|Successful candidates will be expected to teach all fields of sociology and must have demonstrated accomplishments in sociology either with a specialization in sociology of working worlds or in sociology of social policy that include aspects of the digital transformation or work. Specialization may be stronger in one area but successful candidates need to have demonstrated substantive research and teaching in more than one area of scholarship. Active participation in the DFG funded Graduate School „Innovation Society Today: The reflexive creation of novelty“ is desirable as is experience in successfully raising external funds (Drittmittel). Candidates whose research can connect to the department of sociology’s research areas („innovation and society“, „knowledge and society“ and „space and society“) while adding expertise in the areas of sociology of work and social policy are preferred. Further on, an active participation in the „Fördernetzwerk Interdisziplinäre Sozialpolitikforschung“ of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs is expected. Candidates are expected to collaborate with the Einstein Center Digital Future and at least one School of Sciences and Engineering at TU Berlin. Candidates are also expected to contribute substantially to the university’s strategic plan. Candidates are required to teach courses to sociology majors in both the BA and MA programs „Sociology and Technology Studies“ („Soziologie technikwissenschaftlicher Richtung“), as well as in the minors Architecture, Planning and Computer Sciences. Teaching is also required in the MA program „Digitalization“ of the Einstein Center Digital Future. The successful candidate is expected to teach courses in the German and English language within two years after being appointed to the position. In addition, candidates have to contribute to the department of sociology’s other teaching and administrational requirements and be actively involved in academic self-government.|
