About the Department/Section/Group

The position is primarily linked to teaching and academic supervision in Spanish literature at bachelor's and master's level.

It may also be relevant to contribute within other relevant study programmes provided by the department. The university college currently offers Spanish courses in the bachelor's programme in languages, the master's programme in foreign languages in schools, the primary and lower secondary teacher education and the one-year unit and the supplementary unit.

The university college is renowned for language, literature and culture in education, with the Spanish section as an active contributor. A large part of the department's research is therefore directed towards the focus area of Language in Education, in addition to the teaching development revolving around the work of becoming a National Provider of Foreign Languages (German, French and Spanish) in primary and lower secondary teacher education. The research of the Spanish section also includes the prioritized area The Digital Society. We especially welcome research and development profiles that are linked to work packages within the research programme ELLA – Education, Literature and Language or the education development programme STAS – language education across languages. There are also some research groups at the faculty that may be of interest.

The university college is located at our two campuses in Fredrikstad and Halden. Your main place of work will be in Halden. Since several of the department's courses are offered as online studies, some teaching and academic supervision must be expected to take place in the afternoon and evening.
