Visiting Professorships to LMU Munich
As part of the Academic Cooperation Program with UC Berkeley, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich offers visiting professorships to UC Berkeley faculty.
The professorships are open to tenure and tenure-track UCB faculty in the Humanities and Social Sciences (detailed list of eligible departments and programs).
Visiting professors will be given the opportunity to dedicate their time largely to their own research projects and to collaborative projects with LMU faculty. They will be asked to present their current research projects at LMU in form of a public lecture. Depending on the length of their stay, visiting professors are encouraged to contribute to teaching through one of the following options:
- Teaching or co-teaching a class of graduate or postgraduate students
- Participating in an LMU-UCB workshop. Financial means for inviting doctoral students or colleagues from Berkeley will be available.
- Giving a lecture
The program is funded within the framework of "LMU-UCB Research in the Humanities" with appropriation from the third line of funding of the Excellence Initiative.
