the Department of Information at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany)is hoping to promote the internationalisation of its study programmes. We are therefore looking for a guest lecturer from abroad in the field of Information Science. The interested person must have a PhD, s/he must be member of a university abroad and have teaching experiences at university level.
We plan for the prospective colleague to stay for at least 1 year and desirably up to 2 years. S/he is expected to teach 2-3 modules in our International Programme “Digital Information Services” which is taught in English. Each module involves a class contact of 4 hours, i.e. the teaching load will be about 10 hours a week. Terms at our university roughly last from the middle of March until the middle of July and again from the end of September until the beginning of February.
We would be happy to find a colleague who takes an interest in our research focus “Knowledge Access und Accessibility” and who is committed to the internationalisation of study programmes and student life.
The salary of the guest lecturer would amount to about 53.000 € /year or more – depending on his or her status at the home university - plus required social security contribution.
