Application procedure

For professorships, public advertisements are the rule. Their circulation may vary however.

The profile of a professorship may be defined very broadly or very precisely, which may lead potential candidates to « rule themselves out ». Furthermore, the criteria may change in the course of the procedure according to the applications received.

If you feel that you are qualified and have a solid dossier, you should not hesitate to apply, even if you do not match all the attributes of the requested profile.

In any case, it’s a good idea to contact the institution to ask for more information.

Generally, there are documents that are not widely distributed at the time the vacancy is announced that may help candidates to fine-tune their application.
