Program Details

The aim of the Visiting Professors Program is to attract distinguished researchers from abroad in order to promote the internationalisation of teaching and research and broaden the spectrum of English-taught courses.

The Visiting Professors Program at the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences requires the visiting professors to offer an annual course over a period of 3 to 5 years. This format enables both the visiting professors and the respective colleagues at the University of Tübingen to meet up continuously over a period of several years in order to establish and strenghten research collaboration and professional networks.

Please refrain from applying for this program, we approach suitable candidates directly.
