University of Tübingen
The Faculty of Science at the University of Tübingen, Department of Geosciences, announces
the opening of new positions:
Cluster Hire for a Full Professors (W3) in
Terrestrial Geo-Biosphere Interactions
The Department of Geosciences at the University of Tübingen, Germany, announces the
opening for a full professorships (W3) as part of a new cluster hire in the field of Terrestrial
Geo-Biosphere interactions. The chosen candidates are expected to develop internationally
visible research programs that integrate geoscience research with modern and past biologic
and climate processes. We are particularly interested in candidates who can bridge
between disciplines and investigate processes active on both recent (human relevant) and
geologic timescales. The candidates are expected to link their research to existing department
strengths in geosciences, applied and environmental sciences, geoecology, geography, and
also biology related University units such as the Institute for Ecology and Evolution; Center
for Molecular and Plant Biology (ZMBP), and the Max Planck Institute for Developmental
Biology. Connections are also desirable to current University expertise in the area of
'Machine Learning for Science' through a University Cluster of Excellence, and through the
Senckenberg Center for Human Evolution and Paleoenvironments (HEP) at the University
of Tübingen. Teaching should contribute to the programs of Geosciences (BSc and MSc),
Geoecology (BSc and MSc), Environmental Sciences (BSc), and Applied and Environmental
We welcome applications for the following position:
Professor (W3) of Geo-Biosphere Interactions (Geo-Biosphären-Wechselwirkungen):
We seek candidates who investigate interactions and couplings between the Earth's surface
and biota over either modern or geologic timescales. Fields of study could include (but are
not limited to): ecohydrology; rhizosphere processes; vegetation-atmosphere-hydrosphere
interactions; surface water hydrology; global biogeochemical cycles; biogeography; vegetation
dynamics, biodiversity and climate or geologic processes; or nutrient and element cycling.
Techniques used can include: geochemical, molecular, physiological, geophysical, field or
greenhouse studies, or analog/numerical modeling experiments. Teaching contributions will
include BSc and MSc courses in the candidate's area of research, including a co-taught BSc
course in Biology for Geoscientists, and field excursions.
Teaching requirements for the position are 9 hours/week during semesters including student
advising/supervision. Teaching obligations should include contributions to both BSc and
MSc courses. Teaching of MSc courses should be in English. BSc courses can initially be
taught in English.
Required qualifications for the position include a PhD or equivalent international degree and
postdoctoral qualifications equivalent to the requirements for tenure. This includes evidence
of teaching effectiveness.
The University of Tübingen is one of 11 Universities in Germany designated as a University
of Excellence. It is located in south west Germany, is one of the oldest Universities in Germany,
and hosts one of the largest geoscience departments in the country. The department is
housed in the new (2020) building with state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching facilities.
The city of Tübingen is a mid-sized university town that is culturally and internationally diverse,
and with an intellectually stimulating atmosphere. The region offers a high-quality and family
friendly standard of living with abundant recreational and cultural opportunities. More information
is available at: https://www.tuebingen.de/en/1815.html
The University of Tübingen is particularly interested in increasing the number of women in
research and teaching and therefore strongly encourages women candidates to apply. In
line with its internationalization agenda, the university welcomes applications from researchers
outside Germany. In the case of equally qualified candidates, applicants with disabilities will
be given preference.
Applications should be in English and include: a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, references,
list of publications with links to the publications, 1 page research and 1 page teaching statements,
diplomas/certificates, and a completed application from https://uni-tuebingen.de/en/faculties/faculty-of-science/faculty/service-downloads/#c608746. Applications should be
sent via email as a single PDF file (max. 10 MB) to the Dean of the Faculty of Science at
the University of Tübingen (email@example.com). Please clearly indicate which of
the above position(s) you are applying for in your cover letter as well as your perceived fit
with the geoscience, biology, or machine learning research units in the University. Closing
date for the applications is June 11, 2020. Enquiries may be directed to the Dean (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Department Chair (email@example.com). Interviews for
short-listed candidates will likely occur in Tübingen between Sept. 28 and October 16, 2020,
but are subject to change depending on the global health situation.
