Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Archaeology

The Saxo Institute, Faculty of Humanities, Copenhagen University (UCPH), Denmark, invites applicants for a tenure-track assistant professorship in Archaeology to be filled by the 1st of September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Position description
We are looking for an outstanding junior researcher with an innovative mind-set and intellectual curiosity to strengthen and complement the research profile of Archaeology at the Saxo Institute. Our research group comprises the fields of Classical, Nordic, and contemporary archaeology, and its research focuses on visual culture, landscape, technology and production, archaeo-metallurgy, textile studies, and archaeological theory and epistemology in the humanities. Methodologically, fieldwork, excavations, surveys, experimental archaeology, and museum studies form an integral part of our research. We aim to attract an international top-talent to our ambitious and collaborative environment.

The Saxo Institute is dedicated to the study of human societies past and present, with degree programs ranging from History to Ethnology, Archeology, Classical Languages and Migration Studies. With some 1400 students and a staff of 100 employees, the Institute offers a variety of research and library facilities, servicing a vibrant community of tenured scholars, graduate students, visiting researchers and externally funded projects. The institute also hosts a range of leading research centres and externally funded research projects.

About Tenure-track
A tenure-track assistant professorship is a six-year, fixed-term academic position involving both research and teaching. The successful candidate will be obliged to complete a teacher-training course designed especially for assistant professors, and will be expected to be able to take part in all the activities of the Department, including examinations and administration.

Approximately six months before the end of the six-year tenure-track period, a committee set up by the Dean will assess whether the assistant professor can be considered for promotion to a tenured position as associate professor.

Qualification requirements

The tenure track assistant professor must have an academic standing showing internationally competitive research, and/or have internationally recognized potential to make a future impact being able to demonstrate her/his potential for impact in the form of publications in internationally renowned, peer-reviewed journals. In particular, we are looking for an applicant who can demonstrate a capacity for working across the fields of material remains, iconography, textual sources, and reception studies. A candidate capable of documenting research integrated fieldwork expertise will be preferred.

The successful applicant must hold a PhD degree in archaeology. Any teaching and/or supervision experience should also be documented. Classical and Prehistoric Archaeology are two separate study programs, collaborating on introductory, theoretical and methodological courses. We expect the tenure track assistant professor to be able to teach courses in Classical Archaeology as well as archaeology courses at a more general level.

The applicant is also expected to provide a statement of his/her academic and pedagogical approaches to university teaching.

Applicants are encouraged to read the University guidelines for teaching portfolio when appointing staff at the UCPH https://employment.ku.dk/faculty/recruitment-process/job-application-portfolio/
