LUDWIG- MAXIMILIANS-UNIVERSITÄT MÜNCHEN
As one of Europe's leading research universities, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich is committed to the
highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching.
Building on its more than 500-year-long tradition, it offers a broad spectrum that covers all areas of knowledge within its 18 Faculties,
ranging from the humanities, law, economics and social sciences, to medicine and the natural sciences.
The Faculty of History and the Arts invites applications for a Professorship (W2) of Islamic Art History
(replacement, fixed-term until August 31, 2018) commencing on April 1, 2014.
The successful candidate will be expected to represent the field of Islamic Art History in research and teaching. Islamic Art History
should be understood as an important part of a global art history. For this reason, applicants should have a concentration in intercultural
exchange between Europe and countries of the Near East, the Middle East or North Africa.
LMU Munich seeks to appoint a highly qualified junior academic to this professorship and, therefore, especially encourages early-career
scholars to apply. Prerequisites for this position are a university and a doctoral degree. With an excellent record in research and teaching to
date, prospective candidates will have demonstrated the potential for an outstanding academic career.
The successful candidate will be employed as a university professor (pay grade W2) under the terms of a private-law contract. Additional
pay according to Art. 69 (1) BayBesG will not be granted.
LMU Munich makes a point of providing newly appointed professors with various types of support, such as welcoming services and assistance for
dual career couples.
LMU Munich is an equal opportunity employer. The University continues to be very successful in increasing the number of female faculty
members and strongly encourages applications from female candidates.
LMU Munich intends to enhance the diversity of its faculty members.
Applications including the standard documents (curriculum vitae, academic transcripts, certificates, list of publications, and five
representative publications) should be submitted to the Dean of the Faculty of History and the Arts, Prof. Dr. Hubertus Kohle (email:
Dekanat09@lmu.de), by November 15, 2013 (date of receipt).
