with an affiliation to the Chair of Experimental Medicine I. The professorship is to be filled by the earliest possible starting date for an initial period of six years. FAU offers a long-term perspective of a permanent appointment to a W2 professorship if the requirements of the tenure evaluation are met.

We seek to appoint an expert who will develop an internationally visible research profile. The duties of the professorship include research on cell plasticity in the interaction between tumour cells and their environment. Candidates should demonstrate methodological expertise in the display and/or targeted manipulation of such dynamic interactions in various model systems of primary tumours and metastases (e.g. mouse and organ culture models), as well as experience in cutting-edge cellular and molecular technologies (e.g. scSeq, CRISPR/Cas9 screening, epigenomics). The aim of the professorship is to strengthen the research focus areas at the Faculty of Medicine in the fields of tumour and inflammation research both in existing (mainly TRR 305) and planned research networks.

Successful candidates demonstrate excellent academic achievements in research at the highest international standards. You have substantial research experience as well as experience in managing research projects and in raising third-party funding. A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as teaching experience are prerequisites. The position also requires additional postdoctoral qualifications.

Within the context of the High-Tech Agenda Bavaria, the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) invites applications for

6 Open Topic Full Professorships (W3) for Digital Humanities and Digital Social Studies

at the newly established Department of Digital Humanities and Social Studies. The professorships are full-time and permanent positions to be filled by the earliest possible starting date.

We seek to appoint leading experts with an internationally visible research and teaching profile who have a creative mindset and expertise in the following areas of digital humanities and social studies:

  • Research-oriented data and knowledge management
  • Computing images and objects in cultural heritage
  • Computing text and language
  • Analysing geo-social data
  • Human computer interaction
  • Governing data economies

The newly appointed professors will teach and conduct research into the development of innovative digital methods in and for the digital humanities, cultural studies and social studies, and the analysis of digital transformation. They will focus in particular on developing concepts for dealing with structurally complex units of data with no clear semiotic features at all stages of the data lifecycle; on enabling computer-assisted analysis of images and objects and reflection on visual culture (e.g. critical machine vision, blurring); on developing interpretable AI processes for text analysis such as automated and semi-automated processes for hermeneutic text interpretation and on connecting neural models to formal means of knowledge representation; on using new data sources such as big social and geosocial data, social media data or real-time data to analyse processes and structures in society, and on investigating the transformation of relationships in society as a result of these new readability trends; on the socially responsible design of user interfaces and interfaces during the system development process in consideration of the fact that usability of systems has a decisive influence on whether and how successfully people participate in partial systems in society and in recognition of the fact that systems influence people’s behaviour; on critical analysis of political regulation and design of data economies and datafied societies.

The professorships will be based in a newly established department. The department focuses on the opportunities and challenges of datafication and algorithmisation of social and cultural phenomena (objects and immaterial concepts) as demonstrated by methods for analysing and processing data and data-based artefacts and in the assessment of the consequences in the real world of ‘culture and society’ and in academia in the sense of an ‘epistemological transformation’. It links expertise in algorithms and other technical aspects with epistemological, historical, socio-critical and normative-ethical expertise in the field of the humanities, social sciences and cultural studies.

FAU seeks to appoint outstanding, internationally visible researchers (publications, networks) who strive to maintain close links with the established disciplines in the fields of the humanities, cultural sciences and social sciences but who also take an interdisciplinary approach, continuing and expanding the already close collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering (Department of Computer Science) and the HTA Department of Data Science located in the Faculty of Sciences. Candidates are expected to have successfully raised third-party funding, preferably within the context of collaborative interdisciplinary projects.

The Department’s strength in research should be reflected in the continued development of the degree programmes taught partly in English (Bachelor/Master of Arts in Digital Humanities) and in explicitly research-oriented teaching as well as in changes to doctoral degrees.

The innovative potential of the department extends to the establishment of open structures of governance involving all status groups in the Department Board, the dynamic distribution of teaching capacities, a pool of specialised administrative capacities and a needs-oriented approach to allocating resources, moving away from the traditional structure of a Chair.

The successful candidates will be expected to participate in shaping the Department’s profile as well as being involved in shaping and developing the new transfer and support-oriented Competence Unit Research Data/Information (CU-ReDI). The professors should seize the excellent opportunities offered by our close interdisciplinary links to launch highly competitive collaborative projects.

Successful candidates show an excellent academic track record in research and teaching at the highest international standards. You have substantial research experience abroad and/or international cooperations as well as experience in managing research projects and in raising third-party funding. A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and pertinent teaching experience are prerequisites. Candidates who are able and willing to teach in both English and German are desired. The position also requires additional postdoctoral qualifications. These should be in the form of a habilitation (postdoctoral thesis) or equivalent academic qualifications. You may also have acquired these necessary qualifications in a non-university context or through a junior faculty position (for example as W1 Professor or Assistant Professor).

FAU expects applicants to demonstrate academic leadership, engage in early career development and to drive FAU’s strategic agenda. FAU pursues a policy of intense student mentoring and therefore expects its teaching staff to be present during lecture periods.
