Profession: Assistant/Associate Professor
Venue: Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University
Date of employment: January 1, 2021
Application deadline: December 1, 2020
Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University, invites applications for a position as assistant/associate professor of University Teaching and Learning from January 1, 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. After a period (normally no less than 3 years), the assistant professor, following agreement and individual positive assessment, will transfer to a position as an associate professor.
The Department produces research at a high international level that feeds into our educational programmes, while simultaneously leveraging our research to impact social, economic and political change. A realization of this objective requires that research and educational activities are based on openness to the outside world, collaboration, inclusiveness and knowledge sharing. The tension embodied in the name of the Department, between people and technology, is a key feature of the Department's research.
Responsibilities and tasks
The Assistant Professor/Associate Professor’s duties will primarily include research, including obligations with regard to publication and attracting external research income, and research-based teaching within university pedagogy including the Certificate of University Teaching and Learning program. It is expected that the appointee will contribute to the development of the recently established Research Centre for Problem-oriented Project Learning.
Applicants must hold a PhD degree within higher education studies or equivalent.
