    Documents Required

    The application must be in English and include

    • A curriculum vitae
    • Degree certificate
    • A complete list of publications
    • A statement of future research plans and information about research activities
    • Teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here.


    • All interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background. Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.
    • Letter of reference : If you want a referee to upload a letter of reference on your behalf, please state the referee’s contact information when you submit your application. We strongly recommend that you make an agreement with the person in question before you enter the referee’s contact information, and that you ensure that the referee has enough time to write the letter of reference before the application deadline.
