Tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Psychology and Social Data Science

The Department of Psychology and the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS), Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), invite excellent candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Psychology and Social Data Science. The position is available from 01/01/23, but an earlier or (slightly) later starting date might also be negotiated. It is a joint position equally shared between the Department of Psychology (https://psychology.ku.dk/) and SODAS (https://sodas.ku.dk/).

The ideal candidate for the advertised position holds a PhD in Psychology, Social Data Science, Computational Social Science, Cognitive Science, or a related field, and has a strong academic record across these fields.

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/Center, including examinations and administration.

At the latest 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 8 August 2022, at 23:59 [CEST].
