The Faculty3: Linguistics and Information Science invites applications for a
Junior Professorship (W 1):
Science Communication in the Digital Age
with Tenure Track (W 2)
for the Institute of Intercultural Communication. The position is open from October 2020.
This professorship is one of five professorships the Stiftung Universität Hildesheim has been granted by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States. It specifically targets researchers at an early stage in their academic career.
The candidate's research will focus on the analysis of current practices in all areas of science communication. This has gained considerable importance in recent years in light of the evolution towards an information and knowledge society, digital change and an increasing emphasis on public communication. A further object of research is the growing internationalization of all scientific disciplines as a direct result of the digitization and the challenges this poses to both internal and external scientific communication. These challenges include the translation of terminological and epistemological knowledge into different languages and their use in Lingua Franca contexts as well as an awareness in terms of culturally determined academic traditions.
The successful candidate will teach in the BA program, International Information Management, particularly in the areas of
Linguistics and Intercultural Communication, and the MA programme International Information Management - Linguistics and Intercultural
Communication. The languages of instruction and subjects of investigation are German and English. Emphasis is placed on German as a scientific language.
In addition, the candidate is required to help qualify young researchers for science communication in a society characterized by diversity and prepare them for the presentation of their research findings.
Candidates are further expected to integrate their work into the collaborative research environment of the faculty and to cooperate with colleagues from the Center for Digital Change;
the Center for Diversity, Democracy and Inclusion in Education; the Centrum für Lehrerbildung und Bildungsforschung and the Graduate Center.
