Second Call
Reference No.: 121/2017

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.
Magdeburg Stendal University of Applied Sciences is seeking to fill the following post in the Department of Economics at the earliest possible opportunity:

W2 Professorship in General

The future post holder should be able to demonstrate extensive skills and professional success in several focal areas as well as in research.
