Assistant professor (tenure-track) or associate professor (tenured) in the history and philosophy of the mathematical sciences

The Centre for Science Studies invites applications for the position of assistant professor (tenure-track) or associate professor (tenured). Expected starting date is July 1, 2020. We seek applicants with academic expertise in the history and philosophy of the mathematical sciences, broadly conceived to include all areas of mathematics, data science, and other computational sciences. Experience in the didactics of mathematics is welcomed, but is not a requirement.

The Centre seeks to strengthen its research profile by attracting excellent researchers. The successful candidate will be expected to take genuine interest in developing the Centre’s research in collaboration with other staff members and in applying for external research funding.

The Centre teaches philosophy and ethics of science courses to almost all bachelor students at the Faculty of Science and Technology (including students in mathematics, data science, and computer science/IT programs). The Centre also teaches a history of mathematics course, which is a requirement for students aiming to teach mathematics in Danish secondary schools. Finally, the Centre runs a Master’s Program in science studies.

The person hired will be expected to teach bachelor level courses in both (i) the history of mathematics and (ii) the philosophy and ethics of mathematics, data science, and/or computer science/IT on a regular basis. In addition, the person hired will be expected to contribute to the other teaching needs in the Centre for Science Studies, including a course on didactics of mathematics offered to math students and courses in our Masters’ program in Science Studies. Moreover, the person hired will be expected to participate in all aspects of the Centre’s activities and to be present on a daily basis.

The Centre is committed to promoting diversity and equality. We especially encourage scholars from underrepresented groups to submit their applications. The deadline for applications is December 2, 2019.

Place of work: Ny Munkegade 118, 8000 Aarhus C.
