Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Busi­ness and Eco­no­mics

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship (W1) in Busi­ness Manage­ment, esp. Stra­tegy and Orga­ni­sa­tion
(with ten­ure track to W2)

As part of the Ten­ure Track Pro­gramme of the Ger­man Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment and the Fed­eral States, the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics invites applic­a­tions for the Junior Pro­fess­or­ship (W1) in Busi­ness Man­age­ment, esp. Strategy and Organ­isa­tion (with ten­ure track to W2) with a four year con­tract as a tem­por­ary pub­lic offi­cial, to be filled on 1st Octo­ber 2019. If the interim eval­u­ation is pos­it­ive, the employ­ment con­tract will be exten­ded to a total of six years. In the fifth year, a ten­ure eval­u­ation will be car­ried out by a TU Dresden eval­u­ation com­mis­sion). Fol­low­ing a pos­it­ive eval­u­ation, a per­man­ent Chair (W2) of Busi­ness Man­age­ment, esp. Strategy and Organ­isa­tion will be gran­ted.
Eval­u­ation cri­teria mutu­ally agreed upon when the pos­i­tion is accep­ted will form the basis of the eval­u­ation pro­ced­ures. Essen­tial ele­ments of the eval­u­ations will be the sci­entific suc­cess in the form of sub­ject-rel­ev­ant and high-qual­ity pub­lic­a­tions, the acquis­i­tion of third-party research funds as well as related pro­ject man­age­ment, com­mit­ment and suc­cess in teach­ing per­form­ance and pro­mo­tion of young sci­ent­ists, the net­work­ing in the sci­entific com­munity and spe­cial com­mit­ment to the aca­demic sel­fad­min­is­tra­tion.

Work­ing field:

During the tem­porary posi­tion at the Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship the app­li­cant must prove that she/he is capa­ble of ful­fil­ling all requi­re­ments in teaching and rese­arch in this field. She/He will repre­sent the field of Busi­ness Manage­ment, esp. Stra­tegy and Orga­ni­sa­tion, in rese­arch and teaching in the field of Stra­tegy, Lea­dership and Orga­ni­sa­tion and par­ti­ci­pate in aca­de­mic sel­fad­mi­nis­tra­tion. The Junior Pro­fes­sor is expec­ted to teach cour­ses in the faculty's bache­lor, mas­ter and Diplom pro­gram­mes, in par­ti­cu­lar in Busi­ness Manage­ment foun­da­ti­ons and spe­cia­li­sa­ti­ons. The initial teaching load is four aca­de­mic hours per week. We also expect the suc­cess­ful can­di­date to coope­rate actively with both the mem­bers of the faculty and other disci­pli­nes wit­hin the uni­ver­sity, and to cont­ri­bute to exter­nal fund­rai­sing.


The ideal can­di­date holds an excel­lent PhD (or equi­va­lent) in rele­vant fields and has demons­tra­ted the poten­tial to publish in inter­na­tio­nal top jour­nals and pre­sent the rese­arch results at inter­na­tio­nal con­fe­ren­ces. In line with the faculty's and the Busi­ness Manage­ment group's pro­file, we expect the can­di­date to con­duct empi­ri­cal rese­arch aimed at theory buil­ding. We addi­tio­nally wel­come a rese­arch pro­file pre­fe­r­a­bly roo­ted in beha­vio­ral theo­ries of manage­ment and orga­ni­sa­tion, with a focus on those fields of manage­ment that spe­ci­fi­cally relate to stra­tegy (e.g. stra­te­gic lea­dership, stra­te­gic com­pe­tence manage­ment, stra­te­gic HRM) and orga­ni­sa­tion (e.g. change manage­ment, net­work manage­ment, skills in inno­va­tion, orga­ni­sa­ti­ons and demo­gra­phic change). We expect good teaching skills as well as the ability and wil­ling­ness to offer cour­ses in Eng­lish. Pro­fi­ci­ency in Ger­man is not a pre­re­qui­site for appoint­ment. Howe­ver, we expect the suc­cess­ful can­di­date to acquire suf­fi­ci­ent lan­guage skills in Ger­man to con­duct teaching and admi­nis­tra­tive tasks wit­hin two years of appoint­ment. Can­di­da­tes who hold a TUD PhD (or equi­va­lent) must have worked at least two years in a rese­arch posi­tion out­s­ide of TU Dres­den to be eli­gi­ble.

App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 63 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (SächsHSFG).

What we of­fer:

TU Dres­den sup­ports ten­ure track pro­fes­sors with a pro­gramme spe­ci­fi­cally tailo­red to their needs. Men­to­ring, various coa­ching ses­si­ons, and spe­cial con­ti­nuing edu­ca­tion pro­gram­mes and sup­port offers pro­vide active pro­fes­sio­nal gui­dance throughout the dura­tion of the tem­porary posi­tion at the Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship.

TU Dres­den seeks to employ more female pro­fes­sors. Hence, we par­ti­cu­larly encou­rage women to apply. App­li­ca­ti­ons from can­di­da­tes with disa­bi­li­ties or those requi­ring addi­tio­nal sup­port are very wel­come. The uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice.
