The W2 professorship finds an innovative international working environment at THI with many exciting tasks in the three areas of teaching, research, transfer as well as in academic self-administration. The focus can be on teaching as well as on research. Teaching (18 semester hours) is the focus of professorships with a teaching focus. The W2 professorship with a focus on research (research professorship) offers professors the possibility of a teaching load reduction of up to 9 semester hours per week. The research professorship is usually limited to a period of 5 years. Reappointment is possible indefinitely after positive evaluation of the semester-by-semester evidence of research performance.
