Häme Unversity of Applied Sciences


Senior Lecturer, Computer Applications
Häme Unversity of Applied Sciences (HAMK), Finland


Applications are invited for the full-time post of Senior Lecturer within the degree programme in Computer Applications. The job will start 1st of August 2019 or by separate agreement.


We expect that you are well versed within the topic of computer science, and especially programming is something that is close to your heart. You do not need to be an expert at everything, but you definitely need to be a team player at heart. We organize teaching around teams of teachers, not around individuals, and believe firmly that together we achieve the best results. Thus having the ability to develop and teach courses together with your colleagues is one of the key attributes in being successful.


We expect you to be familiar with flipped learning as a method of teaching. A lot of our teaching also happens through hands-on projects and exercises, which in both cases means that having the ability to interact with students effectively is another key component in being successful. Teaching experience at a university or university of applied sciences is also highly appreciated.


We require you to possess a masters degree in a relevant field of study and be competent in English language. As our students come from different cultural backgrounds, having experience in working with an international group of students is considered an advantage. We assume you have practical experience within your profession, and are knowledgeable of the current developments within the field. Your ability to network and develop partnerships with external organizations will be also relevant to further develop the quality and relevancy of teaching within the degree programme.

Teaching will be organized in Hämeenlinna.


We are more than happy to give more information about this position.
