Candidates must hold a masters degree and a PhD relevant for research within condensed matter or materials physics. Candidates must also document strong research activities in advanced transmission electron microscopy, in particular with quantitative analytical techniques and materials in areas highlighted above. The field of research must lie within an area with strategic relevance to current activities at the faculty within functional materials. Emphasis in the evaluation will be put on research papers in this field published in the past five years. The evaluation will take into account the loss of publishing productivity for applicants who have had parental leave during the last years.
Pedagogical skills and qualifications will be emphasized in the evaluation. Candidates must have a commitment and a vision for teaching and outreach. This includes development of teaching materials, involvement in course and study programme development and governance, as well as supervision of students at all levels. Accordingly, didactical skills, qualifications and potential will be evaluated based on documented experience in teaching, outreach, course and study programme management, supervision of doctoral and master students and related work.
The candidate must demonstrate the ability to initiate and lead research programs, and show a clear potential for externally funded research and scholarships, both independently and in collaboration with colleagues at the department, the faculty and NTNU through national and European funding sources.
Basic qualifications in the discipline of education are required. Anyone who is appointed without having formal basic qualifications in the discipline of education (formerly referred to as practical qualifications in teaching at university level) and who is unable to document equivalent qualifications is required to complete an approved course within two years of appointment. Uniped at NTNU offers qualifying courses.
Pedagogical skills and qualifications will be emphasized. The evaluation will be based on documented material related to teaching, forms of presentation for the academic works, experience in teaching, supervision of doctoral and master’s degree subjects as well as other types of pedagogical background. Applicants with teaching experience at university level will be preferred. Quality and breadth will be evaluated.
Employees who do not have formal qualifications in teaching at university level and who cannot provide documentation of equivalent qualifications must complete an approved pedagogical development programme within two years of appointment.
The person appointed must comply with the decisions about changes due to developments in the subject area, and the organizational changes that may result from decisions regarding the university's activities.
