Full Professor of
Civil Law and Civil
at pay grade W3 (minimum salary per month: € 6,530.03) to commence on 1st October 2019. This is a permanent civil service position.
Applicants should represent the entire spectrum of civil law and German and European civil procedure in their research and teaching. In this context, procedural law issues must form an essential research focus. An additional focus, such as international procedural law, alternative dispute resolution, or insolvency law would be an asset.
The applicant should also have an interest in the aspects of legal studies that are unique to Bayreuth, such as the university‘s supplemental programme in technology, the LL.B. in Business & Economics, and the supplemental programme in economics. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to state examination preparation courses, as well as the department's research priorities and its English-taught curriculum. The position also requires involvement in the University of Bayreuth's interdisciplinary degree programmes and research projects along with a willingness to procure external funding and to be actively involved in academic self-administration.
Prerequisites for this position (according to BayHSchPG Article 7 and Article 10 para 3) are a university degree, a doctoral degree, proven excellence in teaching, and a post-doctoral qualification to teach at a professorial level (Habilitation). Alternatively, evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered. The ability to teach in English is expected. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants (Article 10 para 3 BayHSchPG).
The University of Bayreuth seeks to increase the proportion of women involved in research and teaching (in accordance with Article 4 para 1 sentence 1 BayHSchG) and therefore particularly welcomes female applicants. All qualifications being equal, severely disabled applicants will be given priority. The University of Bayreuth strives to further increase the diversity of its academic staff. For this reason, scholars who can help make the research and teaching profile of the University more diverse are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the best practice club Family at University, and it offers "dual career support" for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors' Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth‘s commitment to internationalization.
Please send your cover letter and supporting documents (CV outlining your education and academic career, a list of publications, a list of courses taught, your certificates, a list of doctoral theses you have supervised, and a description of the research and teaching programme you intend to pursue at the University of Bayreuth) to the Dean of the Faculty of Law, Business & Economics, University of Bayreuth, 95440 Bayreuth, by 15.04.2019. Application documents cannot be returned to the applicant, and if unsuccessful, the files will be permanently disposed of in accordance with data protection law. Please also submit an identical copy of your application as a single PDF file (up to 30 MB) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
