The School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University invites applications for the position of associate professor of aesthetic programming based at the Department of Digital Design and Information Studies.

The appointment is full-time and tenured and begins on 1 September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The School of Communication and Culture is committed to diversity and welcomes applications from all qualified applicants regardless of their personal background.

The position
The Department of Digital Design and Information Studies is one of the strongest academic IT environments in Europe and attracts visiting scholars and PhD students from all over the world. We focus on information technology as a feature of people’s everyday lives and futures. Read more at http://cc.au.dk/ddinf.

At the department, aesthetic programming research explores how the theory and practice of computer programming relates to digital art and aesthetics, and critical and political aspects of software and computational culture. The successful applicant is expected to research aesthetic programming within these contexts and to participate in consolidating and expanding the field of aesthetic programming in terms of both teaching and research.

In sum, we are seeking an innovative and dedicated applicant who will strengthen the research and teaching profiles of the department nationally and internationally as well as contribute to Aarhus University’s core activities in the areas of research, teaching and supervision, talent development and knowledge exchange.

Research
The Department of Digital Design and Information Studies emphasises the significance of high-quality research, interdisciplinarity, collaboration, outreach and engagement with society. Research and teaching at the department are interdisciplinary and focus among other things on digital aesthetics and computational culture, software studies, interaction design and technologies, data studies and digital transformation.

Accordingly, we are looking for applicants with a strong research profile and track record in researching the theory and practice of computer programming within the fields of digital art and aesthetics, software studies and computational culture. We are particularly interested in applicants who have had an international stay at one or more internationally recognised research institution.

The successful applicant will be expected to play a part in developing research in the field of aesthetic programming. The successful applicant will be expected to publish original peer-reviewed research internationally as well as make scholarly contributions to developments within the field. The successful applicant will also be expected to contribute to research initiatives in relation to the field of aesthetic programming and the research community at the department in terms of new collaborative research projects with internal and external partners and external research funding organisations.

Teaching and supervision
At Aarhus University, teaching is regarded as being as important as research, and we believe it is important to consider carefully what we do as teachers and to be skilful in the practice of our profession. The successful applicant will be expected to take part in the department’s teaching and supervision activities and to teach and supervise on the department’s Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD degree programmes, particularly on the degree programme in digital design with a focus on aesthetic programming and related fields. Please refer to our programme descriptions and indicate in your application which courses you could teach: Digital Design Bachelor’s degree programme, Digital Design Master’s degree programme. The successful applicant will also be expected to apply innovative teaching methods.

The successful applicant will also be expected to contribute to the ongoing development of curricula and the degree programme(s) within the field of aesthetic programming, and, in this connection, experience of degree programme and curriculum development at universities or similar institutions will be an advantage.

Given the international focus of the degree programmes, the successful applicant should be prepared to teach in English as well as Danish.

Talent development
We are seeking applicants who have supervised students at both BA and MA levels.
The successful applicant will be expected to supervise students at both Bachelor’s and Master’s levels as well as supervise and help develop the careers of early-career researchers. The successful applicant will also be expected to recruit and supervise PhD students and participate in the development and implementation of PhD courses within the field.

Knowledge exchange
It is expected that the successful applicant will engage in knowledge exchange, such as research collaboration with private companies and civil society actors, government consultancy, and the public dissemination of knowledge.

The successful applicant will have excellent opportunities to engage in relevant collaborative initiatives with partners inside and outside Aarhus University.
