        Subject: Vacancy: Professorship in Digital Humanities

Dear All,

Please allow me to draw your attention to the following vacancy:

The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen seeks to fill a >>Professorship in Digital Humanities (Professorial Salary Scale W3)<< at the earliest possible date. This professorship should cover a broad spectrum of digital humanities in both research and teaching. This newly created position is part of Göttingen University’s institutional strategy to establish an eResearch Alliance (http://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/482513.html), which covers the entire Göttingen Research Campus (http://grc.uni-goettingen.de http://grc.uni-goettingen.de/ ). The new professor will work in close cooperation with the major stakeholders in this research and teaching alliance alongside the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, and, in particular, with the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Göttingen Computing Center (GWDG), the State and University Library (SUB), the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and the Herzog August Library Wolfenbüttel.

Within this ecosystem, the professor is expected to take the lead in expanding research and teaching in Digital Humanities. The appointee will facilitate disciplinary and interdisciplinary research in the humanities, social sciences and computer sciences, while taking leadership of the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH). The position therefore requires management and leadership skills, particularly, experience in establishing and managing large collaborative and interdisciplinary teaching and research projects.

Candidates are expected to have done outstanding research work in the digital humanities, demonstrate a strong commitment to excellent teaching and a successful track-record in the acquisition of third-party funded projects. At least two areas of the following fields of research should be covered:

-    Text mining of cultural studies-related data,
-    Web science, network analytics,
-    Digital editions,
-    Knowledge representation,
-    Data analysis and visualisation for the humanities.

The successful applicant is expected to teach courses for the B.A. and M.A. programmes in "Computer Science plus a Humanities or Social Sciences Subject (Teacher Training and Non-teacher Training)" and for the M.A. priority programme "Digital Humanities” in computer science. The appointee will carry a teaching load of 9 weekly lecture hours, parts of which may expressly be held in alternative teaching formats, like blended learning and the organisation of workshops and summer school courses. Collaboration in the development of an M.A./Ph.D. programme in “Digital Humanities” is expected.

All further requirements for professorial appointments are governed by Section 25 of the Higher Education Act of Lower Saxony (NHG) (Official Law Gazette of Lower Saxony, Nds. GVBl. 2007 p. 69). As a Public Law Foundation, Göttingen University holds the right of appointment. Further details can be provided upon request. For further information, please contact Professor Ramin Yahyapour, Center for Computational Sciences, applications at cs.uni-goettingen.de.

We explicitly welcome applications from foreign scholars and researchers. The University of Göttingen strives to increase its proportion of female staff in fields where women are underrepresented and expressly encourages qualified women to apply. Severely disabled persons with the appropriate qualifications will be favoured. Under certain circumstances, part-time employment is possible.

Electronic submission of applications with a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, an outline of the applicant's scientific career path including teaching experience and any planned research projects is requested by 29 October 2014 to the e-mail address: dekanat at math-cs.uni-goettingen.de.


With best wishes,
