Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Arts, Huma­nities and Social Sci­ence, Insti­tute of Art and Music

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.

Chair (W2) of Visual Cul­ture in the Glo­bal Con­text (W2 with Ten­ure Track)

As part of the Ten­ure Track Pro­gramme, the Insti­tute of Art and Music at the Faculty of Arts, Huma­nities and Social Sci­ence invi­tes app­li­ca­ti­ons for the Chair (W2) of Visual Cul­ture in the Glo­bal Con­text (W2 with Ten­ure Track) initi­ally limi­ted to a six-year con­tract as a tem­porary public offi­cial, to be fil­led at the ear­liest pos­si­ble date. As part of the appoint­ment to the chair, eva­lua­tion cri­te­ria are mutually agreed upon, and will be eva­lua­ted by a faculty-wide and school-wide com­mis­sion at the latest in the fifth year of the chair. Fol­lo­wing a posi­tive eva­lua­tion, a per­ma­nent Chair (W2) of Visual Cul­ture in the Glo­bal Con­text will be gran­ted without a rene­wed selec­tion pro­cess.

Work­ing field:

During the tem­porary chair, the app­li­cant must prove that she or he is capa­ble of widely repre­sen­ting the sub­ject area of Art His­tory with com­mit­ment in rese­arch and teaching. Visual Cul­ture in the Glo­bal Con­text shall have a focus on the arts and crea­tive media in the modern age and the pre­sent. In addi­tion, broad com­pe­tence in Digi­tal Huma­nities is requi­red. The app­li­cant is expec­ted to draw on the his­to­ri­cal and cur­rent expe­ri­en­ces of the Dres­den collec­tion activity and art his­tory with regard to a glo­bal view of the disci­pli­nary sub­ject area, and should be able to com­bine both. In teaching, the chair is pri­ma­rily inte­gra­ted into the Bache­lor’s and Mas­ter’s degree pro­gram­mes of Art His­tory with its exten­sive inter­di­sci­pli­nary teaching assi­gn­ments. The deve­lop­ment of and par­ti­ci­pa­tion in inter­na­tio­nal col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons, as well as the active invol­ve­ment in the aca­de­mic self-admi­nis­tra­tion and aca­de­mic com­mit­tees of the faculty is expec­ted as is the wil­ling­ness and ability to con­duct clas­ses in Eng­lish.


Essen­tial ele­ments of the eva­lua­ti­ons will be the sci­en­ti­fic suc­cess in the form of qua­li­fied publi­ca­ti­ons that have been asses­sed in con­for­mity with inter­na­tio­nal stan­dards, the suc­cess­ful acqui­si­tion of third-party funds, docu­men­ted com­mit­ment in for­mats of know­ledge trans­fer, sub­stan­tial cont­ri­bu­ti­ons to the design of the plan­ned Mas­ter’s degree pro­gramme “Digi­tal Huma­nities”, as well as posi­tively eva­lua­ted teaching per­for­mance in Ger­man and Eng­lish on the level of a W2 chair.
We are loo­king for a sci­en­tist with broad and pro­found know­ledge, if pos­si­ble, on the ent­ire area of art his­tory, from late anti­quity to the pre­sent, cou­p­led with the wil­ling­ness to cont­ri­bute to the dyna­mic and sys­te­ma­tic deve­lop­ment of the sub­ject in rese­arch and teaching. App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (Hig­her Edu­ca­tion Act of the Free State of Sax­ony – SächsHSFG).
