Junior professorships at EUF

Since 2002, Europa-Universität Flensburg has appointed junior professorships to advance the careers of early-stage researchers. The junior professorship model is thus a firmly anchored component of the university’s structured career path objectives. EUF has routinely offered such positions since 2010, and its commitment to promoting professorships with tenure-track whenever possible has been a part of its structural and developmental plans since 2014.

Services and Support for Junior Professors

Europa-Universität Flensburg offers extensive services for its employees. The following offers could be of particular interest for the qualification phase of junior professors:

The Project “Promotion of Quality and Internationalisation of Tenure Track Professorships (FQI)”

Europa-Universität Flensburg will receive financial support from the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States to support four new professorships. EUF was successful in the open, nationwide competition for a total of 532 tenure-track professorships and is one of 57 universities whose concepts are being funded.

Funding: Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States

Duration: December 1, 2019 - November 30, 2032

Scope of funding: Approximately € 3.7 million

Program objective: The nationwide establishment of tenure-track professorships (TTP) as a potential career path to professorship

Project objective for EUF: To use the financial support granted by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States, and to test and further develop new funding approaches for TTP.

Planned tenure-track professorship appointments:

  • Sports science with a focus on sports sociology
  • Modern German Literary Studies
  • Sociological theory with a focus on conflict research in the European context
  • Plural economics

Project phase: The job announcements were published and the deadline for submission was 16.04.2020.

Plannable career paths

EUF introduced junior professorships in 2002 and junior professorships with tenure track in 2010. The funding of these four professorships (start date: December 1, 2019) strengthens the university‘s existing project by establishing the tenure-track professorship as an additional career path at EUF, thereby strengthening our support of early-career researchers by enabling us to offer them more predictable career paths.

Family service, coaching, and a one-semester stay at a university abroad

EUF‘s approved project "Promotion of Quality and Internationalisation of Tenure Track Professorship" provides for a one-semester research and teaching stay at a university abroad as an offer to junior professors, an (extended) family and welcome service, further training opportunities in teaching and research; coaching opportunities, and the responsibility for one’s own teaching units (modules), among other things.

Support and Internationalization

These funding approaches aim to help junior professors establish their own research area, and to promote the internationalisation of this career path at EUF.

The Tenure Track Programme of the Federal Government and the Länder

In 2016, the Federal Government and the Länder adopted the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States, which aims to make the careers of early-career researchers at universities more predictable and transparent. The program seeks to anchor and permanently establish the tenure-track professorship as an independent career path, alongside traditional forms of qualification towards a professorship at German universities.
