OFFER DESCRIPTION

TRIER UNIVERSITY

The Faculty of Antiquity Studies, History, Politics, and Art History (FB III) of Trier University invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the level of

Assistant Professor (Juniorprofessorin/Juniorprofessor) of Jewish History and the History of Interreligious Encounter in the Middle Ages (W1 with tenure-track to a W2 position, LBesG) (m/f/d)

starting April 1st 2022.

This professorship is funded by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States. It is aimed at junior researchers in an early career phase and with extraordinary potential for a further academic career.

We are seeking candidates whose research and teaching profile contributes to sharpen the profile of the history department and the University of Trier in the fields of Jewish History and the history of interreligious encounters in Europe and the Mediterranean during the medieval period. Candidates should be able to read and analyse historical source material in Hebrew and Latin/vernacular languages, in dialogue with international research in Jewish Studies. Sufficient knowledge of Hebrew is required.

We expect candidates to teach Medieval History in its entire breadth and to participate in collaborative research projects of the History Department and the Trier School for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (Trierer Kolleg für Mittelalter und Frühe Neuzeit). The professorship is linked to a leading role in Trier University’s Arye Maimon Institute of Jewish History. Trier University expects its academic staff to participate in academic self-administration.

Applicants must meet the general requirements according to public services law and the Higher Education Act of Rhineland-Palatinate (§ 54 HochSchG – Higher Education Act). We expect the ability to teach in German within three years after recruitment.

The employment term (limited term with civil service status) will generally run for six years. After three years and not later than the end of the fourth year of employment an interim evaluation will be conducted. This evaluation is to give an orientation with regard to the standard of performance in teaching and research. After a final successful evaluation as Assistant Professor after six years, and provided the general requirements are fulfilled, the candidate will qualify for appointment to a tenured full professorship (W2). We refer to § 50 (5) 5 and 6 HochSchG – Higher Education Act in this context.

The State of Rhineland-Palatinate and Trier University are committed to intensive mentoring for students and, therefore, expect strong presence of teaching staff at the University. Trier University aims to increase the quota of women in research and teaching, and encourages female academics to apply. Disabled candidates with appropriate qualifications will be given priority.

 

 

 

Applicants are asked to submit the usual documents (curriculum vitae, copies of certificates including language certificates, list of publications, list of courses taught) as well as short presentations of their previous and future research projects and of their teaching contribution in the Department of History, to the Dean of the Faculty III of Trier University, Prof. Dr. Torsten Mattern, 54286 Trier, by e-Mail (one PDF document, no larger than 10 MB), at dekanatfb3@uni-trier.de, by January 15th 2021.
