Responsibilities

Applicants are expected to have a research focus in analytical philosophy of social sciences, for example, in social norms, social epistemology, social ontology, or in the philosophy of trust. In addition, applicants are expected to also be willing to participate in establishing a research group on the subject of norms and standards in the University’s emerging field Causes, Grounds, Reasons.

Applicants are also expected to have an interest in research into the normative interaction between social sciences and public policy.

The successful candidate is further expected to participate actively in the instruction of students pursuing a teacher training degree in the respective discipline.

Section 12 subsection 7 sentence 2 of the Hamburg higher education act (Hamburgisches Hochschulgesetz, HmbHG) applies.

Requirements

Additional Criteria

Applicants are expected to have international research experience and have a successful track record in acquiring external funding, in carrying out externally funded projects, and in publishing in high-quality, peer-reviewed, international publications on the philosophy of social sciences.

The University places particular emphasis on the quality of teaching and therefore requests that applicants provide details of their teaching experience and objectives. Applicants must be prepared to teach practical philosophy.

Non-German-speaking post holders are expected to acquire the language skills necessary to teach in German (Level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) within two years of commencing employment.

Junior professors have academic autonomy in their research and teaching. Applicants’ subject interests are expected to relate to topics in the area of practical philosophy.

As a University of Excellence, Universität Hamburg is one of the strongest research universities in Germany. As a flagship university in the greater Hamburg region, it nurtures innovative, cooperative contacts to partners within and outside academia. It also provides and promotes sustainable education, knowledge, and knowledge exchange locally, nationally, and internationally.

In accordance with Section 14 subsection 3 sentence 3 HmbHG, Universität Hamburg seeks to increase the proportion of women in teaching and research and encourages female academics to apply.

Junior professorships are aimed at researchers in the early stages of their career, within four years after completion of doctoral studies.

Severely disabled and disabled applicants with the same status will receive preference over equally qualified non-disabled applicants.
