וThe University of Potsdam (UP)'s tenure track model demonstrates dedication to supporting the next generation of scientists. After an initial hiring period of up to five years, position holders will be evaluated on the basis of their research and teaching. During this phase, the positions will be funded via the Tenure Track Program of the German Federal Ministry of Education of Research (BMBF). Given a positive evaluation, position holders will then be promoted to associate professor with tenure.
UP invites applications for the following positions, to be filled as soon as possible:
Four Open Topic Associate Professorships
W2 with Tenure Track
The positions are meant for scientists at an early stage in their careers. Even though one position each will be assigned to the following four faculties, they are completely open with regard to discipline and research focus:
- Faculty of Arts
- Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences
- Faculty of Human Sciences
- Faculty of Science
We encourage applications that demonstrate interdisciplinary potential and cooperation. Applicants should clearly indicate which of the four faculties they apply for. They should also explicitly outline their possible interfaces with current UP activities in research and teaching. We expect:
- a Ph.D. degree and at least one year of postdoc research
- an excellent scientific record with peer-reviewed publications
- experience in acquiring research funds.
Non-German speakers are expected to acquire a working knowledge of German within the first three years of their appointment.
