The faculty of Law and Economics at the university of Greifswald is seeking candidates for the position of
“Professor” of Economics, in particular money and currency (W3)
for earliest possible appointment.
The task of the professor is to manage the field of money and currency for the diploma degree course Business Accounting and for the corresponding M.Sc. degree course. Furthermore, the core courses Microeconomics and Macroeconomics have to be read, as part of both the basic part of the diploma degree course and two Bachelor degree courses. We expect candidates to cooperate with their colleagues to further develop the economics branch of the faculty. In research, the department has a focus on health economics as well as on International Business Accounting with emphasis on the Baltic Sea Region. We particularly encourage candidates with expertise in either of these two fields or with respect to the university´s research focus “Environmental Change”. Applicants should have experience with and be ready to acquire external funds. The successful candidate must be willing to participate in the University’s academic committees. Experience abroad and the willingness to teach in English are desirable.
Applicants must fulfil the requirements for a university professor according to § 58(1) of the Landeshochschulgesetz – LHG M-V (State Higher Education Act): a university degree, teaching experience and a high level of scientific research, which is generally documented by an outstanding doctoral degree. Further academic achievements are expected. In accordance with § 58(2) LHG M-V, these are usually proven by the completion of a junior professorship or habilitation.
In accordance with § 61 LHG M-V, the appointed professor will be assigned the status of a civil servant (Beamtenverhältnis) with unlimited tenure; alternatively, if the applicant is not permanently available: limited tenure as a civil servant or public service employee. As a general rule, permanent tenure as a civil servant (Beamtenverhältnis auf Lebenszeit) can only be awarded for the first time to persons who have not yet ended their 50th year of life when they enter employment.
This position is open to all persons, irrespective of gender. The University would like to increase the proportion of women in areas in which they are underrepresented and thus applications from women are particularly welcome and will be treated with priority if they have the same qualifications and as long as there are no clear reasons which make a fellow applicant more suitable. Severely disabled applicants with the same professional and personal qualifications will be considered with preference.
Unfortunately, application costs (e.g. travel expenses for interviews) will not be reimbursed by the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
