University of Göttingen
The Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology at the University of Göttingen is inviting applications for the position of a

Professor of Forest Nature Conservation
(salary grade: W2 NBesO)

to start at the earliest possible date.
We are seeking applicants for a tenured position in the field of Forest Nature Conservation (W2). The selected candidate will run a research program focusing on the development of science-based conservation concepts through the analysis of ecological communities using experiments and modeling. These conservation concepts should be based on quantitative relations between management, biodiversity and functions of forest ecosystems and contribute to the valuation of ecosystem services. The successful candidate is expected to actively contribute to our faculty’s research programmes ’Forest ecosystems and biodiversity’ and ’Sustainable forestry and global change’. Interest to conduct research in both temperate and tropical forest ecosystems is desirable.
The successful applicant will undertake teaching-related tasks in forest nature conservation as part of the faculty’s bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programmes, including basic knowledge on the legal basis and planning concepts of forest conservation projects. Furthermore, an active role in contributing to the international English-language bachelor’s programme entitled "Molecular Ecosystem Sciences" is expected. Due to the international profile of the professorship and the students, lectures are given partly in English and in German.
The requirements for appointment to this post are derived from Article 25 of the current version of the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act. Further details can be provided on request.
Applications from scientists and researchers from abroad are particularly welcome. The University of Göttingen aspires to increase the proportion of women in areas in which women are underrepresented, and would therefore like to strongly encourage qualified female scientists and researchers to apply for this position. Disabled persons who are suitable for the post will be given preferential consideration.
Please submit all application documents including a curriculum vita, a list of publications, an account of your teaching and research activities and details of external funding in the form of one pdf document by 30 November, 2016 to the Dean of the Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology at the following email address: dekanat.forst@uni-goettingen.de.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Hiltscher.
