The ZEW is one of six Leibniz economic research institutes in Germany (www.zew.de). It focuses on applied empirical research and its main goals are economic policy research and evidence-based policy advising. The holder of the position will be granted leave from ZEW for the duration of the professorship and will assume the role of head of the ‘Health Care Markets and Health Policy’ group. The group is dedicated to the analysis of health care markets and the evaluation of health policy measures. Teaching duties at the School of Business, Economics and Society at FAU comprise two semester hours. Candidates will be expected to be actively involved in the degree programmes offered by the School, in particular the Master’s degree programme in Health Management and Health Economics and the Bachelor’s degree programmes in Business and Economics and Social Economics.

Successful candidates demonstrate excellent academic achievements in research and teaching at the highest international standards. You have substantial research experience abroad and/or international cooperations as well as experience in managing research projects and in raising third-party funding. A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and pertinent teaching experience are prerequisites. Candidates who have advanced working knowledge of English and German and are able and willing to teach in both English and German are desired. The position also requires additional postdoctoral qualifications. These should be in the form of a habilitation (postdoctoral thesis) or equivalent academic qualifications. You may also have acquired the necessary qualifications in a non-university context or through a junior faculty position (for example as W1 Professor or Assistant Professor).

FAU expects applicants to become actively involved in administering academic affairs and in developing strategic initiatives. FAU pursues a policy of intense student mentoring and therefore expects its teaching staff to be present during lecture periods.
