Job Details

Explorative workshop | 25 to 27 June 2024, Frankfurt am Main

Goethe University Frankfurt is one of Germany's prominent universities, and a founding member of German U15, the association of Germany's leading research universities. Goethe University thrives in the dynamic and cosmopolitan environment of Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region, acclaimed for its economic vitality and cultural diversity, and renowned for its eminent quality of life. This backdrop provides an ideal setting for academic pursuits, research innovation, intellectual exploration, and inspiring teaching. Covering a wide range of disciplines, Goethe University is committed to academic excellence, which is evident in our robust research programs, diverse range of disciplines, and a strong network of international collaborations.

Center for Critical Computational Studies | C3S

C3S, Goethe University’s latest initiative, epitomizes this ethos. As an innovation hub of inter- and transdisciplinary exploration, C3S is dedicated to coupling diverse academic fields, encompassing computer sciences, natural and life science, and social sciences, as well as health, economics, law, and the humanities. This unique collaboration aims to define and foster Critical Computational Studies. Its aims are threefold: to deepen our understanding of complex systems through a critical-computational lens; to scrutinize the impact of computational technologies in shaping societal realities; and to craft strategies for the responsible design and utilization of these technologies, emphasizing sustainability, trustworthiness, and justifiability.

In line with this ambitious vision, C3S invites applications for an explorative workshop (see below) from talented and visionary researchers who are keen to contribute to this venture. Ideal candidates possess a robust academic background, high-profile publications, a track record of cross-disciplinary collaborations, and a profound interest in the intersection of technological and normative approaches. Goethe University offers a stimulating academic environment, comprehensive support, and ample opportunities for research, teaching, and transfer. Applicants will find in C3S a platform to not only advance their research but also to influence the future trajectory of Critical Computational Studies. They will join a vibrant community of scholars committed to making a tangible impact in both academic circles and broader society.

4 Professorships (all gender welcome), open rank and open discipline

As part of our founding strategy and in our first round of recruitment, C3S is seeking as soon as possible to fill the positions of

  • Two professorships at the interface between classical network science and graph machine learning
  • Two professorships for the modeling of climate change, namely:
    one for the modeling of the social and/or socio-economic drivers and impacts of ongoing climate change
    one for the modeling of ecosystems and/or biodiversity and their interrelation with ongoing climate change

The calls are open discipline and open rank (W1 to W2 Tenure Track; W2 to W3 Tenure Track; W3).

Explorative workshop

In an explorative workshop from 25 to 27 June in Frankfurt am Main, we will invite candidates to showcase their expertise and crossdisciplinary interests in a dynamic, engaging, and collaborative environment. Neither your application for the workshop nor the workshop as such are part of the formal hiring process. The workshop will pave the way for this hiring process, which will be conducted by extraordinary selection committees (“Findungskommissionen” in German) pursuant to the Rules of Recruitment (“Berufungssatzung” in German) of Goethe University.

We invite applications for the workshop until 2 April 2024 and will cover travel and accommodation for invitees.

Goethe University is steadfast in its commitment to fostering equal opportunities, embracing diversity, and ensuring inclusion in all its endeavors. We particularly encourage applications from qualified women and individuals with a background of migration, as we place significant emphasis on cultivating a family-friendly university work environment. Furthermore, candidates with severe disabilities, or those with equivalent status, will receive preferential consideration when qualifications are equal. This inclusive approach also extends to supporting women in fields where they are currently underrepresented, underscoring our dedication to promoting a balanced and diverse academic community.
