Sweden is a favourite destination for academics. Here's a breakdown of the most common Swedish academic jobs and their salaries.
Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging includes imaging methods such as x-ray, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and scintigraphy and the interpretation of the methods on mainly small and large animals. These methods are central in research and clinical activities within the subject.
The position involves conducting research in the subject area, participating in and developing teaching and education at advanced level as well as supervision of post graduate students. The position also includes undertaking administrative duties and assignments within the department and faculty.
The main task of the associate senior lecturer is to develop a strong research platform, together with the Chair within the subject, in which the associate senior lecturer independently pursues research within the subject area. The duties include applying for external research funding.
Those holding a doctoral degree or equivalent scientific qualification are eligible to apply for the position as Associate Senior Lecturer. The candidate should preferably have held this degree or qualification for no more than five years before the closing date for applications for this position.
