An empir­ical and the­or­et­ical per­spect­ive of Bildung is desir­able, as is research on higher edu­ca­tion, digit­al­iz­a­tion and/or STEM, as well as innov­at­ive ideas for shap­ing this new chair at TU Ber­lin. Exper­i­ence in lead­ing research groups as well as in the acquis­i­tion of third-party fund­ing, par­tic­u­larly from the DFG, are sim­il­arly desir­able. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will also be expec­ted to be act­ive in aca­demic self-admin­is­tra­tion and use the oppor­tun­it­ies for cooper­a­tion with insti­tu­tions of higher edu­ca­tion at TUB. Can­did­ates who are not yet able to speak Ger­man, should be will­ing to improve their Ger­man lan­guage skills in an appro­pri­ate time period if appoin­ted to the pos­i­tion.
