Margarete von Wrangell Habilitation Programme for Women

The state government advertises the 'Margarete von Wrangell Habilitation Programme for Women' in order to support and increase the number of female junior lecturers. The primary goal of this programme is to encourage qualified women scientists to obtain a postdoctoral teaching qualification (habilitation) and support them financially.

The funding for the habilitation candidates comes in the form of an employment contract in accordance with TV-L (collective agreement of the federal states) at pay grade 13. The funding period totals 5 years, 3 of which are funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts (MWK) and the European Social Fund (ESF) while the other 2 are funded by the respective higher education institution.

Special regulations apply for candidates at the Medical Faculty. The applicant should have already completed some preliminary work for her habilitation and have a binding confirmation from the faculty to continue the funding for a maximum of 2 years.
