Professorial Appointment Management

Welcome to the website of the central office of professorial appointment management at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg.

The appointment of new professors is an important and effective tool for shaping the profile of the University of Oldenburg. The orientation of new professorships is closely coordinated with the university's structural and developmental planning efforts as well as the objectives of the schools.

Appointment procedures follow the principle of selecting the best, increasing international competitiveness and fulfilling the legally embedded equal opportunities mandate. In addition to ensuring formally and legally sound appointment procedures, quality management characterized by international standards promotes transparency and objectivity in selection processes. Internal appointment regulations govern the procedure.

The appointment management team supports all procedures, advising and assisting the deans, the appointment committees and the schools' administrators. Division 1 is exclusively responsible for monitoring compliance with employment law in these procedures.
