The Department of Educational Sociology at the Danish School of Education at Aarhus University invites applications for an assistant/associate professorship in learning, management and organisation with a special focus on organisation and leadership in primary and lower-secondary schools (Folkeskolen) and daycare centres (dagtilbud).
The assistant professorship is a full-time, three-year training position which begins on 1 August 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. The associate professorship is a permanent position which begins on 1 August 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The position is based at DPU campus Aarhus. It is important that the successful applicant takes part in the daily activities of the department, including both teaching and supervising. Since the department is situated in both Aarhus and Copenhagen, the successful applicant should expect some travel activity between Aarhus and Copenhagen.
The position in learning, management and organisation focuses in particular on the management and organisation of primary and lower-secondary education, focusing on learning processes in children, young people and staff, for example in professional learning communities. The applicant is expected to be able to use both quantitative and qualitative methods. Emphasis is placed on creating research results that are relevant for schools and daycare centres as well as for professional stakeholders, especially school leaders and daycare managers.
The learning, management and organisation programme is part of the Master’s degree programme in educational sociology, which combines elements from sociology and educational theory with empirical studies of leadership in educational institutions. The Department of Educational Sociology is strongly committed to the attraction of national and international external funding, and the successful applicant should also expect to take part in research activities in collaboration with the National Centre for School Research (NCS).
