DIZH-Professorship in Digital Cultures and Arts
100 %

The University of Zurich invites applications for a DIZH professorship
in digital cultures and arts. The position should be filled by 1
February 2024.

The professorship will be established as a joint assistant professorship
between the University of Zurich (UZH) and Zurich University of the Arts
(ZHdK). After six years and upon a successful evaluation, the
professorship is to be made permanent.

The successful candidate's tasks include research and teaching in the
field of digital cultures and arts in media cultural studies and
practice. Teaching and research aim to analyze the possibilities and
consequences of digital technologies in the production, reception and
distribution of artistic, cultural and creative artifacts and processes
and to further develop them through own and collective research and

We are looking for a promising academic and/or artistically active
candidate, preferably with international experience.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree at the time of application and other
excellent academic achievements in the relevant field are required.
Teaching may be carried out in English. Non-German speaking candidates
are expected to acquire a working knowledge of German within the first
three years of their appointment. The University of Zurich is an equal
opportunities employer and in particular strives to increase the
percentage of women in leading positions. Therefore, qualified female
researchers are encouraged to apply.

The professorship serves as a bridge between the Faculty of Arts and
Social Sciences, the Faculty of Theology (both UZH) and the ZHdK as part
of the Digitalization Initiative of the Zurich Higher Education
Institutions (DIZH). The professorship can thus actively use the
cross-disciplinary networks of the DIZH, become part of the competence
centre of the
Digital Society Initiative (DSI) and be affiliated with the Center for
Arts and Cultural Theory (ZKK).

The closing date for applications is 1 March 2023. Details on the
application procedure are available on the website of the Faculty of
Arts and Social Sciences.
