Doctor, quo vadis?
If a change to the business world is not the right career path, one option for an academic career is the habilitation. The procedure is regulated by the habilitation regulations of the TU Ilmenau. Only those who have proventheir scientific qualification by means of an outstanding doctorate or comparable scientific qualification or who hold an equivalent academic degree from a foreign scientific universitycan be admitted to the habilitation.
The financing can be provided by:
a household position
the acquisition of the own body via third-party funds
a Post Doc Scholarship
via an employment as a junior professor*in
via a tenure track program

Teaching and researching independently at an early stage
Junior professorships are advertised publicly. Please inform yourself on our job portal. Applicants go through a standard appointment procedure. As a junior professor you will perform basically the same tasks as a regular professor. You will be involved in teaching, supervise students and doctoral candidates, apply for external funding, work in committees and carry out administrative tasks. Since you are still in the qualification phase, you also have the opportunity for (inter-)professional further education.
