We are hiring: lecturer/postdoc in German Politics & Political Sociology

JGU Campus MainzWho we are
A large unit at the Department of Political Science at JGU Mainz currently comprising four lecturers.
What we are looking for
a new colleague sharing our passion for quantitative Political Sociology, who has experience teaching at the university level and is ready to become an integral part of our team. They should have completed their doctorate by October 2020, or should be within a year of completing it.
What we offer
a postdoc (EG 13 EV-L full time) position for two years initially, with a view to a further extension. We support and expect your integration into national and international research networks, and JGU has a range of additional programs in place to support postdocs. Some of the initial funding for the post is through the German Hochschulpakt, resulting in a teaching load of 6 SWS (three courses per semester). Teaching is chiefly in the fields of German Politics, Political Sociology, and quantitative methods. If you wish to teach in other subfields to broaden your portfolio, we will try to accommodate you. Most of our courses need to be taught in German, so a good command of the language (B1/2 or better) is required.

For further information and informal inquiries, please contact Jasmin Fitzpatrick, fitzpatrick@politik.uni-mainz.de, or Kai Arzheimer, arzheimer@politik.uni-mainz.de

Please email your application (including your CV, list of publications, and teaching portfolio) to Kai Arzheimer, Institut für Politikwissenschaft der Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, arzheimer@politik.uni-mainz.de no later than June 12, 2020.
