Professorship (W2) in Ethnomusicology

The successful candidate should be able to represent a broad spectrum of subjects, methods and theories in ethnomusicology.

The department seeks a person who is linked to international networks and willing to work in a team and who is disposed to establish the subject(s) of ethnomusicology within the departmental framework by implementing her or his own research fields. The willingness to participate in interdisciplinary activities within the faculty and to develop (external funded) projects is a prerequisite.
Mandatory requirements are a university degree, Ph.D., preferably a second book or proof of scientific merits of equal value and a marked didactic capability.
The designated salary for the position is based on "W2" of the German university scale or equivalent.
