The teaching position is located primarily within the degree programmes ‘Social Sciences for Intercultural Relations’ (BA) and ‘Intercultural Communication and European Studies’ (MA). It involves teaching intercultural communication in theory and practice as part of social sciences and/or communication sciences. In particular, teaching should integrate sociolinguistic references to the role of language and communication, as well as to multilingualism under the conditions of globalisation, migration and medial networking. A qualitative research focus is strongly desired. The student body of the international ICEUS Master degree programme is multinational. Teaching in this programme is provided in two languages, German and English. The position therefore requires the ability and willingness to teach in English.
The applicant should be distinguished in the subject of intercultural communication. Specialist focus can be placed on sociolinguistics, communication sciences and/or social and cultural studies. The applicant is expected to participate in the activities of the academic ’Centre for Intercultural and European Studies’ (CINTEUS) at Fulda University of Applied Sciences. In addition to pertinent research experience and relevant professional expertise, the ideal candidate will also have practical experience and contacts which may help the student transition into post-graduate employment. Willingness to become involved in departmental and university governance is expected.
