The initial contract runs for three years. After a positive intermediate evaluation it can be renewed for another three years as a W2 professorhsip. After a positive final evaluation, the university offers a (competitive) tenure track, regardless of whether a position is open at that time.

The Research Institute for Discrete Mathematics is a central scientific unit of the University of Bonn and part of the cluster of excellence "Hausdorff Center for Mathematics". The holder of this position will become member of the faculty of mathematics and natural sciences.

The University of Bonn actively supports diversity and equal opportunities. The University of Bonn has been certified as a family-friendly university and offers a dual career service. Its aim is to increase the proportion of women in those fields in which women are underrepresented and to place a special focus on promoting their careers.
