It is important that the successful applicant takes part in the daily activities of the department to which he/she belongs, including both teaching and supervising.

Applicants must also have expertise with regard to qualitative and/or quantitative methods, and experience of participation in research teams using and developing these methods in combination, i.e. using and developing a mixed-method approach. Applicants with expertise in the mixed-method design of research projects and/or research-based development projects in the field of school research will be preferred, and will be affiliated with research projects in relation to the National Centre for School Research (NCS).
