The Institute of Medieval History (Department of History, Faculty of Humanities) at the University of
Tübingen is seeking, at the earliest possible date, a
tenure-track faculty member at the initial rank of Associate Professor (W1) of Late Medieval
and Early Modern Global History.


The successful applicant will represent the field of global history between the fourteenth and
seventeenth centuries in both research and teaching. They will contribute to research centres and
research clusters, and to all study programmes offered by the Department of History. The position will
entail teaching obligations of four to six periods per week during term time. We expect the successful
applicant to learn German within the first three years and to be able to teach in German after the first
evaluation.


The university requires all applicants to have earned a PhD in either Late Medieval or Early Modern
Global History. Further requirements include a clear potential for future publications in renowned,
internationally visible peer-reviewed journals, and suitability for the position in terms of teaching
experience.


The position will initially be filled at the level of an associate professorship (W1) but can be converted
into a full professorship (W3). Upon positive evaluation of the incumbent‘s performance, they will be appointed full professor through an appropriate, simplified appointment process; no new vacancy
announcement for the position will be published in this case. The criteria upon which the intermediate
and final evaluations of the candidate’s performance will be based can be found in the university’s
guidelines on quality management: http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/de/117737.


The University of Tübingen aims to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching, and
therefore particularly welcomes applications from female candidates. International candidates are
likewise explicitly invited to apply.


All qualifications being equal, severely disabled applicants will be given preference.


Applications including the necessary documents (curriculum vitae, outline of academic career, scans
of relevant certificates and transcripts, a list of publications, proof of teaching experience) and all
monographs authored by the applicant as well as up to five pertinent articles should be submitted to
the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities via email (bewerbung@philosophie.uni-tuebingen.de) by April
4, 2018. Further enquiries may likewise be addressed to the Dean.
