The Department of Educational Sociology at the Danish School of Education at Aarhus University invites applications for an associate professorship or professorship in social pedagogy.

The associate professorship/professorship is a permanent position which begins on 1 August 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The position is based at DPU campus Emdrup/Copenhagen or Aarhus. It is important that the successful applicant takes part in the daily activities of the department, including both teaching and supervising.

The successful applicant will be expected to strengthen research activity and output as well as contributing to the high profile of social pedagogy research at Aarhus University.

The position

Social pedagogy is part of the Master’s degree programme in educational sociology, which combines elements from classical sociology and pedagogy with empirical studies of education and pedagogy for the entire lifespan (daycare, schools and adult education). The Department of Educational Sociology covers a broad range of research interests (daycare, second-chance schools, gerontology, university and broader forms of adult education, the history of education and schooling); and teaches the degree programme in educational sociology (theory, research methods, pedagogy, education, social pedagogy and leadership and organisation). The department cooperates closely with alumni from the Danish School of Education. Additionally, the department is strongly committed to attracting national and international external funding.

The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to Aarhus University’s core activities in the areas of research, education, talent development and knowledge exchange, and to provide academic leadership relating to research, education and academic development.
