Job Overview

Junior Lecturer in the Humanities or Social Sciences (f/m/d)

When you cut the humanities, what you lose is the human | The Hill


CODE is a new, ambitious university for technology and digital product design in Berlin, focusing on project-oriented and problem-based education. For our Science, Technology and Society Program (STS), we are looking for a Junior Lecturer in the Humanities or Social Sciences (f/m/d). At a junior level, we expect that you may still need more guidance in teaching, research and general orientation in the profession.

We understand STS as a liberal arts program for digital pioneers that puts philosophy at the centre of an interdisciplinary program in the humanities and social sciences. It would be wonderful if you had both a serious dedication to scholarly work and practical experience outside academia.

As a Junior Lecturer in the Humanities or Social Sciences (f/m/d), we’re ideally looking for someone from these areas of competence:

  • Political Science
  • Media Studies
  • Economics
  • Psychology

If you supplement this with practical experience from these domains, you’re likely to be precisely the sort of candidate we’re looking for:

  • IT (i.e. programming, sys admin, data science)
  • Policy Work (ideally digital policy)
  • Entrepreneurship, broadly understood
  • Journalism
  • Artistic Work

Generally, we welcome applicants from any field in the humanities, social sciences and arts. 


Most importantly, we are looking for a wide range of intellectual interests, a love for the history of ideas and a connection to the digital present. We value unorthodox and independent thought, especially when it comes with the humility and competence to play the game of current scholarship. CODE is looking for creative, curious and responsive individuals who are happy to work together and identify with an institution where the land is still being laid. CODE is a teaching-focussed and engaging institution, and we want to make sure you can also grow as a researcher and have time to connect your own ideas and projects during your time with us.

Teaching positions at CODE also require the following:


  • A PhD in a relevant discipline
  • Fluent English so that you can confidently teach in our Environment
  • The right to work and primary residence in Germany or the flexibility to move countries.
  • A German bank account to receive your salary into.

We expect the salary to be €3800 per month (gross) for a full-time position. Job start can be 1st Sep 2022 or later. The position can be made permanent after a process comparable to a tenure track.

If you choose to apply, please present us with the following application documents:

  • Your CV
  • A cover letter
  • Two writing samples:
    • one scholarly
    • one popular (this could also be a video or podcast)

We are happy to consider applications that do not tick all boxes and non-standard CVs. We are committed to having a well-balanced faculty and encourage candidates of all genders and backgrounds to apply.



CODE is a newly-founded private university of applied sciences that is embedded into the vibrant network of Berlin’s digital economy. At the core of our study programs is a self-directed project-based learning concept. Together with a network of partner organizations, our goal is to provide students with practical, real-world, and digitally-oriented education and the ability to face the technological and social changes and challenges of tomorrow.

We have a strong commitment to our community, to supporting and learning from each other, to development, and to building a healthy work atmosphere. CODE values different perspectives and is committed to a respectful, inclusive and diverse work environment.
