Candidates are expected to have a relevant university degree, preferably in pharmacy, high pedagogical aptitude, a demonstrated ability for scientific research generally proven by an excellent doctoral degree in addition to a Habilitation or proof of equivalent scientific achievements, and independence in the field of pharmaceutical and medicinal 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 until the age of 52. 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.
