A Professorship in Gender Studies in Computer Science

August 6, 2012 at 8:34 am Leave a comment

First time I’ve ever heard of a position like this!  How cool!  I found it a little weird to say, “and please do research in embedded systems, too,” but any attention is better than none.

The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Freiburg, with its Departments of
Computer Science and Microsystems Engineering, invites applications for a

Junior Professorship (W1) for Gender Studies in Computer Science

The prospective candidate will represent the area of “Gender Studies in Computer
Science”, at the interface between the fields Computer Science and the humanities.
Candidates should have earned a PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline
and have extensive experience in the areas of gender studies as related to MINT
subjects (Mathematics, Informatics, Science and Technology). Relevant research
areas include e.g. gender aspects and didactics in Computer Science as well as
Embedded Systems and Society. The ability and willingness to collaborate with
members of the faculty in Computer Science and Gender Studies is essential.
Teaching in Computer Science and in the Master’s Program Gender Studies is
expected. Candidates should have an exceptional aptitude for academic research, as
evidenced by excellence in the research leading to the award of their PhD. A Junior
Professorship requires the establishment of an independent research and teaching
program. This non-tenure-track position is limited to four years with a possible
extension of an additional two years.

The University of Freiburg is an equal opportunity employer and is dedicated to
facilitating the dual demands of family and career. We explicitly encourage women to
apply for the post. Given equivalent qualifications, preference in hiring will be
extended to handicapped applicants.

Applications, including a CV, publication list, and a description of research interests,
should be submitted before September 22, 2012 to the Dean of the Faculty of
Engineering, Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Georges-Koehler-Allee 101, 79110
Freiburg (www.tf.uni-freiburg.de). Please request an application form from the
Dean’s office and send an electronic version of your application to dekanat@tf.unifreiburg.de.
