The following positions are available to be filled at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich beginning in the winter term 2023/24: Professorship for Painting (all genders) / Professorship for Painting and the Graphic Arts (all genders).

The Academy is seeking two artists who exhibit outstanding artistic qualities and whose work has made a substantial contribution to contemporary art. The professorship is associated with an artistic class for painting or an artistic class for painting and the graphic arts.

Applicants are required to have the corresponding educational qualifications as well as to be willing to be active within the scope of the self-administration of the Academy.

A further condition of employment is a completed university education in a field of work relevant for the subject. Deviations from this condition are only possible in exceptional cases if outstanding subject-related achievements in the field and educational suitability can be demonstrated and there is specific official interest.

The employment conditions are pursuant to Section 57 of the Bayerisches Hochschulinnovationsgesetz (BayHIG, Bavarian Higher Education Innovation Act) from August 5, 2022, the service law-related professorship status to Section 58 of the BayHIG, and the job-related duties to Section 59 of the BayHIG. Persons who have already turned 52 years of age cannot be granted civil servant status. Persons who are beyond 52 years of age may be employed as salaried professors. Probational civil service can be converted into tenured civil service status after 18 months at the earliest (Section 58 BayHIG).

The Academy of Fine Arts Munich advocates diversity, a multiplicity of perspectives, and equal opportunity. Applications from persons with severe disabilities or the equivalent thereof are encouraged and will be given priority in the case of otherwise essentially the same qualifications, skills, and professional achievements. In the spirit of equal opportunity, applications from women are particularly welcome. In the case of the same qualifications, skills, and professional achievements, women will be given priority, provided there are no overriding reasons in the person of a competing applicant.

We request that you therefore send us your substantive and complete documents (cover letter, CV, educational credentials, employment references, verification of additional qualifications, educational suitability and other activities) directly via our online application portal by April 3, 2023 (deadline*) at the latest.
