centres: the Centre for Educational Development (PUD) in relation to teacher education; and Dalarna’s Centre for Intercultural Research and Development (IKUD), which involves close work with the humanities and social sciences.
