This is a fixed-term contract in accordance with Section 2 of the academic fixed-term labor contract act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, WissZeitVG). The term is fixed until 31 December 2023. The position calls for 39 hours per week. This position is also suitable for part time employment.
Duties include academic services in the project named above. Research associates may also pursue independent research and further academic qualifications.
This is a postdoc position, which is part of a research project that is supported by the Landesforschungsförderung Hamburg. The goal is to develop a Graduate College for research devoted to the digital transformation of law. The present project deals in particular with fundamental questions of legal analytics, the role of the media of law, possibilities and limits of personalisation of law, the implementation and effectiveness of law through digital technologies, alternative legal regimes through digitisation and, in the sense of a cross-cutting perspective, with teaching and learning in digital transformation (details on the sub-areas that are not conclusive can be found on the ZeRdiT homepage, http://uhh.de/rw-zerdit-en). The position supports the spokespersons of the college in the application process, the support of the fellows, the coordination of activities with the Albrecht Mendelssohn Bartholdy Graduate School of Law. At the same time, the postdoc will pursue their own academic qualifications, preferably in the subject area of the college.
A university degree in a relevant subject plus doctorate. An excellent doctorate is expected, apart from the ability for interdisciplinary work which should ideally already be proven by the applicant’s doctorate thesis, especially in an area characterized by the digitisation process. We also expect some teaching experience, good communication skills (also in an international context) and good conceptual and organizational skills, which are of particular importance in the application process. Good command of the English language is also essential.
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg promotes equal opportunity. As women are currently underrepresented in this job category at Universität Hamburg according to the evaluation conducted under the Hamburg act on gender equality (Hamburgisches Gleichstellungsgesetz, HambGleiG), we encourage women to apply for this position. Equally qualified and suitable female applicants will receive preference.
Qualified disabled candidates or applicants with equivalent status receive preference in the application process.
