Full Professor of Ecological Resource Technology

at pay grade W 3 at the earliest convenience. This is a permanent civil service position.

We are looking for applicants from the field of resource sciences with a strong international background in modeling and simulation. Beyond classical mineral resources, the focus of their research will be on the recycling of secondary resources covering the full context of ecological, economical and ethical questions. Applicants must demonstrate research excellence in theoretical analysis in one or more of the following fields: environmental climate protection, substitution of fossil energy sources with regenerative energy sources, scarcity of natural resources, environmentally friendly processes for recuperation of secondary resources. Experience with third-party funding is required, as well as the ability to complement existing expertise in the faculty.

The professor will be expected to incorporate his/her own innovative ideas in the existing focus areas Ecology & the Environmental Sciences and Energy Research & Energy Technology, which represent important pillars of research at the University of Bayreuth.

In the medium term, it is expected that we will add courses held in German to the existing range of undergraduate courses and that new courses, especially at the master's level (in English and German), will be developed based on new findings in engineering.

In addition to the general administrative requirements, prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree, proven excellence in teaching, and a post-doctoral qualification to teach at a professorial level (Habilitation). Alternatively, evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered.  Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants. Exceptions will only be made if there are urgent reasons for doing so.

The University of Bayreuth views the diversity of its staff as an asset and is expressly committed to the goal of gender equality. Female scholars and any persons who can help make the research and teaching profile of the university more diverse are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the best practice club Family at University, and it offers “dual career support” for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth’s commitment to internationalization. All qualifications being equal, applicants with disabilities will be given priority.

Applications (CV, outlining education and academic career, list of publications, list of courses taught, experience obtaining external funding, as well as copies of all diplomas and certificates) are to be submitted to the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Science, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Döpper, electronically via https://uni-bayreuth.berufungsportal.de by 15th January 2021.
