We offer positions in these areas


The W2 professorship finds an innovative international working environment at the THI with many exciting tasks in the three areas of teaching, research, transfer as well as in academic self-administration. The focus can be placed on both teaching and research. Teaching (18 SWS) is the focus of professorships with a teaching focus. The W2 professorship with a focus on research (research professorship) offers professors who are committed to research the possibility of a teaching load reduction of up to 9 semester hours per week. The award of the research professorship is usually limited to a period of 5 years. Reappointment is possible for an unlimited period of time after positive evaluation of the semester-by-semester proof of research performance. You can find out more about the main research areas at the THI here.

Currently, around 30 research professors are conducting research primarily in the CARISSMA institutes C-IAD, C-ISAFE and C-ECOS as well as in the AI mobility node "AImotion Bavaria".

Career paths

Two different career paths are offered in the "Professional Tenure Track".

The "Doctoral Track" is aimed at professional practitioners with an excellent Master's degree and at least five years of professional experience, who acquire the academic qualification for a professorship at a University of Applied Sciences (HAW) through the programme. The focus is on the academic post-qualification of experienced professional practitioners with professorial potential.

The "Praxis Track" is aimed at post-docs who, within the framework of the programme, primarily complete the legally required practical work for an HAW professorship. The focus is on the practical post-qualification of outstanding post-docs with professorial potential.

Procedure of the programme

The PTTTHI consists of three phases for both tracks:

In the orientation phase (approx. 6 months), candidates prepare for the programme depending on the chosen career path, for example by finding the partner company (practice track) or doctoral topic (doctoral track). In addition, a personal development plan is drawn up with individual programme goals to be achieved in the Professional Tenure Track Programme.

In the four- to five-year implementation phase, the young professors are independently assigned tasks of a professorship in teaching, research and self-administration. In parallel, either practical experience is gained at a partner company (practical track) or a doctorate is completed (doctoral track). The PTTTHI professorship is assigned to a faculty and a research group at the THI.

The final graduation phase can start in the 4th or 5th year, depending on individual progress. In this phase, the final evaluation is carried out, in which a decision is made about taking over as a regular W2 professor. Application for the expert appointment procedure is possible after four years at the earliest.

Over the five-year programme period, the professors will be accompanied by two experienced mentors from their own subject area and will also benefit from a qualification programme through which they will acquire all the necessary knowledge and appointment requirements for being taken on as a regular professor.

Key Facts

  • Remuneration analogous to W1
  • Work in applied research
  • Affiliation to a faculty
  • 6-9 shours per week teaching per semester
  • Aim: appointment to a regular professorship (after max. 5 years)
