PRO­FESS­OR­SHIP (W3) Eco­nomic and labour soci­ology

com­men­cing at the earli­est oppor­tun­ity.

Working field:

The pos­i­tion and its asso­ci­ated activ­it­ies will essen­tially be integ­rated into the insti­tute’s Bach­elor’s and Mas­ter’s pro­grammes through intro­duct­ory and in-depth mod­ules, which con­sist of com­puls­ory and elect­ive courses in Ger­man and Eng­lish. The appointee will be expec­ted to offer courses in a num­ber of planned new study pro­grammes in the fields of digit­al­isa­tion and socioeco­lo­gical trans­form­a­tion, as well as courses for inter-fac­ulty teach­ing in other plan­ning-, tech­no­logy- and envir­on­ment-related study pro­grammes. Demon­strable skills in ped­agogy and uni­versity didactics are highly desir­able.

Applic­ants are expec­ted to have exper­i­ence in aca­demic self-admin­is­tra­tion. Abil­ity to work in a team and a high level of social skills will also be require­ments in this pos­i­tion.

Other duties res­ult from the require­ments set by § 42 Branden­bur­gisches Hoch­schul­ge­setz (Higher Edu­ca­tion Act of the State of Branden­burg - BbgHG) in con­junc­tion with § 3 BbgHG.


Poten­tial can­did­ates for this pos­i­tion are social sci­ent­ists who have an out­stand­ing research and teach­ing record with a spe­cial focus on eco­nomic and labour soci­ology. The pos­i­tion of pro­fessor of eco­nomic and labour soci­ology is inten­ded to con­trib­ute to the uni­versity’s research pri­or­it­ies. It will be con­cerned with the fun­da­mental issues of soci­ology, as well as with spe­cial­isa­tions in at least two of the fol­low­ing areas:

  • Digital tech­no­lo­gies in work­places, organ­isa­tions and the eco­nomy
  • Trans­form­a­tion and struc­tural change in indus­trial soci­ety
  • Trans­dis­cip­lin­ary research on innov­a­tion pro­cesses and know­ledge trans­fer
  • Spa­tial aspects of work and eco­nomy.

Applic­ants must have an excel­lent aca­demic record, as demon­strated in par­tic­u­lar through pub­lic­a­tions and third-party fund­ing. An inter­na­tion­ally recog­nized research pro­file is expec­ted that involves the­or­et­ic­ally well-foun­ded empir­ical ana­lysis of issues in the field of appoint­ment.

Also expec­ted is exper­i­ence with inter- and trans­dis­cip­lin­ary research pro­jects. Exper­i­ence in the acquis­i­tion and real­iz­a­tion of third-party fun­ded pro­jects is expec­ted. Fields of research should be rel­ev­ant for the DFG (Ger­man Research Found­a­tion) or sim­ilar inter­na­tional research fund­ing organ­isa­tions. Since inter­na­tion­al­isa­tion is a major pri­or­ity at BTU Cottbus–Sen­ften­berg, inter­na­tional research and teach­ing exper­i­ence is highly desir­able, and will­ing­ness to teach in Eng­lish is a require­ment.

Please refer to §§ 41 para­graph 1 No 1 – 4a and 43 BbgHG for pre­requis­ites and con­di­tions of employ­ment.
