Professorship (W2) of Disability, Inclusion and Social Participation

This professorship pursues questions related to disability, inclusion and social participation, both in teaching (especially in the Bachelor Program “Social Work” and the Master Programs “Social Work” and “Social Pedagogy in Teaching, Training and Continuing Education”) and research (e.g. within the Research Network of Social Law and Social Policy). This is accomplished in consideration of broader societal developments and social supports for people with disabilities.

Beyond questions concerning service beneficiaries, the professorship explores institutional structures and challenges for inclusion and social participation. Consideration is given to practice fields of social work as well as to the interplay between the latter and (organized) self-help on the one hand and additional professional groups on the other hand.

Required qualifications for this professorship include a doctorate in one of the areas of social sciences or educational sciences, in addition to a scholarly track record and experience in the conduct of empirical research.
