The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Sociology starting September 1, 2024. This is an open position for a junior sociologist with broad disciplinary training, openness towards cross-disciplinary engagements and empirically grounded research. Since the Department was established as an integrated sociology and anthropology department, familiarity with both disciplines is an advantage. 

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to teaching the fundamentals of the discipline and methods courses as well as courses in their area of expertise to an interdisciplinary international student body. They should be active in research that complements and extends the subject areas currently represented in the Department. Possible thematic fields may include but are not limited to political sociology, digitalization, and environmental issues. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience of teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate level. 

The job provides excellent research opportunities in an intellectually vivid and stimulating environment. The department is dedicated to interdisciplinary research and is known for its highly motivated and diverse students and faculty. Its integration of the two disciplines is reflected in both teaching and research, and its graduate programs are based on empirical research and methodologies that foster a critical global perspective. 

Your qualifications
