The Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum seeks to fill as soon as possible a


We seek a nationally and internationally visible, scientifically outstanding personality with a strong commitment to fundamental experimental research. A strong network within the construction industry and leadership experience is of advantage. The prospective holder of the position should complement the existing focus of the faculty, especially in the fields of sustainable construction and structural preservation, underground construction, and automation, and actively develop these further.

Excellence in several of the following fields is desired:

  • Environmentally sound concretes and innovative binders,
  • Circular construction,
  • Building materials for additive and industrial manufacturing,
  • Multifunctional and smart building materials,
  • Experimental methods for the evaluation and repair of aged concrete structures,
  • Novel and non-destructive testing methods,
  • Non-metallic reinforcement and load-bearing fiber composites.
      extent: full-time
      duration: permanent employment
      beginning: as soon as possible
      closing date: 15.11.2022

      For experimental research, a comprehensively equipped building materials laboratory is available as part of the KIB-KON experimental infrastructure, which is jointly used by the faculty colleagues.

      Positive evaluation as a junior professor, habilitation or equivalent academic achievement and evidence of special aptitude are just as much required as a willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and to be involved in university processes according to Ruhr-Universität Bochum’s mission statement.

      We expect furthermore:

      • strong commitment to teaching, including involvement in the faculty's courses that are taught in English;
      • willingness to engage in interdisciplinary scientific work;
      • willingness and proven ability to acquire significant third-party funded research projects and to participate in research collaborations.

      Complete applications (letter of application, CV, list of publications, evidence of special suitability for academic teaching, list of engineering projects worked on, list of personally acquired research funds), exclusively in digital form, should be sent under the specification ANR 1115 to the Dean of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the RUB by E-Mail:, no later than November 15, 2022.

      The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of Germany’s leading research universities, addressing the whole range of academic disciplines. A highly dynamic setting enables researchers and students to work across the traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. To create knowledge networks within and beyond the university is Ruhr-Universität Bochum’s declared aim.

      The Ruhr-Universität Bochum stands for diversity and equal opportunities. For this reason, we favour a working environment composed of heterogeneous teams, and seek to promote the careers of individuals who are underrepresented in our respective professional areas. The Ruhr-Universität Bochum expressly requests job applications from women. In areas in which they are underrepresented they will be given preference in the case of equivalent qualifications with male candidates. Applications from individuals with disabilities are most welcome.
