Dear Colleagues,

The job announcement below may interest some of you.

Best regards,

The Faculty of Cultural Studies at Munich University (LMU) invites
applications for a

Professorship (W2) in the field of East Asian Religion and Philosophy  (6
years/tenure track)

Candidates demonstrating excellent research and teaching abilities in the
field of East Asian Buddhism are preferred. Responsibilities include
cooperation with interfaculty courses in religious studies and doctoral
programs in Buddhist Studies.

Prerequisites for the position are a doctoral degree, teaching skills and

taught in English, but acquiring a working knowledge of German is
necessary and will be expected. The initial appointment will usually be
for six years. After positive evaluation, the appointment can become
permanent (but no sooner than 3 years after the initial appointment). In
exceptional cases involving outstanding qualifications, the appointment
may be permanent from the beginning.

In general the age of 52 should not be exceeded at the time of
appointment, though exceptions may be considered if outstanding.

The University of Munich is interested in increasing the number of female
faculty members. Women, therefore, are especially encouraged to apply.

The University supports dual career couples.

The University is an equal opportunity employer and handicapped candidates
with equal qualifications will be given preference.

Applications will include: a letter explaining your interest, a detailed
cv, a list of courses taught, a list of publications. Please submit
