The postholder will represent the field of German Linguistics in its full breadth in research and teaching. In addition to the central areas of theoretical linguistics and language change research, the postholder is required to place a focus on media linguistics and expected to place another focus on language area research. The postholder will be strongly involved in the German Studies portion of the Teacher Education Programmes according to the Bavarian Teacher Examination Regulations ('Lehramtsprüfungsordnung', LPO). Furthermore, he or she will teach courses for those bachelor's and master's programmes of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities that include German Linguistics and/or Me-dia Linguistics modules (including BA Language and Text Sciences, BA Media and Communication, BA Journalism and Strategic Communication, BEd Secondary Education, MA Semiotics of Texts and Culture, MA Media and Communication and MEd Teaching and Learning Processes). A willingness to engage in interdisciplinary cooperation within the University, faculty, German Studies subject group (both as an academic discipline and didactics subject), the Institute of Eastern Bavaria Area Studies (IKON) as well as in teacher education projects such as SKILL is expected of the postholder. Moreover, it is desired that he or she actively engage in the acquisition of external ('third-party') funds for his or her own projects as well as collaborative projects. Research and teaching at the University of Passau are focused on the guiding themes of Digi-talisation, Networked Society and (Internet) Cultures; Europe and Global Transformation; and Migration, Sustainable Development and Just Order. As a forward-looking, internationally visible and attractive university for Europe, the University of Passau seeks to make a significant contri-bution towards solving Europe's current and future challenges. Members of all faculties are in the process of establishing a unique, internationally-orientated forum for groundbreaking interdisciplinary research on one of the greatest challenges of our time: the societal implications of digitalisation.

As a forward-looking, internationally visible and attractive university for Europe, the University of Passau seeks to make a significant contri-bution towards solving Europe's current and future challenges. Members of all faculties are in the process of establishing a unique, internationally-orientated forum for groundbreaking interdisciplinary research on one of the greatest challenges of our time: the societal implications of digitalisation. A willingness to cooperate on this interdisciplinary and cross-faculty project is expected of all future colleagues. The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is characterised by a wide range of geographical, thematic, methodological and academic subjects, as represented by its chairs and professorships. It underlines the regional specificities of inter- and transdisciplinary research and teaching as well as the inclusion of current social topics in times of transformation, without losing sight of fundamental longterm research. Individual lines of scientific enquiry are bundled under the faculty's guiding theme of 'Society in Digital Transformation', which rests on the three pillars of cultures - values - identities. The successful candidate will be educated to doctoral level in the area of German Linguistics and either possess a formal postdoctoral qualification, such as the German 'Habilitation', or equivalent academic achievements, garnered within or outside the higher education system or as part of a prior assistant professor or comparable role (e.g. German 'Juniorprofessur'). He or she will have demonstrated pedagogical aptitude and academic excellence, the latter being generally established on the basis of the quality of his/her doctoral research in German Linguistics and subsequent achievements, as applicable. In accordance with art. 10(3)(1) of the Bavar-ian Higher Education Employment Act (BayHSchPG), candidates must not be more than 52 years of age at the time of their appointment. The University of Passau actively promotes equal opportunities for all genders as well as diversity in the workforce; therefore, applications are welcome from all candidates who fulfil the requisite qualifications, without regard to gender, cultural or social background, religion, world view, disability or sexual identity. As the University of Passau wishes to raise the proportion of women in research and teaching, female academics are expressly encouraged to apply. This post may be available parttime, provided a suitable number of candidates are willing to work on a work-share basis. Furthermore, this post is suitable for those with severe disabilities. Severely disabled persons are given preference over nondisabled applicants who do not otherwise have statutory preferential status if their overall personal aptitudes, skills and qualifications are equal. The successful candidate will be educated to doctoral level and - if applying directly for the W2 tenured position - either possess a formal postdoctoral qualification, such as the German 'Habilitation', or equivalent academic achievements garnered within or outside the higher education system or as part of a prior assistant professor or comparable role (e.g. German 'Juniorprofessur'). He or she will have demonstrated pedagogical aptitude and academic excellence, the latter being generally established on the basis of the quality of his/her doctoral research and subsequent achievements, as applicable; for applicants for the W1 tenure track, the appointments committee will be looking for a doctoral thesis of exceptional quality. In accordance with art. 10(3)(1) of the Bavarian Higher Education Employment Act (BayHSchPG), candidates must not be more than 52 years of age at the time of their appointment. The tenure-track career path is prescribed in the tenure track statutes (German text), which include provisions on quality assurance structures, procedures and standards. Advancement from the fixed-term tenure-track professorship to the tenured professorship will proceed in line with the criteria defined in this quality assurance concept. This concept requires that candidates for this career path have completed a doctorate at a university other than the University of Passau and/or have worked in an academic position outside the University of Passau for a minimum of two years.
