Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences offers a range of engineering, economics, health
and human sciences courses to over 6,200 students across two sites. As a family-friendly university
on a green campus that is one of the loveliest in Germany, we offer attractive working conditions.
Magdeburg, the City on the Elbe and once an imperial residence, has always appealed to creative
minds from the sciences, culture and politics. This is equally true of our second location: the
Hanseatic town of Stendal, the birthplace of Winckelmann and the capital of Brick Gothic.
Subject to the availability of funding, Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences is seeking to
fill, at the earliest opportunity, the following post in the Department of Social Work, Health and
W2 Professorship in Social and
Administrative Law with the
Emphasis on Youth Welfare Law

and advanced BA and MA degree programmes in different disciplines.
The holder of the advertised post will take responsibility for teaching and research primarily on the
BA programme in Social Work as well as other programmes offered by the department. The
professorship in law focuses on social and administrative law, combined with an emphasis on youth
welfare law. Experience in practical application is desirable. Teaching and research should both
reflect upon gender and diversity constructs as well as life course-related aspects. In keeping with
the alignment of the department, the post holder will be expected to engage in cooperation with
welfare and health care institutions in the region on teaching-related projects and in research, and,
over and above this, to take an active interest in academic self-governance.
The international orientation of the department and the option of providing foreign-language classes
mean that an excellent knowledge of English is desirable.
