  • cur­riculum and pro­fes­sional field,
  • voca­tional didactic teach­ing,
  • action ori­ented learn­ing,
  • spe­cific voca­tional edu­ca­tion and train­ing (VET).

Research top­ics should con­sider the fol­low­ing pri­or­it­ies for the domain Build­ing – Design – Envir­on­ment:

  • voca­tional edu­ca­tion and train­ing for sus­tain­able devel­op­ment

  • inter­na­tion­al­iz­a­tion of work and voca­tional edu­ca­tion and train­ing,
  • gender and diversity cov­er­ing issues of migra­tion, integ­ra­tion, het­ero­gen­eity, lan­guage edu­ca­tion,

The ten­ure track pro­fess­or­ship is asso­ci­ated with 4 hours of lec­tures and sem­inars per week in the first three years, and 6 hours per week after interim eval­u­ation in the fourth to sixth year. Lec­tures have to be con­duc­ted primar­ily in the Mas­ter's and Bach­elor's degree pro­grams of the assigned pro­fes­sional fields.

This also includes com­mit­ment to the pro­mo­tion of young sci­ent­ists and women, gender and diversity com­pet­ence in the sense of cre­at­ing diversity-sens­it­ive work­ing and study con­di­tions and set­ting impulses in research and teach­ing, as well as par­ti­cip­a­tion in aca­demic self-admin­is­tra­tion. Inter­dis­cip­lin­ary cooper­a­tion, ini­ti­at­ives in sci­ence com­mu­nic­a­tion as well as in know­ledge or tech­no­logy trans­fer are wel­come. As an inter­na­tion­ally pro­filed uni­versity, we require good know­ledge of Eng­lish and also expressly wel­come applic­a­tions from non-Ger­man-speak­ing research­ers who are will­ing to learn the Ger­man lan­guage soon.
