In addition, administrative skills, leadership and cooperative abilities are of importance. Applicants' ability to promote contact with the world outside the university and to spread information about research will also be considered.

More information can be obtained by contacting the head of the Department of Linguistics, Christna Hellman, tel. +46-8-16 2335 or by email:

Union representatives are Bo Ekengren (SACO-rådet), Lars Åke Säll (ST-ATF) and Birgitta Carlén (SEKO) (all at tel. +46-8-162000)

- a short description in English (no more than five pages) of the applicant's experience in research, education, administration (including project development and staff management). The applicant should indicate which results and qualifications he or she considers to be of particular relevance. Applicants should acquaint themselves with the University's employment policy and principles for the evaluation of pedagogical qualifications of teachers (, or by contacting the administrative official mentioned above).
- one set of those scientific works (numbered according to the list of publications), which the applicant considers to be of primary relevance to the application.
