Career Path Professor: What Does “Practice” Mean?
Date and time
Friday, 7 June 2019, 2 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Beuth Hochschule für Technik
Scholars with a PhD who are interested in a professorship at a university for applied sciences (Hochscule für angewandte Wissenschaften)
This workshop addresses preparation for the application process for a professorship based on the law BerlHG § 100 (4).
Securing a professorship at an institution of higher education (Hochschule) requires several years of practical experience, which can be a hurdle for some applicants.
This workshop will inform you about what the relevant factors are in Berlin and what you should consider in planning an application. What does this mean for your own planning, and to what extent can an application be prepared for? What resources are available for helping you to convincingly present your background in personal interviews?
