It’s not just a job, it’s a calling
Since completing your doctoral studies you have established yourself in the scientific community and are now looking to take the next step? Due to the high level of qualification required, becoming a full professor is as much a calling as it is an appointment.
As a full professor, you are not only an expert in your field, you also have the management skills necessary to support and promote junior researchers in your unit. In addition to research and teaching, you are also expected to contribute to the university’s self-governance, and use your network of contacts in the scientific community to strengthen the university’s knowledge transfer efforts and its contributions to society (third mission).
