The position starts on 1 May 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Department of Science Education seeks an excellent early career scholar for a position as a postdoctoral researcher in science communication. The position involves research and teaching within science communication with a particular emphasis on the interfaces between science communication and ‘informal’ science education (i.e. science education in museums, science centres, zoos, aquaria, etc.). The position will be attached to the research group Out-of-School Science Education (https://outofschoolscience.sites.ku.dk/).

The postdoctoral researcher’s duties will primarily include research, including publishing and co-publishing research with other members of the research group. The researcher will participate in developing research projects in the group, and in fundraising for those projects. Further, the postdoctoral researcher’s duties include research-based teaching with associated examination obligations within (but not limited to) the Department’s course portfolio in science communication.

Qualifications
We seek a candidate with a PhD in science communication or a similar research discipline. The candidate should have a strong beginning research record in science communication research, with publications that are internationally competitive, and/or have the potential to make a future impact. Further, the ability to undertake teaching and supervision tasks relatively independently, from early on in the employment period, would be an advantage.

The position represents a strategic exploration of the interfaces between science communication research and ‘informal’ science education research. Candidates should therefore submit a two-page outline of their research interests and plans, including an indication of where they see potentials in these interfaces and how their research plans could involve these potentials.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the head of the research group for Out-of-School Science Education Marianne Achiam (achiam@ind.ku.dk) well in advance of the deadline to discuss their application.
