Directive on the allocation of funding within the framework of the Equal Opportunities Concept (EOC)

Grant Line 2: Support for female junior professors and postdocs through 0.5 academic staff positions


I. General information

To support female junior professors and postdocs at Paderborn University in their research work, the Executive Board has set up a pool of academic staff positions within the framework of its Equal Opportunities Concept.

II. Eligibility/Level of funding available

Female junior professors and postdocs from all Paderborn University faculties are eligible to apply for this funding line. Under this scheme, female applicants can make a one-time application to appoint a 0.5 academic staff member (TV-L E 13) for a period of 12 months to support them in their research work.

III. Application form and deadline

Applications in this funding line must be submitted together with applications in the “Incentive scheme to increase the proportion of women in professorships” and “Provision of a 0.5 academic staff position/staff appropriations pool for female graduates” funding lines as a complete package by the faculties to the Executive Board, which decides on the allocation of funding. Applications can be submitted to the Executive Board via the respective dean’s office by 15 June of each year. The relevant faculty closing dates for submissions for internal shortlisting will be announced by each dean’s office. The funding provided must generally be spent in the 12 months following the application deadline.

If there are several applications in a given faculty, the faculty must prioritise these. The shortlist (max. three applications) for submission to the Executive Board should be drawn up by the faculty in co-operation with the Equal Opportunities Officer.

Female junior professors applying for this funding line should hold the right to confer doctorates in their faculty, and postdocs be granted the right to confer doctorates in their faculty (e.g. ad hoc decision).

The following documents must be enclosed with the application:

  • CV, including comprehensive information on the applicant’s academic career and key areas of research
  • Certificates
  • List of publications
  • Details of the research project
  • Plans for the deployment of the 0.5 academic staff member applied for
IV. Duration of funding

The duration of the funding period is one year.

V. Reporting obligations

At the end of the funding period, a status report on the research project, as well as on the PhD proposal of the person appointed and their intentions for further funding must be submitted to the Executive Board.
