Some explanation for the internationals: in the German science system, the “Akademischer Rat a.Z.” position is typically a stepping stone between the PhD / PostDoc level and a permanent professorship. It’s comparable to an assistant professor regarding career stage / expectations.

Feel free to ask question of general interest also via the comment section below.

I will consider applications until the position is filled, also after the application deadline.
