Professorships and management personnel

As an exciting centre of teaching and research in Leipzig, we strive to attract the best academics to our university. Listed below are our vacant positions for professors, junior professors and senior managerial staff:

The Faculty of History, Arts and Oriental Studies seeks to fill the following professorship at the earliest opportunity:

Junior Professorship in Archaeology of the Mediterranean (W1 without tenure track)

(Position will be offered for three years, with the possibility of extension by a further three years subject to successful evaluation.)

The successful candidate is expected to hold an excellent PhD in the field of Classical Archaeology or a directly adjacent area of expertise with a focus on Mediterranean Archaeology. The position requires broad experience in teaching and research as well as advanced competences in recent methodological approaches and theories.

As the professorship will be a part of the History Department, he/she is expected to demonstrate an interest in collaborative interdisciplinary research in the wider field of historical and classical studies. Experience in archaeological fieldwork and innovative methods will be indispensable.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute actively to the development of the relevant degree courses. Applications must document teaching experience as well as teaching assessments.

The job holder’s rights and obligations are regulated by the Saxon Freedom of Higher Education Act (Sections 63, 64, 70 SächsHSFG) and the Saxon Service Regulations for Higher Education Institutions (DAVOHS). Applicants must meet the requirements of Section 63 SächsHSFG.

The junior professorship is considered a position for postdoctoral qualification. The call is therefore addressed to applicants with a completed doctoral degree, with the honour magna cum laude or higher, who seek further qualification and have not yet completed an habilitation. If applicants were employed as research associates or research assistants prior to or during the completion of their doctoral studies, the total period of employment and work on the doctoral thesis should not exceed six years.

Please send your printed application with the usual documents (including a detailed CV, a list of scientific work and academic teaching including any records of teaching evaluations, and a certified copy of the certificate of the highest academic degree acquired to date), preferably also in digital format as one PDF document, to:
