W2-S-Pro­fess­or­ship for „Urbane Mobil­ity“

Work­ing field:

The Fac­ulty of Math­em­at­ics and Nat­ural Sci­ences, Depart­ment of Geo­graphy, in joint appoint­ment with the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (DLR) invites applic­a­tions for a W2-S-Pro­fess­or­ship for „Urbane Mobil­ity“ from as soon as pos­sible.

The chair is asso­ci­ated with the full-time pos­i­tion as Head of the Depart­ment of Mobil­ity and Urban Devel­op­ment at the DLR Insti­tute of Trans­port Research. The joint appoint­ment is inten­ded to deepen the cooper­a­tion between the Insti­tute of Trans­port Research and the Depart­ment of Geo­graphy at Hum­boldt-Uni­versität. Fur­ther net­work­ing with edu­ca­tion and research insti­tu­tions in Ber­lin is desired.


The chair deals with ques­tions of mobil­ity and traffic, espe­cially in urban areas. We are look­ing for a per­son with a sound know­ledge of spa­tial dimen­sions of mobil­ity needs, travel beha­vior and trans­port devel­op­ment. The research focus should emphas­ize the geo­graph­ical and social con­text of mobil­ity. The pos­i­tion requires exper­i­ence with mod­ern meth­ods of quant­it­at­ive and qual­it­at­ive empir­ical data ana­lysis and, desir­ably, with sim­u­la­tion meth­ods. Man­age­ment skills – includ­ing per­son­nel man­age­ment – and extens­ive exper­i­ence in attract­ing and man­aging third-party fun­ded pro­jects are essen­tial. The pro­fess­or­ship includes a teach­ing engage­ment of two semester hours in human geo­graphy at the Depart­ment of Geo­graphy. It is expec­ted that the chair will con­trib­ute to the research work and aca­demic self-admin­is­tra­tion of the depart­ment of Geo­graphy at Hum­boldt-Uni­versität in Ber­lin.

Applic­ants must meet the require­ments for appoint­ment as pro­fessor in accord­ance with § 100 of the `Ber­liner Hoch­schul­ge­setz´.

What we of­fer:

HU and DLR are seek­ing to increase the pro­por­tion of women in research and teach­ing, and spe­cific­ally encour­age qual­i­fied female sci­ent­ists/research­ers to apply. Research­ers from abroad are wel­come to apply. Severely dis­abled applic­ants with equi­val­ent qual­i­fic­a­tions will be given pref­er­en­tial con­sid­er­a­tion. People with a migra­tion back­ground are spe­cific­ally encour­aged to apply.
An import­ant ele­ment of both Hum­boldt-Uni­versität´s and DLR´s per­son­nel policy is the com­pat­ib­il­ity of work and fam­ily life as well as equal oppor­tun­it­ies for per­sons of all genders.
