We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Subject field

Engineering acoustics

Subject description

The subject area includes the studies of generation, propagation or control of sound and vibrations, with applications within complex mechanical structures, systems, materials and media. The research involves methodology development and a combination of numerical and experimental studies.

Duties

The position includes research and education in the subject area. Within research, the assistant professor is expected to form new networks internally at KTH and externally, and actively apply for research funding. The assistant professor is expected to teach at basic and advanced level within the subject area. This includes the development of existing and new courses, and supervision of master theses work in the subject area. Some administrative duties are also included. The assistant professor is expected to be able to teach in Swedish within four years. If necessary, a language development plan will be implemented at the start of employment.

The assistant professor will be given opportunity to develop their independence as researcher and gain accreditation that may allow them to take other teaching positions with higher eligibility requirements (see Chapter 4, Section 12 a of the Higher Education Ordinance). Following application, the assistant professor can apply for promotion to associate professor in accordance with Chapter 4, Section 12 c of the Higher Education Ordinance.

Eligibility

An individual who has obtained a PhD or equivalent research expertise is qualified for appointment as an assistant professor. Candidates who met those qualifications within five years prior to expiration of the application period should be prioritized. Other candidates may also be considered if there are extraordinary grounds for doing so. Extraordinary grounds refer to illness, parental leave or similar circumstances.

Grounds of assessments
The assessment criteria for appointment as an assistant professor at KTH are stated in KTH's appointments procedure section 1.3 and apply in relation to the employment profile laid down.
