The Department of Social and Historical Sciences invites application for 
a
Professorship (W3)
German Linguistics – Corpus and Computational Linguistics

With these position, the Institute aims to extend and strengthen its 
research focus in Digital Philology by establishing a cluster of three 
professorships.

The already established professorship in German Computational Philology 
(with a focus in Medieval Studies) will be complemented by two new 
professorships with the denominations W3 German Linguistics – Corpus and 
Computational Linguistics, and W2 Modern German Literature – Digital 
Literary Studies. The Institute thus aims to consolidate its profile in 
German Studies while further intensifying its commitment to the Digital 
Humanities that started over ten years ago.

Central research areas of the Institute are digital research 
infrastructures, knowledge and scientific communication, corpus and 
computational linguistics, (digital) editions, digitization of cultural 
heritage data and (digital) cultural studies. The already established 
course programme in German Studies and the bilingual Master of Arts 
Linguistic and Literary Computing are going to be complemented by a 
likewise bilingual Bachelor of Arts in Digital Philology (German and 
English).

We are seeking to recruit an experienced and well-established researcher 
in German linguistics to further enhance the profile in corpus and 
computational linguistics with methodologically advanced research. We 
expect active engagement in the research areas mentioned above as well 
as teaching in all courses of studies offered by the Institute at 
undergraduate and graduate level.

Formal requirements are the Habilitation ("Second book") or equivalent 
qualification and demonstrable experience in the acquisition of external 
funding as well as an excellent record of teaching at university level 
with proven pedagogical qualifications. Postholders are expected to 
actively engage in cooperative interdisciplinary research within the 
Department of Social and Historical Sciences as well as the natural 
sciences and engineering disciplines. Postholders are furthermore 
expected to represent the Institute in the self-governing bodies of the 
university.

The position is tenured with a remuneration package commensurate with 
experience and qualifications, following the German "W-Besoldung". The 
regulations for employment are specified under §§ 61 and 62 HHG 
(Hessisches Hochschulgesetz).

The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of 
female faculty members and encourages female candidates to apply. In 
case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of 
at least 50 or equal will be given preference.
