Additional Information on the Appointment Process

Greetings of the rector

Dear Sir or Madam, Dear colleagues,

The appointment of a professor is one of the most important decisions of a university. Both excellence in teaching and research, as well as the university’s profile are directly dependent on the skills and objectives of the professors. They create the knowledge that shapes the future.

For this reason, it is in the interest of our university to apply the highest standards in the appointment procedure for chairs. This means transparent, gender-sensitive, swift and fair procedures, respecting international standards.

I am very pleased to be able to jointly conduct with you pleasant, trustful and successful appointment procedures. In particular, you as our newly appointed professors shall be assured that we will do our utmost to make you feel at ease at our university and provide you with excellent working conditions.

For your fresh start, I wish you all the best!

Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. DEng/Auckland Hans Müller-Steinhagen

Rector of Technische Universität Dresden
