Assistant Professor in Digital Societies Position Announcement

The New Research on Digital Societies research group (NeRDS) within the Center for Research on Organizations and Workplaces (CROW) at Kozminski University seeks a prospective assistant professor (adiunkt) to hire for a tenure track position.


An ideal candidate:
– has received their Ph.D. degree recently or is about to receive it soon,
– speaks fluent English at C2 level (to the extent that s/he is able to teach and write academic papers in this language),
– is highly motivated to pursue an academic career and write an outstanding habilitation,
– has a publication record of high quality (while not necessarily quantity) and is ostensibly oriented at top tier publications in the future.

People with prior degrees in anthropology, sociology, management, psychology, international relations, as well as in other social sciences are particularly encouraged to apply. An ideal candidate should have a good command of qualitative methods (or quantitative methods, while having some basic understanding of the qualitative ones), be interested in sociology or anthropology of organization, or in management and organization studies. Fluency in Polish is considered to be an asset, but is not a requirement.

Chiming in with the current research interests of the team would definitely be highly advantageous. These include virtual communities studies (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, WoW, etc.), open collaboration communities (such as Wikipedia, FLOSS, etc.), knowledge-intensive organizations, organizational identity (including the topics of the social construction of gender), storytelling, or professionalization of occupations and institutionalization of social roles. Other topics related to innovations and new technologies are also welcome. A prospective candidate who does not have a publication record matching these interests may describe how they envisage their new research plan for the future. Our current research interests can be seen at NeRDS website.

About us

We offer a possibility to work in a team of young researchers, with significant international exposure (gained through long-term research stays at e.g. Cornell University, Harvard University, University of California Berkeley, Stanford University, et al.), in a fairly a-hierarchical environment. The team’s achievements so far, including publications on the JCR list, books by the leading international publishers (Stanford University Press, Edward Elgar, Ashgate, to mention just a few) as well as winning most of the awards available for young researchers in Poland, allow for academic development meeting the international standards.

Questions related to the advertised position can be directed to Dariusz Jemielniak (, who will be also more than eager to talk about the potential research collaboration.

The offered position requires beginning work in October 2014 or, in justified circumstances, from February 2015 onwards. The applications will be evaluated on 30 April 2014.

The prospective candidates are requested to submit their CV, motivation letter and a list of their publications and other academic works to, as well as in a physical copy, accompanied by an official copy of their diploma and an application form
