Junior Professorship (W1) Assistant Professorship for the physics of the hydrosphere
University of Koblenz-Landau
The Landau Campus of the University of Koblenz-Landau and Technische Universität Kaiserslautern are in the process of forming a joint university for engineering and technology.
We are looking for you to help us as early as now to shape the start of our new university in 2023 at the Landau location.
The Faculty 7: NATURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES at the Campus Landau invites applications for
a Junior Professorship (W1/Assistant Professor) for the physics of the hydrosphere
The position at the iES Landau, Institute for Environmental Sciences is to be filled as soon as possible.
A personality is sought to provide complementary enrichment in the field of hydrosphere physics to the research at iES Landau, Institute of Environmental Sciences and to seek
internal and external collaborations. Research at iES Landau is characterized by interdisciplinary collaborations in the field of "Ecosystems and Anthropogenic Stressors" and
the professorship is expected to provide a link between aquatic and terrestrial research. The research focus of this junior professorship is in the area of hydrosphere physics
(e.g. hydrology, geophysics), with mesoscale model-based and/or empirical approaches. Willingness for interdisciplinary collaboration at iES Landau and especially on the issue
of aquatic-terrestrial system coupling (https://systemlink.uni-landau.de) is required.
In teaching, the position holder offers courses in the area of physics (structures of matter) in the master's program in physics for grammar school teachers on the basis of the
Curricular Standards of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate for teacher education. Teaching obligations are mainly in teacher education, thus language of instruction in these courses is German.
During the first phase of employment, the teaching load is 4 hours per semester; after the interme-diate evaluation, the teaching load will be 6 hours per semester.
A post-graduate degree, pedagogical competence, as well as special aptitude for scientific work are prerequisites. The latter is typically demonstrated by a qualified doctorate.
Applicants must provide evidence that they possess the competence and experience to teach phys-ics as specified above. Successful candidates also have worked and/or researched abroad,
are internationally acknowledged and visible in their field, and have experience in managing research projects and raising third-party funding.
Academic work after completion of the doctorate shall not exceed six years. Junior professors are hired as temporary public servants for a period of six years. In the fourth year of employment,
their teaching and research record will be evaluated so as to give them feedback on their career progress.
The state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the University of Koblenz-Landau are committed to a policy of intense personal mentoring for students and therefore expect a strong presence of teaching staff at the university.
The university is committed to equal employment opportunities and strongly encourages women to apply for the position. Female applicants are hired preferentially given equal qualification and
aptitude for the position as long as underrepresentation persists. Preferential treatment is not given in cases where serious reasons outweigh equal opportunity considerations.
Applicants with disabilities will be considered preferentially as long as they are equally qualified.
Please submit your complete application documents (academic curriculum vitae, certificates and degrees, etc.) to Personalreferat der Universität Koblenz-Landau, Präsidialamt, Postfach
1864, 55008 Mainz or electronically as a pdf-file to firstname.lastname@example.org later than 28.11.2021 stating the reference number 105/2021.
