OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Faculty III - Department for Classical Studies, History, History of Art

and Political Sciences at the University of Trier

 

invites applications for a position as

W1 Junior Professor with tenure track to W2 LBesG

for Provincial Roman Archaeology (m/f/d)

to start on the earliest possible date

 

This professorship is aimed at junior researchers in an early career phase and with extraordinary potential for a further academic career.

The subjects of classical studies are important for the profile of the University of Trier.

The post holder represents the teaching of Provincial Roman Archaeology in its entirety. In research, the future focus should be on the Archaeology of Trier and its surrounding region. Special emphasis is placed on the connectivity with the fields of research in Archaeology and Ancient History at Trier University, above all on the participation in the „Verbund zur Erforschung der antiken Kaiserresidenz Trier (VaKT)“, in the research area Roman Archaeology and Maritime Antiquity (FoRuM) as well as on a close cooperation with the „Zentrum für Altertumswissenschaften (ZAT)“ and the „Forschungszentrum Griechisch-Römisches Ägypten“.

The candidate is expected to perceive the possibilities for research and teaching in the „Archäologiepark Belginum“ that arise from the cooperation agreement between the University of Trier, the municipality of Morbach and the Generaldirektion Kulturelles Erbe RLP. The candidate should be willing to help shape the range of courses on offer in the field of Archaeologies, to develop them particularly in Provincial Roman Archaeology, and to increase the visibility of the subject.

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.

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 (W 2 LBesG). We refer to § 50 (5) 5 and 6 HochSchG – Higher Education Act in this context.

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

Candidates are requested to submit their applications with the usual documentation (CV, list of publications, list of courses, course evaluations if applicable, certificates and copies of diploma), a short presentation of past and future research projects, as well as a concept paper on the future design of the subject's teaching programme to the Dean of the Faculty III of Trier University, Prof. Dr. Torsten Mattern, 54286 Trier, in digital form (in one pdf file of max. 10 MB) to dekanatfb3@uni-trier.de, until 15.05.2021 and to contact him with any questions.
