German language skills are not necessarily required. Applicants should be team-oriented and demonstrate a strong motivation to pursue an academic career. Teaching obligation is one course per semester. Applicants should be able to teach a course on ’European and International Social Policy’ at the M.A. level.

The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 'Transformations of the State' is funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinsch aft) and is the first institution of that kind in the domain of political sciences in Germany.
