WISNA Professorships

Our WISNA Professorships

On this page you will find current information about the WISNA professorships at the UDE.

Due to the underlying distribution key, the funding application was reduced by two professorships (to 21), which can be applied for in the second round of applications in 2019. In an internal procedure, 23 profile-sharpening research areas were identified, which will be covered by the WISNA professorships.

The professorships will be announced in three cohorts in 2018 (9 positions), 2019 (7 positions) and 2020 (7 positions). Particular importance is attached to fair and transparent appointment procedures. The criteria for assessing applicants* and the evaluation criteria for the tenure track will be communicated clearly and at an early stage.
