Associate professor or full professor in mathematics education as leader of the National Centre for Development of Mathematics Education (NCUM)
The Danish School of Education at Aarhus University invites applications for an associate professorship or a full professorship in mathematics education. Applicants must indicate clearly which of the two positions they are applying for.
The position involves leadership of the newly established National Centre for Development of Mathematics Education (NCUM) (with this leadership amounting to 50% of the position until the end of 2023); as well as research related to curriculum studies, development studies and teaching practices.
The position is a full-time, permanent position that begins on 1 June 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.
It is important that the successful applicant takes part in the daily activities of the department, including both teaching and supervising. Since the department is situated in both Aarhus and Copenhagen, the successful applicant should expect a certain amount of travel between these two cities. In relation to the leadership of the national centre, some amount of travelling around the country must also be expected.
The National Centre for Development of Mathematics Education (NCUM)
The NCUM reflects the vision that Danish children and young people – from kindergarten through upper-secondary school and vocational training – should have access to enthusiastic, ambitious and contemporary mathematics education. This ambition requires a unified and long-term effort from national practitioners as well as researchers covering the entire field ranging from daycare, kindergarten, primary and secondary school to upper-secondary school, vocational training, university colleges and universities. The NCUM provides a unique opportunity to establish new collaborations on mathematics education in and across educational levels. The primary task of the NCUM is to create a solid, broad network providing effective communication, as well as offering facilities for project and resource development in relation to mathematics education.
Together with University College Copenhagen, the University of Copenhagen, VIA University College and Aalborg University, the School of Education at Aarhus University is part of a consortium responsible for establishing and managing the NCUM. Although the director of the NCUM is employed by the Danish School of Education, the centre is run in close cooperation with University College Copenhagen, which employs the deputy director of the centre, who is responsible for ensuring close collaboration with daycare, school, vocational training and not least social-educator and teacher-training colleges. The NCUM is physically located at the School of Education, Aarhus University, Emdrup Campus, where both the director and deputy director will be based alongside the two other employees of the centre (an activity manager and a communication
