Norwegian Visiting Lectureship: Call for Applications

Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU) calls for applications from higher education institutions outside Norway concerning lectureships in Norwegian language and literature for the period 2015 – 2020.

Successful applicants will be provided with an offer to sign a contract of collaboration with SIU, under which SIU will provide the institution with the following assistance: Advertising of the vacant lecturer positions in relevant fora in Norway, the recruitment and selection of qualified Norwegian lecturers, and general advice and assistance concerning the lectureships.

Furthermore, after the successful employment of a Norwegian lecturer at the institution, SIU will provide a personal grant to the lecturer employed, as a means to compensate for differences in salary levels between Norway and the host country.

Who may apply?

The following higher education institutions outside Norway, which offer study programmes in Norwegian language and literature, are eligible for applying:

• institutions which currently employ a Norwegian visiting lecturer (funded in part by grants from SIU); and
