Information on employment as a student assistant (SHK)

Attention: The English forms are only intended as instructions for completion. The forms are only to be filled in and submitted in the German version!

 

SHKs are students who are employed to provide scientific or artistic support and who do not yet have a professionally qualifying university degree (e.g. Bachelor) in the subject assigned to their employment.

General information:

Please print out documents double sided if possible, punch holes and, for documents with more than one sheet, connect all sheets firmly!

Please submit applications in full to the HR department at least four weeks before the start of the contract. Timely processing may otherwise not be ensured. If the application is late, we may have to postpone the start of employment, which in the worst case can lead to an interruption of employment for the assistant. Please be sure to therefore adhere to the lead times.

The employment contract, which becomes valid after being countersigned by the university, will be sent to the assistant after processing by email. It is important to please ensure that the email address provided is correct.

The state office for salaries and pensions provides important information for student assistants with this information sheet.

[Please note that the display of the forms is optimized for viewing in MS Internet Explorer from version 9! In alternative internet browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc. the PDF files may need to be saved locally beforehand (right-click, then "save file as") and then open the file in Adobe Reader or an alternative PDF viewer.]
