First audition? Applying for professorship – Webcast (4.-8.12.2023)


The aim of the webcast is to provide participants with detailed information about all phases of the appointment procedure for professorships (focus Germany), and to give them concrete advice and tips for their applications.

The webcast will first deal with the procedure and the formal aspects of the appointment process.

Afterwards, all necessary application documents (especially CV, cover letter, research and teaching concept) will be discussed in detail and partly illustrated with sample materials.

The third part addresses all aspects of the hearing. Participants will learn about the requirements for the application talk and the demonstration lecture.

In addition, the most frequently asked questions in the interview with the selection committee will be discussed.

The webcast will be available for streaming via Vimeo (password protected) and the associated materials (handout, sample CVs, interview question list) will be available for download via Dropbox.
