Place of employment: Nobel Park, Jens Chr. Skous Vej 4, 8000 Aarhus C.

The position
The successful applicant will be expected to develop research within the field of Latin American and Spanish culture, media, and society in a contemporary context.
Applicants are expected to have research qualifications within the field of cultural studies in a broad sense related to the Spanish-speaking world and to analyse how cultural products (such as literature, film, drama and popular culture) and other social phenomena (such as popular movements, conflicts and peacebuilding processes, and uses of the past) contribute to the construction of social relations and the negotiation of cultural identities. We particularly welcome applications from applicants with knowledge on the question of how form (aesthetics) influences function (interpretation, reception and impact).
We are looking for an innovative and dedicated applicant who will strengthen the research and teaching profiles of the department nationally and internationally and who will contribute to Aarhus University’s core activities in the areas of research, teaching and supervision, talent development and knowledge exchange.

Research
The Department of German and Romance Languages at Aarhus University has a pronounced and significant international profile and a strong research network. Over the last decade, the department has developed a strong profile within the field of cultural studies in relation to the Spanish-speaking parts of the world, and it has been a leading partner in the development of international networks and projects within this field. Applicants who would be able to continue and develop this profile will be preferred.

We are looking for an applicant who can take charge of the Latin American Center (LACUA) and be the editor in chief of the AU-based international journal Diálogos latinoamericanos.

The successful applicant will be expected to publish original peer-reviewed research internationally as well as making scholarly contributions to developments within the field. The successful applicant will also be expected to contribute to research initiatives in relation to both the field of contemporary Latin American and Spanish culture, media and society and the research community at the department in order to develop new collaborative research projects with internal and external partners and to pursue external research funding.

Teaching and supervision
We are looking for applicants with teaching and supervising experience in the field of contemporary Latin American and Spanish culture, media and society in a contemporary context at university level.

The successful applicant will be expected to take part in the department’s teaching and supervision activities and to teach and supervise on the department’s Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD degree programmes, particularly in the Bachelor’s degree programme in Spanish and Latin-American Language, Literature and Culture; the MA degree programme in Spanish and Spanish American Language, Literature and Culture; and the MA degree programme in Intercultural Studies (Latin America and Spain). Applicants who would also be able to offer teaching within the fields of Spanish language and grammar will be preferred. Please indicate in your application which courses you could teach.

The successful applicant will also be expected to apply innovative teaching methods and to contribute to the ongoing development of curricula and the degree programme(s) within the field of contemporary Latin American and Spanish culture, media and society. In this connection, experience of degree programme and curriculum development at universities or similar institutions will be an advantage.

Given the international focus of the degree programmes, the successful applicant will also be expected to teach in English as well as Spanish and Danish.

Talent development
We are looking for applicants who have experience of supervising students at both BA and MA levels. The successful applicant will be expected to supervise students at both Bachelor’s and Master’s levels as well as supervising and helping to develop the careers of early-career researchers. The successful applicant will also be expected to recruit and supervise PhD students and to participate in the development and implementation of PhD courses within the field.

Knowledge exchange

This international top-100 University has made an ambitious strategic investment in a 5-year recruitment plan to place the University in direct competition with the global engineering elite. Therefore, the University is emphasizing Socio-Technical Design as a key element in engineering science.

The position is available from 1st August 2020 or as soon as possible hereafter.

Socio-Technical Design @ Department of Engineering, Aarhus University
From a point of departure in established collaboration within engineering disciplines and computer science the ambition of the Socio-Technical Design group is to supply design competences in both research and teaching across all scientific and technical disciplines at the university with a particular focus on design at the intersection of social and technical systems.

The group gathers competences from architecture, industrial design, interaction design, textile design and anthropology inspired design. We believe that design skills are built on solid artistic and academic foundations and best executed in a strong technical environment with empathy for social impact. This is echoed in our credo: that we equally care for at the object of design and the impact of design.

The group deploys the approach of Constructive Design Research to develop new knowledge, promoting sketching, co-creation and frame innovation as key elements of research and teaching. In this context design is an interdisciplinary practice merging strong technical competences, aesthetic and social concerns, designed artefacts, systems and spaces whether manifested in materials or concepts.

The Candidate
The ideal candidate brings Human Centered Co-Design together with abilities to create software for the digital fabrication and experience in building interfaces humans-machine loops for mass customization. Ideas on how this leads to increased sustainability within industrial processes and everyday life is a plus. Additionally, we expect applicants to show competences in formgiving, drawing and sketching.

Applicants are requested to submit a research plan and teaching portfolio accompanied by a vision statement for the position including expected contributions to the group and how it is connected to prior achievements.

The candidate is required to teach relevant courses in design across computer science, engineering and other technical educational programs, and the candidate is encouraged to establish new, specialized courses within his or her field.

Applicants should as a minimum hold a PhD degree and have experience in post-graduate research and publication activities. The successful candidate must show an emerging productive publication record. Participation in international and national networks of researchers is expected.

The place of work is Navitas, Inge Lehmanns Gade 10, DK-8000 Aarhus C, and the area of employment is Aarhus University with related departments.

Technical Sciences Tenure Track
Aarhus University offers talented scientists from around the world attractive career perspectives via the Technical Sciences Tenure Track Programme. Highly qualified candidates are appointed as Assistant Professors for a period of six years with the prospect of performance- based advancement to a tenured Associate Professorship.

The aim of the Technical Sciences Tenure Track Programme is to:
  • attract outstanding talented individuals that are competitive at an international level
  • to promote the early development of independent research success early in the career of scientists
  • to create transparency in the academic career path
As part of the tenure track position, the candidate is offered:
  • access to research infrastructure
  • capability development, including postgraduate teacher training
  • a mentoring programme
  • support to develop scientific networks and to secure interdisciplinary research at the highest level
