The Faculty of Education and International Studies is in search of a new staff member. For more information about the faculty, read here. The Department of Primary and Secondary Teacher Education, GFU, is advertising a permanent position as professor in the didactics of natural science. The time of appointment will be set after agreement with head of studies.

The Department consists of approximately 2 400 students and around 140 faculty members. The department offers several education programs at the bachelor’s and master’s level, as well as a significant number of further education programmes. GFU currently offers two master programmes, one in ICT-supported development and the other in School Oriented Educational Science. Responsibilities include both teaching and research and development. GFU will experience dynamic development in the near future with the introduction of a new five-year primary and lower secondary teacher education program, beginning in 2017.
