Duties include teaching and supervision in mathematics at both undergraduate, advanced and research level, as well as research and research administration. Another important task is the successful application of external research funding.
Teaching is an essential part of the duties and the position will consist of 80% teaching and 20% research. The majority of the teaching will be conducted at undergraduate level within engineering and the teacher education programmes and will also include course co-ordination and development. The applicant is expected to teach in Swedish after two years of employment at the latest.
The candidate is expected to actively contribute to the development of the mathematics research group by carrying out high-quality research with focus on PDEs (computational methods, multiscale mathematical analysis, and related topics). The candidate is expected to be actively involved in strengthening and maintaining his/her own professional network. Moreover, the candidate is expected to act as an independent player in a team, for instance, by promoting interactions and collaborations with other departments of the university and the local community as well as internationally.
In order to contribute to a good working environment and the development of the department’s activities, the candidate is expected to be based at the university in Karlstad and take part in the day-to-day operations.
