Teaching Positions & Guest Lectures

Unfold the Potential. Together. 

As a lecturer, you support us in providing a qualified and comprehensive range of courses - especially in those specialised fields and subject areas that are undergoing constant change. However, we are not only looking for qualified candidates in specialised fields. Lecturers will frequently be responsible for teaching interdisciplinary skills in our schools and for teaching in the programme studierenplus. Doing so, they assume diverse tasks, impart specialised knowledge and relevant core competencies, and create an interplay of theory and practice.

Are you an expert in a particular field and have sound professional experience you wish to share with others without becoming directly involved as a lecturer? We are always looking for experts willing to share their expertise with students in guest lectures. If you are interested, please get in touch with the contact persons for lectureships in our schools. Below you will also find a list of subject areas in our schools suitable for guest lectures. We are happy to further assist you in developing or expanding your didactic skills through our versatile continuing education programme.
