jobs description

The School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University invites applications for the position of associate professor of digital media industries based at the Department of Media and Journalism Studies.

The appointment is full time and tenured and begins on 1 January 2025 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The School of Communication and Culture is committed to diversity and encourages all qualified applicants to apply regardless of their personal background.

The position

The field of media and journalism studies is currently undergoing significant changes not least due to the increasing digitalisation of culture and society that has radically transformed the basic conditions under which mediated content is produced, distributed, used and experienced. These new conditions call for critical and innovative ways to train qualified media and journalism studies students for a rapidly changing job market and to produce high quality research that helps society make sense of... contemporary media landscapes. The Department of Media and Journalism Studies at Aarhus University is taking an international lead in developing research and study programmes based on the premise that the ability to understand fully the implications of digitalisation in media production and distribution necessitates the adaptation and integration of new modes of enquiry into both research and teaching.

Against this background, we are looking for an applicant who can demonstrate research, teaching interests and experience, and competences in analysing digital media industries in economic and cultural-political contexts within one or more of the following areas:
• media industries and media systems analysis
• new and legacy media companies in the digital era
• media economy, ownership and business models
• international streaming services, AI, and media use
• national and transnational policy and regulation of the media and digital intermediaries
• development of theoretical approaches and research methods in media industries studies.

In sum, we are looking for an innovative and dedicated applicant who will enhance the research and teaching profiles of the department nationally and internationally as well as contribute to Aarhus University’s core activities in the areas of research, teaching and supervision, talent development and knowledge exchange.


The Department of Media and Journalism Studies at Aarhus University has a pronounced and significant international profile and a strong research network. Research and teaching at the department are directed towards Danish and international media with emphasis on the interplay of the core fields of study: media institutions, media production, media texts and media use/reception, and the role of media in culture and society.

The successful applicant will be expected to
• play a leading role in developing research in the field of digital media industry and production studies at the department
• contribute to research initiatives in relation to both the field of digital media industry studies, production studies and the research community at the department in terms of new collaborative research projects with internal and external partners and in connection with external research funding
