I added the following two lines to my init.el script.

(split-window-vertically)
(other-window 1)

What I now would like to achieve is to start within the current window a term-mode with a bin/bash. How can this be achieved within the init.el? In emacs I run M-x term and then I'm asked if /bin/bash should be run, hit enter and a terminal is running. I'm struggling to achieve the same within the init.el. Thanks for the help

Add (term "/bin/bash") right after what you already have, and that worked on my setup. So you have:

(split-window-vertically)
(other-window 1)
(term "/bin/bash")

Your Emacs should start with (probably) the *scratch* buffer on top, and a term-mode window in a bash shell on the bottom, and your cursor at the command prompt.
