The Department of Occupational Therapy, Prosthetics and Orthotics at the Faculty of Health Sciences has a vacancy for a part-time position (50 per cent of full-time) as an associate professor in clinical orthopaedic biomechanics from 1 August 2021. Appointment in a lower percentage of a full-time position is also possible in combination with a relevant clinical role.
The advertised position will primarily be affiliated to the field of prosthetics and orthotics and involve research, teaching, supervision and assessment in clinical orthopaedic biomechanics. The person appointed is expected to teach anatomy and pathology, and may also be expected to contribute to teaching in common subjects at both bachelor’s and master’s degree level.
The Prosthetics and Orthotics programme is a national study programme. As a result of the great demand for prosthetics and orthotics candidates, the programme has increased both the frequency of admissions and the number of students admitted over the past years. We are looking for someone with a strong desire to contribute to the development of the programme and to raise the quality of teaching, research and knowledge dissemination.
New programme descriptions have recently been developed for all the bachelor’s programmes at the Faculty of Health Science, and from 2021, we will start using the new programme description for the Bachelor’s Programme in Prosthetics and Orthotics. A master’s degree programme in Health Science that includes several different specialisations will also be offered from autumn 2021, and we are currently developing a master’s degree programme in Health and Technology.
As an associate professor, you will be part of an active and ambitious team with interdisciplinary competence and extensive teaching experience. We are currently working to apply mixed reality technology in our basic subjects, and are looking for applicants who are used to working with digital learning methods. We are constantly working to develop the discipline, and extensive research activity takes place in the department, including in the two research groups Clinical Interventions and Biomedical Engineering and Interventions in Work and Everyday Life.
The applicant must document relevant educational competence. The criteria for the assessment of such competence are set out in the Guidelines for the Assessment of Educational Competence at OsloMet. Applicants who are unable to document basic educational competence upon appointment must achieve such qualifications within two years. OsloMet offers a programme in university pedagogy (UHPED) that meets this requirement.
General criteria for appointment to teaching and research positions are set out in the Regulations concerning appointment and promotion to teaching and research posts.
OsloMet will test teaching qualifications in connection with interviews.
