Visiting Professorships to UC Berkeley

As part of the Academic Cooperation Program with LMU Munich, the University of California, Berkeley, offers visiting professorships to LMU Faculty.

The professorships are open to tenure and tenure-track LMU faculty in the Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences (detailed list of eligible departments).

Visiting professors will be given the opportunity to dedicate their time largely to their own research projects and to collaborative projects with Berkeley faculty. They will be asked to present their current research projects in Berkeley in the form of a public lecture. Depending on the length of their stay, visiting professors are also encouraged to contribute to teaching through one of the following options:

  • Offering or co-teaching a class to graduate or postgraduate students
  • Participating in an LMU-UCB workshop. Financial means for inviting doctoral students or colleagues from LMU will be available.
  • Giving additional lectures
