Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Inter­na­tio­nal Insti­tute Zit­tau

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 Busi­ness Manage­ment, esp. Cor­po­rate Bio­di­ver­sity Manage­ment
(with ten­ure track to W3)

As part of the Ten­ure Track Pro­gramme of the Ger­man Federal Govern­ment and the Federal Sta­tes (Ten­ure Track Pro­gramme), the Inter­na­tio­nal Insti­tute Zit­tau, invi­tes app­li­ca­ti­ons for the
Chair (W2) of Busi­ness Manage­ment, esp. Cor­po­rate Bio­di­ver­sity Manage­ment
(with ten­ure track to W3) with a six year con­tract, to be fil­led at 1st April 2019. In being appoin­ted to the chair, eva­lua­tion cri­te­ria will be mutually agreed upon, which will be eva­lua­ted by a TU Dres­den eva­lua­tion com­mis­sion at the latest in the fifth year of the chair. The main focus of the eva­lua­tion 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 in each case at the level of a W3 chair, the esta­blish­ment of rese­arch coope­ra­ti­ons and spe­cial com­mit­ment to the aca­de­mic sel­fad­mi­nis­tra­tion. Fol­lo­wing a posi­tive eva­lua­tion, a per­ma­nent Chair (W3) of Busi­ness Manage­ment, esp. Cor­po­rate Bio­di­ver­sity Manage­ment will be gran­ted.

Work­ing field:

During the tem­porary posi­tion at the chair, 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. Cor­po­rate Bio­di­ver­sity Manage­ment, in rese­arch and teaching. Man­da­tory teaching assi­gn­ment amounts to 8 semes­ter hours per week. Teaching activi­ties will require excel­lent com­mand of Eng­lish as prio­rity of teaching lies in the inter­na­tio­nal mas­ter's pro­gram­mes “Eco­sys­tem Ser­vices" and “Inter­na­tio­nal Manage­ment”. Addi­tio­nal teaching activi­ties in Ger­man are pre­fe­ra­ble, but not neces­sa­rily requi­red. It is expec­ted that the suc­cess­ful app­li­cant will be actively invol­ved in the fur­ther deve­lop­ment of the mas­ter’s pro­gram­mes at the IHI Zit­tau and in their inte­gra­tion with pro­gram­mes and cour­ses offe­red by the Facul­ties of Busi­ness and Eco­no­mics as well as Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces at the TU Dres­den. An affi­liate mem­bership in the Faculty of Busi­ness and Eco­no­mics is inten­ded. Fur­ther­more, the can­di­date will be enga­ged in the inte­gra­tion of study offers of the IHI Zit­tau with its inter­na­tio­nal part­ners, espe­cially in Cen­tral and Eas­tern Euro­pean neigh­bou­ring coun­tries. The suc­cess­ful can­di­date is expec­ted to be wil­ling to engage in inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch and teaching in the diverse yet import­antly con­nec­ted areas of busi­ness and eco­no­mics, envi­ron­men­tal sci­en­ces, bio­logy and bio­tech­no­logy, which inclu­des active coope­ra­tion with PRISMA, the cross-faculty Centre for Sustaina­bi­lity Assess­ment and Policy at TU Dres­den. Rea­li­sing trans­di­sci­pli­nary approa­ches, it is expec­ted that the hol­der of the posi­tion enga­ges in natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal busi­ness and other societ­ally rele­vant net­works that are dedi­ca­ted to bio­di­ver­sity and eco­sys­tem ser­vices in entre­pre­neu­rial deci­sion-making. This should include net­wor­king with local actors of the Euro­re­gion Neisse. The duties include par­ti­ci­pa­tion in aca­de­mic sel­fad­mi­nis­tra­tion.


The app­li­cant shall demons­trate the qua­lity of his/her work and inter­na­tio­nal stan­ding through first-class publi­ca­ti­ons in inter­na­tio­nally refe­reed jour­nals and holds sci­en­ti­fic exper­tise in the area of busi­ness manage­ment, ide­ally alre­ady with rese­arch and teaching expe­ri­ence in the area of cor­po­rate bio­di­ver­sity manage­ment. lt is expec­ted that the can­di­date has com­pre­hen­sive expe­ri­ence in inter­di­sci­pli­nary methods and approa­ches in the fields of sustaina­bi­lity/envi­ron­men­tal manage­ment and/or Cor­po­rate Social Res­pon­si­bi­lity. Poten­tial future rese­arch and teaching sub­jects of the chair will range from sys­te­ma­tic inte­gra­tion of bio­di­ver­sity and eco­sys­tem ser­vices in the pro­cess of pro­vi­ding and uti­li­sing goods and ser­vices as well as in envi­ron­men­tal manage­ment sys­tems to the deve­lop­ment of sui­ta­ble indi­ca­tors and pro­ce­du­res for natu­ral capi­tal and busi­ness accoun­ting and stra­te­gic con­cepts to take bio­di­ver­sity bet­ter into account in the busi­nes­ses’ daily activi­ties. This may include end-of-the-pipe approa­ches, but even more so pur­suing proac­tive approa­ches in res­pon­si­bi­lity for pre­sent and future gene­ra­ti­ons. The app­li­cant shows evi­dence of expe­ri­ence in acqui­ring exter­nal fun­ding in pre­vious func­tions and 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 (SächsHSFG). Gene­rally an app­li­cant's addi­tio­nal sci­en­ti­fic per­for­mance is pre­sen­ted in the form of a habi­li­ta­tion, suc­cess­fully eva­lua­ted Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship or ano­ther aca­de­mic accom­plish­ment of equal value.
