Research Assist­ant (PostDoc) - salary grade E 14 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len
Head of a Research Group

under the reserve that funds are gran­ted - part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

With its research agenda, the recently foun­ded Ger­man Inter­net Insti­tute dares a par­tic­u­larly ambi­tious form of inter­dis­cip­lin­ar­ity. Both the research agenda and the group of applic­ants com­bine eco­nomic, social and polit­ical sci­ences, law, and com­puter sci­ence, and they develop research approaches and per­spect­ives that are sys­tem­at­ic­ally linked to each other in the design of the indi­vidual research groups.
The research group FG 3 "Work­ing and Cooper­at­ing in the Shar­ing Eco­nomy" is about the impact of busi­ness mod­els and even non-com­mer­cial cooper­a­tions in the vast field of “shar­ing eco­nomy” - their his­tory, the con­cepts behind them, the ideas. The res­ults will build the found­a­tion for pre­dict­ing the devel­op­ment in the future: Who is respons­ible for what? What will be the impact on the work­ing situ­ation, the rep­res­ent­a­tion of dif­fer­ent groups or par­takers, the eco­nomic con­sequences, the legal situ­ation? Do we need to plan ahead in law­mak­ing, tax­a­tion mod­els, social insur­ance – and, if yes – what will it be we will have to do? All fore­casts pre­dict a drastic jump in the shar­ing eco­nomy within the next couple of years. And it is our duty to be pre­pared, to have the data and the mod­els to give the ghost, that already left the bottle, the dir­ec­tions to bene­fit soci­ety instead of being just dis­rupt­ive.

Work­ing field:

As head of the research group FG 3 you will take con­trol of the sci­entific lead­er­ship of all research activ­it­ies, and sup­port the PIs in the stra­tegic and eco­nomic steer­ing of all research groups. You will design the research pro­gramm of FG 3 together with all the other stake hold­ers of the DII. You will raise external fund­ings, keep con­tact to sci­entific and eco­nomic part­ners, and will coordin­ate and lead your cowork­ers in their research work. Fur­ther­more, you will rep­res­ent the research group to the out­side, keep con­tact with stake hold­ers in sci­ence, eco­nomy and polit­ics, and organ­ize the dis­sem­in­a­tion of research res­ults at national and inter­na­tional con­fer­ences and pub­lic­a­tions.
