The University of Potsdam (UP)’s tenure track model (www.uni-potsdam.de/tenuretrack)
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:
- aPh.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.
Section 41 of the Brandenburg Higher Education Act (Brandenburgisches Hochschulgesetz,
BbgHG) requires applicants to document the following formal requirements:
a completed university degree, pedagogical aptitude, a special
ability for scientific work, as is typically documented by a dissertation project,
competences in science management, and additional scholarly achievements as
evidenced, for example, by a Habilitation (post-doctoral dissertation) or experience
as a research associate at an institution of higher education, an extramural
research institution, or in private industry. Applications from W1 junior professors
can only be considered if the tenure track review as defined in Section 46 BbgHG
("Bewährung") has not already been completed.
The appointment procedure shall be performed in accordance with Section 40
BbgHG. The appointment shall be made with the provisioning of an equivalent
budgeted position. The candidate shall initially be hired for a period of five years.
A tenure track evaluation will take place in a timely manner before the expiration
of this period. If the tenure track review results in a positive evaluation, the position
will be converted to a tenured professorship.
UP strives for a balanced gender ratio at all levels. Severely disabled applicants
will be given preferential consideration in the event of equal qualification. We
expressly invite applications from people with migration backgrounds. UP offers
dual career support and coaching for newly-appointed professors:
