ASB’s supplementary guidelines for the position of Associate Professor
The position of Associate Professor is advertised nationally and internationally.
The minimum qualifications for appointment as Associate Professor are:


Research qualifications:
   Publication in internationally recognised journals or other internationally recognised publication outlets
    that employ the referee system or another recognised peer review method. The emphasis is on the quality
    of the production rather than the quantity. However, applicants will normally be required to have
    published three articles in internationally recognised peer-reviewed journals or three contributions to
    other internationally recognised outlets that employ the referee system or another recognised peer review
    method. 1
    Applicants are also expected to have recent publishing activities at international level.
    It is not a requirement that all the publications have been finally published by the end of the appointment
    period for the assistant professorship, but they should as a minimum have been accepted for publication.
    It would be natural for one or more of the publications to be based on or be an edited version of the
    applicant’s PhD thesis, however the applicant must demonstrate that the research conducted during his or
    her assistant professorship has developed beyond the scope of the PhD thesis.
   Applicants must be able to demonstrate an ability to cooperate and contribute to the development of a
    research environment.
   Applicants must have built up international relations through participation in international conferences,
    networks and/or through involvement in other types of cross-border collaboration.


Teaching qualifications:
   Applicants must possess excellent teaching qualifications. The teaching qualifications of applicants are
    evaluated as a minimum via a test lecture. Good teaching qualifications means that the applicant
    possesses several of the following qualifications:
    o    Good communication skills
    o    Ability to put academic content into perspective in relation to theories, practice and other subjects
    o    Conscious and systematic motivation of correlations between academic content and the teaching
         methods and forms of evaluations applied
    o    Dedication and ability to motivate students to learn
    o    Will and ability to engage in dialogue with students with a view to ensuring the ongoing evaluation
         of teaching activities
    o    Desire and ability for academic and methodological innovation
    o    Ability to vary, develop and use different teaching methods
    o    Ability to teach and ensure learning at different academic levels
    o    Desire and ability to develop and strengthen the international dimension of ASB’s study programmes


   Applicants must have completed a pedagogical training programme for assistant professors. In cases
    where an applicant has not completed a pedagogical training programme, the applicant must complete
    such a programme within the first year of the appointment period.


   Applicants must demonstrate an ability to contribute independently and in cooperation with others to the
    academic and pedagogical development of a course or study programme.

the research community, in teaching contexts and for research purposes.
