Professor of Public Law (pay grade: W3)

This is a permanent civil service position.
The successful candidate will actively represent the subject area of public law in both research and teaching. He or she will have a research interest in public law, especially with regard to theoretical, philosophical, and historical issues and/or issues relating to comparative law. The applicant should also have an interest in the aspects of legal studies that are unique to Bayreuth, such as the relevant focus areas at the University and the supplemental programmes in business and economics as well as science and technology. The faculty is seeking a university lecturer who is able to contribute to its net-work in the fields of business, economics, and law, and who can engage in joint research projects in these fields.
Requirements for this position (in accordance with Article 7 and Article 10 para 3 BayHSchPG) are a university degree, a doctoral degree, Habilitation (post-doctoral lec-turing qualification), and proven excellence in teaching. Alternatively evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment will also be considered. The ability to teach in English is expected. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants (Article 10 para 3 BayHSchPG).
The University of Bayreuth seeks to increase the proportion of women involved in re-search and teaching (in accordance with Article 4 para 2 sentence 1 BayHSchG) and therefore particularly welcomes female applicants. All qualifications being equal, severely disabled applicants will be given priority. The University of Bayreuth strives to further increase the diversity of its academic staff. For this reason, scholars who can help make the research and teaching profile of the university more diverse are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth has been certified as a "family-friendly university" and offers "dual career support" for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth’s commitment to internationalization.
