You will con­duct inde­pen­dent inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch in your rese­arch field at an inter­na­tio­nal level.

The pre­re­qui­si­tes for appoint­ment to the unli­mi­ted chair (W2) after the suc­cess­ful ten­ure track eva­lua­tion are based on § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (SächsHSFG).
