Our profile
Comprising 17 departments in the natural and engineering sciences as
well as the humanities and social sciences, TU Dortmund University is a
dynamic university with a strong profile in research, teaching, promotion
of young scientists and transfer.

Profile of the professorship
Your research in sports science will focus on the social-psychological
or the educational-psychological dimension of sport for adolescents,
which fundamentally link up with empirical research into school sports.
You will continue to develop this focus with a view to (international) vis-
ibility, participating in research networks and collaborations within and
outside of TU Dortmund University, especially the “Dortmunder Zentrum
für Schulsportforschung”. You will also be committed to promoting early
career researchers. In teaching, you will be responsible for all aspects of
Sports Psychology, particularly in the teacher education programs, and
will be expected to participate appropriately in the department’s teach-
ing activities.

Your qualifications
You will have obtained a doctorate with above-average success and have
acquired a post-doctoral lecture qualification (Habilitation) or an equiva-
lent qualification. You will have demonstrated your research excellence in
the field covered by the professorship through national and international
publications in recognized peer-reviewed venues. You will have experi-
ence in successfully obtaining third-party funding. Beyond this, for the
W3 professorship, candidates are expected to have a continuous interna-
tional publication record at a high level in venues with peer review and to
have been highly visible internationally, especially in the last five years.
Furthermore, candidates for the W3 professorship will have independent-
ly acquired research projects in competitive selection procedures. All
candidates will also have experience in teaching Sports Psychology.
Social and leadership skills and the willingness to participate in academic
self-administration will complete your profile. Moreover, the recruitment
requirements in Sections 36 and 37 of the North Rhine-Westphalia Higher
Education Act (Gesetz über die Hochschulen des Landes Nordrhein-West-
falen, HG) apply.

Attractive environment
We offer an excellent academic environment
and attractive cooperation opportunities with
renowned international, national, and regional
partners. The metropolitan Ruhr Area with the
University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr) guarantees
short distances to a diversity of partners from
science and industry. With our Dual Career
Service, we support your partner in finding pro-
fessional opportunities in the region, if desired.
We will be happy to provide information about
housing and living in Dortmund and help you
find childcare options. If you are coming to us
from abroad, our Welcome Service will support
you upon your arrival in Germany.

A central goal of TU Dortmund University is to
promote diversity and equal opportunities. We
strive to significantly increase the percent-
age of women in research and teaching and
therefore welcome applications from female
academics. We give preference to severely dis-
abled applicants if their qualifications meet the

family and career and promote gender equality
in academia and research.
