AssocProfRecruitment2015

Working group to recruit AssocProf + Lecturers

  • Goal / timeline:
    • 2015-04-06: Deadline for applications: we received 30 AssocProf applications and 24 Lecturer applications from a total of 45 individuals.
    • 2015-04/05: Review by external experts
    • 2015-06-01: Short-listing meeting for the ST seniors + recruitment group (providing input to central AK)
    • 2016-06-02: Short-list decision by Chalmers central employment committee (AK)
    • 2015-06-18/30: Lectures + interviews + decision
    • 2015-08-15: Prel. new employees in place (+-3 months depending on candidate availability)

Pre-screening (done 2015-04-14)

Chalmers guidelines suggests pre-screening of applicants so that the external reviewers get a maximum of 15 applicants to evaluate. In our case we had 30 AssocProf applications and 24 Lecturer applications so a recruitment group subset (Mary, Andrei, Gerardo, Ana, Patrik) suggested, and AK decided on a selection of 15 + 13 applications to send to external reviewers.

Expert reviews (done 2015-05-31)

For the AssocProf ad two subject experts and one pedagogical expert were asked to evaluate and rank the pre-screened candidates.

For the Lecturer ad one subject expert and one pedagogical expert were asked to evaluate and rank the pre-screened candidates.

Short-listing (2015-06-02)

Based on the expert reviews and our own reading of the applications, the ST-division seniors + the recruitment group met 2015-06-01 at 13.15 to propose a short-list of candidates to interview for each position. Then the central AK decided (with MaSh, AnSa, AnBo, JoKa present, 2015-06-02 10.50-11:30 in Kugghjulet, AoS-huset, Chalmersplatsen 4, J-berg) and invited the short-listed candidates for the interview days.

Lectures + interviews (June 18 + 30)

We have scheduled the two interview days in the second half of June (2015-06-18 + 2015-06-30). Each short-listed applicant will be asked to give a trial lecture and there will be interviews. The lectures are open but the interviews are conducted by just the central AK + a few representatives from the department. For the interviews we need to have

  • prefekt or pro-prefekt
  • HR-specialist (Sofie)
  • Div.head + a few others from the division

The end result of these days is a ranking of the top candidates for each position. The final decisions for all the positions will be taken after the last interview day.

2014-06: Mail from Patrik Jansson till Ana, Andrei, Christer, Gerardo, Gunilla, Michel, Mary, Jonna, Peter, Jan

I ST-avdelningens bemanningsplan ingår preliminärt en utökning av kollegiet med två docenttjänster i början av 2016 (med annonsering av tjänsterna före sommaren 2015). Jag vill be er medverka i en arbetsgrupp som tar fram kravprofil, annons, mm. för denna rekrytering.

Arbetet behöver påbörjas efter sommaren och kravprofilen behöver vara klar innan jul inklusive förankring i institutionskollegiet samt ledningsgruppen.

I nuläget (senast 3:e juli) behöver jag bara en bekräftelse ... [cut]
