TU Darmstadt is one of Germany's leading and most dynamic technical universities and has a worldwide reputation. The research, teaching and technology transfer at TU Darmstadt are characterised by engineering and natural sciences, which cooperate closely with the focused humanities and social sciences. TU Darmstadt is an important engine of economic and technological development in the metropolitan region Frankfurt-Rhine-Main.

As part of the Female Professor Programme of the Federal and State Governments,

visiting professorships for talents from industry

are to be filled at five engineering-technical departments for a duration of 1-2 semesters.

The aim of the visiting female professor programme at TU Darmstadt is to make female role models in engineering visible and to expand networking and career paths between industry and science. With its gender equality-oriented appointment policy, TU Darmstadt is actively contributing to the increase of the proportion of women in top scientific positions.

You have a doctorate, are in a leadership position and are currently working in a research or development-related department at an industrial company. You are interested in teaching and researching at the university for one to two semesters, establishing new contacts and cooperations, promoting the exchange between companies and universities and sparking students' enthusiasm for your subject area. Additionally, it is desirable that professional experience is imparted to students and doctoral candidates within the framework of career events.

Within the framework of a (partial) sabbatical, visiting professorships are filled for a fixed term of up to 12 months, either full-time or part-time. Employment is scheduled to commence on 01 September 2023. The remuneration is based on TU Darmstadt's regulations for visiting professors (flat-rate remuneration).
