Tenure-Track Professors appointed since 2017

Friedrich Schiller University has been appointing more and more young researchers into Tenure-Track professoral positions since 2017. This appointment practice is part of the university's long-term strategy to appoint 20 percent of all new professors as Tenure-Track professors and thereby lower the academic age at which these young academics receive their first call for a professoral position. Since 2017, FSU was able to announce 12 additional Tenure-Track professoral positions, as part of the Tenure-Track Programme of the German Government and the Lander. To present, candidates from 10 disciplines have been succesfully appointed and are now in the first phase of their Tenure Track.

Below, you will find an overview of all professorships with Tenure Track at Friedrich-Schiller University (with and without funding of the Programme). For more information, please visit the website of the  Appointment Procedures Department. de
