The new Stockholm University Institute for Turkish Studies is seeking a Senior Lecturer in the interdisciplinary field of Turkish Studies to participate in the management and coordination of the Institute’s activities. In addition to management, the responsibilities include teaching and research. The person holding the position should primarily lead and develop the Institute’s teaching activities in cooperation with the director of the Institute. Teaching duties may involve responsibility for first- and/or second-cycle courses on, for example, Turkey’s modern history and society. The position includes time for individual research, but the holder is also expected to seek external funding and should be prepared to take on various management tasks in cooperation with the director of the Institute.
Qualification requirements: In order to qualify for this position, the applicant must have demonstrated teaching skills and have a doctoral degree, or equivalent research expertise, in a field of relevance to the position within the humanities or social sciences. Both the doctoral thesis and other research should be focused on Turkey or the Turkish people (including in diaspora). The applicant should be able to present good research qualifications (e.g. in the form of publications in international forums), mainly in the Institute’s key areas, and documented experience of teaching at the university level. An important general qualification requirement is the ability to collaborate and work in groups, and the general ability and suitability required to perform one’s duties. Since many international researchers will be working at the Institute, English will largely be the working language. This means that the applicant is expected to speak and write English fluently. A good command of Swedish and Turkish is also required. If the successful candidate does not speak Swedish at the time of appointment, he/she is expected to acquire the necessary language skills during the first two years of employment.
