Possible Selection Criteria

Appointments represent a strategic steering element and are subject to high quality standards. In each selection procedure, quality criteria and their selection and weighting therefore play a key role.

The quality criteria are to be listed and weighted as early as possible in the professorial appointment procedure and set and justified by the professorial appointment committee. High, internationally competitive quality standards in research and teaching must be set, and subject-specific aspects must be considered.

Because each appointment procedure is unique, no generally valid criteria can be set. Instead, they must be defined anew for each procedure. Possible criteria could include:

Proven by, e.g.
Excellent research achievements
Professorial appointments, publications,
research awards, patents, fellowships, lectures at renowned conferences

Excellent teaching achievements / university didactic competencies
Teaching experience, evaluation results, teaching awards,
participation in university didactic continuing education courses, promoting teaching and studies in the university self-administration

Ability to obtain external funding
