The position

The Tenure Track position is dedicated to research and teaching on the fundamentals and current methodological developments in the field of qualitative social research. It focuses on the application and ongoing refinement of innovative methods. Sound knowledge of interpretative, hermeneutic and/or reconstructive social research is desirable. The qualitative social research tradition, influenced by Viennese sociology, is centered on addressing authentic societal concerns. Within this framework, our research involves practical studies that integrate societal diagnoses and sociological theories. By combining traditional approaches with contemporary qualitative research methods, we establish a robust foundation for generating innovative and practically applicable insights in the field of qualitative social research. Continuous progress in interpretive methodologies plays a pivotal role in this context. Research findings are disseminated through scholarly publications that not only focus on methodological foundations but also facilitate the development of interpretively oriented research projects. This progressive approach is evident in the active involvement of department members in advancing Grounded Theory, visual methodologies and methods, as well as biographical research.
