The Department of Government at the University of Bergen wishes to recruit a tenure-track associate professor in political science specializing in the sub-field of political behavior. This is a 7-year fixed-term position, with the aim of promotion to a permanent full professor position at the end of the period. The Faculty and the Department are committed to facilitating the development of the qualifications needed for promotion within teaching, research, and dissemination for the successful applicant.
We are looking to hire an excellent early career scholar with a PhD in political science or equivalent background. The successful applicant has research plans that will benefit from data to be generated at DIGSSCORE and is expected to contribute to the scientific leadership and development of the research infrastructure(s). The candidate is expected to be able to teach and supervise at all levels at the Department, and to contribute fresh ideas on how to use data generated at DIGSSCORE in teaching.
The selected candidate is expected to live and work in the Bergen region and contribute actively to activities at the department.
Basic pedagogical training and experience in the supervision of students at the university level are normally a requirement for qualifying as Associate Professor (link). Applicants should document any completed pedagogical training. Relevant courses in combination with actual teaching experience can compensate for completed formal course(s) in teaching, skills in planning, implementation, evaluation, and development of teaching and student supervision. If you do not have such competence at the time of appointment, you will be required to fulfill such training within the tenure track period.
