The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Potsdam
invites applications for
Junior Professorship (W 1)
in Business Administration, especially Controlling
(Management Accounting/Management Control)
This professorship will conduct research and teach in the business area of controlling
(management accounting/management control). Promising research
activities according to recognized methodological standards that can lead to
publications in relevant international and national scholarly journals are required.
Applicants shall have very good skills in empirical or experimental methods and
shall also have proficiency in their application to the business area of controlling
(management accounting/management control). A willingness to cooperate
within the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences and, where appropriate,
beyond is expressly requested.
An outstanding dedication to teaching is expected. The professorship offers courses in
controlling (management accounting/management control) in the relevant bachelor’s
and master’s degree programs.
The following application requirements for junior professors must be documented
in accordance with Section 45 of the Brandenburg Higher Education Act (Brandenburgisches
Hochschulgesetz, BbgHG): a completed university degree, pedagogical
aptitude, and a special ability for scientific work, typically documented
by a dissertation project of outstanding quality. International experience, an outstanding
publication record, and teaching experience are also desirable. If the
applicant has worked as a research associate (Akademische Mitarbeiterin oder
Mitarbeiter) before or after the doctorate, then the sum total of years spent in
doctoral work and employment should not be more than six.
The appointment procedure is conducted in accordance with Section 40 BbgHG.
In accordance with Section 46 BbgHG, employment shall initially take the form of
a civil service position or an employment contract, both limited to up to four years.
An extension of the position can be granted for up to a total of six years, with the
junior professor’s consent, if she or he has proven themselves as a university
teacher. Another evaluation shall be conducted on a timely basis prior to the
expiration of the junior professorship. In the event that the outcome of the review
is positive, then the position is converted into a permanent professorship (tenure
track; www.uni-potsdam.de/tenure-track). The assessment and classification in
the W2 or W3 salary group (BbgBesO W) for such a lifetime professorship is
oriented towards Section 18 of the Brandenburg Compensation Law (Brandenburgisches
Besoldungsgesetz, or BbgBesG) and shall be done upon a positive
tenure decision in accordance with Section 46 of the BbgHG. The appointment
shall be made with the provisioning of an equivalent budgeted position.
The Ministry of Science, Research and Culture is currently working on an amendment
to Section 45 of the Brandenburg Higher Education Act (BbgHG). According
to this amendment, the time spent in a scholarly position as one’s main profession
may not exceed six years between the last examination event in the doctoral
degree program and an application for a junior professorship with tenure track.
These periods of time increase to the extent working hours are reduced by at
least one-fifth of regular working hours, time which is granted for the supervision
or care of one or several children under 18 years of age or of other family relatives
requiring care. In view of the expected legislative amendment, persons who at
this time fulfill the anticipated requirements at the time of application should also
apply to the position.
Persons who meet the hiring requirements for a university professorship in
accordance with Section 41 subsection 1 no. 4a BbgHG cannot be considered in
the context of this hiring procedure.
The University strives for a balanced gender ratio at all levels. Severely disabled
applicants will be given preferential consideration in the event of equal qualification.
