in Building Research and Heritage Conservation, in particular Building Research of Ancient Constructions.

This professorship should be seen in the context of Technische Universität Berlin’s goal to recruit and advance junior scholars in the early stage of their career. The tenure track professorship is initially limited to three years. The position shall be renewed for a further three years conditional upon the postholder’s performance and agreement. After six years, as a rule, a lifelong professorship will be offered conditional upon the fulfillment of the determined evaluation criteria and hiring requirements for a lifelong professorship. Information about the evaluation criteria can be found on the Technische Universität Berlin’s website, https://www.tu.berlin/en/planen-bauen-umwelt/about-us/faculty-service-center/berufungen/tenure-track-criteria-for-the-professorship-building-research-and-heritage-conservation-in-particular-building-research-of-ancient-constructions/.

Working field:

Research and teaching in Building Research and Heritage Conservation, in particular Building Research of Ancient Constructions, initially focus on building research of ancient constructions. In the course of the fixed term phase, the focus is to be expanded according to the tasks of the lifetime professorship to be taken on. These tasks are wide-ranging, spanning archaeological building research, regional building research in Berlin and Brandenburg, transregional building research in Germany, and building research in a global context as well as site management planning, material and damage analysis, and the development of application-oriented monument conservation strategies.

The postholder is expected to teach in the Institute of Architecture’s master’s degree programs (German and English), in particular in the area of ancient architecture within the master’s degree program in Building Archeology and Heritage Conservation and the practical cohort project which analyzes architecture in Berlin and Brandenburg, as well as within a transregional and global context. After transitioning to the W3 lifetime professorship, the postholder is expected to assume the management and coordination of the master’s degree program in Building Archeology and Heritage Conservation and the Chair of Building Archeology and Heritage Conservation.


The candidate must fulfill the hiring requirements pursuant to Section 102c Berlin State Higher Education Act in combination with Section 102a Berlin State Higher Education Act. Of particular importance are a university degree in architecture or a related subject with a proven focus on building research, a strong aptitude for research demonstrated, as a rule, by an outstanding doctorate / PhD in building research, as well as teaching skills demonstrated by a teaching portfolio (for further information about the portfolio, see Technische Universität Berlin’s website, https://www.tu-berlin.de/menue/einrichtungen/praesidium/projekte_des_praesidiums/neuberufene/berufungsportal/bewerbung/lehrportfolio/parameter/en/).

Publications and contributions to conferences or conventions in the field of archaeological building research are expected. Candidates should already have demonstrated an openness to a significantly broader understanding of building research from other epochs as well as a willingness for interdisciplinary and international cooperation.

Applicants should demonstrate commitment to the advancement of junior scholars, and to participation in academic self-management (committees) at Technische Universität Berlin. Furthermore, the ability to work as part of a team as well as within a socially, religiously, and internationally diverse environment without bias is expected.

Technische Universität Berlin expects its professors to possess the ability to both head their academic chair and manage its staff as well as assume responsibility for the chair’s strategic development. For us, this includes commitment to the advancement of junior scholars and women, the gender and diversity expertise required to create diversity-sensitive working and study conditions, providing fresh impetus in research and teaching and participating in academic self-administration. Interdisciplinary cooperation and initiatives in science communication as well as in knowledge and technology transfer are also sought. Furthermore, reference is made to § 99 BerlHG. As a university with an international profile, we require our professors to possess English-language skills and we expressly welcome applications from scientists whose native language is not German and who are committed to quickly learning German.

Technische Universität Berlin offers its tenure track professors structured mentoring to support their professional development. The University values the diversity of its members and is committed to equality of opportunity. Technische Universität Berlin is seeking to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and actively encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates. Preference will be given to applicants with severe disabilities fulfilling the requirements of the position.
