Veröffentlicht am(vor 16 Tagen)
Young, modern and research-oriented: The University of Potsdam (UP) was founded in 1991 and has firmly established itself
in the landscape of scholarship and science. It has also become an outstanding factor in regional economics and development.
The Universi-ty is highly successful in the acquisition of external funding, has received multiple awards for its teaching, and
offers a service-oriented administration. About 21,000 students and 3,000 employees work at three locations - Am Neuen
Palais, Griebnitzsee and Golm - at one of Germany's most beautiful academic institutions.
The University of Potsdam is the only institution of higher education in Brandenburg for the training of teachers and has
about 4,200 students enrolled in bachelor's and master's degrees for certified teachers. The University has been part of the
nationwide "Quality Campaign for Teacher Training" since 2015 and will also receive support until 2023 in a second phase of
funding. Digitalization in the teaching and learning process is an important component of teacher training and is therefore a
cross-disciplinary task for all professorships associated with teacher training. Teacher training is being improved, both in terms
of quality and quantity, in the years leading up to 2020. This effort includes the establishment of 22 new professorships and
the annual enrollment of 1,000 students in the bachelor's program.
The Faculty of Human Sciences of the University of Potsdam invites applications for one professorship. We are looking for

degree programs as well as actively cooperate with the Center for Teacher Training and Education Research (ZeLB). Relevant
publications in international peer-reviewed journals, successful experience in acquisition of external funds, and international
networking are expected. A strong emphasis on research and teaching in the field of academic aspects at secondary schools
