LUDWIG-MAXIMILIANS-UNIVERSITÄT MÜNCHEN 

As one of Europe’s leading research universities, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich is committed to the highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching. Building on its more than 500-year-long tradition, it offers a broad spectrum that covers all areas of knowledge within its 18 Faculties, ranging from the humanities, law, economics and social sciences, to medicine and the natural sciences. 

The Faculty of History and the Arts invites applications for a

Professorship (W2) (6 years/tenure track) of Musicology

commencing on 1 April 2019.

The professorship covers musicology, focusing on medieval and early modern music history in teaching as well as in research. An additional research focus on systematic musicology, popular music research or digital humanities is desirable.

LMU Munich seeks to appoint a highly qualified junior academic to this professorship and, therefore, especially encourages early-career scholars to apply. Prerequisites for this position are a university degree and a doctoral degree or a comparable specific qualification. With an excellent record in research and teaching to date, prospective candidates will have demonstrated the potential for an outstanding academic career.

The initial appointment will be for six years. After a minimum of three years, it can be converted into a permanent position pending a positive evaluation of the candidate’s performance in research and teaching as well as his or her personal aptitude and if all legal conditions are met.

Under the terms of the “LMU Academic Career Program”, in exceptional cases and subject to outstanding performance in research and teaching, the position may be converted from a W2 into a W3 Full Professorship at a later date. 

LMU Munich is committed to providing newly appointed professors with various types of support, such as welcoming services and assistance for dual career couples. 

LMU Munich is an equal opportunity employer. The University continues to be very successful in increasing the number of female faculty members and strongly encourages applications from female candidates. LMU Munich intends to enhance the diversity of its faculty members. Furthermore, disabled candidates with essentially equal qualifications will be given preference.

Please submit your application comprising a curriculum vitae, documentation of academic degrees and certificates, as well as a list of publications to the Dean of the Faculty of History and the Arts by email to the address W2MW@lrz.uni-muenchen.de, no later than May 24, 2018.
