Your path to a professorship

This list describes the selection procedure taken when a professor vacancy opens at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. Initially, a proposal for a new professorship is sent to the Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and Arts. After this proposal is approved, the job advert is posted online and advertised in print media. After DIT starts to receive applications for the job opening, the following steps are taken:

 

1. application period

The Department of Human Resources checks whether each applicant meets the formal criteria for the appointment as professor, then sends a full list of applicants to the appointment committee after the application deadline closes (usually after 4-6 weeks).
The appointment committee consists of:

  • 4-6 professors with voting rights and 1 external assessor
  • The woman‘s representative of the relevant faculty
  • A research assistant of the relevant faculty
  • A student of the relevant faculty
  • An external assessor without voting rights

 

2. selection phase

First committee meeting: applicants are reviewed, date and compulsory topic for first of the two-part trial lecture is set. HR completes an in-depth second check of formal appointability prior to the trial lecture. Suitable candidates receive invitations for the trial lecture. The compulsory topic is given to candidates 2-3 weeks prior to the lecture, the elective topic for the second presentation is chosen by candidates themselves.


3. trial lecture and committee listing

On the day of trial lecture, the candidates hold lectures on both of their two topics, followed by a Q&A with the audience. Other than the appointment committee, other members of faculty and staff such as senate members or the university president can be present for this part of the trial lectures. Finally, a last interview is conducted by the committee, who then pick their top three candidates for the position. This process can vary in length. Candidates are then notified by HR.

4. committee phase & appointment

Informal meetings with the president to meet the top three are organised. These candidates are discussed during university leadership and senate meetings, then
a final decision based on the appointment committee listing is made.

An offer of a professorship is sent to the leading candidate, who has four weeks to accept. Appointment negotiations are held with the president.

Potential starting dates are at the beginning of the winter or summer semester (usually 1st of September/October or March/April respectively).

I really enjoy being a professor of intercultural management ... teaching students about culture in a place where they can walk out of the classroom and immediately apply those new skills is both exciting and fulfilling for me as a teacher. Being able to do research in this international environment, with a wonderful team of international colleagues, makes DIT an exceptional place to work.
