With around 5,800 students and over 500 employees, Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences is a medium-sized university at the heart of Saxony-Anhalt.
Our locations in Magdeburg, once an imperial residence and nowadays the state capital, and the Altmark town of Stendal, the Brick Gothic capital and birthplace
of Winckelmann, have long been known for their creative spheres, and today also offer excellent studying, working and living conditions. In an interdisciplinary
environment of engineering, business, health and humanities subjects, we provide modern and innovative programmes of study and embody a culture of high quality,
which is anchored in our mission statement.
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 Media:
W2 Professor of Health Policy (m/f/o)
Thanks to its new and dynamic combination of subjects, the Department of Social Work, Health and Media is a department with an interdisciplinary focus that
offers undergraduate BA and consecutive and advanced (after a period of professional experience) MA degree programmes in a variety of disciplines.
We are seeking candidates who are interested in further developing the practical teaching and applied research in the profile areas of the university through
relevant practical and scientific activities. The subject area comprises health policy and healthcare provision in relation to social work. These subject areas
are to be covered on the following courses: BA in Health Promotion/Management, BA in Social Work, and MA in Social and Health Journalism. The post holder will
be required to take over responsibility for the modules on the named courses. It would be desirable for the future post holder to be in a position to transfer
the scientific and theoretical concepts pursued by the chair into practical projects in the city and region.
Your profile will include:
a university degree in a subject relevant to the area of the appointment,
particular aptitude for scientific work, which is evidenced by the quality of your dissertation in a subject relevant to the area of appointment,
thematically relevant research and publication experience and the readiness to critically reflect upon these in your teaching.
Experience in the acquisition of third-party funding and the support of research projects will be advantageous. In addition, given the increasing internationalisation
of the university, you will have excellent knowledge of both written and spoken English. Experience abroad is also desirable.
A further requirement is that professors should be prepared to take on teaching responsibilities in their subject area on other courses at the university.
A commitment to technology and knowledge transfer and university self-governance is expected.
