Comparative Research on Education and Schooling

Growing global interdependency has made international comparisons a main task of school and education research, which has a considerable impact on how the public sees education and how education develops. Applicants are expected to present this field of research in its full thematical, theoretical and methodological breadth, and to situate international comparisons in their societal, historical and cultural framings within their own research. Research interests may vary from case studies to large-scale systems, from developments within schooling to social developments. However, these should not be treated as isolated elements, but rather open perspectives on complex interrelations and interdependencies. According to the Third-Mission-policy of the University of Vienna, the successful candidate is expected not only to provide outstanding research, but also to take a stance on relevant social developments. The position entails teaching Bachelor, Master and PhD courses.
