At the Department of Cultural Sciences we offer courses and pursue research in Art History and Visual Culture, Children and Youth Culture, Cultural Studies, Ethnology, Film Studies, Gender Studies, Musicology and Scandinavian Studies. Whether the studies concern different kinds of specific cultural expressions or wider cultural perspectives, our shared aim is to explore a multitude of aesthetical, historical, communicative and meaning-making aspects of human interaction in contemporary society.


Culture, Aesthetics and Media specialising in Interactive Media


In an era of converging and participatory modes of production and consumption of media and arts, we need new combinations of research on ‘culture’, ‘aesthetics’ and ‘media’. We have therefore created the transdisciplinary subject area of Culture, Aesthetics and Media – a field of applied humanistic arts and media research that unites mediated aesthetic expressions and aesthetic dimensions of media technologies with questions about how media and art are produced, communicated and used. In order to improve research on production strategies, innovative processes, new audience behaviour as well as the art and media objects themselves, Culture, Aesthetics and Media requires a combination of specialists and generalists within humanistic arts and media research.

The Department of Cultural Sciences aims at developing its collaboration with research in Digital Humanities and Game Studies at the University. We are now seeking a researcher and teacher with interactive media expertise in one or more of the following areas: art history/visual studies, film studies, game studies, media studies and musicology.


The position involves research and teaching, primarily in the field of Culture, Aesthetics and Media. The duties include primarily teaching, supervision and examination, in Swedish or English, within the Bachelor’s programme Media, Aesthetics and Cultural Entrepreneurship. The duties also include research, publication, active participation in the development of the Department’s research environments and seminar activities, as well as collaboration with others to gain external research funding. The appointment also includes administrative and management tasks, as well as collaboration within and outside the University.


Eligibility for employment as a teacher is set out in Chapter 4, Sections 3–4 of the Higher Education Ordinance and in the University of Gothenburg’s own appointment procedure.

To be eligible for employment as a senior lecturer, applicants must hold a Doctoral Degree or to possess equivalent scientific skills and have demonstrated scientific and teaching ability.

The employment as senior lecturer is described in the appointment procedure for teachers at the University of Gothenburg
