As a professional school, the Hertie School targets faculty members that have a strong commitment to high-quality teaching. Our goal is to help students grow intellectually in a professional, research-intensive environment, characterized by public debate and engagement.
The Hertie School is recruiting a scholar for an early career position in the field of educational governance. The professorship is dedicated to the organization and administration of education and training systems, especially their capacity, performance and reform needs, ranging from the elementary to tertiary levels, and with a focus on policy-relevant research on how to improve governance. Activities should include research on the shared role of state, school governing bodies, teachers, parents and other stakeholders in the education process. The successful candidate will teach in the School‘s master‘s, PhD and executive programs. The incumbent is expected to contribute to public debates on educational policy, and reach out to policymakers and agencies supporting governance reforms in Germany and beyond.
The recruitment committee will consider profiles with a disciplinary background in the social sciences (e.g. sociology, educational sciences, economics, political science). The position is full-time, for up to six years, with a mid-term evaluation, and may be extended. Significant research and start-up funding is available. The expected start date is 1 September 2017.
Applicants should hold, or expect to receive, a doctoral degree before the position begins. We are interested in candidates with a demonstrated capacity for independent research at the highest levels in their discipline, either through an established record of publication in top outlets or, for early career candidates, unpublished writing samples. The Hertie School seeks faculty with a commitment to intensive, high-quality teaching and innovative research of potential interest to the international scholarly community and policy-makers. Candidates are expected to show full commitment to working in an interdisciplinary, international environment with English as the language of instruction and operation.
We offer an internationally competitive salary in line with the candidate‘s qualifications, excellent working conditions, significant start-up funding, a vibrant research environment, and a lively community of policy debate in the political heart of Germany.
The Hertie School particularly encourages applications from female scholars and from candidates with international backgrounds.
The deadline for submission of applications is 8 January 2017. The Hertie School will review applications that include a letter of motivation and a current curriculum vitae (publication list, degrees earned, if applicable: positions held, teaching experience, research projects, awards received), two writing samples and, if applicable, teaching evaluations or any other evidence of teaching. Candidates should include three letters of recommendation from professors who are familiar with their work.
