to be filled at the Biological and Pharmaceutical Faculty .


We are looking for an international research personality with a future-oriented focus in the field of zoology. The professorship is assigned to the Institute of Evolutionary Biology. The institute will in the future include the professorships of special zoology and evolutionary biology, developmental biology, zoology, history and philosophy of natural sciences and biology, including the museum facilities (Ernst Haeckel House, Phyletisches Museum). Without setting a specific zoological field, applicants should be characterized by an independent research approach. A prerequisite is experience in cooperation with domestic and foreign partners as well as in the acquisition of third party projects. Within the faculty, cooperation within one of the faculties' research activities (aging research, microbial communication, biodiversity) is desired. The teaching tasks comprise basic teaching of Bachelor and Lehramtsstudenten in zoology as well as in the Masterstudiengänge.


The Friedrich Schiller University is striving to increase the proportion of female researchers in research and teaching. Applications from female scientists are therefore expressly welcomed. People with disabilities are given preference if they have the same suitability.



Habilitation or comparable scientific achievements as well as pedagogical suitability are necessary. Active third-party advertising is expected. In the case of a first appointment to a professorship, the employment relationship is initially limited in principle; Exceptions to this rule are possible (§ 79 para. 2 ThürHG).
