Full Professor for the Evolution and Diversity of Plants

at pay grade W 3 (minimum salary per month: 7,217 euros) to commence in April 2023. This is a permanent civil service position.

We seek a candidate with an excellent scientific track record in the evolution and phylogenetic relationships of vascular plants at the whole organism level. A research focus will be the macro-evolution of key innovations of ecological and physiological relevance that impact diversification rates and patterns. Methodological expertise in molecular laboratory methods and associated bioinformatic and statistical methods is expected, as is a deep field-based knowledge of plants and their diversity. The research should have clear links to the University of Bayreuth’s focus area in Ecology & Environmental Sciences.

Teaching responsibilities include first year modules in plant diversity and evolution in the BSc Biology, as well as modules in the BSc Biology teacher education programme, MSc Biodiversity and Ecology and the MSc Molecular Ecology. Willingness to conduct field courses and excursions that teach the diversity of plants is expected as is an ability to teach in German and English.

We invite applications from candidates with proven publication impact and funding-acquisition records related to the Evolution and Diversity of Plants. We expect a willingness to contribute to inter-disciplinary collaboration in the Bayreuth Centre for Ecology and Environmental Research (BayCEER) as well as a willingness to initiate new collaborative research programmes. Close cooperation with the University of Bayreuth’s Botanical Garden would be desirable.

In addition to the general administrative requirements, prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree, and a post-doctoral qualification to teach at a professorial level (Habilitation). Alternatively, evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants. Exceptions will only be made if there are compelling reasons for doing so.

The University of Bayreuth views the diversity of its staff as an asset and is expressly committed to the goal of gender equality. Female scholars and any persons who can help make the research and teaching profile of the university more diverse are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the best practice club “Family at University”, and it offers “dual career support” for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth’s commitment to internationalization. All qualifications being equal, applicants with disabilities will be given priority.

Applications (CV, outlining education and academic career, list of publications, list of courses taught, experience obtaining external funding, as well as copies of all diplomas and certificates) are to be submitted electronically to the Dean of the Faculty of Biology, Chemistry & Earth Sciences, Prof. Dr. Matthias Breuning via https://uni-bayreuth.berufungsportal.de by 15.10.2021.
