The associate professorship begins on 1 January 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The aim of this position is to strengthen the focus on the theory and methodology of aesthetics and culture with regard to the interplay of cultural, aesthetic and digital dimensions of society in a primarily contemporary perspective.

The successful applicant is expected to contribute actively to the academic and collegial activities relating to the department’s degree programmes.

Teaching and supervision
The successful applicant must be willing to participate in multidisciplinary teaching and research activities with regard to the interplay of cultural, aesthetic and digital dimensions of society primarily from a contemporary perspective. Applicants must be qualified to perform teaching duties in both culturally and aesthetically oriented subjects, specifically on the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in aesthetics and culture and the Bachelor’s supplementary subject in aesthetic communication. Please consult the academic regulations for a more detailed description of the degree programmes and individual courses. Applicants should specify and explain their qualifications to teach aesthetics and culture, outlining their qualifications in specific courses rather than in all the courses conducted by the department.
Applicants with experience of project-oriented, interdisciplinary and team-based teaching, and of participating in the development of new teaching modules and degree programmes, as well as outreach-related activities, will be preferred.
