science and represent the scientific section of the CSSB as a link
between regeneration and prevention.
A comprehensive commitment is essential in order to establish and
develop the CSSB, as well as a

expertise will have a central
focus on training sciences (diagnostics, prevention, intervention and
rehabilitation), movement
sciences (evaluation of function-oriented motor control in individual
and team sports) and biomechanics
(biological adaptation of the movement apparatus during high performance
sports motion). The successful
candidate requires an internationally proven record in two or more of
these disciplines.

different MSc and BA courses in
sport history is desired. A comprehensive commitment is essential in

the CSSB, as well as a personal dedication to university research and
teaching. Areas of expertise

education, which are to be analysed
in the context of specialisation, talent promotion, biographic and
gender research. The successful
candidate requires a proven record in several of these disciplines.
Furthermore, practical experience
in socially relevant teaching and research, as well as an enthusiasm for
advisory activities in sports
politics, are desired.

Both professors are fundamentally expected to build a close cooperation
