Professur für Digital Humanities

Die Kollegin Claudine Moulin aus Trier macht mich auf folgende Ausschreibung aufmerksam, die eventuell durch das Raster der Fachzuordnungen fallen könnte:


The Faculty of Language, Literature and Media Studies at the University of Trier, Germany, wishes to fill the position of a Professorship of Digital Humanities (W 2 pay grade as per BBesG) at the next possible opportunity.

willing to take on a management role in the Trier Centre for Digital Humanities.

Virtual Research Environments, particularly as applied to Digital Lexicography, Editorial Philology and Primary sources) as well as relevant experience in the acquisition and implementation of research projects and funding proposals. Experience of teaching and substantial knowledge of the planning and development of modularized teaching programmes (in order to implement an MA in Digital Humanities) as well as in the area of further education is essential.

Excellent knowledge of English as well as knowledge of further modern European languages is required, as is a sound knowledge of the National and European Digital Humanities research landscape. The willingness to cooperate with the Field of Computational Linguistics is expected.

The State of Rhineland-Palatinate and the University of Trier support a concept of extensive student supervision and expect its teaching staff to maintain a high profile.
