Tenure-Track Assistant Professorship in Political Science & Social Data Science

The Department of Political Science and the Center for Social Data Science (SODAS), Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), invites excellent candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Political Science & Social Data Science. The position is available from 1 January 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.

It is a joint position equally shared between the Department of Political Science and SODAS but the assistant professor will be employed by the Department of Political Science. The ideal candidate for the advertised position holds a PhD in Political Science, or related field, and has a strong record in applying data science/computational methods to answer questions related to politics and digital communication.

A tenure-track assistant professorship is a six-year, fixed-term academic position involving both research and teaching. The successful candidate will be obliged to complete a teacher-training course designed especially for assistant professors, and will be expected to be able to take part in all the activities of the Department, including examinations and administration.

Approximately six months before the end of the six-year period as tenure-track assistant professor, a committee set up by the Dean will assess whether the assistant professor can be considered for promotion to a tenured position as associate professor.

The closing date for applications is 23:59, 8 August 2022 (CEST)
