The successful applicant will be expected to represent criminal law and criminal procedure law, in particular in an area outside of core criminal law, in both research and teaching. Applicants are expected to take responsibility for examination preparation in criminal law; experience in examination preparation is a prerequisite. Applicants must have a proven track record in research and teaching in the examination-relevant area of core criminal law and criminal procedural law as well as in another area outside of core criminal law, and must have a research profile that, due to its focus and its practical relevance, fits into the orientation of the faculty's criminal law pillar, but at the same time complements it in terms of subject matter. The latter will be evidenced by a research focus in one of the following areas of law: computer criminal law and/or medical criminal law. We are looking for a scholar who will participate in joint research projects as well as in self-government and who, due to his/her qualifications and research orientation, will contribute to the networking of law and economics. Responsible participation in the LL.B. programmes in law is also expected. The ability to teach in English would be an asset. 

In addition to the general legal requirements, prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree, proven excellence in teaching, 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 urgent reasons for doing so (Art. 10 para 3 BayHschPG). 

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.
