VACANCIES: 2 Professorships, Centre for Near and Middle Eastern Studies (Philipps-Universität Marburg)
For the foundation of its Centre for Near and Middle Eastern Studies (CNMS) Philipps-Universität Marburg invites applications for the following positions to be appointed for the summer term 2007.
Faculty of Economics: Professor (W 3) for Economics of the Near and Middle East
Faculty of Social Sciences and Philosophy, School of Political Science: Professor (W 3) for Politics of the Near and Middle East
Appointees are expected to cooperate in a team which includes specialists from the other fields of the CNMS in the continuing development of its specific areas in teaching and research and to represent their own field fully and comprehensively. Applicants should have experience abroad and linguistic competence in the appropriate languages as well as experience in fund-raising.
The focus of these professorships will be on present-day issues of the Near and Middle East. The appointed professors will also cooperate with established specific areas and curricula of their faculty (e. g. 'International Development Studies', 'Conflict Studies'), and are expected to contribute to its course programme.
Appointments are subject to § 71 HHG (Hessian University Law). First appointments to a professorship are normally restricted to six years (with civil servant status), unless the appointee has already taught at a university for at least six years. Tenure is possible after assessment.
Philipps-Universität Marburg is committed to being an equal opportunities and pro-family employer. Women are therefore particularly encouraged to apply, as are applicants with children. Part-time work is possible. Handicapped applicants with equivalent qualification will be treated preferentially. Applications (with copies of documents, CV, list of publications, teaching experience and further relevant materials) must be received by the President of Philipps-Universität Marburg, Biegenstr. 10, 35032 Marburg, Germany, by 29 September 2006. Please send publications only on request.
