Position overview

ANU has the widest range of research and teaching programs in languages of any tertiary institution in Australia. We seek to appoint a scholar to broaden and further strengthen the teaching and research profile of German Studies. The appointee will be expected to bring expertise and intellectual distinction to our research profile and have an active research agenda in any area of German language and culture, although expertise in 19th to 21st-century studies may be an advantage. The School is seeking a candidate able to teach and develop German language classes at all levels, including thematic courses in their area of specialization, and to contribute to the recruitment and supervision of honours and higher degree research students. The appointee should be active in professional service within ANU, and nationally and internationally in their relevant discipline/s, as well as in the broader community, acting as a strong ambassador for the German program, School, and university.

The scholar appointed will be located in the ANU School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics, and will work within the German Studies Program, while collaborating with other areas across the School and University, depending on their area of expertise. The successful candidate will contribute to the education and research aims of the College of Arts and Social Sciences. They will be positioned for potential intellectual cooperation with scholars across the University, for example the Cultures of Screen, Performance and Print Network, the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, the Centre for Digital Humanities Research, the Humanities Research Centre, and the ANU Centre for European Studies.

The ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS) is one of seven Colleges at ANU. The College, which is structured into two main research schools, offers degrees in more than 20 discipline areas and excels in research across the creative arts, humanities and social sciences. The College has a substantial international research presence and is a major source of national policy advice. Our academic staff are internationally recognised for their research, and 57 are members of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, the Academy of the Social Sciences of Australia, or both. We also host 13 Australian Research Council Future Fellows and three ARC Laureates. A hub of vibrant activity, we host more than 270 lectures, concerts and exhibitions each year, most of which are open to the public. Our students, staff and graduates come from more than 60 nations, bringing a diversity of perspective to campus life.
