Summer work ("sommarjobb") at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm, during several summers between 1988 and 1996 (all together six months). I worked at the Herbarium, Department of Phanerogamic Botany, first under Kåre Bremer (1988) and later under Arne Anderberg and Bertil Nordenstam.
Fall 2005 I teached one week (October 3-7) at the Master Programme Management of Biological Diversity (80 points/120 ECTS credits), during the Identification and assessment of biological diversity part (5p/7.5 credits). I was responsible teacher (lector) during my part, and I teached biodiversity (Tree of Life) and basic phylogenetic theory and methods. The course is given at the Centrum for Biodiversity CBM in Upppsala as a co-operation between Swedish University of Agriculture and Uppsala university, and is partly financed by SIDA.
I have co-produced the international web-based course Linnaeus' life and sciences (5 points/7.5 ECTS credits), including writing several texts on Linnaeus' life, work and his disciples. Summer 2005 I held a lecture on the Linnaean disciple Carl Peter Thunberg and his travel to Japan as part of of the Swedish summer course Carl von Linné (5 points); my lecture was also included in the Uppsala Linnaeus week. I have also supervised some ten student at these courses.
I have been laboratory teacher at Elementary Biology Courses, and at the undergraduate courses in Systematic Botany and Systematic Biology, all at Uppsala University. I have beenb Field teacher in the Elementary Course in Floristics at Uppsala University, and responsible teacher for parts of the same course.

Non-professional merits and interests
I have been involved in caving since August 1984. During these years I have visited caves in Sweden, Norway, Poland, Hungary, Mongolia, Wales, Czech Republic, and South Africa. Since 1990 I have been involved in exploring new caves in Norway, and have found and documented several new caves with lengths up to 350 metres. In 1993 I and Torbjörn Doj, Östersund, found Tjoarvekrájgge, Bonnå, Northern Norway, which since then has been mapped to more than 22km in length and nearly 500m in depth, ranking it as the second deepest and by far the longest cave in Scandinavia (and ranked on the NSS World Long Cave List). The exploration and documentation of Tjoarvekrájgge has been done in co-operation with numerous cavers from, among other countries, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Denmark and Great Britain. In the same area Torbjörn Doj, Rickard Doj and I found another cave, Steinaksla, in the summer 2000, now explored to 2.9km in length and 191m in depth and thus the tenth longest and deepest cave in Norway. I was on the board of the Swedish Speleological Society SSF 1999 -- 2002, and then again 2007 -- 2009, and also its treasurer 2000 -- 2002. I am one of the editors for SSF:s journal Grottan. I am also member of the Norwegian Cave Rescue Service Norsk Grotteredningstjeneste ("Responseteamet").
I practiced jujutsu (originally a Japanese martial art) from 1994 to 2005 at Uppsala Ju-Jutsuklubb UJJK (the largest jujutsu clubb in Sweden, with about 400 members), and have attained black belt (1 dan, spring 2001). I have also practiced a little aikido, judo, and karate, and two years (2002-2004) of shorinjikempo at Rakutodoin in Kyoto where I reached 2 kyu. I was junior instructor in jujutsu at UJJK between 1998 and 2001, and senior instructor 2001 -- 2002. I was treasurer at UJJK between 1998 and 2001.
