Recruitment of Excellent Academics
An increasing number of academics live in dual career partnerships. The Dual Career Service thus helps the partners of recently appointed professors, both from Germany and abroad, as well as for international junior academics, to find suitable jobs. The Dual Career Service is also available to answer questions on matters such as application processes and further education, and provides information on issues such as housing and childcare to ease the transition to living in Munich.
In order to increase the number of female professors at LMU Munich permanently, the University has developed a Bonus Program for Faculties who appoint women, as an incentive to establishing a balanced appointments policy. Faculties that appoint women can apply for bonus payments, which – in mutual agreement between the Faculty and the newly appointed female professor – can be invested in innovative research projects.
