Appointment procedure at Paderborn University
The appointment of professors is one of the most important tasks of Paderborn University. The professors we appoint are our most effective instrument when it comes to building our profile. In line with our principle of selecting the best candidates based on merit, we look for scientists and academics who are outstanding both professionally and personally and who are highly motivated and committed to helping us shape the university in terms of research, teaching and self-governance and to compete at national and international level. In view of the large number of legal requirements, we aim to make the appointment procedure as transparent and speedy as possible.
If you have any questions regarding the appointment procedure, please contact Division 4.2, which assists with and supports all appointment procedures at Paderborn University and acts in an advisory capacity for the appointment committee.
