The options for pursuing a successful academic career at Technische Universität Berlin, including pre-university programs for inquiring young minds, degree programs, doctoral programs and postdoc work, provide an effective incentive for attracting new talent. Maximizing diversity has an important role to play in this process. With regard to doctoral studies, this includes the option to complete a dissertation within an academic chair, cooperative forms of supervision as well as the opportunity to complete external dissertations in collaboration with commercial organizations. For the postdoc phase, the focus is on projects, junior research groups, and junior professorships.
The advancement of outstanding junior scholars is also aided by a targeted flexibilization of the professorial system. Our goal by 2020 is to offer 10% of current W3 professorships (the highest paid category of professorships established in the University's budget) for an initial restricted period of six years as W1 or W2 professorships, thus enabling these positions to also be offered as junior professorships. A new Tenure Track procedure will then allow select junior professors to advance to the next level at Technische Universität Berlin. This concept is intended to enable the University to advance outstanding junior scholars and strengthen their commitment to a future at Technische Universität Berlin, while at the same time developing promising new areas of research.
