The University of Bayreuth is a research-oriented university with internationally competitive, interdisciplinary focus areas in research and teaching. The Faculty of Engineering Science at the University of Bayreuth is currently seeking to appoint a Full Professor of Cellular Biomechanics at pay grade W3 (minimum salary: 7,217 euros per month). This is a permanent civil service position.
We are looking for an engineering-minded individual with a strong research profile and in-depth knowledge in one of the following areas:
Applicants should have a very good scientific record in research through relevant publications in national and international journals and demonstrate a committed attitude to academic teaching. Experience in interdisciplinary teaching and research is welcomed, as is international networking. Several years of successful work in industry or experience of industrial practice would also be welcomed.
The research should bridge the gap between theoretical fundamentals and technical applications. It is assumed that the research group, building on an adequate basic endowment, will attract third-party funding for its research projects. Collaboration with existing research groups in the faculty and participation in inter-faculty joint projects is explicitly desired.
The research group will offer modules for the English-taught master's programme Biofabrication and participate in the conceptual development of an English-taught master's programme in Materials Science & Sustainability. The ability to set up new courses, especially for master's students (in both English and German), is expected.
In addition to the general administrative requirements, prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree, and a post-doctoral qualification to teach at a professorial level (Habilitation). Alternatively, evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants. Exceptions will only be made if there are compelling reasons for doing so.
The University of Bayreuth views the diversity of its staff as an asset and is expressly committed to the goal of gender equality. Female scholars and any persons 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 is a member of the best practice club "Family at University", and it 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. All qualifications being equal, applicants with disabilities will be given priority.
Applications (CV, outlining education and academic career, list of publications, list of courses taught, experience obtaining external funding, as well as copies of all diplomas and certificates) are to be submitted electronically to the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Science Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Döpper via the "Apply" button by 24.10.2021. Applicants are welcome to direct questions and requests for further information to the Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application documents will be deleted in accordance with data protection law following the conclusion of the appointment process.
