The Institute of Social Sciences in the School of Educational and Social Sciences seeks to appoint a
Junior Professor (W1) for Sociology of Social Inequalities
commencing as soon as possible. The initial appointment granting temporary civil servant status will be for a period of three years and may be extended by another three years, contingent upon a positive evaluation.
Within the Bachelor's and Master's programmes, the junior professorship is to cover central areas of sociology of social inequalities in research and teaching. The successful applicant has a research focus in inequality research or in one of the areas that have a significant impact on social inequalities (education, labour market, social policy). Furthermore, experience in analysing social inequalities from an international comparative or European perspective is desired.
A prerequisite for the appointment is proven scientific excellence through peer-reviewed publications in the above-mentioned fields of work. In addition to publications in nationally and internationally recognized journals, we value experience in the acquisition and implementation of third-party funded projects. Interdisciplinary cooperation is an asset, as is an international orientation and relevant teaching experience. Contributions to the empirical research foci of the Institute of Social Sciences and the faculty profile "Participation and Education" are expected. Since the Universities of Bremen and Oldenburg are linked by a cooperation agreement, active collaboration is expected in this area as well.
Further prerequisites for employment are a university degree, pedagogical aptitude and the capacity to conduct research at the highest level, as demonstrated by an outstanding dissertation. If a candidate was employed as a research associate or research assistant before or after obtaining his or her doctorate, the total period of doctoral studies and employment must not exceed six years.
In order to increase the proportion of women, female applicants with equivalent qualifications will be given preferential consideration. We also welcome applications from candidates with severe disabilities and give priority to these candidates in case of equal merit.
Please submit applications (including a CV, copies of academic transcripts and degree certificates, a list of courses taught as well as a list of publications and external grants) by 20.02.2020 both digitally (PDF to dekanatjtt.fk1@unhgyrxi-oa3ztldenburrpt+g.de) and in paper to Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, to the attention of the Dean of School I, 26111 Oldenburg.
