OFFER DESCRIPTION

Kiel University has successfully applied for funding through the federal/state programme in support of early career researchers (WISNA programme), and seeks to appoint more qualified women to professorships.

 

The Institute for Psychology of Learning and Instruction (IPL) at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities

at Kiel University invites applications for a

 

Junior Professorship (W 1) with tenure track in Educational Psychology

 

with temporary civil service status for an initial period of three years (first phase) to start at the earliest possible time or date.

 

The future occupant of this position shall be responsible for the subject area of Educational Psychology in research and teaching. Research should ideally focus on sources of inter-individual differences in cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes and/or teacher stereotypes and judgement tendencies. In his or her teaching, the future occupant of the position should teach the Psychology of Teaching and Learning module within the Master of Education model at Kiel University, together with the current module coordinator (until he/she leaves the position) at the Institute for Psychology of Learning and Instruction (IPL) as part of premature replacement. There will be close cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education (IPN). The occupant of the position will be involved in instructing students on teacher training courses and will assume some of the associated examination tasks.

 

Appointment to the professorship is subject to eligibility for the WISNA funding programme. The target group of the programme is scientists at an early career stage. We would therefore in particular like to explicitly invite scientists to apply who have only carried out scientific activities for a short period after completion of their doctoral degrees. The applicant must hold a university degree in Psychology, a doctoral degree in Psychology (or a related discipline) as well as university teaching experience in (educational) psychology or related disciplines. The applicant must have quantitative-empirical research experience in Educational Psychology. International peer-reviewed publications are particularly essential. Experience in obtaining third-party funding is an advantage. We also expect the applicant to be prepared to establish and expand international research partnerships and be actively involved in the university’s self-administrative committees.

 

Please also refer to the appointment requirements in Section 64 of the Schleswig-Holstein Higher Education Act. After successful evaluation of the first phase of the junior professorship, the aim is to extend the temporary civil servant status for another period of three years (second phase).

 

After a successful evaluation, and in the presence of further requirements in accordance with Section 62 of the Schleswig-Holstein Higher Education Act (HSG), the aim is to upgrade the professorship to a permanent W 2-Professorship. In addition to the evaluation of the junior professorship, a separate evaluation procedure is carried out at Kiel University, usually during the second phase of the junior professorship, in accordance with the current statutes.

More information can be found at www.berufungen.uni-kiel.de (in German).

 

Kiel University is striving to increase the proportion of female scientists in research and teaching and therefore expressly encourages qualified women to apply. Women with equal aptitude, qualifications and professional performance will be given priority.

 

The university is committed to the employment of severely disabled people. For this reason, severely disabled applicants will be given preferential treatment if they have the appropriate qualifications.

 

We expressly welcome applications from people with a migrant background. Application photographs are not required and we expressly request that you refrain from submitting any.

 

Applications with the usual documents (curriculum vitae, list of publications, list of courses taught, research and teaching concept covering max. 5 pages, copies of academic certificates) along with your private and business address, telephone number and e-mail address should be sent to the following address by 22/06/2021 (date):

 

Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Kiel University

Prof. Dr. Andreas Bihrer

Christian-Albrechts-Platz 4

24118 Kiel

 

Electronic applications are preferable (as a PDF file) to bewerbungen@philfak.uni-kiel.de. If you submit an electronic application, you do not need to send an additional paper application by post. Postal applications will be digitalised for further processing.
