The Associate Professor will be a member of the Department of Humanities within the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences.

The professorship in “Philosophy of Mind” will be the interface position that contributes to the University’s focus areas in computer science, digitalization, data modelling and simulation, and that strengthens interdisciplinary cooperation between the humanities and the sciences. The Associate Professor will acquire third-party funding, lead projects, supervise PhDs, and further develop international networks.

The Associate Professor will teach in the Bachelor and Master programmes, as well as participate in the doctoral training. In addition, individual tutoring and PhD supervision are expected and the successful candidate may be asked to fulfil specific responsibilities in the organisation of the undergraduate and postgraduate study programmes.
