The University of Passau owes its strong visibility and good repute to excellent research, innovative teaching and its tight-knit international academic networks. Some 13,000 students and more than 1,100 staff study and work on our University campus, which is located a stone’s throw from the historical Old Town of Passau and combines state-of-the-art technical infrastructure with award-winning architecture. Internationally successful high-tech companies and a vibrant start-up scene, coupled with a rich culture and Lower Bavarian traditions, give Passau and the surrounding area a special appeal that makes it a great place to live and work.

The Faculty of Law at the University of Passau invites applications for the tenured civil- service post of:

Chair of Public Law, especially Administrative Law, E-Government Law and/or Regulation of the Digital Economy (pay grade W3)

The successful applicant will represent German Public Law in research and teaching at the Faculty of Law, in particular Administrative Law. His or her focus should be on the Law of Digitalisation, namely E-Government Law or Regulation of the Digital Economy. A willingness to contribute to the teaching in the respective specialisations (Schwerpunktbereich) as well as other study programmes of the University of Passau is expected. Proven interest in international and European aspects of the above-mentioned fields is desirable, as well as the capability and willingness to teach in English (aside from the indispensable fluent proficiency in German).

Research and teaching at the University of Passau are focused on the guiding themes of Digitalisation, Networked Society and (Internet) Cultures, Europe and Global Transformation, and Migration, Sustainable Development and Just Order. As a forward-looking, internationally visible and attractive university for Europe, the University of Passau seeks to make a significant contribution towards solving Europe's current and future challenges. Members of all faculties are in the process of establishing a unique, internationally-orientated forum for ground-breaking interdisciplinary research on one of the greatest challenges of our time: the societal implications of digitalisation. A willingness to co-operate on this interdisciplinary and cross-faculty project is expected of all future colleagues.

The Faculty of Law is renowned for its first-class legal education and a strongly international outlook. Working at the forefront of private law, criminal law, public law, procedural law, international and European law as well as the principles of law, the faculty’s thematic focus is on the legal aspects of the economy, labour and employment; finance and taxation; Europe and the international dimensions of law; IT; media; communication and digitalisation; as well as the foundations of law and legal procedure.

The successful applicant will be educated to doctoral level and either possess a formal postdoctoral qualification, such as the German 'Habilitation', or equivalent academic achievements garnered within or outside the higher education system or as part of a prior assistant professor or comparable role (e.g. German 'Juniorprofessur'). He or she will have demonstrated pedagogical aptitude and academic excellence, the latter being generally established on the basis of the quality of his/her doctoral research and subsequent achievements, as applicable. In accordance with art. 10(3)(1) of the Bavarian Higher Education Employment Act (BayHSchPG), candidates must not be more than 52 years of age at the time of their appointment.

The University of Passau actively promotes equal opportunities for all genders as well as diversity in the workforce; therefore, applications are welcome from all candidates who fulfil the requisite qualifications, without regard to gender, cultural or social background, religion, world view, disability or sexual identity. As the University of Passau wishes to raise the proportion of women in research and teaching, female academics are expressly encouraged to apply. This post may be available part-time, provided a suitable number of candidates are willing to work on a work-share basis. Furthermore, this post is suitable for those who are registered disabled. Registered disabled persons are given preference over non-disabled applicants who do not otherwise have statutory preferential status if their overall personal aptitudes, skills and qualifications are otherwise equal.
