As part of the career development programme for junior researchers funded by the German federal and state governments, Saarland University is inviting applications for the following tenure-track junior professorships commencing winter semester 2018.

These positions will initially be fixed-term public sector positions (‘Beamtenverhältnis auf Zeit’) for a period of three or four years. The duration of the appointment may be extended up to a maximum of six years in total if this is supported by the results of the teaching appraisal and the external assessment of the appointee’s research work. If performance continues to meet the required standards and if the tenure evaluation procedure is positive, the junior professor will be promoted to a permanent professorship (lifetime tenure) at the German academic salary scale W2.
