The German Program at Michigan State University invites applications for the position of Max Kade Visiting Professor of German. In the event that Visa applications cannot be obtained in time due to lingering CORONA virus effects on the embassy system, the department expects the Kade professor to commit to participating and teaching virtually in the department.


Candidates must have a Ph.D. with specialization in any area of German Studies, with preference given to those with experience teaching German as a Foreign Language. Candidates must be employed full time at a German university or a university in a German-speaking country, with significant relevant publications in German culture, literature or linguistics, teaching experience, and English language skills.

The successful applicant will be expected to teach an undergraduate German language and culture course for the German Program in the Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages during the Spring 2022 semester. In addition, she or he will participate in the program’s Graduate Colloquium on a specialized topic and will offer a public lecture for the wider University community. Our semester runs from early January through the first week of May; however, precise dates in residence may be flexible in order to accommodate the differences between European and American academic calendars.

Please send a letter of interest and CV to Professor Karin Wurst, Department of LGSAAL (
wurst@msu.edu).

Deadline: July 30, 2021
