Professorship (W2) of Inclusive Education for Cognitive and Emotional Developmental Disabilities
University of Potsdam
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 University 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 -AmNeuen 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 in the field of inclusive education. We
are looking for researchers of national and international stature who have a strong profile in empirical education research and teacher training. The
successful candidates are expected to engage in the predominantly quantitative research of inclusion education in Potsdam. They will have excellent
publications in international peer-reviewed journals, successful experience in acquisition of external funds and international networking. They are
expected to engage particularly in the development of degree programs (including program internationalization) and actively cooperate with the
Center for Teacher Training and Education Research (ZeLB). The language of instruction is German.
Documents can submitted in German or English. A German version of the advertisement can be found here:
