Postdoctoral Researcher in Science Communication

A one-year, full-time position as a postdoctoral researcher in science communication is available at the University of Copenhagen, with the possibility of a one-year extension. 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.

Terms of employment
The employment as postdoc is a full time and fixed-term position for one year, with the opportunity for a one-year extension. Starting date is 1 May 2020 or according to agreement.

Salary, pension and terms of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and AC (Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Currently, the monthly salary starts at 33,600 DKK/ approx. 4,480 Euro (April 2018-level). Depending on qualifications, a supplement may be negotiated. The employer will pay an additional 17.1 % to your pension fund.

Non-Danish and Danish applicants may be eligible for tax reductions, if they hold a PhD degree and have not lived in Denmark the last 10 years.

The position is covered by the “Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at the Universities” of June 28, 2013.

The employment is furthermore covered by the rules concerning assistant professors/researchers as described in the Job Structure for Academic Staff at Universities of 2020.

The University of Copenhagen has a policy of Danish/English parallel language use. All information on the UCPH-website is in both English and Danish. Your contract will be in English and any administrative help is available in English. Depending on your language competencies, your teaching/supervision duties will be in Danish or English.

Hence, documented results with and a willingness to actively pursue funding for research-based projects, consultancies etc. will be an advantage.

General Information

DIIS is a leading public research institute. Our aspiration is to strengthen independent research on international affairs, and on the basis of this to provide analyses and recommendations on Denmark’s opportunities within the wider area of foreign, security and development policy. DIIS aims to be at the cutting edge of multidisciplinary research, policy analysis and communication on global affairs.

DIIS offers a dynamic and innovative international research environment with a focus on professionalism, flexibility and mutual respect amongst all colleagues. As the institute’s tasks are varied, with a wide-ranging scope of activities, we expect our staff to be flexible. DIIS employs a relatively flat management structure with a high degree of staff involvement in freely and openly exchanging views on the institute’s internal and external issues. Employees play a proactive and constructive role in the DIIS community and are expected to be present at the workplace when not travelling. However, we also allow flexible working hours, seek to be a family friendly workplace, show consideration for each other and value different perspectives.

DIIS is a bilingual Danish-English workplace. Candidates may apply for the position without prior knowledge of Danish but are expected to learn the language within the first 3 years of employment, as we place equal importance on written communication and dissemination of knowledge in both languages.

The institute is situated in a modern building in the new waterfront city district of Copenhagen, Nordhavn. The district is located approximately 3 km from the city centre and offers excellent public transportation options. Visit www.diis.dk to learn more about our institute.
