Ruhr-Universität Bochum Position in Ethics and Aesthetics

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of Germany’s leading research universities. The University draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. The RUB is a vital institution in the Ruhr area, which has been selected as European Capital of Culture for the year 2010. *FULL PROFESSORSHIP (W2) IN PHILOSOPHY, AOS: ETHICS AND AESTHETICS, AOC: EARLY MODERN PHILOSOPHY*

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum – faculty of Philosophy and Educational Research – invites applications for the position of a Full Professorship (W2) in Philosophy, AOS: Ethics and Aesthetics, AOC: Early Modern Philosophy, to start as soon as possible. The person appointed will be expected to make an outstanding contribution to the teaching and research profile of the department in the areas of ethics and aesthetics, and he or she will also be expected to contribute regularly to the teaching of a required introductory module in early modern philosophy.

The teaching load is 9 hours per week and includes undergraduate teaching as well as teaching in the Masters, Masters of Education and PhD programs in Philosophy. Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic achievement (e.g. habilitation) and evidence of special aptitude are just as much required as the willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the RUB and to generally get involved in university processes according to RUB’s mission statement. We expect further more:

* high commitment in teaching

* readiness to participate in interdisciplinary work

* willingness and ability to attract external funding

 

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is an equal opportunity employer. Complete applications with CV, proof of degrees, a list of publications and an electronic version of five relevant publications should be send via email to the Dean of the Faculty of Philosophy and Educational Research of the Ruhr-University Bochum no later than April 21st 2012. Please apply via e-mail: dekanat-pe@rub.de [For further information visit: http://www.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/philosophy/i/index.html.de . For further inquiries contact corinna.mieth@rub.de]
