The Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies at the University of Tübingen is seeking a
Professor (W1, tenure track) of South Asian Studies
to commence as soon as possible.
The holder of this position will represent the subject of Indology/South Asian Studies with a focus on religion - preferably, Hinduism, Buddhism or Jainism - in research and teaching, and will be able to incorporate historical aspects of the cultures of the Indian subcontinent. The successful candidate is expected to demonstrate very good knowledge of at least one modern South Asian language and at least one historical language, preferably Sanskrit, profound knowledge of contemporary India, and the ability and willingness to collaborate in interdisciplinary research networks.
Required qualifications include an outstanding PhD or equivalent international degree and teaching experience. Researchers with additional academic qualifications are also cordially invited to apply.
This is a tenure-track position and is subject to an interim evaluation after four years and a final evaluation after six years. If the final evaluation is positive, the post will be upgraded to a full (W3) professorship after six years with no re-advertising of the position.
The position has a teaching load of four hours per week prior to interim evaluation, and six hours thereafter.
Here you can find the evaluation criteria for the transition to a full (W3) professorship (link will follow shortly) and our quality assurance plan <https://uni-tuebingen.de/en/faculties/faculty-of-humanities/faculty/vacancies-job-offers/index.php?eID=tx_securedownloads&p=12131&u=0&g=0&t=1596965109&hash=a3298d9a0cad738eed5ae189840393384d558a28&file=/fileadmin/Uni_Tuebingen/Fakultaeten/Philosophie/Fakultaet/Ausschreibungen_Stellenangebote/W1/TT-Satzung_2019_Eilentscheidungsbeschlussfassung_11012019_Englisch.pdf>.
Applicants for a tenure-track professorship with a PhD from Tübingen must have changed universities after completing their doctorates or have worked in academia for at least two years somewhere other than the University of Tübingen. Applications from candidates who have completed a habilitation will not be considered.
The University of Tübingen is particularly interested in increasing the number of women in research and teaching and therefore strongly encourages women candidates to apply. In line with its internationalization agenda, the university welcomes applications from researchers outside Germany. Candidates who do not speak German must be willing to learn it. Applications from equally qualified candidates with disabilities will be given preference.
Send your application together with the required documents (curriculum vitae and outline of academic career, copies of certificates and degrees, publications list, list of teaching experience, overview of core research areas) and up to five publications (the PhD thesis included) in electronic form to the Dean of the Faculty of the Humanities at the University of Tübingen, bewerbungen at philosophie.uni-tuebingen.de <>.

The closing date for applications is October 4, 2020.
