Professorship in Digital Visual and Material Culture

The successful candidate will have demonstrated research and teaching 
expertise in the area of digital visual and material culture, ideally 
with an epochal focus on ancient cultures. His or her scope of 
activities include the development and advancement of computational or 
computer-assisted methods for digitising, modelling and analysing images 
and artefacts and for presenting digital objects in virtual museums. 
He/She is expected to initiate new research projects in the area of 
digital visual and material culture in collaboration with other 
object-oriented disciplines in Göttingen, with the academic collections, 
the Centre for Collection Development and the academic museum `Forum 
Wissen’. The successful applicant will also set impulses for an 
interdisciplinary collaboration at the intersection of image, object, 
and text and for the integration of different research areas in joint 
research projects. Therefore, independent research experience in an 
interdisciplinary environment – ideally in a managerial role – is 
desired. Moreover, he/she is expected to participate in the activities 
of the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities.

His/Her academic teaching should address the main areas with reference 
to Digital Humanities in the information sciences and also, if required, 
in the relevant syllabi of the Faculty of Philosophy. He/She is expected 
to participate in initiating novel degree courses and modules in the 
digital humanities. Therefore, experience with the development of 
cross-disciplinary strategies for the digitisation of teaching in the 
Humanities would be most welcome. Göttingen University attaches great 
importance to research-oriented teaching.
