It is a merit to have an interdisciplinary research record and practical experience within the area of data science.

Additional information

An applicant who does not have at least 15 higher education credits in teaching and learning in higher education, and is not deemed to have acquired equivalent knowledge, must complete such training within the first two years of employment.

Proficiency in Swedish is not a requirement for the position, but the applicant has to be ready to take on administrative and pedagogical tasks that demand an understanding and usage of Swedish after two years of employment.

Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.

In the event of a discrepancy between the Swedish original vacancy and the English translation, the Swedish version takes precedence.
