Young, dynamic and under construction, the European Campus in
Pfarrkirchen is a diverse workplace and an exceptional place to
learn, teach and research. A creative and committed academic
personality is therefore to be recruited in order to help the
location achieve international renown.
For the winter semester 2021/2022 or later, we are offering
professorship (d/m/f) at the European
Rottal-Inn (salary bracket W2)
in the subject area "Building Physics/Building
The main teaching and research focus for this position is the
design and planning of energy-efficient, resource-saving,
recyclable building products and buildings. The currently
applicable legal regulations – such as the Building Energy Act (GEG
2020) – form the basis for the planning and dimensioning of
residential and non-residential buildings with the inclusion of
sustainable and renewable forms of energy. For this purpose, the
findings and results of a cross-trade, integral CAD-3D plan must
also be analysed and evaluated with the help of computer
simulations (building performance simulations).
Another focal point is the physical planning and dimensioning of
building products and buildings with regard to sound, heat /
moisture, light and acoustics. Based on the building's usage,
students should be taught how to dimension and specify the
components to be used (shell, interior, building envelope).
Knowledge of the necessary certifications, including structural
testing (solid and lightweight construction), must also be taught
in accordance with the legal requirements.
As a foundation for these focal points, further teaching content
should include the principles of civil engineering in CAD-2D/3D
planning, construction informatics, structural engineering and
building materials science. The treatment of sustainable concepts,
as well as their theoretical and practical application in the
individual areas, are especially important.
In addition to teaching and research, other tasks include
collegial cooperation in the development of new teaching concepts,
involvement in the self-administration of the university, and
supporting the development of the European Campus Rottal-Inn. The
aim is to set up new laboratory facilities or use those of
industrial partners, in order to provide students with a practical,
modern education. Experience in the acquisition of third-party
funding and management of R&D projects is highly desirable.
Due to the international orientation of the European Campus
Rottal-Inn, teaching takes place in both German and English.
Additionally, the position calls for international coordination
with European universities and companies. Very good written and
spoken English is therefore a prerequisite, as is a very good
knowledge of German.
- Completed university education;
- Exceptional research skills, usually demonstrated by a
- Pedagogical aptitude;
- Special achievements in the application or development of
scientific knowledge and methods in professional practice lasting
at least five years, which must have been acquired after the
completion of academic studies, and of which at least three years
must be outside of the academic sector. In special cases,
professional practice outside of the academic sector may be
demonstrated by the fact that a significant part of the
professional activity was carried out in cooperation between the
academic institution and non-academic professional practice over a
period of at least five years.
The position is suitable for severely disabled persons. Severely
disabled applicants will be given preference if they essentially
