The Hector Research Institute of Education Sciences and Psychology (HIB) of the the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen invites applications for a
Postdoctoral position (100% TV-L E13, temporarily for 3 years)
with an anticipated immediate starting date.
Our institute is one of the leading centers for empirical education sciences. Our interdisciplinary team works in a newly
renovated building close to the historic downtown of Tübingen. Here, we investigate determinants of successful teaching
and learning processes in large scale assessments and longitudinal studies. We develop quantitative and qualitative statistical
methods for education sciences. Further information can be retrieved from
The successful applicant will be working in the research project "Estimation of nonlinear effects in latent variable models under
the condition of nonnormally distributed data" (NON-NORM;
http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/de/51347) that is funded by the German Resarch Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG). In this
project, we develop latent variable models for the estimation of nonlinear relationships for clustered nonnormally distributed data
within the multilevel SEM and IRT frameworks. The scope of these models is the explanation of differential relationships between
latent variables on different data levels using plausible assumptions about variable distributions and the functional forms of the
relationships. The successful applicant will have the possibility to develop and implement new methods as well as work on its publications.
The HIB and the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen provide optimal conditions for scientific qualification, a stimulating interdisciplinary
and international research group, possibilities to further qualify in applied and methodological topics, and outstanding support for scientific
publications. An integration is possible in the graduate school LEAD
(http://www.lead.uni-tuebingen.de), the Tübingen School of Educations
(http://www.tuese.uni-tuebingen.de) - which are
both founded by the federal and state excellence initiative - or the Tübingen postdoc academy in education sciences
Besides the excellent research conditions in Tübingen, our scope is to increase the international
network and to provide options for international research exchanges. The position is located in the psychometric-statistical research and
education of the HIB and includes 4 hours of teaching per semester. A possibility for a habilitation is ensured.
The successful applicant has an excellent scientific degree (ideally a PhD) in one of the following areas: Psychology, education sciences,
mathematics, computer sciences or another area that included quantitative methods as a research topic. She or he has an interest in the
interdisciplinary application of education science and psychology. An excellent knowledge of research methods and statistics is required.
The University of Tübingen strives to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and qualified female researchers are
strongly encouraged to apply. Severely disabled applicants with essentially identical qualifications will be preferentially considered.
Applications including a cover letter, an academic CV and copies of degrees should be sent in electronic format to Prof. Dr. Augustin
Kelava, Hector-Institut für Empirische Bildungsforschung, Europastraße 6, 72072 Tübingen; E-Mail: email@example.com.
Further questions can be addressed to Prof. Kelava.
The deadline for the application is September 15, 2016.
The employment will be made by the central administration.
