Full Professor (W3) of Paleontology

to be filled in the Institute of Biology, which is to be newly established.

At the State Museum of Natural History (SMNS), the position is to be filled as the

The joint position is to be filled by the SMNS and the UHOH as a double appointment according to the “Jülich Model”.

She/he has proven expertise in the systematics, phyologeny, morphology, taxonomy, and taphonomy of fossil sites. We expect a high degree of commitment in collection-focused research as well as the willingness and ability to take on both the department directorship at the SMNS and teaching in the area of systematic and evolutionary paleobiology at the UHOH with a teaching load of 2 contact hours per week.

Deadline is July 14, 2019.
