Tenure-Track Professor for Experimental Psychology

Applications are sought from internationally visible young scientists in Experimental Psychology with a track record in research and teaching.

Required qualifications include an outstanding doctoral thesis in Experimental Psychology, recognizable potential for internationally visible publications in leading international peer-reviewed journals, and teaching aptitude.


The chosen candidate will be requested to teach four to six hours per week. Independent research activities in the field of Experimental Psychology are expected.


Applicants for a tenure track professorship with a PhD from Tübingen must have changed universities after completing their doctorates or have worked in academia for at least two years somewhere other than the University of Tübingen.


If the final evaluation after six years is positive, this professorship will be upgraded to a full (W3) professorship with no re-advertising of the position.


Applicants must be in an early stage of their career; those who have completed a habilitation will therefore be excluded.
