Information regarding Calls for Applications for Tenure-Track Professorships (previously W1 professorships with tenure track W3)

In the first round of the Bund-Länder Program for Supporting Junior Researchers, the University of Tübingen obtained funding for 12 professorships. On this website, we have collected the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences’ calls for applications in this program and future calls for applications for tenure-track professorships as well as additional information. Please note that there is a quality assurance concept for the evaluation of tenure-track professors that has been coordinated with the Ministry. For every call for applications for a professorship, there is also a catalog of criteria that is published together with the call.

The new Baden-Württemberg State Higher Education Act will include the category of tenure-track professor as of the spring of 2018 in Sec. 51b. Until then, the term had been “assistant professor with tenure track”. That is why it is possible for those persons who hold such W1 positions to call themselves and be called tenure-track professors. This call for applications is to fill such a tenure-track professorship. It is possible to receive supplements to the basic salary for W1 positions and thus also for tenure-track professors.
