OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Department III of the University of Trier

- Classical Studies, History, Political Science, History of Art –

seeks to fill the position of a

W2-level professorship for Digital Historical Heritage (m/f/d)

(Digitales Historisches Erbe)

At the University of Trier, digital historical heritage is a profile-forming feature. The subjects working in the field of digital historical heritage are brought together in the TRANSMARE Institute, the Research Center Europe (FZE) and in the research areas Roman Archaeology and Maritime Antiquity (FoRuM) as well as Cultural Heritage Studies (CHeST). There are connections with the relevant professional societies and initiatives (AG Digitale Geschichts-wissenschaften des Historikerverbandes, NFDI etc.).

The task of this cross-sectional professorship is the research and development of new digital methods at the intersection of the historical, art historical and archaeological subjects as well as computer science and their representation in teaching in the German language (including in the master's program Digital Public History). The position holder is expected to work on historical, art historical and archaeological issues in the analytical combination of analogue tradition with digital methods and to design and develop or further develop tools or applications. Willingness and ability for interdisciplinary cooperation with the above-mentioned disciplines are required. Cooperation with digital projects such as the Dynamic Interactive Maritime Atlas of History to be developed within the framework of a long-term DFG project is expected.

The position holder should have his/her own research interests in the areas of computer-based historical simulation and historical geography. In addition to the study of history, profound knowledge in software engineering and project management as well as geoinformatics and simulation technology are indispensable, as well as experience in the conception, acquisition and realization of relevant third-party funded projects. In addition to proven historical and informatic competence, a theoretical orientation towards central questions of digital history as well as sound experience in interdisciplinary work with subjects related to history and informatics are required.

The official tasks result from the Higher Education Act of Rhineland-Palatinate (§ 48 HochSchG – Higher Education Act).

Applicants must meet the general requirements according to public services law and the Higher Education Act of Rhineland-Palatinate (§ 49 HochSchG – Higher Education Act), especially regarding didactic aptitude and exceptional academic ability and achievements.

The State of Rhineland-Palatinate and Trier University are committed to intensive personal mentoring for students and, therefore, expect strong presence of teaching staff at the University. Disabled candidates with appropriate qualifications will be given priority.

Trier University aims to increase the quota of women in research and teaching, and encourages female academics to apply.
