A full professorship (W 2) in secondary education with a focus on teaching and learning research (m/f/d)
The Faculty of education in Landau is strong in research and innovation. We are looking for candidates with outstanding professional expertise who will play an active role in strengthening the academic profile of the institute and the faculty within the development of the University of Kaiserslautern-Landau (RPTU).
The state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the University of Koblenz-Landau are committed to a policy of intense personal mentoring for students, and thus expect a strong presence of teachers at the university.
Duties lie primarily in the area of secondary education. The position holder provides an empirical contribution to research on teaching and learning. Collaboration in one of the faculty’s research profile topics is expected („Normativity in science and living environment“, „Education and training under conditions of heterogeneity“, „Educational processes in the context of organizations“). Experience with the acquisition of third-party funding and participation in academic self-government are required, leadership experience is expressly desired. The teaching load is 9 hours per week per semester (SWS) and is offered in pre-service secondary teacher education (Realschule Plus and Gymnasium). In addition, the candidate is expected to teach an introductory course in quantitative methods of empirical social research.
The hiring requirements of the Higher Education Act (HochSchG) in Rhineland-Palatinate apply. Prerequisite conditions are a successfully completed university degree, a qualified doctorate in secondary education or a related discipline (e.g., educational science, psychology), pedagogical aptitude as well as additional scientific achievements (§ 49 Abs. 2 HochSchG). Positions with pedagogical and/or didactic responsibilities in teacher training should preferably be filled with candidates who have three years of teaching experience at the secondary school level.
The university is committed to equal employment opportunities and strongly encourages women to apply for the position. Given equal qualification and aptitude for the position, female applicants are hired preferentially as long and insofar as underrepresentation persists and unless serious reasons outweigh equal opportunity considerations. Applicants with disabilities will be considered preferen-tially as long as they are equally qualified (please enclose documentary evidence).
Applicants are asked to send their documents (letter of motivation with specification of research interests, curriculum vitae including a description of scientific and academic career, certificates, list of publications, etc.) only by email to email@example.com no later than 31.08.2022 quoting the reference number 40/2022.
