Applications are invited for a lecturer position in nanotechnology to join Chalmers University of Technology. This position is closed on November 21, 2018.

Information about the division

The Division for Language and Communication is part of the Department of Communication and Learning in Science and provides language and technical communication education for most of the engineering programmes at Chalmers at BSc, MSc, and PhD levels. We meet with both national and international student groups on our two campuses. In close collaboration with program managers, we design our courses and interventions as integrated into other courses in order to continuously promote the discipline-specific communication situations the students face during their education and thereafter. Many of our solutions therefore comprise entire programs and our teams of teachers are often expected to assume the role of a specific programme's communication team and design and deliver all the communication-related courses in Swedish as well as in English across a programme.

The candidates will be expected to work in our different teams of teachers in integrated courses as well as in supervising communication processes in various disciplinary settings. The posts may also involve single responsibility for a course and contribution to materials development.
