Job description

The Department of Earth Sciences is Sweden’s largest and most versatile department of its kind with a unique breadth. We are about 250 employees from different countries. Our activities are interdisciplinary and combine natural sciences and technology with social sciences. We have research programmes in air, water and landscape science; geophysics; natural resources and sustainable development; mineralogy, petrology and tectonics; palaeobiology and wind energy. By studying Earth’s history, we understand how the planet has evolved and how our endeavour towards sustainable development can benefit from this knowledge. The position will be located in the Air, Water and Landscape Science programme that brings together research and education in hydrology, meteorology, environmental analysis and physical geography. The position will focus on the hydrological cycle, but also include water resources and aquatic environmental analysis.


Teaching, research and administration. Teaching duties include course responsibility and course administration and supervision of second- and third-cycle students. The teacher is expected to teach courses with a hydrological focus at undergraduate and graduate level in the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Earth Sciences, the Master’s programme in Water Engineering and the Master’s programme in Environmental and Water Engineering. In particular, this includes course responsibility for courses in environmental analysis and introductory courses in hydrology. Supervision and examination of degree projects within the programmes will be included. The own research aims to strengthen and develop the department’s research profile in hydrology, water resources and aquatic environmental analysis.
