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 university. Profile of the candidate TLU has won a grant for this position from the European Commissionâs 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.
