Appointments of professors at the Brandenburg University of Technology

Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU) is a young, research-led university of technology that combines features of both traditional universities and universities of applied sciences.

To achieve the targets in the University Development Plan published in 2015, appointments of university professors form the central element in building an academic profile. The university’s overall development will largely depend on the success of the appointment processes that will be carried out over the next few years. That is why it is so important to us that we work with you as best we can both in your journey to your appointment here and afterwards.

On this page and the next few pages you will find information to help with your application for a professorship or junior professorship, the sequence of events in the appointment process, the appointment offer, the contract negotiations process and the employment process.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at any stage if you have any questions. 

We wish you every success with your application.
