At the Department of Culture and Learning, Aalborg University, an associate professor position is available as of August 1st 2021. This is a full-time permanent position that includes both research and teaching activities

Job description

For appointment as an associate professor, the ideal candidate is expected to:

  • teach, supervise and examine students in relevant modules in bachelor's and master's degree programmes in English including within related programs such as Language and International Studies, Culture Studies, and possibly others. The candidate is asked to highlight any such teaching qualifications
  • conduct research and publish research products at a high-quality level in internationally recognised venues
  • participate in external research networks and partnerships, and in doing so create and maintain productive relationships with researchers of different research and cultural backgrounds
  • engage in knowledge collaboration related to the position's scientific portfolio
  • contribute in a positive and constructive manner to the overall activities and working environment of the Department of Culture and Learning.

In terms of research, the position includes research at an international level within American literature and culture, and applicants are expected to have research experience within at least one of the following areas:

  • American literature, particularly contemporary authors and movements
  • How American literature and culture flow together in a feedback loop
  • A specialization in critical race theory, gender theory, and/or queer theory will be preferred

In relation to research, the applicant is expected to document:

  • experience, competences and achievements demonstrating the applicant's ability to deliver the highest-quality research
  • a research plan that harmonizes with the Department’s strategy and shows the applicant's plans for developing new research products and projects
  • experience, competences and achievements demonstrating the candidate's ability to engage in and develop external (national and international) partnerships
  • experience, competences and achievements demonstrating the applicant's ability to engage in relevant research partnerships
  • any experience in obtaining external funding or experience in engaging in externally funded projects.

In relation to teaching, the applicant is expected to document:

  • experience, competences and achievements demonstrating the ability to provide the highest-level instruction within the area of the English programme, with various pedagogical considerations and approaches, including supervision, conducting seminars, lectures etc.
  • At Aalborg University our learning approach is problem-based learning (PBL). Documented experience with this learning approach is therefore preferred but is not a prerequisite.

The applicant is expected to document the ability to teach, supervise and assess both written and oral presentations in Danish. Alternatively, the ideal applicant is expected to acquire relevant linguistic competence within an agreed timeframe.  

The position is primarily affiliated with the research group Literature, Media, and Society (LMS) that has a range of research interests within the following main areas:

  • The interactions between literature, media, and society broadly conceived
  • The aesthetic and cultural expressions of literature and media

In terms of personal qualities, the applicant is expected to have solid cooperative abilities, and the ability to establish and maintain productive relationships with researchers of various research and cultural backgrounds. A national as well as an international network is thus preferred.
