The Professorship

The professorship is located at the Institute for Inorganic Chemistry and is intended to strengthen the research profile of the institute, in particular its focus on the molecular and material science of boron, e.g. in the field of metal-mediated borylation. Experience in the field of homogeneous catalysis will be a distinct advantage. A willingness to take an active role in ongoing and planned collaborative projects within the faculty is required, e.g. in the field of boron chemistry, as is experience in obtaining external funding. 
The successful candidate will have access to all of the equipment available at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry as well as the adjoining Institute for Sustainable Chemistry and Catalysis with Boron (ICB). Funds for the acquisition of necessary new equipment are available, as are laboratory and office space. The successful candidate will contribute to the teaching of inorganic chemistry (Bachelor and Master degree programs). The University of Würzburg attaches great importance to excellence in the supervision of students and doctoral candidates, and expects high levels of engagement from teaching staff.



Candidates are expected to have a relevant university degree, high pedagogical aptitude, a demonstrated ability for scientific research as usually proven by an excellent Doctoral degree, in addition to a Habilitation or proof of equivalent scientific achievements and independence in the field of molecular inorganic chemistry (e.g. through a successful Junior or Assistant Professorship or equivalent performance in a non-university setting). According to Article 10 paragraph 3 of the Bavarian University Personnel Act, an appointment to civil service can only be made to a candidate under the age of 53. However, exceptions are possible in urgent cases.
The University of Würzburg aims to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and therefore strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female academics. Severely disabled applicants will be given preference in the case of equivalent qualifications.
