Quality over Quantity
We are pleased that our job vacancies manage to capture the interest of so many talented applicants. This is not only due to the charm of our open, communicative campus. As a medium-sized university, we stand out for our commitment to constantly developing quality academic infrastructure, instead of merely pushing for growth. In doing so, we rely on our disciplinary and interdisciplinary focus areas, a philosophy which has raised the University of Bayreuth into the top tier. In addition, thanks to our research, we are able to cover a considerable portion of our budget with external funding.
An excellent work environment just waiting for you
Junior researchers, in particular, profit from the support of the University of Bayreuth Graduate School. The Graduate School facilitates scientific exchange in the earliest stages of independent research, and offers a range of transferable skills courses and additional teaching and training opportunities. We are an equal opportunities employer and actively support academic careers via coaching, mentoring, and “dual career support”, designed to help couples and families achieve the best possible work-life balance.
