Tallinn University (TLU) seeks an internationally recognized leader in
digital humanities or digital culture studies to become an ERA Chair
Professor in Cultural Data Analytics.

Deadline: August 26th 2019 (including)
Position starts in Autumn or early Winter 2019
Tenure: The position will be tenured.
All details about the application process and what documents are needed can
be found here: https://www.tlu.ee/en/professor-cultural-data-analytics

Position includes excellent remuneration package; secured substantial
research funds for the first 4 years; the possibility to create own
research team and an Open Lab, cooperation networks with several external
cultural and media institutions, strong institutional support from the

Profile of the candidate

TLU has won a grant for this position from the European Commission’s
Horizon 2020 ERA Chair programme. The programme supports universities in
their efforts to build on their reputation as leaders in research and
innovation. The programme awards top researchers and their teams EUR 2.5
million over five years to establish ambitious research programmes.
Estonian Research Council is expected to top it up with additional 200 000
euros from its Mobilitas scheme. After the CUDAN project ends and the
position gets tenured TLU will support the Chair by its own means.

TLU has used the grant to establish a new professorship in Cultural Data
Analytics (CUDAN) together with the new research team that consists of 5-7
senior researchers and at least 5 PhD students. The team will also run
CUDAN Open Lab - an actual space and a cooperation platform for
collaborating with external cultural and media institutions. See more about
the whole CUDAN project here: http://cudan.tlu.ee

The candidate for the professorship is expected to have experience of
managing research projects and/or teams in digital humanities/digital
culture studies and with spearheading open stakeholder collaborations.

CUDAN ERA Chair will interconnect three TLU Schools - Baltic Film, Media,
Arts and Communication School (BFM), School of Humanities (SH) and School
of Digital Technologies (DTI). The ERA Chair holder will be hired as a
professor at BFM.

The applicant has to have a PhD degree in digital humanities, digital
culture studies or in data analytics and at least 5 years of experience in
managing research teams and/or planning and implementing research and
innovation projects.

More specifically the following experience is required:

-- Strong academic background and international reputation in digital
humanities/digital culture studies;
-- Publications in international peer reviewed journals;
-- Supervision of PhD students;
-- Experience in formulating and managing research teams;
-- Experience in planning new research projects;
-- Experience in coordination of or participation in international research
projects (e.g. Framework Programme, Horizon 2020);
-- Collaboration with non-academic stakeholders.

The ERA Chair holder will need to reside permanently in Estonia and sign an
employment contract with TLU.

The salary of the ERA Chair professor will be negotiable, but will be based
on the existing experience and seniority of the candidates and equate
broadly with professor salaries in Western European countries. Yet,
employment in Estonia could be more beneficial due to low income tax rates
(approximately 21% for this position).

TLU offers modern ergonomic working conditions and flexible schedules in a
brand new campus located in the city centre. TLU employees enjoy numerous
benefits in areas such recreation, health care, child care, employee
training, etc. TLU allows for its professors extensive paid vacation - 65
days each year. TLU will help the newly expected professor and her/his
family with the move to Estonia, relocation allowance can be negotiated.

Deadlines: The application process opened June 22nd 2019 and ends August
12th. A decision will be made in the Autumn of 2019. All the details about
the process and what documents are needed can be found here:
