Professorship of Law at the University of Münster

The University of Münster invites applications for an open-ended appointment as professor of law in the Faculty of Law to commence as soon as possible. The Faculty of Law of the University of Münster is one of the leading law faculties in Germany. The appointment is part of an internationalization strategy that aims at preparing students for the challenges of an increasingly international legal profession and to attract a greater number of foreign students.
Applicants should be qualified primarily in a non-German speaking legal system and have an international focus on teaching and research. They must be able to give lectures in English. German language skills are not required. The successful applicant will be expected to undertake original research leading to influential international publications, contribute to the teaching of the faculty’s degree programs and take an active role in the administration of the faculty. The teaching load amounts to nine hours per week (approx. 126 hours per semester). The university will offer the successful applicant a competitive remuneration package (Although the offered position is a W2-professorship, the salary will be paid according to pay scale grade W3.) commensurate with the applicant’s qualification and experience and contributions to a retirement benefits scheme.

The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the proportion of female academics. Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with severe disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be preferentially considered.

Queries about the post should be addressed to the head of the selection committee, Professor Petra Pohlmann (petra.pohlmann@uni-muenster.de). Applications should include a covering letter or statement explaining the motivation for the application as well as a full CV, a list of publications and a list of previously taught classes. They should be sent electronically until November 2nd, 2015 to dekan03@uni-muenster.de.
