The School of Communication and Culture invites applications for two to three professorship positions in the field of media studies. The positions are based at the Department of Media and Journalism Studies, which is part of the School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University.
We are seeking candidates to play key roles in the continued development of innovative and internationally recognised research and teaching at the Department of Media and Journalism Studies. Each successful applicant must present a strategy for how he/she will contribute to the department’s research and education profile, and account for the relevance of his/her research in an international perspective (see qualifications section).
Globalisation and digitalisation of contemporary societies have entailed significant transformations in the media industry with significant ramifications to the production, distribution and consumption of media content. Part of this development has included the increasing importance of global media industries within specific media markets with pertinent implications for local, national, regional and transnational media cultures. The Department of Media and Journalism Studies wishes to strengthen its position within this research field, and is therefore seeking to appoint a professor with a particular interest in examining transformations in global media industries and their various ramifications and implications.
