Junior Professorships and Further Professorial Appointments for Young Scholars and Scientists

Junior professorships give young scholars and scientists the possibility to teach and conduct research independently at a very early point of their academic career. Humboldt-Universität was the first German higher education institution to set up these academic positions in 2002, thus providing a new instrument for promoting highly qualified young academics. And presently it has a leading position in terms of junior professors working in teaching and research. Humboldt-Universität has also been very successful in attracting Heisenberg Professorships of the DFG and Lichtenberg Professorships of the Volkswagen Foundation, which are highly competitive on a national scale.
