Online information event for interested scholars
New opportunity to apply for female scholars preparing for a professorship
The ProFiL Programme for female researchers pursuing a professorship has had a history of success since it was first founded in 2004. It is run by Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Technische Universität Berlin. The programme experienced another success when the three cooperating universities, together with Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, won recognition as a consortium with their proposal for the Excellence Strategy com-petition. As part of the Berlin University Alliance, ProFiL can now substantially expand the number of programme participants and can offer an English programme line. From July 2021 to July 2022, 54 high-achieving female researchers will receive support to further develop their careers and prepare them for the leadership and management tasks of a professor.
ProFiL is open for applications from female scholars with a habilitation, habilitation candidates, junior professors, leaders of junior research groups and postdocs at Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung. The English programme line is designed for international female scholars. International researchers based at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin may apply for the English programme line.
Participation in the programme costs 150 Euro. Deadline for applications is 13 November 2020.
Those interested in attending the information event should register with the head of the ProFiL Programme or the ProFiL coordinator. Both are happy to provide further information.
