Special support will be provided for collaborative work with existing international partners such as the ‘European University Transform4Europe’ and the ‘University of the Greater Region’, which we would like to further develop.

Aside from standards set by general employment legislation, eligibility criteria include a University Degree, educational skills, proven aptness for original scientific work (usually documented by the quality of the doctorate or PhD) as well as a track record of past independent research (e.g. in a habilitation, assistant professorship or scientific activity at a university or at a research institution).
