Uppsala University Department of Game Design

Lecturer in Graphics and Animation

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 46.000 students, 7.300 employees and a turnover of SEK 7.3 billion.

Uppsala University’s Department of Game Design is located at Campus Gotland, which has the best of two worlds: the broad range and high status of the full-scale University’s education and research and the unique study environment at a small-scale campus. Here, education in the areas of game development and game design is provided, and research focusing on basic issues in game design is under way.

The Department offers education in the principal area of game design, with four Bachelor (BA) degree programmes (Game Design, Game Design and Graphics, Game Design and Programming, and Game Design and Project Management) and a Master (MA) degree programme in Game Design. The Department also offers freestanding courses in game design, graphics and game programming.

Assessment criteria

In the selection among eligible applicants, the main emphasis will be laid on teaching expertise. “Teaching expertise” refers to qualifications in education and teaching. In the assessment of teaching expertise, the quality of teaching will be the primary consideration. Weight will also be assigned to the ability to plan, initiate, lead and develop education and teaching.

Particular emphasis will be laid on teaching skill. Accordingly, an applicant who is more skilful in teaching will have precedence over an applicant with superior academic qualifications.

In this recruitment, the University will mainly consider candidates who, after a qualitative assessment of their expertise and skill, are judged to have the best capacity to implement and develop the duties concerned, and contribute to favourable development of the work, as staff members with an active presence at the Department.

All qualifications must be documented so that both their quality and their scope can be assessed.
