Professor in Energy engineering with a focus on Electric Power Engineering


Mälardalen University (MDU) is the youngest university in Sweden. In line with our vision, to be a progressive and collaborative University where we shape a sustainable future together, we wish to make a difference.

Do you want to be involved and contribute to our development?

Together, we can create a sustainable future through knowledge and innovation. We believe that knowledge and new perspectives are best attained and reached together in collaboration with others – our colleagues, students, the private and public sectors, both nationally and internationally.

At the Academy for Economics, Society and Technology, our students study for, among other things, university and civil engineers, political scientists and economists. With us, the research focuses are industrial economics and organization and the energy of the future. Our work takes place in collaboration and in strategic agreements with companies, organizations and authorities in the region.

Employment information

Employment: Permanent employment Scope: Full time Closing date for application: 2024-02-25 Campus location: Västeras School: School of Business, Society and Engineering, (EST)

Position description

As a Professor in Energy engineering with a focus on Electric Power Engineering, you are expected to actively collaborate with other professors within the Future Energy FEC, as well as with other researchers at the university and in national and international research environments, and with the surrounding society to jointly develop knowledge to integrate different perspectives on society's transition work towards increased electrification and climate adaptation. You are expected to actively contribute to the development of research in future energy and to take a leading role in the further development of the educational programs in energy engineering with a focus on increasing the element of electric power engineering and electrification in connection with the energy transition

Qualification requirements

Academic skills should be demonstrated by independent research work which to a significant degree exceeds the requirements for docent competence (see the University's Guidelines for assessment of docent competence).

Importance is also attached to the planning and leading of research. Academic skills may also have been demonstrated by the ability to achieve results in research through cooperation in joint projects of benefit to academia and to industry/the public sector/society in general and through the ability to disseminate research.

Teaching skills will have been demonstrated by teaching at first-cycle as well as third-cycle levels. The assessment of teaching skills shall apply to the planning, carrying out and evaluation of teaching as well as supervision and examination. Teaching skills shall be documented in such a way that their quality can also be assessed.

The applicant should have completed ten weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning, or have otherwise acquired equivalent knowledge. A person appointed as a Professor but lacking training in higher education teaching and learning will be offered in-house training within two and a half years. The course in higher education teaching and learning at Mälardalen University corresponds to ten weeks of training.

To be considered for the position, you should be able to demonstrate documented good ability to:

  • obtain external research funds for your and others' research
  • lead various types of research projects and in collaboration with others develop research projects
  • collaborate with national and international research environments
  • have contributed to research and/or educational initiatives in electric power engineering
  • develop your research area in breadth and depth
  • You should also demonstrate current research activity in an area relevant to the position and show experience in leading research groups and/or projects.

    For other information, consult the Higher Education Ordinance, Chapter 4, and the Mälardalen University's Appointment Regulations

    Assessment criteria

    The assessment criteria shall be based on the degree of skills required for the appointment. In general terms these assessment criteria shall include the ability to cooperate as well as the ability and suitability otherwise required to fulfil the duties well.

    The same attention shall be paid to the assessment of teaching skills as to the assessment of academic skills.

    As the position includes a mission to increase research activity in the subject of electric power engineering, it is advantageous if you have experience in:

  • building up a research group
  • collaborating and cooperating with others to create creative research opportunities
  • disseminating knowledge in various forums and contributing to the development of society
  • teaching in both Swedish and English.
  • In the assessment, weight is also given to the applicant's documented experience of management responsibility with regard to the subject content and tasks of the position.

    Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organisation.
