Professorship in Building Physics/Building Construction

Deggendorf Institute of Technology

Young, dynamic and under construction, the European Campus in Pfarrkirchen is a diverse
workplace and an exceptional place to learn, teach and research. A creative and committed
academic personality is therefore to be recruited in order to help the location achieve
international renown.

For the winter semester 2021/2022 or later, we are offering a professorship (d/m/f)
at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (salary bracket W2)

in the subject area "Building Physics/Building Construction".

The main teaching and research focus for this position is the design and planning of energyefficient,
resource-saving, recyclable building products and buildings. The currently applicable
legal regulations – such as the Building Energy Act (GEG 2020) – form the basis for the planning
and dimensioning of residential and non-residential buildings with the inclusion of sustainable
and renewable forms of energy. For this purpose, the findings and results of a cross-trade,
integral CAD-3D plan must also be analysed and evaluated with the help of computer
simulations (building performance simulations).

Another focal point is the physical planning and dimensioning of building products and buildings
with regard to sound, heat/moisture, light and acoustics. Based on the building's usage,
students should be taught how to dimension and specify the components to be used (shell,
interior, building envelope). Knowledge of the necessary certifications, including structural
testing (solid and lightweight construction), must also be taught in accordance with the legal

As a foundation for these focal points, further teaching content should include the principles of
civil engineering in CAD-2D/3D planning, construction informatics, structural engineering and
building materials science. The treatment of sustainable concepts, as well as their theoretical
and practical application in the individual areas, are especially important.

In addition to teaching and research, other tasks include collegial cooperation in the
development of new teaching concepts, involvement in the self-administration of the university,
and supporting the development of the European Campus Rottal-Inn. The aim is to set up new
laboratory facilities or use those of industrial partners, in order to provide students with a
practical, modern education. Experience in the acquisition of third-party funding and
management of R&D projects is highly desirable.

Due to the international orientation of the European Campus Rottal-Inn, teaching takes place
in both German and English. Additionally, the position calls for international coordination with
European universities and companies. Very good written and spoken English is therefore a
prerequisite, as is a very good knowledge of German.
Job requirements:

- Completed university education;
- Exceptional research skills, usually demonstrated by a doctoral qualification;
- Pedagogical aptitude;
- Special achievements in the application or development of scientific knowledge and
methods in professional practice lasting at least five years, which must have been
acquired after the completion of academic studies, and of which at least three years must
be outside of the academic sector.

In special cases, professional practice outside of the
academic sector may be demonstrated by the fact that a significant part of the
professional activity was carried out in cooperation between the academic institution and
non-academic professional practice over a period of at least five years.
The position is suitable for severely disabled persons. Severely disabled applicants will be given
preference if they essentially have equal qualifications, competence and professional

The European Campus Rottal-Inn is centrally located. It is found in the charming regional town
of Pfarrkirchen, which forms part of the administrative district of Lower Bavaria, situated in the
south-east of Germany. The town lies between the Danube and the Inn rivers in an idyllic
location offering many leisure activities. Pfarrkirchen has excellent school and educational
facilities. Attractive cities nearby include Salzburg, Regensburg and Passau, and Munich
International Airport is just a 90-minute drive away. Its proximity to Austria and the Czech
Republic places the town in the centre of Europe.
