This includes introductory level courses in basic psychology and methods (e. g., “Social Psychology” and “Statistics”) as well as courses in applied psychology (e. g., “Consumer Psychology”), and to develop innovative and interdisciplinary projects in cooperation with scientific and social institutions. These projects ideally promote collaboration between different university departments. The successful candidate will mostly teach courses in German but also in English. Applicants are committed to pursuing an active research program in the area of specialisation, and to seeking third-party funding to establish or advance research projects in cooperation with partners from business, civil society and politics as well as other research institutions. Responsibilities also include memberships in faculty and institutional committees.
