Associate Professorship (W2 with Tenure Track) Faculty of Arts
University of Potsdam
The University of Potsdam (UP)'s tenure track model (www.uni-potsdam.de/tenure-track) 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
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:
