Your responsibilities:

Our offer:

Your workplace is centrally located in Munich and is well-connected by public transport. We can offer an interesting and challenging work environment and good prospects for further career development.

Otherwise salary will be calculated according to group E 13 TVL-employment. The position will end on 31.03.2024, with an option to be extended by another three years.

We particularly welcome applications from female candidates. The University intends to enhance the diversity of its faculty members: disabled candidates with essentially equal qualifications will be given preference. In principle it is possible for the post to be held part-time.
