330046979Full Professor and Professor with Special Responsibilities (MSO) in Systematic Theology (Dogmatics, Ethics and Philosophy of Religion, and Global Theology)Robot The School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, invites applications for a full professorship as well as a five-year professorship with special responsibilities ( Professor MSO in Danish), both within the field of systematic theology. Both positions are available from 1 August 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter. Whereas the full professorship is a permanent position, the MSO professorship is temporary for a period of five years, upon which the employment contract may be extended up to a maximum of eight years in total. On expiry of this period, the MSO professor will be offered employment and remuneration as an associate professor. Applicants must state clearly which of the two positions they are applying for. If an applicant wishes to apply for both positions, two applications, one for each position, are required. The position is located at Jens Chr. Skous Vej 3-7, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark. The deadline for applications is 1 September 2019. The university wants its staff to reflect the diversity of society, and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of their personal background. The positions The positions are being offered within the broad field of systematic theology, as we seek to attract top-level candidates who can contribute to the further development of the thriving research and educational environments at the Department of Theology. At Aarhus University, systematic theology encompasses three disciplines: dogmatics, ethics and the philosophy of religion, and global theology (mission theology). We welcome applications within each of the three fields, though currently there is a special interest in applicants whose research field is within ethics and the philosophy of religion. The full professor is expected to ensure academic quality at the highest international level in both research and teaching, as well as providing academic leadership pertaining to research, education, talent development and the dissemination of knowledge within the fields of dogmatics, ethics and the philosophy of religion, or global mission theology. Furthermore, the full professor must ensure the ongoing academic development of the Department of Theology, nationally and internationally. A strong devotion to and experience of talent development and nurturing of young scholars as well as capacity building in collaboration with international partner institutions are required. Applicants for the chair of full professor must submit a research plan and present an outline of how they envision enacting and accomplishing the tasks required in relation to the existing profile of the Department of Theology and the School of Culture and Society. The MSO professor is expected to possess qualifications similar to the full professor, albeit with less emphasis on talent development. The position is intended for researchers to carry out specific projects or develop particularly promising and innovative areas of research within the designated time frame of five years. Applicants for the MSO professorship must formulate a distinct vision for their research field within dogmatics, ethics and the philosophy of religion, or global mission theology. This must include a research plan to show how the applicant aims to achieve his or her goals within the time frame of five years. Research Candidates must be able to document extensive research experience and leadership within the field of systematic theology, in one of its three disciplines. We are seeking candidates with excellent and well-documented core theological research credentials, particularly specialists within the fields of ethics and the philosophy of religion and or dogmatics, an outstanding publication record, and a documented ability to attract external funding and nurture national and international collaboration. The research activities will be evaluated in relation to the actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify any periods of leave they may need without research activities (e.g. maternity paternity, illness, etc.), in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of their academic career when evaluating their productivity. Education Applicants should be prepared to teach and contribute to developing courses, teaching and supervision at all levels of the degree programmes in theology (BA, MA and PhD), and will be expected to have considerable teaching and supervision experience at university level. Applicants must also be able and willing to contribute to other degree programmes offered by the School of Culture and Society. Talent development The Department of Theology values its large and growing population of PhD students and other junior researchers highly, and wishes to sustain the focus on emerging research. The successful applicants are expected to have an eye for the attraction and development of junior researchers, and to contribute to the talent development and supervision of PhD students (including creating and teaching PhD courses) and postdocs. Knowledge exchange The successful applicants are expected to engage in the exchange and dissemination of knowledge with society as a whole (cf. the strategy for the AU Faculty of Arts), for example by engaging in research cooperation with private companies and cooperation with civil society, or by conducting government consultancy and the public dissemination of knowledge. Applicants should document any prior experience within the field of knowledge exchange. Qualifications Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent in one of the disciplines of systematic theology, as well as demonstrating excellence at the highest level within the following areas:Relevant research, including academic publications at the highest international level, corresponding to the Danish higher doctoral degree, a convincing funding record, including future plans for attracting external funding, assessments of academic productions and experience of research managementEducation, including documented teaching and supervision competences as well as active commitment to the education and study environmentTalent development, including documented competences with regard to supervision and research management and commitment to the career development of junior researchers as well as the development of PhD coursesKnowledge exchange, including attracting external knowledge exchange funding strategic research funding and proactive efforts in relation to potential stakeholders in the world of research knowledge.
