        Subject: Lecturership (1 yr.) in Humanities Computing

The Institute of Linguistics and Literary Studies at the Technische

Lecturer (75 %) in the field of
Humanities Computing in Text Studies

The position is initially for one year with a potential extension 
subject to performance and funding.

The prospective postholder should have an interest and documented 
qualifications and skills in questions of the application of corpus and 
computational linguistics as well as corpus stylistic methods and

The prospective postholder will be encouraged to engage with the current 
research activities of the institute in the field of Digital Humanities 
(computational philology / corpus linguistics). He or she will teach 
courses (3 hours per week) in this area of specialization and be 
expected to take over administrative tasks (student counseling, writing 
research proposals etc.).

The successful applicant will be given the opportunity to conduct their 
own research and pursue a further qualification (PhD, Habilitation, 
second book).

The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of 
female faculty members and encourages female candidates to apply. In 
case of equal qualifications severely disabled applicants will be given 
preference. Remuneration is according to the Tarifvertrag TV - TU Darmstadt.
