Applications to:


Part-time with half the regular working hours of a full-time employee. The position is limited until 31.12.2020 as part of the above-mentioned pilot project (§ 14 para. 1 sentence 2 no. 1 TzBfG).

The position will cover the teaching areas of nanostructure sciences and physics.


The orientation course is designed as a two-semester orientation phase, which precedes the subsequent six or seven-semester subject-related course. This is an optional focus within the framework of the model degree course. The aims of the innovative model are to expand the target group of potential STEM students, to facilitate the introductory phase of studies by compensating for different learning requirements, to prevent students from dropping out and changing subjects, to acquire key skills relevant to successful study at an early stage and to increase the proportion of women in STEM subjects.



  • Participation in the implementation of the model degree program as of 01.10.2019 in cooperation with the other project participants
  • Development and implementation of a specific advisory concept including the development of a range of information and assessment options to check individual preferences in coordination with the other central and decentralized offers; testing of the advisory concept in the jointly developed structure of the model degree program
  • Conception and organization of new courses (lecture series, orientation preliminary courses, tutorials, workshops, practical projects, work placements), implementation of courses/group events, guidance of tutorials as part of the orientation course
  • Coordination and adaptation of sample timetables; dovetailing with the orientation phase of the subsequent subject-specific study components, interdisciplinary cooperation
  • Participation in the development of a joint regional and nationally effective student marketing strategy, including operational implementation for the model degree program for the first two study cohorts
  • Participation in the evaluation of the pilot project during the funding period until 31.12.2020
  • Participation in project documentation and project reporting



  • Academic university degree (Diplom, Master's or state examination) in a STEM subject (mathematics, computer science, natural and technical sciences) with at least good grades and relevant experience in the STEM field


An advantage:

  • A thorough and independent way of working combined with a high level of teamwork, organizational skills and an interest in supporting and advising first-year students are expected
  • Experience in university didactics
  • Experience in supporting and advising first-year students
  • Teaching experience in courses in the first semesters of a STEM subject
